Great addition to an unusual WW2 early bomber.

I was always fascinated by the very pronounce angle of the wing chord to the fuselage. This feature was used to increase lift and improve visibility during take off and landing. I am not aware of this feature being used again on any production aircraft as it causes lots of drag in cruise.


I do suggest that your design should be also available in 1:33 scale to be consistent with other WW2 bomber models out there ( like the GPM Wellington ). I know it can be scaled up, but the parts may not fit on the page, or the details will be blurry )


Best wishes on the design.

British aircraft industry was known for trying different, unusual and odd looking ideas. Most were fails but some were pretty spectacular successes like Harrier, Mosquito, HP Victor. A lot of them were just relatively short series just to recuperate costs.

Great looking Whitley. I owe you beer if you ever come to Toronto ��

You are closing an important gap in paper modeling. And there were 1800+ produced, more than the Hampden. It did lots of first for the RAF. Although I am more to the other side of the spectrum of size preferring the smaller 1/100 or better the 1/300 scales. Looking forward to your release.

By the way, very educational your designing method. Thank you for sharing.

I think Whitleys were the first ones that flew support missions to resistance groups in occupied Europe.That was a bit before Halifaxes and long before Liberators were used for the purpose.
