    the tamiya one is a mkIX, if only the would produce a mkV, Rolling Eyes that would be a malta story


    As I already stated before, great masterpiece Alex, and good luck for telford.

    Hi Rock Guys.

    Look. I will make an effort on Armstrong Whitley. Whitley was the First Heavy Bomber of British B.C. A very important and unique part of their Aviation History. Never been modelled (seriously) before, never been shown to their exhibition. I think that will "touch" their interest.

    If i will not find documentation suitable to support my build...I will choose something else.

    HAMPDEN
    WELLINGTON (very common theme full of after-market goodies)
    or...a Martin Maryland (Maltese!!!)

    Otherwise I will search for a Civil Vintage aircraft...(SuperMarine SCAPA!!! Maltese!!)That's a fantastic subject!

    PS...Hey Marco? Sunderland...Stirling? I will need a space-ship to carry them there!!!

    You meant "Never had the Alex treatment"!

    What ever plane you pick, I will grab some popcorn and enjoy the build!

    Hi Marco,

    Look. My first choice is the Whitley. The problem is the poor stuff for this. No serious data files around. I've got two books (war paint series 21, and Profile publications,) but ...empty egg!!!

    I need stuff for Bombardier's area, fuselage, bomb bays (fuselage and wings located) wheel wells, landing gear etc.

    All I've got are some pics about control panel, pilot's and navigator's seats, canopy, navigator table, turrets, fuselage frames and a Cutaway in High resolution.

    Very difficult..I don't know where shall i ask for a manual or some detailed pictures or drawings....

    IF...I don't find the stuff I need for (don't forget that this project will be totally scratch built based on Sanger's vacform Kit. I don't want to make something..."what if"...), I will step froward to Maryland (Special Hobby's Kit)...

    I withdraw Wellington because it a very common theme and has nothing to offer in a contest.

    My instinct says Whitley. (do you know that this bomber had NO FLAPS at all? )
