PATHFINDER STORY Problems of Night Bombing : Application of Radar Aids : Conception and Development of Target'M.arking Technique : Concentration of Attack By Wing Commander MAURICE A. SMITH, D.F.C. THREE simple analogies will serve to illustrate the progress of night bombing during the World War : (i) If a shot gun is fired at a covey of birds the chance of hitting one is small and the damage slight; (ii) If a shot gun is aimed at a single bird, within normal range, it maims or perhaps mortally wounds; (iii) If a rifle is correctly aimed at the heart of a bird or beast, anywhere within range, the power of the gun, concentrated in the single bullet, kills. R.A.F. night bombing passed through three such stages. The earliest efforts often amounted to little more than a sprinkling of bombs over a comparatively wide area of enemy territory. Later, crews were able to .find the approximate locality of a target, and to place a small weight of bombs upon it; while later still, it became possible to identify *he very heart of the target, and to wipe it out by dropping a great and concentrated weight of explosives and incendiaries accurately upon it. IN this description of the work of Pathfinder Force, the methods of marking., a target and of controlling forces of night bombers are impersonally discussed. The P.F.F. contribution towards the success of Bomber Command, and the enormous increase in striking power made possible by accurate target marking at night is explained. A discussion of the work of the first night-bomber crews is not strictly within the scope of this story, but it should be recorded that although the results were negligible by comparison with the huge raids which followed later, no job has ever called for more courage, endurance or skill. A handful of airmen, from a country cornered and fighting almost without weapons to break an attempted stranglehold, penetrated the organised defences of a powerful, fullyarmed and confident enemy. By comparison with recent knowledge and achievement, navigational practices in 1940-1 were elementary, aids were almost non-existent, aircraft were underpowered, of low performance and less reliability, adverse weather presented a far greater problem, and in fact, all forces seemed combined to confound the^

Now you are both getting to technical. remember the Kiss system.
1) a British company
2)Formed in 1931 by two men.
3) Made targets for the RAF during WW11
4)Were the worlds first in this method of production
5) they also make plane recodnition models

This question has me really baffled will try the following answer....

I’d guess that many people don’t know that the British 4-pound “Type F” incendiary bomb, for use in cluster weapons of the type described in Alex’s post, was the model for the first U.S. biological bomb, the MK I (for use in the MK33 cluster munition): ??

During the Second World War Lines Bros. Ltd. stopped making toys and concentrated all their efforts on production to help the allied war effort. Approximately 7,000 people were employed to make a range of military hardware, including 14,000,000 magazines for Hurricane and Spitfire aircraft, as well as shell cases, land mine cases and special optical apparatus to help troops see in the dark. Walter Lines also re-designed the Mk. III Sten Gun, making the Mk IV lighter and reducing the amount of material required for its production

You have the Marketing company of Lines Bro,s Now who was the other partnership with.???
Fill in the missing blanks.
Founded in 1931 by Charles Wilmot and Joe Mansour, International Model Aircraft Ltd. (IMA) originally used the xxxx brand name (said to stand for "Flies Right Off the Ground") on the Interceptor Mk.4 semi-scale rubber-band powered flying model, launched the following year. Also in 1932, a marketing partnership with the toy company Lines Bros Ltd. was formed and other XXXX brand flying models followed. In 1936, a range of 1:72 scale aircraft models in kit or pre-built form, moulded in cellulose acetate, was launched under the XXXX XXXXXXX name (alluding to the non-flying nature of these models). These were the world's first plastic model construction kits. An early release was the No.21P Empire Flying Boat, issued in 1938.

During the Second World War, the company produced flying models for target purposes and 1:72 scale aircraft recognition models. The XXXXX range was dropped in 1949 but a new range of XXXX polystyrene kits was introduced in 1955. A wide variety of aircraft, ship and car subjects in various scales were issued during the 1950s and 60s, 1:72 scale being standardised on from 1963 onwards for aircraft models.
