    Fairey Barracuda

    Hello, Some of you may know me (Santiago Hrubisko) or my father (Raul Hrubisko). We build models in series trying to represent the aircraft selected in as many as possible version during WWII (scheme colour camuflage, trials, amo, markings, etc). In this case I have started to look for information about the Fairey Barracauda. Although we have some books an articles there are some issue that I cannot resolve. I wonder if some of you could help us or point me out how to follows. This is the list of aircrafts selected that we have good information (at least one photo). 1Fairey Barracuda Mk I - P1767 (prototype with lower elevator) 2Fairey Barracuda Mk I - P1767 (prototype with upper elevator) 3Fairey Barracuda Mk I - P1767 with fixed main undercarrier 4Fairey Barracuda Mk I - RK328 with deep charges 5Fairey Barracuda Mk I - RK328 with four SCI 6Fairey Barracuda Mk II - P9647 used to test Merlin 32 engine fitted with a container as ballast 7Fairey Barracuda Mk II - LS789 July 1944 fitted with a torpedo and radar. 8Fairey Barracuda Mk II - P9726 M used to test low level recovery 9Fairey Barracuda Mk II - unknow serial number used to test air radar container instalation. 10Fairey Barracuda Mk II PM939 374/A 812 Sdn HMS Vengeance August 1945 11Fairey Barracuda Mk II P9597/G A&AEE June 1944 with CUBA canister 12Fairey Barracuda Mk II PM954 R1C 814 Sdn Ceylon Ashore RNS Katukurunda 1945 13Fairey Barracuda Mk II MX613 A&AEE January 1945 with a boat 14Fairey Barracuda Mk TR III DP855/G Defford Feb 1944 For ASV MK II band evaluation with rear fuselage mounted scanner and radome 15Fairey Barracuda Mk V P9976 May 1944 (third prototype) 16Fairey Barracuda Mk V PM940 Oct 1945 Fith prototype And these are the ones we would like to add but we do not have enough information 17Fairey Barracuda Mk II known serial number - D Day invasion strippes. (We only have one photo but don´t know the serial number) 18Fairey Barracuda Mk II BC760 P 1700 RNAS Katukurunda Ceylon Nov 1945 small SEAC roundels. (We only have a profile but any photo) 19Fairey Barracuda Mk fitted with RATOG. We only have one photo but it is not possible to iddentify the serial number 20Fairey Barracuda Mk with SEAC roundels (Big blue ones with small clear in the center). We only have one photo but it is not possible to iddentify the serial number 21Fairey Barracuda Mk with shark mouth. We only have one photo but it is not possible to iddentify the serial number 22Fairey Barracuda Mk with up level scheme colour camouflage pattern Regarding the latest one, there is ony a profile in the Warpaint book about it but I was not able to find any photo. Does any of you have more information on the above mentioned scheme? Also, any comments or suggestion about adding more Barracudas to the list will be much appreciated. Many thanks in advance. Kind regards Santiago
  3. Hello all. Back in October I started on this build with little notion of the somewhat epic undertaking it would turn into. The new 1/72 tool of this aircraft from Special Hobby was itself a pleasure to work with (barring one or two necessary modifications), however, the more time I spent with this quixotic product of the Fairey shop, the more engrossing it became in all its FAA-baroque glory. The full tawdry detail of the various hackings and scratchings can be found here: ...along with the collected correspondence of a band of knowledgeable and supportive pals who kept me going on this through good days and bad. I thank you all. Two main challenges I set myself on this were to do an engine-reveal and to build a working main wing-fold mechanism at this scale. The two fundamental references I came to rely on were the IWM archive of Barracuda photographs (including many excellent close-ups), and Robert McCandless' superb volume: From the Cockpit No. 16: Barracuda, which Ex-FAAWAFU was kind enough to put me on to. The aircraft herself is built as one of the 829 NAS aircraft that took part in the Tungesten raid on Tirpitz in April of 1944. Some explanation of the figure in the cockpit for those who didn't follow developments in the WIP leading to this. (She's sculpted from scratch out of Milliput). Some time into the build I discovered images from a photo-shoot (dating from late 1944) published by Picture Post magazine, featuring a glamorously-depicted ATA pilot called Maureen Dunlop, posing with a Barracuda. (A search for her on the Getty Images website will yield a number of images preserved from this shoot). The ATA did not however represent the glamorous 'front' of aerial combat in WWII, and like many other areas of support activity - many of them involving women - have only very recently begun to have their rightful place in the historical narrative sufficiently acknowledged. These women flew military aircraft bravely in wartime conditions, frequently facing the endemic sexism of the services (and indeed the wider society) for their pains whilst doing so. Even the Picture Post cover treats her in a similarly sexist way ('glamour-pants' rather than brave pilot). She's shown in the cockpit here however, and very much in charge. Enough. Pictures in studio lighting: Overhead, wings extended: Overhead, starboard wing folded: Nethers: Starboard laterial, wing folded: Front, port: Midway, port: Front, downward: Tail: Rear, downward: Starboard rear: Starboard, overhead Port, rear: Front, low angle: Port nose, close-up: Port lateral, downward: Starboard lateral, close-up: Some daylight shots: Tony
