  1. 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.

  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Here is an image that may be helpful: https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205123899 Jari
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. How about 2 of them in flight: https://www.militaryfactory.com/aircraft/imgs/lrg/sikorsky-ch54-skycrane_9.jpg Jari
  9. 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
  10. Dave check here: https://www.416th.com/TypicalMission_Formation.html it says the A-20 had 2 gunners on missions, at least the glass nosed ones did. Jari
  11. Here is a display option: Jari
  12. Here is the Trumpeter offering: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10995499 Jari
  13. Here is a F-8 that shows some underside details, also note just the lower launcher with a dual Zuni pod is installed: Jari
  14. Chris here are a couple of videos of F-8s of the squadron you are doing: https://www.criticalpast.com/video/65675024123_F8-Crusader_pilot-sits-in-cockpit_crewman-gives-signals_planes-taxis-on-runway https://www.criticalpast.com/video/65675024125_F8-Crusader_ground-crewmen-wear-headset_ordnance-men-loading-bombs_plane-in-parking-area they should give you an idea how dirty they got. Jari
  15. In case you want to try some other winged missiles, and their launchers: https://www.afmc.af.mil/Portals/13/Winged Missiles-Sm.pdf Jari
  16. Dan a few more pics here, small but might be of use: https://www.angelfire.com/realm3/roynagl/regulus.htm Jari
  17. I used Bing image search, it sometimes has other pictures than what Google comes up with. I found this with Bing as well: Jari
  18. Here is one on the trailer: Jari
  19. Tom if you have a plan to add some Small Bomb Containers to the bomb load, PM me i have a PDF on the SBC that should give you enough details to scratchbuild some. Jari
  20. Some good detailed drawings and dimensions of Vietnam era missiles: https://www.docdroid.com/mwNQLDn/naval-air-launched-guided-missiles-pdf missing is the Walleye but the rest are great. Jari
  21. Variations of the ALQ-87: https://www.docdroid.com/2v65t2D/general-electric-an-alq-87-configurations-pdf Jari
  22. Here is a nice video comparing a FDM printer and a resin one: of course the resin prints have better quality but for simple objects that don't have much detail in the first place perhaps a filament printer will do. One day i hope i'll get a 3D printer, a buddy of mine printed off a whole bunch of resin Mk-82 Snakeyes, LAU-10s and other assorted things in 1/32 scale for me to hang from my kits. Jari
  23. Here is some info on bomb loads that may be of use: http://lancasterbombersinfo.ipage.com/Data/Manuals/Stirling/AP1660C-and-D/Section_4/4.html pg 45 shows the station locations. Also in the file there is details on the water ballast containers that were carried at times on the bomb carriers. Plus fuel tanks that were carried in the wing cells, starting on pg 52. Jari
  24. Pylons, tanks and launchers are interchangeable meaning they wouldn't stay on the same aircraft at all times, i think the priority is to paint the planes first and when they get around to it, the rest of the things that hang from it. However some parts seem to be getting a new coat of paint, note the drop tank: Jari
