New 1/72nd scale Airfix Wellington x 2, compared with an MPM kit! Two finished so far!

Recommended Posts

Nice work with paint and decals on both! :)

If I had choose a favourite, it'd be the MPM because it looks very cool in that scheme.

Great progress with the Wellingtons Tony. The Mediterranean one is looking great and the Coastal Command one is extremely neat and tidy. 

I hope you don't mind me mentioning the fin flash on the starboard side of the Coastal Wimpy, it has blue leading instead of red. 

Tremendous work though. I can't wait to see them all together.

That’s funny Tony, you of all people have probably applied 1000 fin flashes over your modelling time. Just goes to show that anything’s possible in this hobby - and I endorse the ‘one thing at a time’ male trait. You should see me trying to organise a meal of meat and three veggies??

Like me trying to use an eftpos machine why trying to chat at the same time. :(

The Wellingtons are looking beaut Tony, the TSS really suits them, whether CC or Transport. 👍

These are looking really good Tony - I especially like the CC scheme...

I think the Fleet Air Arm even had a few in this scheme, although of a later mark?

Looking forward to the next instalment...

Cheers,

Nick.

Looks like a cracking kit in whatever colour dress she decides to wear Tony! I must say this CC scheme does look quite smart. 

 

Cheers and beautifully modelled (yet again).. Dave

Thanks Dave,..... I like the Wimpey in these colours too,..... the next one might be a torpedo bomber!

Thanks Chris,...... just the MPM one to finish off here then I`ll take a break from Wimpey`s for a while,..... although I have another Airfix kit which I`ll probably build as a torpedo bomber, maybe with radar too?

 

All the best mate,

No Trumpeter Wellington in the pipeline? Would be interesting as a comparison.

Nice work Tony.

 

Love the end result with the MPM kit. It's good to see an RAF bomber aircraft in a different camo scheme.

Cracking work fella.  All lovely trio of Wimpeys.  Great work.  I have the MPM kit to build in the stash.   

Thanks for sharing. 

All the best 

Chris 

PS 

I have just checked my latest WIP and you have built these three lovelies in the less time than I have spent building my Trimotor.  Cor blimey that is quick.
