Icabod Posted May 21, 2022 Share Posted May 21, 2022 I haven't posted anything on the forum for a considerable number of years but having found some time on my hands I finally dug out form the garage loft my Sanger HP Halifax I/II I started back in 2010 after fighting a couple FM Halifax IVs. The Sanger engines were a mess so I carved a blank, made a mould and cast 4 replacements. However after fitting them I realised they were set at the wrong incidence (DOH!) and disgusted with the whole thing I consigned the bits to the garage loft. Anyway after sawing off the engines and reseating at the correct angles, I felt inspired to plod on. The model will be MHK of 51 Squadron, shot down over Belgium in 1943. This is a photo, taken I believe from the Bf110 that shot it down. Outer port engine is on fire. Photo is from the Belgian archives which has lots of images of crash site. The whole thing is mostly Isopon since fuselage was twisted and bowed like a banana. Here's a few photos showing progress to date. Cockpit area being cut to fit the canopies, the framing will be foil most likely. Wings and tailplane temporarily fitted to show the overall shape and encourage me to continue. The final image is to show the difference between the old FM Halifax fuselage and Sanger Halifax Fuselage 13 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
