    Hey mate ex-pusser here. Did 12 months at tross, blewing with birdies in Nowra.Wasn't until i joined Tobruk and had to be flight deck party that i actually made friends with a lot of them. My mrs is an ex 817 atv. Currently building ww2 european theatre 72 scale aircraft, but have built a sea-king for her and have just recieved shark 07 decals.
    Hey buddy,

    Would you do me a solid and drop back in on my thread "RAAF Vultee Vengeance Camo Question"? I have some new information there that I would like your learned opinion on.

    Thanks, Jim
    Hi Wildcat,

    I am after any information about the Vultee Vengeance flown by the 12th Sqd duing WWII. mainly after the correct marking for my fathers aircraft A27-217. As I would like to build a model to rmember my father.

    Cheers TonyC.
    I want you to know that your "friend" LesofPrimus is a liar about who his grandfather is. I know this because I really am (one) of his grandsons, and his lies have been brought up to the owner of this website. William "Bill" Case was a humble, honest man with honor and integrity that this poser-wanna-be could never understand. Although he was a flying ace, you would have never known it if you knew the man; it was certainly not what defined him. While I do not want to belittle any of his enthusiasm of vintage military aircraft and modeling, his need to feel important by impersonating (a criminal act) a Case family member is deplorable.

    Hey Mate - Hoping you can assist i am working on getting a profile done up for a Walrus from HMAS Sydney during late 1941 and a Seagull MK V 9 RAAF Sqd also 1941 as flown by F/O RB Barrey 407000 RAAF before joining and after joining HMAS Sydney.
    Were having trouble (both myself and artist) in finding details on Markings or paintwork on these Aircraft - have tried RAAF Museum and they said silver but not much else is known.
    Ditto AWM - I have the 2 Serial Numbers of both aircraft concerned via the 9 RAAF ORB but that's about it.

    The painting and profiles are to be part of a series that will feature HMAS Sydney 1941, HMAS Perth 1942, HMAS Krait 1943 and a copy of the 'Tiger' emblem on Ivan Lyons Back re Rimau. 4 Lancaster's (2 x 57 RAF Sqd 1944 and 2 x 617 RAF Sqd 1944-1945), 1 each Walrus and Seagull 1941.

    Anyway any advice or information etc would be useful

    Thanks alot Dirk. It was a fun, easy build and one of my better efforts. Nothing like what some of the guys here produce though!! Looking forward to seeing your build mate. Cheers.

    I was just reading through one of the threads here on the forum when I came across your Italeri 1:48 P-40N. Spectacular job. I will now have to go get one of these for my self. In 1/72 of course. Thanks for taking the time to share it with us.

    Very cool Phil! Thanks for the pics mate. You did an outstanding job on that diorama, I would love to see it up close one day!
