  1. Hi, Please find attached some pictures of my recently completed Airfix B-17 of RAF 100 Group. To those who are in the process of building the model please be aware of the squadron code error on the Airfix instructions. Tonyot made a gallant effort to get me the information but alas it was too late. Here's is Tony's comment for reference. "Looking nice,...I`ve just discovered this one and reading through it I was really hoping that you hadn`t reached the decal stage as I wanted to warn you about a mistake in the kit instructions which is often made elsewhere,..... but I`m too late!! The sqn codes were 6G and they were grouped together as such on both sides of the fuselage and separate from the individual code `B' ,..... but on the left side they have been mistakenly grouped as B6-G!" In any case here are the pictures and I hope you enjoy them. If you want to see the entire build sequence please go to the STGB B-17 page. Oh and if you get a chance do participate in one of the group builds. This was absolutely fantastic....I'm earmarked for the February C-47 group build ...perfect for the 75th anniversary of D-Day. All the Best! Don

  3. Hello! Now that I have just about finished building the first subject in my personal 100 Group project, I've decided it's time to move on to the second subject, before I get distracted (say by that B-17 STGB that's coming up later this year). For those that might be interested, here's the Wellington thread: This time I'm tackling Revell's 1/72 Halifax III kit, with the intent of building MZ913 "Jane". This is a not uncommon subject for modellers and appears in many publications; I'm sure the scantily clad lady on the front has nothing to do with that. MZ913 was delivered to 462 Squadron in August 1944, apparently, but other sources indicate that it first flew operationally in January 1945. The intervening period may quite possibly have been taken up with converting the airframe to use the Airborne Cigar (ABC) radar jamming equipment that 462 Sqn operated after it transferred in 100 Group. I've had the pleasure of building the Revell Merlin-engined Halifax kit about six years or so ago, but I can't recall many positive or negative features of the build other than the widely excoriated fat nacelles, which obviously aren't going to be an issue on this Hercules powered bird. In any case, I'm no Halifax expert, and from what I've seen, the final result looks like a Halifax. Building OOB isn't really an option as the ABC apparatus means there are three large aerials on the fuselage, which I'll scratchbuild. Profiles and photos of Jane indicate that a host of other ECM equipment was fitted: Piperack, Carpet, Monica, plus some slightly mysterious (to me) hemispherical bumps on the bomb bay doors, which I've seen described as being for rotating antennae. Decals for the markings and art will come from the DK Decals 100 Group sheet, and I've also acquired an Eduard etch set to jazz up the wheel wells and a few other external areas. I've done virtually no scratch building before, so this might be a bit of an adventure for me. I hope it won't take quite as long as the eighteen month Wellington build, but I know myself too well to believe that I'll be able to focus just on this build for any more than a couple of weeks; it's very likely that I'll put Jane aside now and then to dally with something else. The thread title, by the way, is shamelessly taken from a history of 462 Sqn, though sadly I don't possess a copy. I'm sure it reflects the hopes of the many brave men that flew in Jane. Before I go, let me post some photos of the real thing, both courtesy of the Australian War Memorial. Thanks for reading!
