  1. Look here: http://apachehelicopter.tpub.com/TM-1-1520-238-T-6/css/TM-1-1520-238-T-6_036.htm Jari
  2. Here they are: http://manuals.hobbico.com/rmx/85-6459.pdf Jari
  3. We had the cradles on ours as well, to protect the skin as you mentioned, you had to line them up with the rubber pads on the bottom so it fit right. I wasn't a dumpie so they may have done that as well for the ones in storage, for alerts we used the ready use ones although all we did was put them up and take them down. The locals probably wouldn't appreciate us flying with them for some reason. Jari
  4. I don't know about the Buccaneer but i loaded many live BL755s on the CF-104 and CF-18 in Germany during alerts and there were 3, sometimes 4, days a month the alerts happened. They just came on a trailer with a tarp over them. Jari
  5. If you go to the Revell site link mentioned above and click on it, you can get the instructions for it. Jari
  6. Here is one with the twin beam rack normally seen on a Jag, perhaps that is how they loaded them? Jari
  7. Here are a few more, a S-3B getting a load of ADM-141 TALDs which will be used as aerial targets for missile shoots: another one with a Maverick, and the buddy refueling pod: SLAM-ER: Jari
  8. Here is one from the 2003 cruise with a pair of Mk-20 Rockeyes on one side and the Buddy refueling pod on the other: http://www.navysite.de/cruisebooks/cvn70-03/487.htm Jari
  9. Here is one from the above site: Jari
  10. Not quite 1/48 but a start: Jari
  11. Here are some A-4Cs in June 1967, as you can see they varied as well with different squadrons on the same carrier. Just a bit of worn red on the lower main gear door on this one: http://www.gstatic.com/hostedimg/5effeffe7c807d0e_large just the edge on this door: http://www.gstatic.com/hostedimg/6531791151160360_large full red on main gear door: http://www.gstatic.com/hostedimg/7c9e326db3a86dc8_large none on this one: http://www.gstatic.com/hostedimg/475879808dfb121c_large looks like no red on the nose gear door: http://www.gstatic.com/hostedimg/c0f865fee46f6875_large red on these: http://www.gstatic.com/hostedimg/c1370ed2be33baf2_large Jari
  12. Yes Larry one can always hope, especially since Kitty Hawk tends to include a plethora of things to hang under the wings in their kits. Jari
  13. This pic shows at least 9 bombs falling: all from the aft part of the bomb bay. Most likely there were 10 so best guess five per side. This video shows a Mk-7 being loaded into a B-45 bomb bay: a bit dark but some details can be seen. Finally there is this drawing that shows the airframe: http://postimg.org/image/s69sqc27n/ Jari
  14. Larry, i saw this at Cybermodeler: https://www.cybermodeler.com/special/kits/kit_acft_scale.shtml Kitty Hawk has a 1/32 RF-84F planned, maybe they have access to the pod and will include it? Jari
  15. Of course just because there are no photos doesn't mean they didn't carry the extra pylons but if not needed they most likely didn't put them on. But on a night photo mission they probably had tanks on the inner pylons and the photo flash pods on the outers or as in case of one of the pics below, a luggage pod. https://abpic.co.uk/pictures/view/1461422 https://abpic.co.uk/pictures/view/1030640 Jari
