Special Hobby Westland Whirlwind Mk 1

Recommended Posts

That looks great, after waiting all these years for a kit of the Whirlwind I can keep patient for a while longer if it helps to get it right

 

Cheers

Looking back at the fist test assembly, that wing span looks soooo long wonder if it will fit my display case

 

I will most likely get one of these at some point

Had a slow day yesterday, weather was c**p so did a little research. Just to give folks an idea of comparison the Whirlwind has the same span as a de Havilland DH.9A, a Supermarine Walrus and a de Havilland Hornet. The ninak is a Wingnuts kit (if you have one) whilst the Walrus and Hornet are in 1/48 (Airfix & Classic Airframes). Smaller than a P-38 but still a substantial size to fit in the cabinet.

Looking at the CAD....the seat looks a strange shape?


Thats what I was thinking.  The seat I can replace. I am really looking forward to realistic and accurate flaps.  Those would be a PITA to rework.   Anyone count the exhaust stubs?  Doe the model have the correct number of cylinders?
