Videoaviation - USN Mk83/BLU-110 bombs

Recommended Posts

Can you make some without the coating? Been waiting "forever" for the plain original Mk.83s but seems only the ablative ones are being made.

 

Really the surface coating is very light, with some sanding maybe you can get a smooth surface, however I wouldn't have trouble making a slick version shortly.

Thanks good to hear the slicks are coming. I'll wait for those then, I'm not sure I could sand these coated ones consistently smooth since I'm looking for six of them.

Hi Maurizio, Vietnam Mk.83s (green) had yellow or black decals? I need 9 pcs. but I'd like to color them green.

(I suppose black over dark green can't be seen).

ciao

Majority of the 83s were not coated in Vietnam. These originals would be ideal for USMC and also majority of USN even up to late in the war.

 

Can still see the 83s even in 1972 without the thermal coating here on 505 (with a coated 82, and other non-coated single stripe nosed examples in the background aircraft too show the coating was still sporadic at that time):
