  3. Blast walls would be easy to make, and paint, the matting on the other hand: from here: https://imodeler.com/2018/10/f-4c-cam-ranh-bay-s-vietnam/ Jari
  4. Another example of matting was the AM-2 which is still in use today: Back in SEA: https://samenews.org/tme-looks-back-vietnam-aluminum-matting-runways-in-vietnam/ https://www.seabee71.com/stories/keeping-the-sats-runway-open.html looks easier to scratchbuild, full scale 12' X 2' X 1.5" thick. Jari
  5. Here are a couple of examples of matting used in Vietnam: Jari

  14. A B-24 hit the tail of another B-24 on a mission: 3 of the crew bailed out while the rest stayed with the aircraft and they made it back safely, with extra parts. The other B-24, 42-52454 SOUTHERN GAL went down and only 2 of the crew got out. Jari
