    What is the colour of RAF Lockheed Hudson III bombbay: interior green, aluminium or something else? And, does anybody have a picture or drawing of Westland Whirlwind F I wheelbay?:|

    From the little I've seen of the Hudson bomb bay, it appears to be Interior Green, possibly Bronze Green. Sorry, can't help with the Whirlwind stuff, it appears to be as rare as rocking horse doo doos!

    Hi
    not quite as rare as as rocking horse doo doos, but then I did start researching in the early 70's.
    ( just realised when typing this that's almost 40 years ago... scary...:!:)
    cheers

    Great stuff Jerry! It must be about 40 years ago when I had some pics and drawings on the Whirlwind, sadly since lost in house moves etc.

    This is great! I have an Airfix Whirlwind, and an airwaves PE interior set, but no information on the wheel bays, so this will help a lot. Thanks

    Hi All,
    Just for those interested in the whirlwind there are three new kits being issued by special hobby in 1:72
    I have bought one and am waiting for it to arrive.:D
    It does not seem to be a re release of either the airfix or pavla molds.
    For those really keen there is a seller in poland with some, and they are on e bay:D
    ..... strangely at a realistic price....:confused:

    cheers

    For that price I would buy it only if is in 1/32 scale. On old kits you have something (or everything) to do, any child can build Hasegawa or something like that.
