Im looking for photo(s) of Fairey Firefly T.1 or T.2 in Canadian Navy markings. In an ancient Scale Aircraft Modeller (vol.2, #3) there is published one photo of TG*X, with a 'D' type roundel. It is illustrated in the article as MB 443, with underwing codes VG-TGX, and 'C1' roundels. In a very early IPMS Canada magazine, a drawing of MB 445 is to be found, no codes, but carrying early Canadian roundels with a maple leaf centre. I suspect that Leo Pettipas' book on Canadian Fireflies may have something, but my copy has disappeared. Similarly, there may have been something in a more recent Random Thoughts, but nothing to be found in my collection. Any Firefly experts out there with what I seek? Much obliged if you could contact me on-line. Styreno
Greetings all this will be my number 2 build for this GB. It was going to be a number 1 but got trumped by my Seaking. So here we have the A-Model Piasecki Hup 2/3. I will be opting for a Hup 3 version of the Canadian Navy. I researched the kit and it seems a bit tricky in places but builds into a nice little kit (hopefully). The only pick up was the front canopy which is a bit flat, there is a vac form available but to ship it to Canada will cost around a Tenner, so I will make do! The kit has a nice bit of detail about it, even if it is a bit rough around the edges. So here are the sprue shots Some half decent engine and internal mouldings and more of the engine/transmission detail. So another all poised for the go, bring on tomorrow Bob
