    Trumpeter 1/32 RNZAF A-4K "Kahu Upgrade"

    Thought this may be of interest - a pic of the intakes from inside the engine bay of a RNZAF A-4K. https://www.facebook.com/AirForceMuseumofNewZealand/photos/a.89637586278/10156084036661279/?type=3
  2. A couple of years back there was a Tamiya F4U-1 (unsure of scale) finished as though it was in the factory, on some sort of dolly, with the fuselage either primed or natural metal. With the detail on Airfix’s new 1/24 Hellcat, I’d love to replicate that kind of setup. Just need to find the Grumman factory pics now.
  3. Always liked the PB4Y-2 - could’ve been Matchbox’s evocative rendition of “Red Wing” that baited the hook. Nice work so far, enjoying watching how you tackle the Privateer’s more distictive features.

    I prefer it. I’m exclusively 1/16 these days.

    Thanks Tom. I used Tamiya’s Sand Texture material. Goes on well & dries quickly.

    Well, Peter Jackson did a complete laser scan of G for George, the Lancaster at the Australian War Memorial, ages ago for the proposed remake of “Dambusters”. So, at least the CAD is based on an accurate basis.

  11. According to this pocket manual, carrying the GAU-12 and the “TPOD” at the same time on Stations 4A and 4B is doable. No mention of the pylon, though. https://www.dropbox.com/s/rwxk88479v98thh/AV8BNA Pocket Guide.pdf?dl=0
  12. Yep, got it that you’re mounting an EO pod (looks way cooler, btw). I meant that the article was discussing the pylon in relation to carrying the ECM pod.
  13. My understanding is that the pylon is common to both strakes & gunpods. Dave Roof has an article about the Harrier that mentioned this, but in relation to carrying a (somewhat) unique ECM pod (AN/ALQ-184 rings a bell).
