    Who actually owns G-AWHK? Anyone know where I can find a good history on it?

    It might rankle a few purists, but I quite like that revised canopy....

    Never been a fan of the type,always looked 'wrong' to me,going right back to seeing it on the big screen as a nipper.

    Nice builds Daz. Must try and knock one of these up in 1/24 scale...

    Got me thinking though. If the Republicans had won the Spanish Civil War, the Battle of Britain movie wouldn't have been anywhere as good as it is without those Buchons and 2.111s!

    Ooh, a 1/24 Buchon would be amazing! The closest I have to that is a 1/32 Matchbox Messerschmitt 109E - and I think I would be crucified for modifying that!

    Is that the BOB film Buchon trainer? Shame they didn't keep the one piece canopy. I rather liked it.

    Hi Daz;

    There is a 1/32 Buchon resin conversion available from Grey Matter Figures...you'd just need a 109G to convert.

    I'm going to attempt a 1/24 conversion soon on a Trumpeter 109G. I've seen that the best starting point for the new cowling is a nose section from a P-51. Could be fun!

    Good luck with that - I'll look forward to seeing the results if you get it done!
