Quang, thanks for the photos. Interesting to see red finally, unfortunately I missed seeing any white outlines.
 
Also really interesting to see 38371 wearing a completely different mouth (and no bolt on the tail and different light colored antenna cap). I've not seen that version of it before.  The glare shield also doesn'tgo all the way to the nose.
 
Here's one pic of the sharp curved teeth version of 38371 the sheet has:

After studying your reference pics, it would appear that 38371 wore at least two different sharkmouths during its lifetime. Interesting!

 

Here's an enlargement of the lighting bolt. The white shadow is clearly apparent. Also note the two distinct reds on the VNAF insignia.

T-28's mean a lot to me. They (and AD-6 Skyraiders) populated my childhood dreams. I'd have to get one of the Kitty Hawk beauties but can't decide which version. Maybe I'd wait until the T-28C is released.

 

Most sincerely,

Quang

As it seems always the case, after sheets are sent to print better detail photos comes along. I can ask but it may be too late to add the white. I only used one color red though for the sheet (but other VNAF marked aircraft have more uniform color, that photo you have the red almost looks more orange in a way).

Those Soc Trang T-28s are by far the most "conjectural" on the sheet as far as details but I wanted to add them since they're pretty unique.

That colored bolt is also slightly different in shape to others, especially the bottom section.

It's the Murphy's law in modelling.  :rolleyes:

Having said that, you have done great justice to these unusual and exotic subjects.  :thumbsup:

 

All the best

Indeed, you're going to be making, hopefully, a great many people very happy with this sheet - it's not often I pre-order at Hannants, but I will with this beauty!

It wasn't. I got confirmation back from microscale that they were able to take the revised bolts I sent with the white trim.

In the Army, we called them XM-157 I think LAU-19 for everyone else. I'll have to dig in my junk pile to verify .
