1/32 Westland Whirlwind by Specialhobby

Recommended Posts

Always had a soft spot for the Whirlwind. Sadly the tool makers will not have to make provision for loads of different marks.  How many decal sheets needed to do every operational one built!  There were what, 2 squadrons? 

 

 Petter came up with some interesting and indeed unique or almost unique features. 
Very much looking forward to this one

Yes, 2 squadrons, 2 operational colour schemes, plus the P9 prototype and the 'final' Westlands hack, add a couple of Trials aircraft for different armaments fit with yellow undersides.

For the really brave there's the very heavily weathered example with some good reference photos available.

 

The wait continues...

We are working on another mould for the 1/32 Whirlwind kit. Photos were taken on Friday. The first two shots show the mould before splitting. The next two images show the mould after editing. Therefore, the contact surfaces are all blue. Soon, at the latest at the Nuremberg Fair, we will show more plastic sprues for the Whirlwind kit.
