As my little De Havilland project draws to an end, I'm starting a new project. This is one that's been percolating through my brain for a while: a set of 100 Group aircraft. The release of the DK decals set last year helped, and about this time last year I also picked up a Trumpeter Wellington X, but until the other day I hadn't realised that the two could go together. I have two other projects in mind, both based on the bases local to my house in WW2: Bassingbourn for the USAAF and Gransden Lodge for the RAF. As it happens, this Wellington has a nod towards Gransden Lodge as well, as although the decal sheet depicts a 1944 aircraft from 192 Squadron, the squadron was formed (and operated Wimpeys) at Gransden Lodge in early 1943. Now, I don't know much about the Wellington, and I'm not sure what modifications were made to the 100 Group aircraft; my references for 100 Group ops are rather silent on the matter, at least with respect to visible external alterations. Therefore, the intent right now is to build straight OOB. The Trumpeter kit has good detail, I understand, so I see no real need to get any etch or resin parts. The de rigueur sprue shots (many are duplicated, so I've only shown one where that's the case).
