1/72 Whitley - BOAC markings

Recommended Posts

Fly 1/72 Whitley built as a BOAC Mk.V. Apart from the apparent modifications in the nose and tail (turrets removed and glazing blanked), the engine fronts have been reshaped, landing lights have been installed in the port wing leading edge and the cockpit glazing has been replaced by Falcon vacuformed transparency. Decals are (of course ;) ) from Vingtor.

Quite well, actually. I was afraid it would be too wide, but it wasn't. It has to be carefully trimmed though.

Really nice that! I like these WW2 BOAC builds - I was really tempted to do a Mossie in the recent Mosquito GB but decided not to in the end. I'm definitely going to do one in the future (although perhaps not the Whitley!)

Decals for BOAC CW-20 (= C-46 prototype) and Dakota Mk.I will soon be available - hopefully in a week or two.

Lovely build! I'd like to build one of these as my grandfather learned parachuting in the airborne artillery at Ringway and they used these at the time. I believe they used to jump out of a hole in the bottom and risked breaking their noses every time!

Very nice, unusual to see civilian bomber conversions.

Cheers

That's gorgeous Nils. I too like the civvy bomber variants and feel all the more inspired after seeing this :)

You've done a very good job here. Nice to see a BOAC version. I built a Frog Whitley ( Sure it was Frog) in 1973. I'd forgotten about it until I saw this. Yours is much better!

I never knew BOAC had these.
