Flight 19 5th December 1945 missing in the Bermuda Triangle
Posted by PatrickW on Thursday, October 17, 2019 2:23 PM

I have just watched the Nat Geo channel on Sky where they talk about draining the Bermuda Triangle. They centre on Flight 19 on the 5th December 1945 out of Fort Lauderdale and that the flight of 5 planes disappeared soon afterwards. Plus the flying boat sent to find them!

I've found various pictures on the net of the flight/planes and their markings. The problem I have is, as the pictures are in black and white, what is the aircraft colourway, black, dark blue?  I'm told Sea Blue Gloss although it looks to me to be either semi gloss or matte finish.

 

The kit I have found and bought from ebay is.....

Research....................

That was a couple of weeks ago.

Finished today.................................

That color reminds of those deep holes that are scattered throughout the ocean around there:  one was called Dean's hole I think. Freaky things!  Thats besides the point though.  Nice job on that Avenger. I have only done two planes and didn't enjoy doing them all that much.

Thanks justmike. Yes you are right, get everything cleaned up, painted on the sprue, cut and sand the pieces off the sprue, then the parts don't fit because youv'e already painted them/fuselage parts don't fit together with cockpit in place, just a nightmare.

I've just had a small Airfix Auster Antartic delivered, so fingers crossed!

Yup. That about summed it up.
