    Defender 9V-BDT

    With the Valom 1/48 Islander available, it opens up opportunity to tackle a less known aircraft that was sent to the Far East. Defender c/n 235 was sent to Singapore in 1972 for a sales pitch to the Singapore Air Defence Command (SADC) and was registered 9V-BDT. The SADC chose the Skyvan instead and 9V-BDT was later sold to Airfast in Indonesia. I wonder whether the registration 9V-BDT was also painted below the wings as none of the photos I have seen have visibility of that area. Also hoping that Valom will provide the pylons for a Defender in a future release. https://abpic.co.uk/pictures/view/1036961 Warmest regards, YK
  2. New in the Aviation Art ZM (for Zdeňka Macháčka) facebook page is a Fairey Britten Norman BN-2 Islander illustration. Considering Zdeňka Macháčka is the designer from most of the Valom and Fly kits box art... Wait and see. Some persistent rumours say it'll be a 1/48th kit. Keep my fingers crossed for a 1/48th BN-2 Islander complete family (Islander, Turbo Islander, Defender & Trislander). Just think of the uncredible number of military and civil schemes as well as variants for such a kit!

  3. Well....just taken delivery of this... intending to convert to this... What could be easier ......new floor and interior, two new photographic windows in the rear door and port panel, make a FLIR setup and get some decals.Simples......(what have I let myself in for this time?) Having flown in this aircraft for 3 years waking most of Teesside and the North East I definitely have a huge soft spot for it, so couldn't resist
  4. Prompted by the Nigellicus creature, I decided to throw this WIP out here. I started this as light entertainment diversion after a couple of prolonged and complicated builds, the latest of which is still ongoing. As this is a diversion, I probably won't be updating regularly, and I am going to be doing this as much out of the box as possible (for me that is!). The plan is to complete this build as HKG-7 of the RHKAAF, an aircraft I actually (very briefly) had the controls of while flying over Hong Kong many, many years ago. (Those pilot people never trusted us groundcrew much!) In addition to the garish yellow plastic, I think everyone is very well aware of the strange girder like structures that airfix saw fit to slap up on the outer skin. Yes, I know I said out of the box, but there are limits! The first job was to remove those objectionable girders. We start with this.... and a few minutes sanding provides a much smoother fuselage skin. once the fuselage sides were smoothed out, next job was to fill a large sink in the undercarriage - still undecided as to whether to do something about those linkages. After the sides had been sanded the access doors sat proud of the sides. I had to shave some material off the doors in order to get them to sit better. Once happy with the fit, they were glued into position. The interior was then given a quick blast of white primer. Next step was to glue the wings together. It looks okay from this side but on top there is a large gap on one side. I may have to fill that and rescribe - it is a bit of a canyon. Then I decided to give George a run for his money in this incredibly complex engine build. This really puts George's typhoon engine build to shame doesn't it ? I haven't quite figured out how to handle the paint sequence with this - hence why i have not yet glued on the top of the nacelles. I did do some dry fitting and discovered that there are yet more canyons awaiting me on top of the wings when the nacelles are fitted. It looks like there will be some sanding and filing ahead in this build. and to complete this update, some interior parts were given a blast of grey primer. more to come at some point in the future....
