Beautiful work sir!

That was exactly my impression. Great looking model, and cool subject. But I sold mine because it was just to quirky in the air. I expect if you made even minor improvements to the ailerons it is probably a big help. Mine was flyable without any modification, just not pleasant enough to make the cut when I was clearing out space. I told the guy who bought it exactly what the problem was, and advised him to consider modifying it.

Been converting an ultra micro B25 Mitchell to an Avro Manchester, very close now,
needs squadron codes, she’s ready to fly may happen this afternoon.



Sanded down the cowls to create the taped look, plastic tubes for exhausts
then weathered using artists pastels. The canopy was made from the Mitchells
original front canopy and the top of the bomb aimers canopy, 1mm strips for the
framing, perspex painted gloss black then dry brushed silver. Strange shaped
Middle upper turret from the Mitchell's rear gun position

Where she came from.

Wildcat to CAC Boomerang conversion close just pilot to be painted and fitted.


Decals are 1/24th scale which are a little small but wasn’t going to paint them!


Here she is with my Wildcat, fair bit of work to get her from a Wildcat to a
Boomerang, the fuselage is a little long, the wing span too big and the cowl
not fat enough but in the air close enough, stand off scale!


Now to get some air under her wings.


How she started out.

no catchy phrase
Yeah no kidding! Just out of curiosity, how did you get the vert and horizontal stabs like that? Did you cut and sand or did you glue an entire tail section?

Added to the front of the tailplane, blue foam and filler,
then cut the elevator and rudder to shape.

Thanks mackone and Angelo, has been a challenging but rewarding project, bit of a
fan of this aeroplane and been lucky to look over a couple of real ones in my time.
In the next couple of years we may see four or even five airworthy Boomerangs in
Australia, not bad when you consider only around two and fifty hundred where
manufactured.







For those who wish to know more.

Damn, Peter - excellent transformation! And what a plane in the full-scale world!

Wow! Fantastic work, Peter. Love the FM-2/Wildcat VI of course. But the Boomerang and Manchester are extreme conversions!

One note on the Manchester: unless you’re modelling an early one, there should be a 3rd vertical stabilizer. Not that most flyers would notice!
