Here's a few of mine. Me-110 from Don Smith plans, 2-25cc Homelite conversions. Ziroli 92" P-47, G62 engine, Ziroli SBD, G62, and an unusual one, a 102" Storch, enlarged from Dennis Bryant plans.

Dear All
This is fantastic, look at all those beautiful warbirds.
How can killing machines look so nice.

The post listing the Corsair kills in Korea was also very interesting.
I think they need to change the name of this site from rc universe, to rc bestplace.

Dear Ian
Are you the Ian Bailey, responsible for the 76 span Tempest.
If so I had that plan and foolishly sold it without actually making the model.
Bad move that.

Phil,
Using "goggle.de" I found Topp's website, but it took me several years to find it.... Here it is: [link=http://www.rc-tronics-topp-rippin.de/]Topp[/link] or directly to the Fw190-page [link=http://www.rc-tronics-topp-rippin.de/fw190a_5.htm]here[/link].


Well, we never can't have too many Tempests, can't we?

My Ron Daniels 1/10,9-scale:



My Brian Taylor 1/8-scale:



My Ian Bailey 1/6,5-scale in progress:



Sivert Bjork's 1/4-scale:

Dear S1
Thanks for the info regarding the P40.
It is quite interesting to know how much effort you put into researching
the particular aircraft you are modelling and also it's Pilot.
The murder of the "Fifty" was one of the more un- savory episodes of World War Two.
It was an Officers duty to try and escape, the German Officers tryed to escape also.
Hitler wanted every escapee executed, but Goering persuaded him to cut it down to fifty.
Goering thought the Allies would treat German Pow's in a similar manner, if they executed
all of them.
Keep up the good work.
Regards Phil Goff.

Dear Christer
That Tempest is huge.
Looks like it would need a mini Napier sabre engine to fly it.
The Tempest website is excellent by the way.

Oh Bum
I have just seen the MK 14/19 Spit on rcflyers.co.uk's website.
I think in America you call these kits KMP.
In England they are distributed by a company called YT international.
It is supposed to be selling for £250 which includes retracts.
How do they do it for the money. No confirmed delivery dates though.
Gimme Gimme.

Two of my Hangar. The P40 is a VQ and I only recently discovered that the markings, which I already knew to be 112 Sqdn, western Desert, was also the personal aircarft of Neville Duke, of Hawkwer Hunter fame. The retracts are Robary 615's ( I know all about the complaints, but these have been fine) Robart struts and wheels. Power Magnum 91FS. The (Late) Hurricane is the KMP, usual 17 Sqdn markings, Robart 550 retracts, 7/16 struts and 4" wheels, power by YS 120.

Dear Bbuss
Sorry to hear of the loss of your Hurricane.
I hate it when any model crashes.
It is even more sad when a beautiful Warbird is lost.

I am planning to build a replacement, slightly less power (120 over the top) and this time make sure the elevator control is properly held together !!!

That spit looks real nice. Back in my plastic model days, I recall seeing at the local hobby shop a Hasegawa MkV 1/32 scale kit that was modified to MkXIX specs and painted in the swedish markings. Always thought that was a beautiful scheme.

Dear All
Here is a 1/6th scale Spit, built from the Mick Reeves kit.
The model was built by Colin Griffiths, a retired RAF Warrant Officer.
Has not flown yet, it is being reengined with a big Super Tigre.
Regards Phil G.

PS. Anybody got a Mossie.

Dear DaveGee
How do you chaps do it. It looks like a real one.
It makes me feel like smashing my models up. I won't do that of course.
Perhaps you chaps could give me some advice with detailing my 1/4 Spit I am building.
I have been modelling Twenty six years, and have never done rivet detailing etc.
I think this model is big enough to be able to take this amount of detailing.

I have seen the fullsize Thunderbolt flying at Duxford (UK), it looks very agile
for such a big and heavy aeroplane.
The P47 at Duxford is a "M" variant which I think is a sprint machine.

PS. What is the wingspan and weight of your model. Please.

Regards Phil G.

Hi Phil G. That P-47 is an Aerotech kit, and is made of molded carbon fiber. All the rivets and panel lines are molded in, and it is extremely accurate. Although expensive, it makes for a museum-quality replica when it's finished. The last picture I uploaded was taken at Boxted, Essex, last August. We flew it at the airshow there. I'm working on another model from Aerotech now, which will be an M model, painted in the colors of Russ Kyler's Lorene. He's still around and we are planning on flying it this summer at an airshow with him in attendance. The model will have openable gun bays showing the ammo trays and 50 cal machine guns, working cowl flaps and other stuff, too. Cheers, DaveGee

Phil G: I forgot to answer your question from your last post. The plane is an exact 1/6 scale. Wingspan 82.5" length about 73 inches, and weighs 34 pounds. DaveGee

Great Thread!
There are some very nice Warbirds represented here. I really do need a new digital camera to post my Warbirds on here...maybe for my Birthday this year?

I'm greatful I live in a free country to persue the hobbies I love and share the friendships I have. Our Warbirds represent our history. I can't help but look at my B-25's and remember the famous Doolittle Raid,
the North Africa and South Pacific Campaigns, and the fact my Aunt Patsy helped build B-25's at the Fairfax Plant in Kansas City. I'm naming my Ziroli B-25J Mitchell after her and she is honored.

I won't ramble on....I salute all the brave men and women who have served, fought and died for the cause of Freedom. I also say thank you to every modeler who has ever built a Warbird and taken the time to research the history of his/her particular aircraft and share that knowledge with someone else.

Good luck in all your future endeavors.

"Keep 'Em Flying!"

Dear Flak
Please do ramble on, I love to here stories like the one you have just told us about your Aunt Patsy. We owe people like your Aunt a tremendous debt of gratitude, they were prepared to give everything to bring peace and freedom to the world. I agree with every word you have written
in your above post.

Every action during WW2 was heroic in my opinion, but the Doolittle raid does stand out some what.
B25's taking off from a carrier deck, it's not on! I am sure also, the crews knew what to expect from the Japs
if they were shot down. Unfortunately some of them were, and we all know what the out come of that was.
Below are some pics of the B25's taking off on the Doolittle raid.

Flak, is there any chance you could buy the digital camera today as we would all love to see those Warbirds of yours. Pretty please.

Regards Phil G.
