  1. Hi, Boeing 314 Clipper was constructed as luxury passenger airplane at late 1930s. Using this type Pan American company established first regular commmercial flights over northern Atlantic in May 1939. Twelve Clippers were constructed and they were impossed to military service during WWII as C-98. However, as I know, they never wore military insignias (I mean US white stars). Three of them were used in UK by BOAC during WWII. Each model 314 had individual name - the machine with registration NC 18605 had individual name "Dixie Clipper". Initial Pan-American silver painting on Clippers were replaced in 1942 with experimental 10-shades scheme of blue-grey colours. Leter some (or all?) US Clipers were painted to standard 3-shades Navy scheme, and at and of war, when returned to Pan Ameican they were stripped back to NMF. Clippers were used for overseas civil (for example to Lisbon) and military transport, including VIPs. US president Franklin Delano Roosevelt used "Dixie Clipper" to get in January 1943 for a meeting in Casablanca with Winston Churchill and Charles De Gaulle. Josef Stalin was invited to this summit but did not arrived bacause of the situation on eastern front. That is historical background of my build. The build thread is here: When I've learnt as a 10 years old boy about 1970 from Airfix catalogue on existance of Clipper I was unhappy that the model is only in 1/144. Some years passed I started to think on Clipper seriously when Anigrand resin kit appeared few years ago but a year ago a possibility of buying vacu kit of US company Combat Models from a colleugue from BM appeared. It was not so expensive as resin one so I was very happy that I've bought it and started gathering materials (photos, dravings) in aim to help in build. This is mine third construction finished this year, two previous were Consolidated Coronado and Martin Mariner, both from Mach 2. So it is a trio of big US flying boats, but Clipper is much bigger then those two others, the wingspan is bigger from that of Blohm Voss BV 222! Here she is: Details Scratch build trolley And finally - among other models on shelves Comments welcome Regards Jerzy-Wojtek
  2. Hi, Norwegian recce and light bomber hydroplane, Høver MF 11. After German attack on 9th April 1940 Norwegian airplanes, which survived, were all camouflaged. There are some photos showing those schemes like here: On left there is also He-115. The machine which stands behind it, with partially overpainted number (only "8" left) was subject of my model. I know two kits of MF 11, I did it from vacu kit by Broplan (second is resin one by Choroszy Modelbau) Here she is: This was my third build within float planes and flying boats GB. Remaining two were Blackburn Riopon in Finish colours (Broplan vacu) and Douglas DT 2 C in Norwegian livery (both were on RFI some weeks ago). Here are all three: Comments welcome Regards Jerzy-Wojtek
  3. Hi, This is Blackburn Ripon II F of 4/LeLv 6, September 1942, Finland.

  4. A few years ago I could "catch" a 1/72nd scale vacuform kit of the Stinson A. http://www.airliners.net/photo/American-Airlines-Stinson-LLC/Stinson-A-Tri-Motor/1263327 I would like to build this ugly/beautiful model, but I think there are no decals available. (American Airlines prefered) Has somebody an idea how to get decals for this wonderful airplane?
  5. RAM Models is to release on February 29th, 2016, 1/72nd Vickers VC-10 C.1/C.1K vacuform kits. Source: http://www.rammodels.co.uk/index.php/cPath/65 V.P.
  6. Hi Perhaps somone know it... - Is there any aftermarket canopy for P61 Black Widow in 1/72 scale? I was googling and found only in 1/48... No hope at all? Regards Jerzy-Wojtek
  7. Hi, A second post with vacu model. This is Polish tourer/sport airplane RWD-13 (1/72 vacu by Broplan company). More about this machine can be read for example here: http://www.aviastar.org/air/poland/rwd-13.php It was developed from experience gathered with earlier tourers by RWD: RWD-2, RWD-5, RWD-6 and first of all the RWD-9. Two latest types (RWD-6 and then RWD-9) won twice fameous Challanges - a light airplanes competitions organized in Europe in begining of thirties. It is more or less OOB, if vacu can be OOB. Some details are of course added. She is wearing markings of Romanian ambulance of East front. The pecularity is, that those machines were piloted by women pilots. More on this exceptional squadron ("Escadrila Alba" - the "White Squadron") can be read for example here: http://forum.warthunder.com/index.php?/topic/171506-escadrila-alb%C4%83-romanian-women-in-skies-during-wwii/ I made this model some years ago. Now there are kits of it in 1/72 (resin and polystyrene) as well as 1/48 (resin only) Please have a look at the photos - any comments welcomed Regards Jerzy-Wojtek
