What do you mean by LGs?

If you mean landing gear then the gear shown is a fixed, non-retractable undercarriage, made from piano wire.

Any further progress on this build? I picked up a kit with the wing partly built and have added to my "to do" list

Twist my arm, and I'll do what I have been promising myself for three years: A big twin 480 powered Blenheim IV laser cut kit..

Or maybe even bigger..


The balsacraft is the MKI Blenheim. Ugly brute really. The MKIV was the more successful..if 'Blenheim;' and 'successful' can be said in the same sentence.


Thy didn't carry enough bombs, had no defensive armament to speak of, an were too slow to avoid flak.

The only areas they really scored were as a night fighter,with radar, until replaced by the Beaufighter, and as reconnaissance.

As a bomber, they could only be used against lightly defended targets with no fighter opposition. A fact which became apparent pretty quickly aftre squadrons were slaughtrered in numbers.

They had some success in the Western Desert against tanks etc.

A strange aircraft..the 'medium' bomber was almost useless by the cessation of hostilities - the heavy bomber or the fighter bomber ground attack aircraft (like mosquitoes, typhoons and the like or even hurricanes) were much more useful.
