Revell Halifax Mk.II- Freightdog Update Set- Coastal Command Scheme

Recommended Posts

Hello Folks,

I made this one some time ago to represent a Halifax GR.II (Special) from 58 Sqn at St. Davids, Wales in 1943 but I can now share it with you, hope you like it;

The Freightdog update set was fantastic and although not totally accurate for the rivet counters out there it certainly makes the Revell Halifax actually look like a Halifax and it is really easy to use. I added bracing inside the nose cone for the .5 Browning carried by Halifax`s of 58 & 502 Sqns and it came from an old USAAF bomber kit.

This model appears in the latest issue of Airfix Modelworld magazine,

All the best

Tony O

Superb job as normal. Funnily enough I was thinking of getting one of the Freightdog sets to do a Halifax even though 1/72 isn't my normal scale. This has just helped to make my mind up!

Wow! That's really nice. Great job.

Are the engine exhaust pipes from the kit or Freightdog?

That is rather lovely :wub:

I have the FreightDog parts too and judging by this build it's an excellent compromise on the engine problem. I think my Halibag may have to be dug out now...

I may have to invest in that. I was thinking maybe doing a Coastal Command version, or perhaps Special Duties one. I'm torn.

Love it Tony! Strangely enough Gill and I are having a long weekend in Pembrokeshire soon and a walk round the old airfield at St Davids is one of the items on the agenda if my legs will play ball.

Why not go for both, my next one will probably be a Special Duties or Glider Tug aircraft,

A lovely build Tony, boy does the Halibag suit this scheme :)

The freightdog set really does make a big difference to the kit.

Cheers, Neil
