OK Merlins in sleeker cowls and different fins.
Why was the front turret removed, if it wasn't used for towing?
P.S what is your avator-looks like a Halifax or Lincoln in prototype colour scheme-but something not right about the nose
P.P.S What happened to the Halifax you were building a year or so ago?
Re photo : It's the combination of nose + engines + fins that's unusual. By the time the square fins got onto the Halifax, the early ones with the 'Tollerton' nose and Merlins generally weren't updated as they were too old by then. I only know of one other Halibag in this condition.
Yep, my avatar is one of the prototype Lincolns. PW 825 I think. The only thing unusual about it is the 'jolly' yellow undersurfaces. I lived on a Lincoln base in the early '60's, so I'm a bit of a Lincoln nut.
Progress on the Halibag is slow due to frequent business trips to Korea. I may take a week off work just to build.
