  1. Xtradecal Sheet No 72-066 Harrier Gr9 41 ( R ) Sqn

    Hi Chris Thank you for the reply sorry I forgot to say the red should be I think cherry red BS381C.538. Kind Regards Craig
  2. Hi There I am at present building a RAF Harrier Gr9 in 1/72 and it was to be a 41 ( R ) sqn machine ZG508 but the decals of the Xtradecal sheet No 72-066 for this aircraft are the wrong colour in fact the red for all the 41( R ) Sqn are very far to dark.I was wondering if anyone else had this sheet and had the same problem or was it altered by Xtradecal. Might be that I have to get another sheet that is right. Kind Regards Craig

  4. Danish F-100 questions

    A classic jet the F-100 and i must get round to building one myself i saw the RDAF ones often as they visited RAF Binbrook the former Lightning airfield on either DACT or i think a squadron exchange (ESK 727 or 730 ) in the 80s. I think a pair i will build a single seater and two seater of the RDAF will bring back some memories. Regards. Craig

  11. Hi There I recently came across a picture of a 43 sqn Phantom FG-1 taken in April 1976 at its home base of RAF Leuchars,it had no wing tanks fitted just the sidewinder rails and strangely a centreline suu-23 gun pod,would any phantom experts know if this was a normal fit at this time and was air to air gunnery carried out of the Scottish coast I cannot seem to find any other pictures of this fit taken in the uk. Kind Regards Craig
