I was just wondering if there were any threads/topics or desire for members to post any pre/post and current ww2 pics. Or even Korean/Vietnam/Other conflicts of aircraft in action...

 

Would appreciate any feedback. Thank you.

How about this one for a forgotten fighter/FB. The enigma that was.....

 

The Westland Whirlwind was a British twin-engined heavy fighter developed by Westland Aircraft. It was the Royal Air Force's first single-seat, twin-engined, cannon-armed fighter.

U.S. made P-39 Airacobras of the RAF 601st Squadron on the field at Duxford. The 601st was the only British fighter squad to fly the P-39/P-400b3615410e3f90b80ea015248dc8975ac.jpg

Wow. This is the first time i have seen P-40s operating from carrier decks. I didnt even know they did do that during the war. Is this somewhere in the Pacific..... Any info on the pic would be appreciated sir.

See there, that's how the USS Kittyhawk got its name. :)

 

Nah, just kidding. The USS Kitty Hawk was Christened on 21 May 1960.

 

The P-40F WARHAWKS are just off the coast of North Africa. They are

being delivered to a squadron(s) there by way of aircraft carrier which

was a common US way of delivery.

Now these babies are about to fly off the USS Thunderbolt in the North Sea just

off the coast of Germany. They're gonna go give Hitler 'What-For".

Ricky,

     I have all kinds of reference material on all types of WW2 fighter aircraft from when I

was still able to model. I built everything from a Fokker D.XXI to a Japanese Baka rocket

bomber to many Spitfires. Next time you are getting ready to build a kit I would be more

than happy to set you up with ideas.
