Handley Page Hastings C Mk1, Mk2. 1/144


Recommended Posts

Hell yes, one of these in RNZAF colours has got my name on it. If ever I thought that bigger stuff makes more sense in 1/144, this could be the clincher. :)

Have you looked at the drawings in the Warpaint publication on the Hastings?

I am not sure about the accuracy of the plans in the Warpaint, but as far as I know they are the only game in town. If you want a copy of the Warpaint, google Guideline productions warpaint and no 62 covers the Hastings, and will have a set of 1/72 scale plans included., as well as colour schemes. Unless anybody knows of a better plan?

Hope that helps,

John

For details of the wing see the following thread on Flypast's Historic forum.

It might be easier to start at the end, on page 5, and work back as far as you need.

Steve: remember that the tailplane is lower on the RNZAF aircraft, as on all aircraft after the Mk.1.

The best source on the HASTINGS is Tim Senior's book "Hastings" from Dalrymple & Verdun, but it doesn't have plans, unless you are prepared to place your trust in the 4-view artwork. It does however include quite detailed dimensions. Perhaps kev67 could describe the shortcomings of the Warpaint plans?

Hello, is there any progress on this one yet? I hope you have been able to sort out the drawings, I know I for one would love to see this aircraft in an affordable kit!

 

Yours hopefully,

There is progress, but first there will be a military Аrgosy.

Looking forward to building a few of these,....... especially one wearing Suez Stripes for the parachute assault onto El Gamil airfield in 1956. It would be great to include a couple of jeeps and parachute containers underneath too;
