  1. Test shot of the 2000C... https://www.facebook.com/groups/369828906819827/permalink/654015201734528/
  2. Hi Maybe the photo you need for the intake. It shows a Mirage IIIS (Swiss), derived from the IIIE. The front landing gear is specific but the rest should be the same. I took it exactly at the right angle. Cheers
  3. Thank you Chek! I'm afraid I'll have to choose another delivery as I started this build months ago and I'm almost at the painting stage. I've already put great efforts into this kit so I'm not going to convert the wing type. There are many other attractive schemes, I'm not too worried. Cheers
  4. Hi Chek, thank you for this picture! I am, however, rather interested in the following scheme. Maybe only case XX planes wore it...
  5. Hi Guys, I'm looking for a picture of any F-102 from the Pennsylvania ANG with a serial number lower than 56-1317 (Case X wing). According to this website: http://www.forgottenjets.warbirdsresourcegroup.org/F-102A.html, this includes the following planes: F-102A-60-CO s/n 56-1136 F-102A-65-CO s/n 56-1202 F-102A-70-CO s/n 56-1249 F-102A-70-CO s/n 56-1274 F-102A-75-CO s/n 56-1309 Thank you!
  6. Hi, That's a beautiful 172! A very nice paint job in particular! I used to fly the one on the photo, which was equipped with a Thielert (Diesel) engine. Nice memories!
  7. Hi, Yes, the first photo shows the correct magnetos for Gabreski's D25. I built it few years ago: https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/53495-132-hasegawa-p-47d-in-gabreskis-markings/ Cheers
  8. A couple of 190 and a K4. Colors legend is not from me. Note the low 81/82 contrast.
  9. Actually, there are at least 3 different propellers that can accommodate this spinner. See there: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234980181-hawker-hurricane-propellers-and-spinners-a-modellers-guide/
  10. Hi Guys, I'm looking for photos of Hurricane Mk IIc JX-W Z3899 (1st squadron, Tangmere). I could only find the below image, which is a screenshot of a movie. Nothing else in my references. I'm more specifically interested in a photo of this machine engine off as I'd like to identify the propeller type. This is for Trumpeter 1/24 kit, a WIP will follow. Many thanks for your help!
  11. Hi Alain, The missile is indeed the same but was in use before the Mirage improvement plan (addition of plans canard, etc., from 1988 onward). Aim-9P's are still in use on the F-5E, this is probably the reason why they are not displayed in a museum. But all of this is just a detail of course! Cheers.
  12. Hi Alain, Congrats for this IIIS! This is the first one I see that is converted from the not so easy Italeri kit and you achieved an excellent result. Small remark, this Mirage would carry AIM-9P rather than the older AIM-9B model. Cheers Tristan
  13. Hello, My understanding after having gone through many forum discussions and books is that what is usually referenced as the "dark green rlm83" is only a greener variation of rlm81. Official colors combinations were 76/74/75, replaced with 76/81/82 to better hide the planes on the ground later in the war. Rlm 76/75/82 and 76/71/81 or 76/70/82 were also accepted to finish the old stock of 70, 71 and 75.
  14. A beautiful build of a gracious airplane. I saw a real one in the Technikmuseum in Berlin and was surprised by the size of this one. This is not a small bird!
