About Me

My photo
Chatham, Kent, United Kingdom
I'm 50. And after losing Mom am now unemployed (for the moment) I am also disabled, and suffer from Avoidant Personality Disorder. I also like Photography, Museums and Art Galleries. Military vehicles have always been of an interest to me, and I only got into aviation after my Father passed away fifteen years ago.

Airfix Avro Shackleton build 26/08/2021

Latest progress on the Shackleton AEW. As can be seen I've dropped the Elevators to give the Aircraft some character. The large Radome under the fuselage of the Shackleton housed the AN/APS 20 scanner. The Radar itself by the time it was fitted to the Shackleton, had originally been used on Royal Navy Douglas Syraider's and then Fairey Gannet AEW.3 aircraft.
