  1. Question about the Hornets in 19 Squadron...from what I have read 19 Squadron received their F.I Hornets in 1946 and used them until they received their Meteor Mk.4 aircraft in 1951. Is this correct? Did they ever use the F.II or or F.III Hornets? I ask because since I am soon to receive the full sheet of the Xtradecal 19 Squadron and will be building a Gauntlet and a Spitfire, I might as well go all the way with the Meteor, Hunter Mk.6 and the Phantom. Call me crazy. --John
  2. Hello, This is my first Group Build and as is my wont I've probably bitten off too much especially given the short timescale. Most of the ingredients for the build are here Definite overkill on the workfront building that lot. Here are the main contenders The transfers for the Spitfire will come from the Iliad set The Italeri Hawk has had its transfers pilfered and the plastic returned to the stash So where does the Buccaneer fit in? Well, I'll be building the aircraft in flight so I need a crew for the Hawk and as neither the Revell nor Italeri boxi
  3. I've just started a build of a F-4 Phantom II to be done in the all blue scheme as worn by XT899 of 19 Squadron in 1991 (?) My questions are about what it carried underneath Firstly, I'm a numpty when it comes to various missiles etc carried by jets. I can recognise an AIM-9 Sidewinder type but an AIM 7 from an AIM-120 AMRAAM, uh, no On to the 19 squadron Phantom. Most photos show it with an auxiliary fuel tank (aka a 'drop' tank) under each wing. I presume these would be mounted on the outer wing hard points, as 1. some photos show it with a pylon (blue
  4. My second finish since my return from Australia, is the recent Airfix Mk Ia Spitfire. If a little tricky to get right but I really enjoyed building it. I used the amazing Fundekals Early Spitfire set to build a machine flown by Flt Sgt George Unwin on 15th September 1940.
  5. Back in July 1968 I was in the Air Training Corps and lucky enough to spend a week ay RAG Guttersloh, Germany. There were 40 or so of us from Surry Wing squadrons. The Group photograph was taken in front of one of 19 Squadrons BAC Lightning F2As, XN789, Squadron Letter J At that time the aircraft was in overall natural metal, very clean and tidy had cannon but didn't appear to have an IFR probe. I have the 1/48th Airfix Kit and plan to make a model of 789, but because I hate natural metal finishing I would like to know if this A/C carried the dark green upper surface sche
  6. Hey there guys. I just picked up the new 1/48 scale Spit Mk 1 kit (#61119) today and it has some very nice features for interwar years Spit birds. If you plan to do a 1938-39 model Spitfire, here are some features which I think will be a nice surprise for you.: Pre-war ring and bead gun sight- Using a combination of some styrene and included photoetch, this is the first 1/48 Spitfire I have seen which includes the ring and bead sight. When I did my Interwar 19 Squadron bird years ago, I had to cobble something together. Two pronged fork pitot tube- Again, it wasn't arou
  7. I was fortunate in receiving some help from Edgar when I built my Spitfire for last year's Battle of Britain GB. As a tribute to his generosity, I would like to dedicate my build of a No. 19 Squadron Spitfire from August 1938 to him. Early Spitfires from No. 19 Squadron are well documented and the model will be a great companion to my No. 111 Squadron Hurricane when I get finally back onto it. Even though in a stock standard colour scheme, the upper wing yellow roundels do give it a unique look. I haven't made up my mind to do K9797 with a red 19 Or K9794 with a yellow 19 Or K97
  8. Ok so my father in law passed away a few days ago and and he was a top bloke. I therefore thought I might either or both build a Lightning and Phantom from No 19 Sqd which was his squadron for many years in the 1960 and 70's. So I need some help/advice on which aircraft and schemes would be appropriate and at 1:72 or 1:48 scale. Many thanks Chris
  9. Hi mates, here is my latest project, the Spitfire Mk. I as seen in summer of 1938. This started out as an out-of-the-box build, but of course that didn't last long.

I/IIa (kit number A02010) Scale: 1:72 (The One True Scale) Decals: From the kit, representing 19(F) Squadron at Duxford in August of 1938 Photoetch: Eduard Interior Set No. SS400 Vacuform: Falcon Spitfire Canopy Set Paint: Gunze H72 Dark Earth, H73 Dark Green, H309 FS34079, H47 Red Brown, H90 Clear Red, H91 Clear Yellow, H93 Clear Blue, H94 Clear Green;
