  1. FWIW, there is an article on night fighter aces in Britain at War, Issue 74, June 2013, that says Harrington's Mosquito Mk.XXX was RA-D MM767. The article is written by a fellow named Andrew Thomas. The photo is sort of inconclusive, but the "O" does look similar to the "Q" of RA-Q MM788.
  2. Very nice. Curious as regards the fitment of the Aires wheel wells.
  3. Brad, I don't have the kit, but the I-16 apparently had a vertical tail which was adjustable while on the ground to offset torque. Perhaps what you are speaking about is a feature of this offset? I've seen this on other builds of the kit.
  4. Which boxing of the kit are these decals designed for, Jennings?
  5. Oh, I’m serious. I’d like to see it in 1/100, though.
  6. Very nice. If only Zvezda would give us a 707 then you could do any number of a gazillion schemes.
  7. There is a photo in Ginter's F-8 Crusader Part 2 of RF-8G 145646 of VFP-63 with eyeballs and EYES OF THE FLEET on the forward bulkhead of the wing center section. Pic taken 6-27-70 on the Bonnie Dick. Seen on other aircraft as well.
  8. I should also add that, while the EagleCals decals are gorgeous, they do not fit the model correctly. Whether anyone cares about such things is an individual choice. The WHOOOOOOOOO is too large a faunt to begin with. I used them so I know. I have the Montex set but haven’t rebuilt the model with them, but checking against extant photos of the aircraft (which are in the EagleCals set) they appear to be sized/proportioned correctly so that the stunning nose art will look proper. The wolf head in the EagleCals set is much nicer though. If you want details with images of the decals applied and notations, PM me. The decals in the Eduard boxing are printed by Cartograf, but I don’t know who did the artwork.
  9. EagleCals and Montex too.
  10. I stumbled across this nifty little trick on my iPad quite some time ago.
  11. They look like one of the styles of tip tank used by the F-80.

  13. After going through the photos it would also appear that R-5868 had early and late nose blisters, and that the latter was when it had paddle-blade props.
  14. Would love to have it but not at £18 shipping. Would like to see an e-copy option.
  15. I was in Dallas for 2 weeks in 2005 on a training course for a company I use to work for. I went to the museum specifically to see if I could get pictures of their F9F-2 Panther. It was quiet when I went so I kindly asked if they would let me behind the ropes to do a walkaround of the jet-they obliged. Got all around and underneath the Panther. The only thing I didn’t get pictures of was the cockpit.
