  1. Because I cannot summon the courage to start my 1/32 Tornado or 1/24 Mossie just yet I will jump in with a 1/35 Bren Carrier and 6 pounder anti-tank gun if that's ok? Cheers Kev
  2. Congrats to the winners, fantastic levels of modelling on display! Cheers Kev
  3. fantastic photos guys and great stories, I love this site for that. I have just got the Revell AC47D in 1/48 (wrong scale I know) It is to partner my Hurricane I am building. The Hurricane is modelled on a 111 Sqn aircraft from March 1941 flown by a Canadian pilot, he then went onto fly Dakotas as OC 31 Sqn in India where unfortunately he was killed in action. I also served on 111 and 31 sqn and see these a/c as a fitting tribute. WALKER, JAMES ARTHUR S/L (P) 40768 D.F.C. & Bar - Royal Air Force. From Gleichen. Alberta. Killed In Action Feb.8/44 age 25. #31 Squadron (In Caelum Indicum Primus). S/L. Walker was an ace, credited with destroying nine enemy aircraft. He was in the Battles of France and Britain and was with #111 Squadron flying Hurricane aircraft over Dunkirk when he shot down four aircraft in May and June, and three more in August of 1940. S/L. Walker flew Spitfire aircraft with #610 Squadron and was assigned to the Middle East with #94 Squadron to fly Hurricanes in 1941; in 1943 he went to India to Command #31 Squadron. One of the Sqdn. pilots ex F/O Andy Russel D.F.C. of Indian Head, Saskatchewan recalls the following, "S/L Walker's instructions in what to do in case they were attacked were, "dive for the ground in all directions." When Japanese Zero fighter aircraft attacked the Squadron every pilot followed instructions except Walker, who stayed up there flying his Dakota aircraft in circles so the rest of us could escape, he should have got the V.C. for his sacrifice." Does anyone have any pics of a Dakota in 31 sqn livery? I have just ordered a couple of books so hopefully, there will be some there. Cheers Kev
