    Decided the Alphasim Hallybag is next ...

    I decided it was about time the Alphasim Halifax BIII, C8 & Halton received some fresh paint.

    I'm starting with the Halton, re-drawing it prior to paint. Then I'll work backwards through to the BIII, combining elements of Shessi's & Pepe's work as I go.

    Here's an early WIP of the panel & rivet re-drawing...

    UT,

    Could you clear-up for me:

    Was the basic aircraft the Handley Page Halifax HP-70?

    Was the B.III a bomber version and the C8 and Halton both passenger/cargo versions?

    Cheers,
    MR

    Hi MR,

    HP61 was the BIII bomber for the RAF

    HP70 was the C.VIII cargo/freighter for the RAF. Postwar quite a few were used by fledgling airlines as cargo carriers. The design was developed further into the Halton as an interim passenger airliner for BOAC.

    I thought I could improve the BOAC paint for the HAlton, & having developed the basic template, I can see how I can use this as the basis for C.VIII paints, then some B.VI (Pepe's files), & B.III paints.

    Thanks for the info, UT.

    Can't have too many of these old transport/freight carriers IMHO.

    Cheers,
    MR
