Hello all, Im interested in building a 1/72 Whirlwind set in Borneo during the 1960s, but my main problem is I don't know the first thing about the Whirlwind really. This is the sort, Im not sure what type of Whirlwind those are, I do note that they have drooped tails and I haven't seen any photos from Borneo without. From what little Ive seen, I know this will take some converting. The only Whirlwind kits I can find at the moment are the old Airfix ones, but they have straight tails. I understand the Italeri H-19B has the right drooped tail but I also understand that they have become hen's teeth. I saw that Heritage Aviation sell a Tropical Nose for a Whirlwind, would that be suitable for Borneo? So, in the current kit climate, where would I begin? Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you, Conor
Hello! I'm hoping this is the correct place for this post because there isn't a section that I thought worked better but never mind. I am building Airfix's C-47 as a present for my great uncle who jumped out of them during his time serving in the SAS in Malaya and Borneo but I need some help! I have no idea as to what paint scheme the dakotas were in when operated by the SAS during the conflicts in Malaya and Borneo, would anybody on here happen to know? I've done lots of searching in books and on the internet but to no avail. Thank you very much, Ben.
