TOPIC: Looking for some referances

Looking for some referances 08 Feb 2020 21:21 #1

I'm gathering together all the ref material I can find for a Type B Bus Pigeon Coop. I've found pictures online and someones build although they dont provide a lot of info. I've been told there is an article in an old Airfix magazine and maybe an old Military Modeling mag. So figured I'd see if anyone has any of these mags that they might scan the articles. No idea which edition though. Also if any one out there might have more pics of one from the War Museum in London I think, that they might share. I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
Oh and this is what I am converting my Miniart Type B Bus into.

Here are probably the links you found James, but one mentions the issue of Airfix magazine being from July 1969 and the chap in this forum thread had it scanned years ago...

Awesome thanks. The only one I had not seen is the Airfix page. That helps immeasurably. Not the next time I go to town I'll be looking for some fine mesh and some bass wood I think, and some more pigeons. See if I can find any more of the Miniart kits.
:bgrin

Having been a victim of random pigeon bombardment I love how those guys are ducking as the pigeons are flying the coup.

Thanks Dave. I found those also although some are the French equivalent. Appreciate it. I think I have as much as I can get without flying to London and trying to measure the one in the museum. I am going to try writing them and see if they have drawings and more info next.
