  1. I am looking at an FuG-16ZY transceiver set here in my office, and it is that same color. Pretty sure variations prevail on aged pieces.
  2. The F-8 at NASM has an alodined looking bare metal in the aft section interior but this may have been a subcontractor not F-W proper.
  3. Talented modeler, gifted photgrapher...thank you!
  4. Peter, Spinner looks darker than the blades to me, seems like its anyone's guess. Could go with black green blades and black spinner.
  5. When those Classic Publications went out of print they became very valuable, and highly sought after references... your jaw wikl indeed drop when you see the V-18 pages. Good job tgere Wacky!
  6. Peter, the Smith and Creek Fw 190 vol. 1 (Classic Pub.) has some extremely high definition photos of the V-18, which do confirm clearly your interpretation of the chin scoop, my guess is oil cooler heat exchanger.
  7. NMUSAF was particularly inaccurate in their older "restorations." Not a good source. If you look at pics in various cockpit publications, the have indiscrimiately sprayed interiors (eveything) with green chromate color. More recent work there may be better.
  8. This is exactly what I enjoy sbout this community. Thanks you all!
  9. Wow... I think you got the best of that PE set... magnificent!
  10. So, there you have it! Appreciate that correction. I guess I should order the book ...
  11. The Harvard was a Canadian Car and Foundry license built T-6, so yes, they all originated from Canada. I believe these versions migrated to many countries in the late 50s and early 60s. I do not have a copy of Dan's book, but I would be willing to bet he covers how CCF Harvards were exported. The Harvards were different in many ways, including lighter wings, which made them a favorite in custom built 230+ mph T-6 racers.
  12. The right side console breaker switches of the D-13, however, are similar, if not the same as the TA 152, and different from the D-9.
  13. Use the supplied panel from photo etch, plenty of ref available on TA cockpit images online. NASM airplane is simply missing the panel.
  14. Now we see a really excellent rendition of Lou IV. No sky blue. Thank you!
