  2. Hi, She is beautiful John ! Great for you ! Ta 152 H is one of my favorite bird of all time By the way, I think she has one more stencil on the hatch aft of supercharger intake. I heard it is a black out line and S3 letter in it for some kind of engine primer stencil. Please see the pics. I hope I'm not confusing you because I don't have any farther information about this stencil. I'm sorry Hoping for someone can tell what it is. (Sorry about my english too) Regards, Matsu
  3. BTW Drop tank collected by US Gis ends up under the wing of P-47 (Very interesting !!) Regards, Matsu.
  4. Hi, I'm kind of confused here . This picture show US Gis lording abandoned Luftwaffe drop tanks and I can see most of them have pointy tail and there is no drain. And This F-2 (F-4) trop have a drop tank with air pressure intake on nose Regards, Matsu.
