Typical of recent Classic Airframes kits, detail in important areas such as the cockpit and engines is quite thorough, and surface detail is crisply recessed. I spent about 90 minutes removing the plastic parts from their sprues, cleaning up the remaining sprue attachments and lightly sanding the mating surfaces of the main parts.
The cylinders plugged precisely into the engine core, with only minimal trimming required where a few cylinders fouled with plumbing cast in place.
The remaining resin parts were quickly relieved of their casting blocks with a razor saw and, after some additional cleanup with a sanding stick, were also ready to use.
In fact, test fitting these partially completed assemblies proved that they were too wide, as the fuselage halves would not fit together when they were tacked in place.
The bulkheads and floors were trimmed and sanded until they were narrow enough to fit without fouling. The kit allows the early Mk.I to be built with the open dorsal gun position, but this option does require some surgery. With the interior floors and bulkheads trimmed and thinned, all the cockpit components were painted US Interior Green using Gunze paints. I glued a rectangle of plastic to the mating surface of the dorsal gun insert to reinforce the join after the fuselage halves were joined. This helps ensure the best possible alignment, and a gap-free finish between major components. I therefore broke off the horizontal stabilisers and cut a wedge out of the mating surfaces. Over the past thirty years, Baltimore has expanded its rail system steadily, opening its Metro Subway in 1983, its light rail lines in 1992, and adding extensions to the corridors in 1994 and 1997. But in a recent report, the Central Maryland Transportation Alliance described its priorities for transit-oriented investment in the Baltimore region and argued that the state should advance a new north-south Yellow Line connecting Lutherville and Columbia. The northern section of the Yellow Line, connecting Camden Yards to Lutherville via Charles Center, Johns Hopkins, and Towson, seems like a reasonable investment, putting the latter city 18 minutes away from the Inner Harbor. The southern portion of the Yellow Line, on the other hand, seems to be another example of the sprawl-inducing transit in which Maryland specializes. On the other hand, the extension of the Metro Subway, dubbed the Green Line, would reach up into some of Baltimore’s densest, most transit-deprived, and poorest neighborhoods before heading to White Marsh, which has a growing suburban downtown also centered on a mall.
Baltimore, then, has a fundamental problem: should it invest more money in a more productive project, even if it gets fewer route miles out of each buck? Another question that may be worth evaluating: does race and class have a role to play in the CMTA’s route selection?
Rather than focus on choosing to complete either the full Yellow Line or the full Green Line, seemingly the only option offered by the CMTA, Baltimore should refocus on the sections of those projects most likely to be successful. This is one of the most nuanced and accurate views of Baltimore transit by an outsider I’ve ever read.
I agree about the Green Line extension over the suburban Yellow Line extension to Columbia, but the Yellow Line to Towson via Johns Hopkins and Charles Street corridor I think should be the priority. No, Baltimore is actually very similar to Philadelphia: a small gentrified downtown plus high-class university, surrounded by abject poverty.
Regarding the proposed map — the Blue Line is the existing light rail route, with the exception of the detour from Camden Yards through to Penn Station (which would theoretically be shared with the new Yellow Line).
No, in fact the basic idea, whether it makes sense or not, is to have both alignments running in parallel. The alignment for Yellow north of Camden Yards is what Baltimore should have built as its LRT line in the first place. As a staffer for the CMTA, I feel compelled to respond to your entry, “Baltimore to Advance Yellow Line Project Ahead of Metro Extension.” While I appreciate your interest in our report, I’m worried that you may have arrived at your points from reading the article written about the report instead of reading the report. Yonah, you imply near the end of your entry that the CMTA support could be racially motivated – that we seek to expand transit to predominately white areas as opposed to poor and black communities.
Finally, when we talk of expanding Baltimore’s transit system we do not wish to have growth come at the expense of the existing system. I first witnessed that debacle unfolding as a third grader when MTA officials presented their marketing plan to local school children. Then my classmates and I reflected on the fact that some homes to be torn down were our own. Even as a young adult I remember asking adults, when would the subway line begin construction.


Years have passed and I live in California now, but every time I visit Baltimore, I muse about the missed opportunity that would have strengthened our West Baltimore community, while positively transforming land use patterns in Baltimore. Instead of tearing down homes for an unfinished freeway, two subway lines (instead of one) could have intersected downtown and opened in 1983. Instead of moving 60,000 Metrorail, 35,000 Light Rail and 32,000 MARC patrons for 130,000 daily transit patrons today, Baltimore Metrorail and MARC could easily have be 300,000 daily patrons transforming business and residential location decisions for a more vital Baltimore.
Though the MTA can never remedy that debacle, I am happy to see that the Red Line will fulfill finally East-West rail transit route promised to my community and the community of East-Southeast Baltimore. My dose of historical reality also chastens the MTA’s rationale of prioritizing a new low density Southern Yellow Line extension to Columbia before the old high-density Northeastern Green Line extension to Morgan State University. Yes it will take longer and be more expensive to complete, but Green Line extension will transport far more patrons downtown and throughout the transit system.
Given Columbia has been a national model of racial integration and business opportunity, I’m pleased that racism need not be a prevailing factor in current Light Rail expansion decisions.

One boxing contained markings for British service, while the other kit offered decals for Italian, Turkish, Greek and Free French aircraft.
Parts are included to depict either a Baltimore Mk.I with the open dorsal gunner's position, or one of the later marks fitted with the Martin turret. Being a limited-run kit, the main parts do not have locating tabs or pins, so extra care must be taken when aligning parts. It is also perhaps the single most important task in construction, as careful preparation will make for a speedier and less stressful build.
The quality of the plastic is very good - slightly soft so it is easy to work with, a satin texture and very finely recessed panel lines. I decided to tackle these as soon as I had removed the cylinders from their casting blocks.
I decided to glue together the main interior structural components but left off the delicate details (such as seats, control columns and instrument panel) until I was sure that the whole sub-assemblies would fit cleanly between the fuselage halves. I have always liked this version though, so I set about cutting a section from each fuselage side. These are always well detailed, but they can sometimes lead to complications with fit - the resin needing to be thinned considerably to permit wing halves to join cleanly. The back wheel well wall and both sidewalls are formed from a single length of straight plastic with two bevelled grooves. It is a great shame that the beautifully detailed radio operator's chair is completely hidden inside the dark recesses of the fuselage, as it is a wonderful example of the resin caster's art. I applied a blob of Micro Krystal Kleer to the window as a mask in preparation for painting. I reinforced this join with a couple of strips of styrene at the wing root - one at the top join and one near the bottom trailing edge. The fit was really very good in this area with just a hint of filler required at the leading and trailing edges.
I like Milliput because it is slow setting, so it remains workable on the model for 15 minutes or more, and it is structural, so it will fill large gaps. Its route would partially share the existing Blue Line light rail alignment and add new sections of line in Baltimore and in the suburbs. The Green Line, they argue, would provide fewer opportunities for redeveloping existing cities. Should the city and state, which have advanced plans for the Metro extension, change their course? It would provide better transit to the relatively dense areas along Charles Street, especially the redeveloping zones in Charles Village.
Or, should it decide to spend money on light rail, which will attract fewer passengers and provide inferior service, but cost a whole lot less?
While the Yellow Line’s route would provide service to predominately white and relatively higher-income neighborhoods, the Green Line would serve poor and black communities that have suffered from disinvestment over the years. Build the Yellow Line from Camden Yards north to Lutherville but not west from BWI Airport to Columbia. Building out this rail transit system is key as well as dramatically improving the MTA bus system which I found to be of poor quality when I rode it last year. Thousands of homes in 16 linear blocks between Mulberry and Franklin Streets where torn down for the unfinished I-70 Freeway and a ghost subway line to run down the middle of it. Then the MTA folks quickly shifted to an exercise that asked us to draw shops we would like to see at our subway station. Perhaps you are aware that MTA planning imbeciles failed to secure Rights of Way through Western Cemetery and hence, could not connect the infamous I-70 Freeway segment to the current I-70 Freeway endpoint at I-695 beltway. There were rumors of start dates, but each time Maryland DOT funds went to freeway construction. Our community fumed but again, but with so much of decimated by Black middle class fleeing to the same suburbs, there were no major protests on behalf of inner city West Baltimore. If the MTA and Maryland DOT had simply weighed input from the rich white folks and listened to middleclass Black folks, Baltimore City would be in much better shape.
Those 2 lines could have been extended to the near suburbs and the 3rd subway line completed by 2010. Today transit plans would more appropriately be extending Metrorail and MARC lines to the deep suburbs of Hunt Valley, White Marsh, Owings Mills, Glen Burnie and Columbia to boost those numbers past 400,000.


After the Red Line, prioritizing the northern Yellow Line from Towson down Charles Street to downtown Baltimore is a also smart move that fullfills an old promise. The Southern Yellow Line extension with 11 stops after BWI Station has the earmarks of another underperforming Hunt Valley line (now colored Blue on the MTA map). If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. The cylinders had a little flash on them, so I used a stiff toothbrush to remove these whisper-like wafers of waste. I managed to cut through the bottom of the bomb aimer's seat with the razor saw (I do that far too often), but I repaired the hole with super glue. The plastic is bent along the grooves and glued to the circular front of the engine firewall before the entire assembly is attached to the inside surface of the upper wing.
When I noticed this, I checked references which seemed to confirm that the elevator hinge line should be at 90 degress to the fuselage centreline.
The group, a coalition of business and non-profit leaders in the area, still argues for the eventual completion of the Green Line, which has been on transit plans since 1966. The Yellow Line proposal would give commuters an astonishingly long 1h10 commute between Columbia and downtown Baltimore. Build the Green Line from the existing terminus of the Metro Subway at Johns Hopkins Hospital to Morgan State University and perhaps White Marsh, but no further. Seems like all expanding rail transit systems across the country (and Canada) have to do this to get anything built. They bragged about thousands of cars being able to quickly travel the route between downtown and the western suburbs of Catonsville & Woodlawn. Nevertheless, we all gloomily asked ourselves, why do they want to tear down our homes for people who travel between downtown and the suburbs without stopping?
Living in the 500 block of Brice Street, I could look down my street at the Freeway’s concrete wall that was never landscaped as promised.
Turns out powerful rich White folk would not let their ancestors be exhumed to enable freeway construction through the cemetery. When the next traunches of transit funding came around, horrible stark answers were printed in the local newspaper.
It may even be a make-good for the ill-concieved, under-performing throw-in LRT currently traversing low-density Jones Falls Expressway, while bypassing Towson. So I stand with my fellow citizens of Northeastern Baltimore who demand that the Green line continue its promised course 45 years ago before this newfangled R3=E3 marketing puffery calling for a southern Yellow Line extension. For years, an extension of the Green Line Metro northeast to Morgan State University and Martin State Airport was assumed to be the next step.
On the other hand, the most productive (southern) portions of this route are planned to be covered by the planned Charles Street Trolley which would be cheaper to build, though slower for users. The suburbs through which the train would travel may well grow into more transit-friendly communities, but they are likely to retain their auto dependencies. A quick review of the route indicates far more potential for infill projects along this line and what would likely be higher ridership. Is there no advantage in improving the transportation options of people already dependent on trains and buses? These projects have the most potential for high ridership and would spur the most infill development of those suggested for the city as a whole.
I was just in Vancouver BC and even being outside the US they have to do this very thing… build the suburban Evergreen Line because they built the mostly urban Canada Line. Recognizing that they did not impress us, MTA officials next pointed out that the freeway would be built with enough median space for the subway line illustrated on the Baltimore Metrorail Subway map. Working in a nearby barbershop, I heard a handful of adults complaining about the freeway route and home destruction. In effect, that debacle said to our community, dead rich White folks were more valuable than alive middle class Black folks.
Given a much higher transit mode-share, Baltimore’s transit culture would have demanded more frequent MARC commuter train service traveling East-Southwest on the map as well. One significant problem: the Metro Subway, being heavy rail, would require a fully separated right-of-way either underground or elevated above the street. Meanwhile the very crucial urban and underground Millenium Line extension down Broadway to UBC will have to wait. You are correct in pointing out that the CMTA recommends prioritizing the Yellow line as the next link in the Baltimore Regional Rail Plan to be built after the Red Line. The existing transit system of Baltimore can be improved, but the CMTA believes that improvement and expansion need not come at the sake of the other. But there was no mass demonstration, in large part because construction plans printed in the newspaper included room for the subway line and the 1st subway line up Pennsylvania Avenue began construction. So Yonah has a strong point about class and racism having a sordid history in Baltimoretransportation planning. Thus our community was told we believed would get the subway just after the freeway was built.
Vernon, BWI Business Park, Hanover, Columbia Gateway and Columbia Town Center, would bring more jobs in clusters within reach of the system than any other proposed line. We are still committed to building the Green line and the build out of our entire transit system; however the Yellow Line’s ability to connect people to jobs, particularly in this the Great Recession, shows that it’s construction should be a priority.
