Special Hobby Westland Whirlwind Mk 1


Recommended Posts

Oooo not seen the Dieppe raid aircraft images before, great photos and really does show the slapped on fashion on the nose cone.  I have recently finished the Classic Airframes kit as a Dieppe raid machine and that a great kit which has great cockpit details and shape.  Although I did scratch various details too.

 

I am very much looking forward to the Special Hobby kit and having seen their cockpit details ( okay the seat is the wrong shape but we need something to change) I have very high hopes for the kit and I can't wait.

What for are the small bumps above the wing tips behind the position lights?

Although often reported as a fact, Whirlwinds did not take part in the Dieppe raid. The scheme in the photos is for a pre D Day experiment/ German defenses probe around the Pas De Calais named Operation Starkey.

Thanks Steve for putting me right, every day is a learning day.  

All the best
