DWI Wellington conversion for 1/72 Airfix Wellington Mk.1A/C
BEFORE ORDERING PLEASE READ TERMS FOR ORDERING AND SHIPPING
This is a interesting conversion for the Wellington, with only 15 entering service they are quite a rare version of the aircraft. Basically these were used for mine sweeping and detonating sea mines, using a magnetic charge that was developed within the ring suspended below the fuselage. the electronic force to produce a magnetic field was produced by a engine installed within the fuselage.
I have tried to create a good representation of all the external features, the ring is in quarters and is assembled with over lapping joints. the yoke at the front is one piece brass casting and brass rod is supplied to be cut to length to make the underwing and rear fuselage supports.
A small plastic strip is supplied to make the sliding rails for the original hatch on the top fuselage.
Note Vokes filters are included as most if not all of these aircraft operated in the middle east at some point, however if you can find references check them or make up your own mind. Note all parts are shown in black or in brass on assembled model.
Please note decals for DWI aircraft are available on DK Decals sheets 72063 and 72069, one option on either sheet.
Please allow up to 2 to 3 weeks for manufacturing. I will email as soon as I have shipped the parts.
