If you have 8 Lancaster kits in the stash.

Eight Lancasters is fine. It's the 1,000 sq ft of model railroading HO grass mats that's gonna be the killer. Could probably buy an actual airfield for that sum.

Via Facebook.

Sunderland and Catalina flying boats of RAF Coastal Command at Castle Archdale in Northern Ireland, January 1945. Nearly all the aircraft on strength with three Coastal Command squadrons are visible here, drawn up out of the water at Castle Archdale in Northern Ireland as Logh Erne froze over in January 1945.

More than 30 aircraft can be seen, including Sunderland's of No. 201 Squadron, and No. 423 Squadron RCAF, and No. 202 Squadron's Catalinas.

That'd be a good 1/350 or 1/700 diorama ... unless you're stinkin' filthy rich & have lots of time on your hands, in which case you could attempt it in 1/48*! ;)

You know when you find that picture that screams diorama. Stress testing the prototype Bailey Bridge. How to do it in 1942 ? Drive tanks onto it. Then tank on top of tank 8)



You know it just had to be done. Finally, I have all the bits, except the Mk V** Engineering tank that are available as kits in 1/35. Bronco Bailey Bridge,Bronco A10 and IMA Valentine Bridgelayer.
So I have sprung into action here is the current status, component parts as a test


Scratchwork on the Mk V** Tank. Based on the Takom Mk V female

I just find it amazing that the Mk.V** was still operational in 1942! 8)


I hope to see this in the styrene one day, Brian! :smiley:
