    Revell 1/72 Avro Shackleton AEW.2

    My favourite Avro design. And you are doing her justice.

    The motor is now complete. The Maybach HL230 P30 was a re-bored HL210 P30 to increase the displacement from 21,000cc to 23,000cc. During production of the HL230 the maximum rpm was reduced to 2500 by the factory. There were two versions of the HL230, the P30 as used in the Panther and variants of and the King Tiger and Jagdtiger and the P45, as used in the Mid and Late Tiger's and the Sturmtiger. The only decals that come for the engine in the kit is the data plate on the engine at the front. The label for the air filter's came from my decal bank.

    Started painting the engine. The colour is about a right match for the engine I'm copying. DSC_3501_11864 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_3502_11865 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr DSC_3503_11866 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr

    Hi Andrew. A lot won't be visible unless I do the upper hull and turret removable?

    I noticed the fire extinguisher on the left wasn't sitting right. So now I've rectified it. DSC_3485_11849 by Darren Greenwood, on Flickr

    First discrepancy I've found with the kit are that the MG ammo bags are a little on the small side, compared to Meng ones from my King Tiger (the MG ammo bags were on the small side in their King Tiger's too) So I'll be using the Meng ones.
