  1. My latest model finished the end of last week of a Lockheed Hudson I of P5143, 'VX-M' of 206 Sqn, Bircham Newton, May 1940. The Hudson was derived from the Lockheed Model 14 airliner to meet a RAF requirement for a General Reconnaissance (GR) aircraft or as a trainer. Buying a US aircraft for potentially operational duties caused a lot of comment at the time, as some believed the RAF should use only British aircraft. It was then decided,with the threat of war looming, to use the Hudson in its GR role as it offered better performance than the Avro Anson currently used. The Blackburn Botha w
  2. Good afternoon all, I’m working my way through a Classic Airframes Hudson and need some help with the turret. I’ve already given up with the one that comes with the kit and have pinched one from my Revell Ventura which is far better in profile. However, one thing they both have in common is the total lack of interior detail. Does anybody have any interior photos or diagrams they would be prepared to share? I’m aware there is a restored one at the Yorkshire Air Museum but a trip up there isn’t convenient at the moment. Best regards Howard
  3. I am painting a 1/72 Lockheed Hudson in the post late 1941 Coastal Command white undersides with extra dark sea grey topsides. I just wanted to check before I slap paint on. The wing and tail leading edges were painted a dark colour, was this black or was it another dark colour such as blue or green. https://images.app.goo.gl/PRRe59AqAyFS7S6S6
  4. I have a bit of an enthusiasm at the moment for these twin - tailed, twin - engined planes from the Lockheed Co. They played a major role in taking the makers from the brink of collapse and closure right up to the top of the global plane - making industry. The more I find out about them, the more I like them. I've got a collection of kits to work on, and I don't think it's all going to be in one nonstop frenzy of plastic bashing. But there could be a fair bit of Lockheed ahead for me and my tube of glue. Here's what I've got, so far...
  5. I’ve been following BritModeller for a while, but having seen a couple of Hudson WIP builds, I felt I had to contribute something of my own. This is my version of the Revell 1/72 Lockheed Hudson, which started life as a limited run by MPM, then was picked up by Italieri, before finding its final resting place in Revell’s back catalogue. I was lucky enough to find one in my local model shop in Saint Paul, MN. I chose to make P5120 of No. 206 Squadron, a Mk. I variant from 1940, based at Bircham Newton. The Hudson played an important role in coastal defenses
  6. Have you ever seen the photo of anti-sub (TSS over White) camouflaged Hudson sporting small-dia "blue" SEAC roundels? There's a very basic profile of such a plane in RAFweb ad perhaps they are right, but I need a proof to follow on with my model. Correct me please where I'm wrong: 1. The small SEAC roundel (in dark and blue or "India white") was introduced in early 1943. 2. Two RAF Squadrons (namely No. 217 and 353) were using Hudsons in maritime role over the India/Burma area at least until June 1943 (October 1944 for transport duties) 3. In October 1942 the AMO A.
  7. One of the few (and perhaps best known) Hudson units operating over the MTO was Australian-manned No.459 Squadron. These Hudsons (Cyclone-engined Mk.III and Mk.IIIA as well as TwinWasp-engined Mk.V and Mk.VI) had RAF serials, of which some 80-90 are known. Last pictures of these a/c, taken in early 1944, show most of them in high-demarcation anti-submarine RAF Coastal Command scheme of Extra Dark Sea Grey and Dark Slate Grey (Temperate Sea scheme) over White. But in the web there are also photos from earlier period, showing the a/c in low-demarcation scheme. I would like to know your opinion,
  8. I have the Italeri 1/72 Hudson Mk. IV/V (kit 1253). Can it be made into a Hudson Mk.I without TOO much hassle, or should I look for the Revell AG 1/72 Hudson Mk.I kit? I want to do the recce Hudson Mk.I shown in the Warpaint book, on page 3 (N7357). Of course, I still have to figure out which paint I can find here to match the Light Slate Grey finish mentioned.

  10. Hi guys, welcome to my GB build... the Airfix Lockheed Hudson that cost £6.00. It was originally used to look at for my Vacform kit, but I have no need for it now so it can get built now.. I'm almost certain this will be my only build for the GB, but I may try and squeeze in the Airfix (new tool) Typhoon too. to be finished OOB in 206Sqn Coastal Command colours Box shot by Totallyrad.co.uk, on Flickr Box + sprues by Totallyrad.co.uk, on Flickr
  11. Hudson Mk. I/II Patrol Bomber 1:72 Revell With war looming in Europe, the British Purchasing Commission began a search for suitable aircraft and armaments to meet the growing requirements of the RAF. One such search was for a maritime patrol aircraft to augment and eventually replace the Avro Anson. The Lockheed Corporation proposed a militarised version of the Super Electra airliner. Compared to its civilian counterpart, the Hudson had more powerful engines, a pair of Browning machine guns in the nose and four more in a Boulton Paul turret located in the dorsal position. In service,
  12. Pics and notes thanks to Trevor. These photos are of Lockheed Hudson mk.IIIA A16-199/G-BEOX. Formerly at the Strathallan collection in Scotland, it is the only example of the type in Europe and is currently on display in the RAF Museum in Hendon. As a reference source it is a classic example of the real thing not being accurate enough. Last operated by Ad Astra Airways in Australia, in essence it is a post-war, modified and civilianised machine dressed up in military markings and has several non-standard features. From the nose they are: - Gloss paint scheme - None standard nose glazin
