Great build and finish, I built one of those years ago as it is one of my favourite aircraft, like sinnerboy I am waiting patiently for the 1/32 version from Special Hobby.

 

Cheers

That's excellent, beautiful job.  One of my first thoughts when I saw this thread, was, 'Didn't know Classic Airframes did the Whirlwind', then I remembered that I have the kit!

That's fabulous! I've often wondered what would have become of the Whirlwind if they'd put Merlins in it instead of Peregrines. Guess we'll never know...

Very very nice indeed.

Love your paintwork and weathering - its really well done. The underside black is especially well represented.

Really nice model, well done. I wonder if Dowding had let them near the bombers what carnage the may have inflicted, provided they didn't get involved with the German fighters. Anyway they didn't and I think Dowding was right to hold them back in case of invasion where the cannon would have been more useful for ground attack.
