  1. Hi, when I worked on Tornados the seat didnt change from GR1 to GR4 althought at the end of my time on them we did trial a different harness on some aircraft. Not sure if that became standard.
  2. I was out there with 231 ocu ( Canberra training unit ) we were on the main base operating from the large main pan and single hanger. Passed through on detachments with Tonkas ( Tornado GR1 / 4 ) on our way to Ozz to fire off alarm missiles at Womerah.
  3. I was out there in the late 80s with 231 ocu I did see TR1 / U2 go and come back from somewhere. Was a kick to watch the car chase it down the runway and put the pogos in before it could taxi back.
  4. Thanks once again Patrick, very useful stuff there. Still having doubts about the rad. lol. On one of the above pics I think I can see a filter of some kind behind the door. Will keep looking for info untill I need to fit the thing. Once again thanks.
  5. Hi Patrick Thanks for the pics. think you are right , I will just have to follow the instructions. The pic of the later rocket rails, do you know if they are armour piercing heads?
  6. Sorry if this is in the wrong forum but here goes. Im in the process of building my Typhoon in the makings 175 Sqn SW399. The problem I have is witch mod of radiator did it use? The decal sheet shows a red and yellow paint scheme on the front grill ( part D16 ) but should this also be used with part D 17 ( think this is a filter of some kind ) It just seems odd having part D 16 just hanging there not doing a lot. I have looked through lots of pics and seen all kinds of radiator mods on the Typhoon but not one of this aircraft, Can anybody help? Oh and while Im on a roll, Anybody seen any
  7. Moved the wings back on my F6 hides the error very well. Think i will do the same again if I ever do another.
  8. Wish that was me building her (simmo) lol.
  9. Got hold of some Quick Shine Floor Finish from Lakeland. Works brill, A bit odd that it starts cloudy but dries clear. Thanks for the tip.
  10. Thanks for the pointers, Will start looking
  11. Hi Just thought I would dip the clear parts of my 1/24 Typhoon to find the Johnson Klear seemed to have gone off! With no more about, What are you using as a replacement?
  12. V nice, cant wait to start mine now!
  13. Same here, Im not sure if Airfix are that bothered about the dimple, which is s shame. Not sure if I will bother with another E mail just to get another one with adimple.
  14. Had my replacement come today too, Still got big dimple in it and moulded a little bit poorer.
  15. But not answering there fone or my E mails!
  16. Yep. still waiting for stuff ordered in December.
  17. I was in Belize in the 80s and a couple of crop dusters turned up with an unmarked Lear jet sprouting many strange things. The Dusters wasnt armed but had several bits of armour plate on sides and underneath and as the pilots went to there aircraft they were carring extra plates for the seats. Think they where sent by the large country near by for drug control.
  18. Hi Ewin. Rigging was easy if the instructions are followed. I thought i knew better and made some bits harder than they should have been.
  19. Thanks, I am well pleased with the results, I had big ideas origanally of doing some of it covered but that soon got kicked into touch when I found out how hard that would be. Somebody out there will be able to make a real gem out of this kit, just wish I could get some good shots of it.
