Proposal for a Night Fighters Group Build.

Recommended Posts

I'm seriously thinking of Wihelm Frankl's D-III for this if I can find any info on his aircraft. I've done a couple of preliminary google searches with no luck. From what I have found he had one night victory April 6, 1917. An FE 2b  shot down at 2:30 a.m... still researching this. If anyone has info it would be a great help.

Sweet! I will do so! :-)

 

That looks great! Very inspiring.

 

It is, it was my first scratchbuild:

Drop me a PM with your address and I'll send you a vac-formed engine cowl. Then you'll have no excuse not to finish!

I was going to say 'YAY!  I'm in' but then realized that a 1/48 Catalina Black Cat doesn't qualify despite its size.  Blast...   Would love to do a Black Widow P-61 tho...

With the best will in the world, a Mossie bomber, even in night paint, is not a night fighter! :)  A night-fighting Hurricane though would be fantastic!

Where to find a Paragon Designs fighter conversion kit for the Mossie?

What's your base model Gerhard, Revell's Mk IV bomber?

Mosquito of 515 squadron operating in the bomber support role. It'll be either a straightforward Mk VI with nose cannon or, if I can get the details a thimble-nose ASH Mk VI, the nose I think I'll have to scratch build because I haven't found any conversions in 1/32.

Well, I didn´t have to buy a new Black Widow! 

 

I accidentally(!) found a Trumpeter F6F-5(N) Hellcat Nightfighter when rummaging trough my stash the other night!     :thumbsup:

 

Didn´t remember I had it, can´t even for my life remember when or where I bought it!   :shrug:

 

Must be getting old.....  :tumble:

 

But I´m good to go for the Nightfighter GB!    :punk:

 

Cheers!   :beer:

There's  only one nightfighter I want.That's the B-P Defiant.

 

Still no kit.(not counting the resin one).Hoping for Airfix to come with a 1/24 th one.

 

But a 32 nd will do too.

Yes

Yes. I think I am going to scratch this idea though, and do a Mk Vb Spit in Nighfighter guise, 1/24. I just need to find a source for RAF lettering in 1/24 scale. That seems even more difficult than a nose cone replacement for the Mossie.

Thank mozart. I built it in 1/48 scale already, just fancy a 1/24 one as well. I can get the Airfix 1/24 Mk Vb for about $60 all in. Really appreciate your offer, will shout out if I dont come right. Zane from Mavdecals said he would be able to help me out if I can send him the size of the letters. Can only do that when I have the kit in my lap. That's about a week away. They like Hens teeth over here for some reason. Only one HS has it in stock.
