Whirlwind HAR 9 and HAR 10 differences?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Just a quick question on the major external differences between the RN Westland Whirlwind HAR9 and the RAF HAR 10. Did the RN HAR 9 have the  under fuselage recess for a torpedo like the earlier HAS 7? I know the RAF HAR 10 did not have this feature. I'm planning to convert the Italeri H-19 into a HAR 9 as used in the Antarctic on HMS Protector.

Any help with this question greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers,

 

Joe

a2zee are selling off their last few Mk9 conversion kits so get one now decals for Endurance in it. Yes they were all conversion of Mk7 so same torpedo bay gnome engine nose fitted on . Whirlybirdmodels do wheel floats for that version regards Len

As said above the HAR.9 retains the torpedo bay.

Another difference is in the nose detail particularly around the intake area, the HAR.9 has a solid looking nose and the HAR.10 has a mesh directly in front of the engine.

If you have the H-19B with the drooped tail boom and are not using a conversion kit,remember that the strakes on the boom are different.

I think Heloman on here had a thread some time back so may be worth a search
