Hi All,

Little bit of a story attached to this so bear with me, My Step Fathers Father passed away last year (just before xmas) and he was a navigator on Catalinas during WWII. Amongst his many books etc, was a scrap book full of photos from various airshows museums etc. Most of the aircraft we can name but this one has got us stuck, I know the picture isn't very clear, as I am unable to do any scans at the mo. The pictures were taken at the Air Show at RAF Duxford Spring 1982, any help would be greatly appreciated..

Big thanks for you replies boys,

Andy L, I was going to post on Aeroscale as my next approach but as Andy B came to the rescue I won't need too now, but i thought my first port of call would be the bulldogs. The Wifey isn't too bad, we're taking it one day at a time, she'd got a hospital appointment on wednesday and we'll see how we go from there, thanks for asking mate.

Andy B, thanks for the quick response and the link, I can print the info from Wiki-pedia for my step Father, he'll be well chuffed, cheers mate.

Luciano, thanks for letting me know that there's a kit in circulation, may keep my eye out for it, cheers mate.

Oh!, and Andy, maybe some therapy is needed for that resin problem you have, and definately not from the Accurate Armour stand......

Cheers guys

Jason
