Hi

We do not have enough Defiant´s kits to continue building the rest in order to complete the series.

Therefore my father decided to build one of our Vacum form kit we have in our stash.

Here are some photos of the Vickers Windsor.

Excellent choice!
The nose is very reminiscent of the early B52 to my eye

Strangely it does. On the other hand maybe it is one of only few configs that fit the airframe.

A great pair of Defiants Santiago and that Vickers Windsor work in progress is something to behold, I've never heard of the type but it looks fascinating. Marvellous work!

Hi guys,

Many thanks for your comments ShaunW. Yes, the Vickers Windsor is not a common type. I also enjoy when my father start this kind of project.

Here are the final photos

My father also took some photos of others Vickers in order to see the different sizes. (Vickers Wellington, Vicker Warwick, Vicker Wellesley).

Most illuminating lineup!
That Windsor is quite a respectable beast! 4 main u/c, tailsitter, and automatic gun barbettes!
Accolades to your father!

cheers,

David

Many thanks David.

I am totally agree with you.

While we still selecting the rest of the Defiant and wait for the kits, my father is thinking about doing another Vacum Form kit, the Consolidated Coronado.

Some lovely builds as always Santiago.

You are rapidly running out of shelf space though!

Hi guys,

Many thanks for your comments. Yes, totally agree. We are running out of space quite quickly.

My father has finished another model. He has built a Junker Ju388.

This model is part of the group of captured WWII aircrafts with British markings.

We have many models to build in the future. Here are all the German aircrafts with British markings done so far.
