  1. The mythical Greek Titan Atlas played inconspicuous but important role. He supported sky so that it would not fall on earth. Armstrong Whitworth Atlas played less dramatic, but no less important role, supporting the British Army as the mount of the army cooperation squadrons. In total 478 Atlases of all versions were built and the type remained in production from 1927 until 1933. The Atlas Mk.I, and its DC trainer derivative, served with the RAF for eight years, until 1935. The kit is quite a nice vacform from the start of the 90´s, with white metal detail parts apparently by Aeroclub. Army cooperation was not exactly stellar role, and the amount of reference material reflects it. Not that much is available. However, yesterday, while searching for some Atlas references on the internet, I came across https://www.kestrelpublications.com/shop-online. I have not been able to resist, paid, and downloaded Profile #20 today. At first sight, I am excited by its contents, and I am afraid that after thorough reading, more profiles from the offer will follow. I admit, I have not heard about Kestrel Publications before. Do some of you have experience with the printed form of the booklets?
  2. T4284 joined 58 Sqn in November 1940 but its front line operational time was quite short. It suffered a landing accident on its return from a mission on the 23rd December of that year in poor visibility when it undershot on approach to Linton-On Ouse. Following repairs, it was moved to 10 OTU based at Abingdon and given the codes ZG-E as it is represented here. From there, it moved to 19 OTU based at Kinloss where it seen it's flying time out before becoming a ground instructional airframe. The only picture I've managed to find of it is this one (courtesy of www.luchtoorlog.be): I decided to build the Frog kit as oppose to the Fly one as neither have particularly good clear parts. As my skills making new transparancies is quite limited, the Falcon set for the Frog kit swung it for me. I've tried to make most of the corrections known, although I didn't touch the wing root trailing edges. Big thanks to John Aero for the replacement props and General Melchie (Andy) for the Revell Lancaster rear turret which was fettled to look like an FN4 found on the Whitley. Really enjoyed the build and whilst not perfect, I'm happy with what I've achieved. If you've not seen the build, you can see it HERE if you have the patience ! The decals are part of the Xtradecal set which whilst they went on well, the colours are somewhat suspect. The MSG codes were actually light grey so they had to be touched up. The white in the fuselage roundel should probably be darker too, I might tackle this with a black pastel brushing. Enough waffling, here's the pics ! Thanks for looking. Neil
