  1. For those who may remember my previous attempt to create a Wellington Mk.XVIII (T.18) of 62 OTU at RAF Ouston, 1945, this new build is intended to produce its predecessor the Avro Anson Mk.1 (A.I.), also with 62 OTU at Ouston in Northumberland. The starting point for this new conversion is this excellent booklet; Anson (2) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr The top of the cover shows my chosen subject, complete with radar aerials. Inside the booklet is the following photo of one of these A.I. Ansons; Anson (3) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr And that is it! Unlike the Wellingto
  2. Just finished the Airfix Bristol Blenheim Mk.IV, but not without difficulty. This was due to trying a new (to me) make of acrylic matt varnish, which reacted badly to what was underneath it. I did some test paints on spare plastic beforehand, but the problem didn't show up till the real thing. Z5880, 289 Sqdn det, Ouston, c 1943 (1) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr Z5880, 289 Sqdn det, Ouston, c 1943 (2) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr Z5880, 289 Sqdn det, Ouston, c 1943 (6) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr Z5880, 289 Sqdn det, Ouston, c 1943 (9) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr Z5880, 2
  3. This is an early Blenheim Mk.1, L1525, of 3 Radio Servicing Section 72 Wing at RAF Ouston, Northumberland in October 1940. The airfield was not officially opened until March 1941, but 3 RSS moved in far earlier and flew off the grass areas from 13th October 1940. L1525 didn't last long, and crashed on take-off from RAF Horsham St.Faith (now Norwich Airport) on 24th October 1940, the three crew were injured but safe. L1525, 3 RSS 72 Wing, Ouston, October 1940 (20) by Philip Pain, on Flickr L1525, 3 RSS 72 Wing, Ouston, October 1940 (34) by Philip Pain, on Flickr L1525, 3 R
  4. Following on from last month's Revell 1/72 Vampire FB.5, I carried on and have just finished a second one. Mainly because I don't like Vampires, or models of them, so the sooner it was out of the way the better! For this model I used one of the decal options from the Modeldecal Vampire sheet. VZ305, RLS, 607 & 608 Sqdns, Ouston, 1954-5 (11) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr VZ305, RLS, 607 & 608 Sqdns, Ouston, 1954-5 (14) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr VZ305, RLS, 607 & 608 Sqdns, Ouston, 1954-5 (15) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr VZ305, RLS, 607 & 608 S
  5. Finished yesterday, this is the Revell kit boxed as a Vampire F.3 but containing the necessary parts for a FB.5 or FB.9. The kits sprues show that it originated as an MPM kit. Goes together nicely although I had to remove some of the interior to create room for a large lump of lead. There are Modeldecal and Xtradecal sets of Vampire decals available, so a wide range of different RAF Vampires can be modelled. VV617, A, 607 Sqdn, Ouston, c 1955 (14) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr VV617, A, 607 Sqdn, Ouston, c 1955 (12) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr VV617, A, 607 Sqdn, Ouston, c 1955 (8
  6. Finished a couple of days ago, this is the latest addition to RAF Ouston's Harvards, a Revell 1/72 T-6G Texan kit, converted to an RAF Harvard. The work involves making a longer rear end to the canopy, using an Airfix Canadian Chipmunk canopy, plus using the old Airfix Harvard kit long exhaust, removing the various hard points for the Texan's weapons, and various small detail changes.

  7. Following on from the WIP thread for this kit, here are photos of the completed model VP974, 11 Gp CF, Ouston, 1961 (3) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr VP974, 11 Gp CF, Ouston, 1961 (5) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr VP974, 11 Gp CF, Ouston, 1961 (10) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr VP974, 11 Gp CF, Ouston, 1961 (17) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr VP974, 11 Gp CF, Ouston, 1961 (19) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr It is finished as a DH.104 Devon C.1 , VP974, of 11 Group Communications Flight at RAF Ouston, Northumberland in 1961.

  8. This model is the next addition to my RAF Ouston project, and this is not intended to be a full work-in-progress thread. Rather I'm hoping that some kind viewer can help me out with the markings. Please! Here is the progress so far; Devon C1 (1) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr I also bought the "Transport Wings" resin Dove & Devon Seats TWC72041 set, as Amodel does not include an interior for the cabin. This photo shows the completed interior, although the colour scheme and internal arrangement for an early RAF Devon C.1 is something of a mystery! Two words of warning; the seats
  9. Just finished, the latest addition to my RAF Ouston project, Gloster Gladiator Mk.1 K6132 of 13 Group Communications Flight, RAF Ouston, Northumberland, April 1941. K6132, 13 Group Comms Flight, Ouston, April 1941 (4) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr K6132, 13 Group Comms Flight, Ouston, April 1941 (7) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr K6132, 13 Group Comms Flight, Ouston, April 1941 (9) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr K6132, 13 Group Comms Flight, Ouston, April 1941 (12) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr K6132, 13 Group Comms Flight, Ouston, April 1941 (13) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr
  10. Here's an old kit, I must have had this unmade model since 1980, or earlier. P9099, 13 Group AACU, Ouston, June 1941 (6) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr P9099, 13 Group AACU, Ouston, June 1941 (10) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr P9099, 13 Group AACU, Ouston, June 1941 (12) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr P9099, 13 Group AACU, Ouston, June 1941 (14) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr P9099, 13 Group AACU, Ouston, June 1941 (15) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr P9099, 13 Group AACU, Ouston, June 1941 (26) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr P9099, 13 Group AACU, Ouston, June 1941 (28) w by P
  11. This is an update to my original thread on this model. I have now finished writing up a history of the Czech Defector, and to do so I searched various Czech websites, using 'google translate' to try and confuse me further! There is plenty of information, but it appears that no one has ever tried plotting his flight path on 'google earth' and measuring the distances. RAF Ouston to the village of Ortho, Belgium = 450 miles. Still air range of a Hurricane 1 with Rotol propellor = 425 miles, and that is without him starting off with a training exercise with a Polish pilot. Result, it just didn't a
  12. Just after Christmas I was delighted to find this kit on Ebay. It was released in 2017, but somehow escaped my attention. Proctor (1) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr Proctor (2) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr It comes with no less than five military options, and includes optional parts for all the early Proctors, plus the Vega Gull. However the only canopy included is for the Proctor 3. It has etched brass parts, canopy mask (for painting), no less than three tail wheels, two propellors and spinners, and a pile of optional seat parts, none of which are explained in the instructions. The overal
  13. Finished today, an Airfix 1/72 Spitfire Mk.1/II kit, completed as one of the rare Mk.Va versions. The Airfix kit has all the necessary parts to make a Va, and indeed they have re-issued the model as such. P9448, 81 Sqdn, Ouston, 7 February 1942 (4) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr P9448, 81 Sqdn, Ouston, 7 February 1942 (6) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr P9448, 81 Sqdn, Ouston, 7 February 1942 (8) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr P9448, 81 Sqdn, Ouston, 7 February 1942 (18) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr P9448, 81 Sqdn, Ouston, 7 February 1942 (19) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr Thi
  14. After a run of difficult models, I fancied doing something simple for a change, at least that was the plan! So here is Airfix's 1974 model of the Spitfire Vb, which has been released and re-boxed several times. It is a reasonably accurate kit, although much simpler than today's CAD generated models. EN821, 243 Sqdn, Ouston, July 1942 (2) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr EN821, 243 Sqdn, Ouston, July 1942 (5) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr EN821, 243 Sqdn, Ouston, July 1942 (12) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr EN821, 243 Sqdn, Ouston, July 1942 (14) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr EN82
  15. Just finished, my take on the very nice Brengun Typhoon (early car-door); DN439, 198 Sqdn, RAF Ouston, Jan 1943 (52) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr DN439, 198 Sqdn, RAF Ouston, Jan 1943 (51) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr DN439, 198 Sqdn, RAF Ouston, Jan 1943 (48) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr DN439, 198 Sqdn, RAF Ouston, Jan 1943 (27) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr DN439, 198 Sqdn, RAF Ouston, Jan 1943 (19) w by Philip Pain, on Flickr This is a Hawker Typhoon 1b, DN439 of 198 Squadron at RAF Ouston, Northumberland in January 1943. The squadron was still working up during their br
  16. Just finished today, although I'm not at all happy with it. This is the re-boxed MPM kit and while the surface detail is excellent, the fit of many parts was abysmal and the wings/tail are far too thick. I'm really kicking myself for not doing a massive sanding down before joining the halves. Also had to pinch correct sized wheels from the 1/72 Revell Havoc kit. It also took nine separate lumps of lead squeezed into various places to stop it tail sitting. The Special Hobby kit is for a Boston IIIA, but contains all the necessary parts to do the earlier mark III, but without the relevant instru
  17. Following on from the WIP thread, it's finished, but not without some difficulty. The exact colour is something of a mystery, there is a colour photo of it on the internet, but it doesn't help much, looking like a faded shade of PRU blue. So I just went with my notebook description from 1966 i.e. "medium blue". I found a tin of "Revell" number 50 which seems to do the trick. Also my later 1968 photo shows a light faded colour. These are the two photos, both taken by me at RAF Ouston; G-AIHD (DX241), WD332 no engine, RAF Ouston, 4 Jan 66 by Philip Pain, on Flickr G-AIHD (DX241), WN948, RAF Ous
  18. Following on from completion of my Anson airbourne interception trainer, here are photos of the assembled 62 OTU fleet, at RAF Ouston, Northumberland in March 1945. The Anson Mk.1 (A.I.), DJ528 '45', is about to be retired, to be replaced by the Wellington Mk.XVIII (T.18), ND113 '27', with Hurricane IIc, LF363 'F' to act as a target. 62 Operational Training Unit, RAF Ouston, March 1945 by Philip Pain, on Flickr 62 Operational Training Unit, RAF Ouston, March 1945 by Philip Pain, on Flickr 62 OTU had over 50 Ansons, replaced by 29 Wellingtons, and they trained all of Figh

  21. This one has been over three weeks in the making so far, and still far from finished. I decided to adopt a very unusual method of construction, but wasn't sure if it would work or not. So didn't post work-in-progress photos for fear of having to abandon it half way thorough, with much egg on face. I have an original Matchbox 1/72 kit of the Supermarine Walrus, but decided to use the later Revell re-issue of the kit, as it has better plastic, much less shrinkage on the parts, and comes with some of the stencil markings applied to the real Walrus. My chosen subject is an RAF Walrus
