Default Whirlwind HCC Mk12 Queen's Flight

Just few pictures from my latest "on request" custom - Amercom 1/72 yellow SAR Whirlwind - repainted to represent HCC Mk12 Queen's Flight. Additional work - filling/sanding for better look, and few details added

You stole my thunder! This is exactly what I thought about doing...very nice! How did you make the extra windows in the cabin, as the Whirlwind HAR.10 doesn't have these? I'm very surprised Corgi haven't released their Whirlwind as this one.

As a collector of Royal models this is a superb model and a great job.

Adrian is right why don't Corgi make this?

Thank you for nice comments. Windows were cut with dremel tools, easy as metal is quite soft. Well, some patience for correct shape is essential
