Whirlwind Fighter by KK-Afterbrun
Whirlwind Fighter
After a bit of a wait, here is my Westland Whirlwind Fighter.

This hefty twin engine was fast, by 1938 standards, hitting 136 mph. The cigar shaped body and framed tear drop canopy made it quite agile, earning the nick name 'Cricky'.

In 1936, when the RAF was looking for a fighter that was armed with four 20mm cannons, Westland jumped at the chance but had to go agains three other companies to win the contract; Supermarine, Hawker, and Gloster.

Both Westland and Gloster made twin engine design, while Supermarine had three designs. Westland and Gloster were given the go ahead, with Gloster dropping out soon afterwards. Westland's design had four cannons in the nose rather then on the wings, making it easier to shot down the enemy  and had one other trick up it's sleave, it's range.

On a full tank, the Whirlwind had an approximate range of 800 Nautical Miles, far more then any other fighter in the RAF.

However due to the weak engines, rated at 880 HP each, the slow productions and the high landing speed, being 80 mph, only 116 were ever made.

Only two squadrens were ever equipped with this aircraft and they were removed from service in 1943, replaced by the Hawker Typhoon.

What is this assortment of parts?

Could this be a new model plane from me?

Can you guess what plane?

I'll give you a week before I show you the next step. Then you should know what it is. 

But if someone gets it right, I'll post an update.

The Surviver by KK-Afterbrun
The Surviver
This 1940 Romanian PZL 23 has seen better days. It's been shot full of holes, the lower gun spot is crumpled and it's tail skid is lost. (most likely from landing)

But at least it came back. You can tell this is one from 1940 from the Romanian Roundles on the wings. (Later they were switch to the Romanian Cross)

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Didn't I mention that I was going to make a PZL Karas at the begining of the year? Or was that last year?

I was getting fed up with it sitting when  I struggled to get the cockpit together. I left it alone for almost 7 to 8 months.

I only came back to it this past week and only finished this morning. (It might be next year for other who see this)

But with the rushing, I misplaced the tail skid. So rather then try and make a new one, I built the 'scaffolding' you see at the tail end of the plane.

I also used some of my bullet hole decals which I found a few years ago. (I really didn't want to use them unless I had a good reason for them)

I'll be putting a major update on my FC Fighters 2 tommorrow.

I should be up to chapter 100 with quiet a few more to do.

But I could be finished by years end if not early next year.

P.S. I've been sick for the past little while and wasn't able to put the chapters up sooner because of it.
