Bristol Blenheim Main Wheel Hubs

Recommended Posts

I have a question regarding the colour of Blenheim wheel hubs. I ask because most of the painting references I have (Airfix, various aftermarket decal sheets) are 'silent' in this matter.

The Airfix kit provides guidance for a single flat black/coal black shade. For many of the original Mk.I aircraft with the black underside this makes sense to me. As we know, Blenheims of other persuasions and colour schemes (Sky Blue, etc. under surfaces) exist and are covered pretty well by the range of decal sheets that have been released in recent times.

I am wondering if the wheel hubs where ever matched to the under surface colour of the factory/service-prepared aircraft. Or were they predominantly black, including spare wheels ?

Any assistance would be gratefully accepted.

Thanks for the links and some fabulous images !

I guess aluminium makes sense; possibly castings ?
