I'm gonna be naughty and post my quarter scale Wimpy here. I just move house to about 500meters from a Wellington Crash site. Through a good friend I obtained an engine cowling flap from this particular aircraft and Eduard was so kind to send me the Eduard Big Ed set. May 4th 1943. The RCAF 428th Ghost Squadron Wellington Mk.X returned from a successful bombing raid on Dortmund and, when almost home free and the dutch coastline in sight, was suddenly shot down by a German Nightfighter Bf110. Here's a pic from the plane. The only one I could find in the local museum where crash relics are displayed. Sadly the pic seems to be photoshopped and not the real deal. Radio codes should be red I reckon too. More on the crash, memorial and graves at the local church later. This is what I'm working with: And here's the engine cowl flap. Black paint still present. Stay tuned!
