That works very well. Your brain says 'It's a Varsity. Er, no it isn't. It's a twin engined, nosewheel Hastings. No, it isn't...................'  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

24 were always seen as a 'Posh Squadron' amongst Transport Command, as they had a VIP Flight of 3-4 aircraft, and their Hastings C4s were polished to the N'th degree!
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Could be right, LOTS of them.  ;D

But Spinners' Lanc has been hi-jacked by the USAAC.
I think you mean "Liberated" :P

Handley Page Haydock C.2 - No.30 Squadron, RAF Transport Command, 1963

Whilst this looks like the Haydock C.1 it's the slightly different C.2 and it was actually quicker to make a new skin from scratch than adapt my earlier skin. I've taken the opportunity to improve the fuselage cheat line and will revise my C.1 at some time. The 3D model is of the IL-14T with the large cargo door on the port side and as No.24 Squadron are far too posh for lugging cargo around I've given the C.2 to No.30 Squadron. I've enjoyed doing these!

Hmm. I have an IL-14 in the stash................................tempting. Very Tempting.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Talking Pictures are showing a short film this afternoon at 16.50hrs called 'The New Men' which looks like a Lightning fest.

They've got a few of these Government Information newsreels over the next week or so. Both WWII and post War

Indeed!  Chris has a plaice for those who generate excess puns.

Cue quick chorus of "Whale kipper whelk  come in the eel  side........."

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you....."
