    Seahawk - finished

    Post  J.Fenech on Fri Aug 14, 2009 11:23 am

    Finished the Seahawk FGA.6. Had to omit the drop tanks as I may have made a mistake somewhere and the tank was hitting the wheel covers. Anyway, the seahawk depicts an aircraft from 810 Sqn, HMS Albion, Suez crisis 1956.

    So this year we can do the 'Suez Crisis' set up Joseph, I managed to finish the Egyptian Fl10/Sherman and hope the Israeli early M50 soon ... prosit again!

    My father is a veteran of that forgotten battle, he served on HMS Monksman which was the first ship [minesweeper] to go into the Suez Canal after the blockade by Nasser ... it is sad that this battle went almost forgotten due to imperial political issue issues at that time, Malta was heavily involved in the air attacks as well.
