Model Day at the Hawkinge Battle of Britain museum, October 1, 2022


a few photos of our display table  - East Kent Scale Modellers - at the Hawkinge Battle of Britain museum today. 

Medway Modellers had an impressive table which featured the massive 1/32nd scale HK Models Lanc and plenty of other beautiful models. According to Ben who built it, the Lancaster took two years and six months to complete. One thing I learnt - note the absence of any exhaust stain on the outside stack of the outer engine. This is due to the wing dihedral...

..and a rare view of the museum's ongoing Heinkel He 111 restoration - not a CASA but a genuine Heinkel build that went to Spain and survived.
