Folks:

Rob Stevens over at West Coast Hobbys in beautiful Port Alberni, BC, is selling the SH72095 B-18 Bolo for $20.00 CDN. There is another ~20% off for the US folks via the currency exchange.  I just bought 2.



Rob says:

I have a more of these in inventory than I want  if anyone drools on your kits, tell them to send me a note “Carl Sent Me” and I’ll do the same deal .. Cheers   Rob

Is that Firefly U8 a whif ???
According to the official FAA website the U8s were converted AS Mk4s - I doubt they'd change the engine or back-seater's areas.  U9s were ex-AS Mk5s.

Think "Shackfly" would be a better name for post-WW2 versions.

I have seen references (such as "Fairey Aircraft since 1915" by H.A. Taylor) that the U.8 was a conversion of the A.S.7/T.7.  This is what is represented with this kit I believe.

Also see photo below:

Tried it ---  nacelle is too big for a Spit ---- F-82 is another thing  ;)  (nearside nacelle in this pic below)  The nacelle happens to fit a Tempest quite well though, or the Martin Baker MB5 ---

It would appear that the U8s were AS.4s with the new engine, tall fin & bubble over the rear cockpit.

The U-9 Drones were standard ex-AS.5s - only external mods were the small wingtip pods.

If putting that bearded engine on a Spitty you would need to enlarge the fin too .... but what Mark of Spit would you start with ??, surely not a Mk.Vb.

If you have an old Frog[spawn] Shackleton, you could try the match-up but it doesn't fit very well (already tried that too). I would use a Mk.21 or 22 or even a Spiteful, then you could just use some Attacker wings (no radiators on them) ----- the problem with using a Spitfire is it's just too small an airframe, for instance, compare a Sea Fury with a Spitfire and see what difference there is, then have a look at this pic, the engine/cowling package on the Firefly is the same power egg

Errr...no.  The more I look into this, it does appear that the U.8s were converted AS.7s.  And in fact, multiple sources confirm that 34 Mark 7s were actually built new as U8s.

The distinguishing features being the radiator (moved from wing to chin), canopies and tail, all of which are identical to the AS.7.  It would make absolutely no sense to retrofit the AS.4/5 so intensively for use as a target.

Latest email special from Rob Stevens @ West Coast Hobbys:

We have Special Hobby kits SH48158 and SH48135 Grumman Guardians on sale @ $39.00 Canadian until Sunday Oct 25th. These kits WILL NOT be going to the SALE section of the site at that time.

For our US subscribers, the kits make a fixed rate postage of $16.23 anywhere in the US. Remember, a request for quote dosen't cost you anything ! .. A nice kit but BIG and takes up a lot of much needed shelf space for new issues. Good deal for the US members.

Just got my box out ( the 91 Sqd in WWII boxing) to confirm and the answer is "yes they do". You get 5 blades + spinner etc for the options in the box and then 6 blades + spinner etc as unused parts.
