    Just discovered this site. Looks interesting.
    Been drawing and painting aircraft of any era since I was about 4 yrs old back in 1948 - still not much good at it but keeping trying!
    Currently working on a painting of a Blenheim Mk V for a friend - and may do another for myself based on the Mediterranean anti - shipping strikes. But I could use confirmation of some detail.

    I've created my own 3D viewing model and I can see one piece of box art that shows the right hand side of the Mk V nose - but has anyone got some decent photos of that part of a Bisley or Blenheim V?
    i.e. where the gun pack merges up into the nose?
    I served 5 years in the RAF back in the mid /late 60's , as an Inst Mech- mainly on Javelins and Lightnings .
    Mods - shoot me if I've got it wrong.

    Welcome Neilf - we normally don't shoot folks here, only those who claim they are someone or something that they really aren't. Aside from that we're all pretty cool and there's a lot of knowledge here. Look around and enjoy.

    PS Love the Lightning!

    Got what wrong? Welcome to the forum. You might wish to take a look at the Aircraft Pictures section. I'm sure you might find some useful information there.

    Enjoy.

    Take a gander at the membership rules, Neil. They are a bit different than those over at eHanger. :toothy5:

    Not sure what you refer to there Matt 8) - I make my own way in the world and I'm a member of quite a few aviation / art sites .
    I've looked at the membership rules for here but see nothing that stops me joining .
    I'm surprised I haven't come across this site before - it does as I said in my intro - look interesting - at least to someone like me who's been mad about aircraft for 60 odd years.

    As for what do I mean "New - again " - it was simply a reference to the number of sites I've joined " Here I go again " sort of thing.
    Anyone got a problem with that?

    As for "Got what wrong?" - I realised that there is probably a "reference" section where I should make my query about the Blenheim V stbd. nose but included it in my intro. anyway.

    If I've missed something in the rules and conditions that means I'm not eligible by all means pull the plug - if not I'll be happy to contribute as I get into the threads on here if I feel I have anything to offer .

    No worries, Neil. We have had some issues in the past with a few members. Have a look around and get the feel for the place.

    Im extremely curious, as I went off on some of the members there including that kid Nick who posted some stuff over here that he claimed was his own work....

    I understand your curiosity but there is nothing sinister in my turning up at this moment.
    Oh yes - I've seen your spat on EH mate !
    But it's nothing to do with me .
    It's thanks to that I found this site (it's an ill wind as they say ).
    I've certainly given advice / critique to young Nick in the past on EH and very recently as well but that's as far as any link goes . I am not one of the great and good in the aviation art world so I doubt if my tuppence worth means a great deal to anyone - but I try to help where I can .
    As I've said above I am a member of various aviation /art sites - that doesn't make me responsible for every Tom ,Dick or Harry that crops up on them or elswhere .
    p.s. Look at the link to my blog in my Profile .

    Hi Neil and welcome. I don't think I've got much more on the Blenheim V than you've already found, but I'll have a look through my stuff, and if I find anything I think might be of use, I'll post it.

    Can you post some or your artwork, Neil. Would love to see it. I suspect others would also.
