  1. Hi all I am looking into the fates of 264 Squadron Defiants which were shoot down en masse on the 13th May 1940 above Holland. I am hoping someone on here might be able to fill in the blanks with regard to the fuselage letter per aircraft. I am using a Dutch book "Tweede Pinksterdag 1940 -Luchtgevechten boven West-Brabant en de Biesbosch" by Jan Jolie 2000 Lorelax Productions / Muiderberg as a reference. Jan Jolie has noted the aircraft involved as follows · L6969 Skelton/ Hatfield (Blue1) PS-B(?)** · L6960 Chandler/ McLeish (Blue3)PS-M · L6958 Thomas/ Bromley (Blue2 ) PS-? · L6977 Greenhous/ Greenhalgh(Green 1 ) PS-U (?)* · L6965 McLeod/ Cox (Green 2) PS-? · Sole survivor L6974 Kay/ Jones (Green 3) PS-? **In regard to PS-B this a/c (L7005) is featured in the Airfix Dogfight doubles boxing of the 1:72 kit and is noted as being in action in August 1940. Is Jolie wrong or were letters reused in the squadron ? *In regard to PS-U in the Airfix 1:72 boxing of the kit they have an a/c( L7013) pegged with this fuselage code as still flying in July. There is a photo in Jolie's book of a/c L6977 crashed in Holland with the fuselage letter partially obscured by bystanders . It could be U or a J. The a/c number is partially obscured but I can make out L697 ? I Again is Jolie wrong or were letters reused in the squadron ? . The primary source material he quotes give the a/c number and the flight code but not the fuselage codes. Any help would be most welcome Kind regards Brian Kirwan
  2. Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone had any decent reference imagery/schematics to the Boultan Paul's Merlin XX engine? I was thinking if there are any decent plans I'll try model it in Autodesk with the intention of 3D printing it. Could be interesting... Failing that, I was thinking about picking up CMK's 1/72 resin Merlin XX up and kit bashing an engine mount and plumbing together. Would this be correct in a BPD? (In particular a MK 1) What do you's think? The engine in question.... Cheers! I'll record whatever I do and upload it to MURRODELS where you can also see a couple other videos I finished. Theres a bunch more on the way!
