    Just to let you know that I finally got an answer to why the Wellington in my photo showed an unrecognised code. I spoke to someone from the CCMAA (Coastal Command & Maritime Aviation Association) who told me that No. 172 flew with OQ and, despite what the Internet says, never used OG.

     

    Thankyou for your efforts on my behalf. 

     

    Have a lovely New Year. 

    Well done! Nothing better than a solved mystery!

    Definitely a Wellington. The object projecting under the fuselage just behind the bomb doors looks like the fairing for a retractable Leigh light, as fitted to some Coastal Command Wellingtons.

    Interesting photo in Wellington at War showing Wellington GRXIVs of 304 (Polish) squadron. The code should be "QD" but looks like QO.

  3. Sorry to hear about your father. We found interesting stuff when my father died a couple of years ago. 

    It looks like a wellington. Colour scheme looks like coastal command. I'll have a look in some books about squadron codes unless someone else beats me to it!

    Never done sculpting on this scale before, It's a real challenge..

    Mind where you stick your spatula.

    These bring back some memories. All out of the box except for new transfers...I mean decals when the originals were unusable.

    Yay! Fantastic. I was hoping for this bird!


  6. I think it's worth looking at some of the stuff on You Tube. I have found scale-a-ton really helpful and inspirational. He also makes some good comments about equipment, including airbrushes.
