Wellies

 

One of the things missing from the East Africa equation is a 1/600th scale model of the ubiquitous, in East Africa at least, Vickers Wellesley medium bomber. There is an STL file available in 1/300th scale by Captain Ahab on Thingiverse but, as I don't yet own a printer being an inveterate Luddite, that's not really an easy option. I emailed Paul Sulley to see if he'd be kind enough to sculpt one for me and, after a bit of a think, he says he's going to have a go this weekend. I hope he can find the time to give it a go, as it would be a real shame not to have at least one scenario featuring this iconic interwar 1930's aircraft.

  1. You could also get the file, and then have a print service print it for you... likely not as cheap as buying a metal sculpt, but it might be, and will likely be more detailed (possibly exceedingly)
