  3. Looks like the Russians are using tires to protect their a/c from Ukrainian attacks: https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/russian-su-34-strike-fighter-seen-covered-in-tires Jari
  4. Here are the instructions on Scalemate: https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/0/9/1/1480091-12-instructions.pdf the unit markings have been crossed out. Jari
  5. The Trumpeter site has the shorter version of the decal sheet: http://www.trumpeter-china.com/index.php?g=home&m=product&a=show&id=3924&l=en while Hobby Search has the longer one: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10995499 maybe one was the early release, i guess we'll find out when we get one and open the box. Jari
  6. Nice look at both kits, however i have seen this decal sheet: shown on some model sites. Jari

  14. With more 3D printed interest of late, here is a video that maybe be of use: Jari
  15. Thanks Dana, i kind of figured it had something to do with covering things up. Reminds me when i was stationed in West Germany, they said we should not have any white on our ball caps lest a MiG flying at 500kts at 200ft would see it and attack the base, not seeing all the green buildings, the long concrete runway, taxiways and dispersals. Jari
  16. Why would they have tarps on the wings: https://artsandculture.google.com/asset/aircraft-carrier-hornet/TAHTP750hbdMAw no doubt they would be removed before flight. edit: here is another photo that have rudder covers on them to make them less colourful on the deck: https://artsandculture.google.com/asset/aircraft-carrier-hornet/9QHRucFM-lleig Jari
  17. Kev, hope the next print comes out within acceptable limits. If not perhaps try to print the outer wing sections as separate parts, that way it may make it easier for the machine to print the main centre wing section. Jari
  18. Here is an image that may be helpful: https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205123899 Jari
  19. A series of 8 videos showing a damaged Lancaster being recovered and being put back into service: https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/1060042869 Jari
  20. Craig here is a video of a Lancaster squadron at RAF Scampton in 1942 which might be of help: https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/1060021063 Jari
  21. Watch the rocket pod on the one lifting off: the nose of the pod angles up just after lift off. Why, i don't know. Jari
  22. How about 2 of them in flight: https://www.militaryfactory.com/aircraft/imgs/lrg/sikorsky-ch54-skycrane_9.jpg Jari
  23. Check here: https://www.416th.com/missions/combat_missions.html select one of the missions and you'll get crew names, 4 for the glass nose and 3 for the G. Jari
