    Hi all,
    Been hard at work making these models for a gent' who wanted a wellington built as it was in his dads sqd codes, so i gladly said yes, It's from 91 sqd Wellesbourne Mountford OTR, the wellington is the trumpeter 1/48th jobbie, the props are removable so you can take all the engine covers off to show the engine 'off' and made some scratch built spinners :!:

    He also asked me if i could make dio's to match, so he asked me if i could make a matchbox wellesley showing engine change out in the fields on a part of a 'specticle'

    There was quite a few added extra's on these like CMK resin goodies eg' the ground crew/ engine/prop/PE engine gaurds/scratch built table.

    The other dio' is the old frog whitley bomber with aftermarket decals on a 'lollie pop', the frames are just picture frames and the hard standing is 1.5mm card cut into the correct shapes then painted a concrete colour, then stuck down with PVA glue and some 'fake' grass i also used the airfix recovery set in both dio's.

    If you get a red 'X' in a box, wipe the cursor across it; it should expand and read 'Undefined'. Leave the cursor on the box, and then press 'Shift' and 'R'. That should open it, but sometimes, depending on image size, it might take a few seconds. I have to do that most of the time, and presume it's because of the 'system' somewhere!

    These are very good. In particular I admire the turrets, they must be a nightmare with a lot of detail in a very small space.
    Well done

    Lovely builds! I'd say that Wellington is HUGE! :thumbright:

    I bet you get through a lot of black paint! :)
