    Airfix Walrus Engine

    Oh yeah! I was going to post this earlier. It's probably one of the best pictures I've seen of a Walrus's Peggy engine. It's from the IWM. Chris

    Airfix Walrus Engine

    As a general rule, I don't follow kit instructions when painting engines, especially Bristol engines. Most kits makers get it wrong. Chris

    Airfix Walrus Engine

    So do I, but how many others who do not have good photos of a Bristol Pegasus engine might paint this to look like an American-built engine. I see that mistake quite often on modelling forums. It wouldn't have taken much effort for Vector/Neomega to have included a painting guide. Chris

    Fairey Battle MkI, II and V external differences

    The only visible difference that I'm aware of is the exhaust pipes. The early ones were fitted with the kidney or slotted type while later ones had triple ejector style exhaust. Chris

    Gaging interest: Crowdfunded model kits

    I'm guessing you meant gauging instead of gaging, is in something about to make you vomit. Chris
