De Havilland Sea Vixen F (AW) Mk 2


I feel the need, the need to build.Some of you may remember that I made two sets of plans a while ago for the Scimitar and Sea Vixen. Having successfully done the Scimitar I am now pleasing Richard Vale by building The Sea Vixen.Not wishing to bore you all, this will be a truncated thread as the building proceedures are the same as my previous efforts.The Tail Booms/Tailplane & outer wings will be detachable. Same size same power.My eventual aim will be to fly (with the help of Richard Vale, Bob Partington & A.N. Other) the Canberra, Javelin, Scimitar & Sea Vixen together as a Cold War Flight.
Now where`s the Whisky?

Or, you could clear the pictures off the living room walls and you'll have instant more storage,,, Or dig the floor do the garden house lower so you can hang-um two deep from the ceiling!!!. I'm sure everyone will enjoy this build also! Thanks for the thread.... W

OOPS! I forgot the other rooms and it`s too wet to photograph the garage.
I recently broke up four good models. Can`t give them away.I even told my cleaning Lady that I`ve left them to her in my will. Wasn`t happy.

Really nice Terry, enjoying your build. One question, I was intrigued by the term "Coal Hole Observer" so I did a Google on it, and seen that they had the observer setting to the right and below the pilot with very little view,,, ""The observer's cockpit was known as the coal-hole because of the almost total lack of a view out of it, and it was not a popular arrangement."" I found that a little strange because he was suppose to be an observer, I guess he watched radar and other instrumentation and had nothing to do with the actual "view" around the plane? Thx for your thread, walt
