Toy soldiers, wargames and modelling madness.
that is a wierd looking bird!
Don MI know what you mean - the proportions aren't quite right.
I always lusted after the Matchbox kit of this strange looking bird.It does seem a little strange now to have such a huge aircraft as a light bomber.Nice work Wing Commander.
I disagree with the previous learned Gentlemen's comments. Any remarks about "a face that only a mother could love" regarding this modern marvel of streamlined engineering should be immediately disregarded :O)The Wellesley's double bubble cockpits, blended cowling and advanced geodesic duraluminium airframe are the way forward. With this design it should be possible to fly 1201 miles at 223 mph! Kind regards, Chris
Stuh...range! Almost as weird ad that Blohm and Voss recon aircraft...
You have to love the odd ducks!But I gotta ask - why do you have this oddity? Were you planning an East Africa campaign at some point. It had me thinking of the pictures in Wargames Illustrated (way back in the day) of the Italian conquest of Somaliland (put on by Rapid Fire authors' if my memory is true).CheersPD
Yes, I have gamed the East African air war. It is a fascinating campaign fought with a motley collection of obsolete aircraft. You should see my squadron of SAAF Ju86s.The Wellesley is an excellent aircraft (twice the bombload of a Battle!)
PaulI remember the Matchbox kit appearing - but never felt the need to own one...
Chris KempA challenging scratchbuild in 1/144 eh Chris?
Archduke PiccoloThat'd be the splendid Bv141. Another scratchbuilding challenge....
Peter DouglasHell, why not?
Wg Cdr LudditeThese other chaps don't understand do they? Apart from CK - and he's beyond help.
TimI get it alright!! I'm just hoping that no one otices some of the wierd stuff I collect!!Cheers PD
Peter DouglasYou're among friends Peter...
Did someone spill coffee on a single seat fighter design and two pages blended into one?Weird .. but compelling!
GeordieI think that's a fair question!
