On This Day…May 24th.

The Battle of the Denmark Strait was a short, intense encounter that was a humanitarian disaster for the Royal Navy. In the early hours of May 24th 1941, the HMS Hood was sunk and with 1,418 souls on board, a staggering and scarcely believable[...]

1/72 Vickers Wellington Mk. Ia

This is the brand new Airfix Mk. Ia/Ic kit. What a treat this one is! Packed into this 1/72 scale Wellington is a complete interior. I built the Mk. Ia version because the extensive fuselage glazing isn’t painted over. I wanted to see how the [...]

Trumpeter 1:48 Scale, Vickers ‘Wellington’ Mk.1c

Finally calling this one done. Great model, lots of fun to build, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I got the kit at a show up in Poughkeepsie, NY, off a table set up by the sponsoring clubs members. Wasn't to familiar with the 'Wellington', but the[...]

Italeri (MPM) 1/72 Vickers Wellington Mk.X – RAF100 GB

Designed to a specification for a heavy bomber first issued in 1932, the first Wellington prototype flew in 1934. It was the second airplane to use the revolutionary geodetic construction system first created by Barnes Wallis for the R-100 airs[...]

Trumpeters Wellington Mk III.

Hi friends! I guess some of you know that this build was my "FRYING PAN CHALLENGE". Yesterday was spent planting grass on the base plate. As you can see, I made some low valleys and hills in the plate, to give it a bit more life. The gra[...]

THE FRYING PAN CHALLENGE! Part 5. Model finished. Challenge met.

Is that correct English by the way? Do you "meet" a challenge? Anyway, here she is. Since the last post, I've worked with thin mists of various colors over the paintwork and with artists colored pencils on the decals, to bleach her and to add[...]

THE FRYING PAN CHALLENGE! Part 4. The fun has begun.

Playing around with the airbrush over large surfaces is the best part of aircraft modeling in my opinion. Before I painted the black underside, I laid a foundation of reddish brown. That was followed by a thin layer of dark grey and then [...]

THE FRYING PAN CHALLENGE! Part 3. Fuselage and wings.

A german high quality virus halted the build for almost a week and ruined three days of skiing vacation, but today I got going again. The clear parts didn't really fit as one would wish, so some putty and sanding was required. Wit[...]

THE FRYING PAN CHALLENGE. Part 2. Cockpit and engines.

With the FRYING PAN hanging above my tender neck, like the sword of Damocles, I've been working away on the Wellington. The interior of the aircraft has been build and finished. Trumpeter has added quite a bit of interior to the kit. Much of [...]
