Hello folks, here’s another of my entries to a Group Build over at Flory Models, a Short Sunderland Mk.III as flown by RAAF 10 Squadron out of Mount Batten in Plymouth (Italeri Kit No. 1352).
10 Squadron were one of several Sunderland squadrons to fly ASW screening sorties along the flanks of the invasion force during Operation Overlord.
Includes a fret of Photo Etch…
A fairly big bird in the making (for 1/72 anyway).
And here’s a photo taken by the crew of Sunderland Mk.III W4030 H of 10 Sqn RAAF which sank U-243 on 8 Jul, 1944. It’s a shame the decals don’t include W4040 (H) specifically, but there is an “H” in the decal sheet for one of the other squadrons, so I might have to use a bit of artistic license and use that instead of “Z”.
