My build will be, in a way, a logical consequence of this purchase...



...that is, the downed RAF pilots from Empress Miniatures very characterful Jazz Age range.

I intend to build a downed version of this wonderful jazzy cargo plane...











The images above are not all Victorias, but the Valentias, Vernon, and Vimys are similar in structure.

Making crashed airplanes (or any vehicles for that matter) are not the easiest of projects but I have mog wanted to make a go of it. Even if the result is supposed to look like a metallic sallad requires at least a show of attempt at understanding of the inner workings of the aircraft to make it look available. Luckily I have an excellent guide by the diorama guru Richard Payne which I hope will see me through.

The whole thing is meant to become a centerpiece/objective for my NWF/BOB project: A Jazz Age journey through NWF with Hammers

Looking forward to that. Oddly enough I have a kit of a Victoria in 1/72 that I've never got around to building.

I'd have to locate it first and I'm currently on the other side of the world to it and will be for another month or so.

By the by I remembered mine's a Vernon not a Victoria, very similar craft. If you want one as a reference, the kit was by Maquette. Here you go:

The Vernon wa a commercial variant of the same of the same basic design, wasn't it?

Yeah, well, I don't really think I need it. Probably "A lot of of squealing for very little wool" as the crone said, fleecing the hog. If you could scan the plans to pdf and mail them to me I'd appreciate it.

More than happy to but I won't have access to them for another six weeks, I'm in Brazil at pres.

IIRC there is a website that has kit instructions. Might be long shot as it's a fairly obscure kit and damned if I can recall the name or url of the site.

Have you seen Hammers builds before, Akula? It'll probably be better than the original plane! Shocked
