Rummaging through my (limited) Airfix stash, I found these, which would all qualify, I think:







I am not in "shipbuilding mode", and given my penchant for SAAF subjects, I have decided on the Beaufighter, which I will do as a rocket armed Beaufighter X, of 16, or 19 Squadron SAAF:




The kit is complete, except for the two propellers!!



I found that the AC 47 Gunship kit is missing its wings! I have no idea what happened, but I guess I can use the two propellers from this kit for the Beaufighter?

I think you'll find the C47 props are a bit small, and they turn the wrong way, n/t

end up building an "in flight" model, using the AC 47 prop "hubs", and some clear plastic discs for "spinning props".
That way, it won't be too noticeable (I hope)

I think I could spare the Beaufighter props as I will be using the Lancaster blades.
Let me know what ya what to do.

Thanks,

Thank you for your kind offer.
I have also received a similar offer from William DC.

I am looking at options at the moment, and will let you know.
Thanks again
