  1. Probably. The top intakes, missing in the kit, are also missing on the box art (there are period photographs which clearly show them present).
  2. Film footage of Red Pelicans on YouTube shows at least one of the T4s had a black instrument panel.
  3. The Red Pelicans flew at least once in formation with the Yellowjacks, so the two will look good together.
  4. Didn't the Red Pelicans operate T4's ?
  5. According to Flight magazine, 15 June 1961 (p.836) Sobac was a "scheme under which paint manufacturers joined a pool for the supply of aircraft finishes manufactured by standard formulae". It doesn't explain the derivation of the name, but the acronym explanation sounds right.
  6. If you use Google Earth to find "The Glebe, Moffat" you can then use Street View and the "Spitfire" is easily seen.
  7. No they didn't, but they did get rid of fences, which was the root cause of the deaths at Hillsborough. In a similar way they have tried to remove what they regard as the cause without taking away the event altogether,
  8. I picked one up in Halifax yesterday, the shop had several.
  9. If you look on the photo at high magnification you can just see a fine line on the grass in line with the rear mast, and just in front of the mast is a dot that looks like the insulator you can see in the drawings. I think the wire is there, it's just so fine that you can't easily see it.
