Convair B-36D Peacemaker

Convair B-36D/F/H/J Peacemaker - American ten-engine strategic heavy bomber, developed from the earlier B-36B. The main difference was the installation of four additional General Electric J-47 jet engines with a thrust of 5,200 lbf each (23kN), which significantly improved basic characteristics such as speed and range. In the history of aviation, this was almost the only case of building a multi-engine aircraft with mixed power plants.
This feature gained it the slogan "Six turning, four burning".

With later modifications, its radar equipment was significantly improved and also its protective weapons optimized.
The combat service of the more than 300 aircraft built lasted until 1959, when they were completely replaced by the famous Boeing B-52 Stratofortress. None of them ever took part in any of the military conflicts of its time, but the B-36 rightly justified its name as the main preserver of peace in the world in the first decade of the Cold War.

Westland Whirlwind Mk.I ‘Cannon Fighter’ 1:32
In the days leading to the outbreak of the Second World War, the British Air Ministry issued requirements calling for two types of a new fighter aircraft, a lighter one armed just with machine guns and the other one with heavier cannon armament. To this specifications, the Spitfire and Hurricane machine gun fighters were developed.

The requirement for the heavier type led to the creation of the twin-engined Westland Whirlwind fighter. Its production gave a total of over a hundred of examples, and it was just the shortage of the Peregrine power plants that prevented further production. The Whirlwind saw service over the English Channel both in the fighter and ground-attack roles, for the latter the airframes were adapted by the addition of bomb racks and called the FB Mk.I. It was only in 1944 that the Whirlwinds were replaced by Hawker Typhoons.

Our model of the Whirlwind portrays the fighter variety of the type, and comes on ten styrene sprues and one with the clear parts. The decals cater for four machines which sport the earlier green and earth as well as the later grey and green schemes.

a model of this type has never been kitted in 1/32 before

accurate and well researched decals with a set of servicing stencils

Railway Bylines Magazines
RAILWAY BYLINES, now in its 26th year. Colour cover, 56 pages of text and, like British Railways Illustrated, some 60-70 high quality black and white images.

There are maps and plans/diagrams in most issues. Subject matter is wide ranging and the BYLINES in the title is very deliberate; homely branch lines serving villages and country towns, industrial lines serving mills, foundries, works, quarries, mines and ports, together with their often ancient locomotives and their correspondingly elderly and eccentric stock. Both standard and narrow gauge with occasional Irish subjects.

Most frequently portrayed period is the 1950s-1960s before such workings and lines began to disappear, though occasionally earlier eras are covered. Editorial is wide-ranging - buildings, stock, structures, social/human aspects and so on - history/nostalgia with a light touch that matches its often out-of-the-way, off-beat subjects.

Latest Warpaint book just arrived

BRISTOL SCOUT   by Matthew Willis
One of the great unsung keystones in the development of aerial combat, the Bristol Scout was originally designed as a racing aircraft. It was used by the RNAS and the RFC as a 'scout', or fast reconnaissance machine, and was one of the first single-seaters to be used as a fighter aircraft.

Designed in the second half of 1913 the first flight was made at Larkhill on 23 February the following year after which it was exhibited at the March 1914 Aero Show at Olympia in London. It was evaluated by the British military in May 1914 at Farnborough and its period of service saw great leaps forward in the design and tactical usage of fighter aircraft, and many of the earliest attempts to perfect forward-firing guns were tested in action using Bristol Scouts.

An RNAS Scout was the first landplane to be flown from a ship, when Flt.Cdr. B.F Fowler flew No. 1255 from the flying deck of the seaplane carrier HMS Vindex on 3 November 1915. The aircraft saw service in both Europe and the Middle East but by mid-1916 was largely relegated to training units.
This latest book in the Warpaint series covers the aircraft comprehensively, with an impressive historical text, and a selection of photographs that will be essential for any modeller considering a project.

Author Matthew Willis is well-known for his authoritative books on classic British aircraft, and we are particularly pleased to add this follow-up to his earlier volume on the Sopwith Pup to the series.
