  1. Tornado F3 Skyflash and Aim colours

    The two pics above show AIM-120 AMRAAMS and not Skyflash, however Skyflash were never White either always Lt Grey.
  2. French Navy helicopter blue

    Definitely two tone Grey, Gris Moyen and Gris Clair although French are notoriously difficult to match. However I would say you wouldn't be far off with FS35237 and 36320
  3. F-22 and F-16 HAVE GLASS V drop tank colours?

    There has been several F-16's flying with 36170 drop tanks. https://postimg.org/image/7wi67jatx/
  4. F-22 and F-16 HAVE GLASS V drop tank colours?

    The colour you're looking for for the F-16's is FS36170, but as you correctly state they don't have the Have Glass treatment. However it's more common to see normal FS36270 painted tanks on F-16's and the variation in Greys will give you a more interesting model to look at. For the F-22, I would say the tanks are 36118 as if I remember correctly they were developed for the F-15E as some sort of deployable tank( don't ask me what makes a deployable tank), during OIF/OEF.
  5. A-10 Engine Covers(steel beach)

    Don't take what I'm about to write as gospel as I don't have either the kit or cover in front of me. However looking at the Revell instructions on the internet, it looks like you have to remove the front portion of the intake at the first panel line where it starts to curve towards the intake face, then leave off the fan faces and the covers should then fit flush, for the exhaust leave parts 11 and 81 off and again the cover should fit flush.
  6. A-10 Engine Covers(steel beach)

    Aren't the Steel Beach covers exactly that , and not plugs? I've used several of Darren's sets and never had a problem with any of them, just a little clean up of edges and that's it.
  7. Mirage F.1CR 118-CY Fin Marking Colours?

    It'll be Aluminium, the same colour as the undersides.
  8. Are modern 'Remove before flight' tags really over 800 mm long?

    One's that I've came across would be at a guess and from memory approx 500mm/50cm long at most, I've also seen some short ones approx 250mm. RAF Tornado, Jaguar, Harrier etc etc.........
  9. Steel Beach Engine covers

    I would drop Sprue Brothers an email as they normally adjust the shipping costs at point of postage and will refund you the difference.
  10. Indian AF Script

    The English or Sanskrit inscriptions?
  11. Swedish Sidewinder nomenclature

    I think the E relates to it being a blind round? The only RB-27's I can find reference to much like yourself are the B and the and J.
  12. Spanish Navy AV-8B+ paint scheme

    Nearly, it's FS36231 over 36320. The radome is slightly darker than 36231 but no FS for it.
  13. I looked at my copy of "A Steep turn to the Stars"( history of aviation in the Moray Firth) last night and if the photographs are captioned correctly, the Mosquitos had lost the their stripes by Autumn 1944. On a side note some of the Beaufighters further up the coast at Dallachy still had them.
  14. 1:48 F-16 options

    The only Kinetic kit that had serious nose droop issues was the early F-16 NATO Viper kit 48002 and only the early batches, the problem was rectified although some people still aren't happy. I've built the Kinetic Blk52 kit and sitting next to the seemingly fantastic Tamiya Blk50 the nose droop is not noticeable with the back of the pitot being 1mm lower on the Kinetic version.
  15. B17F COLOUR ??

    In all my time of being a member on here and many other forums I have never came across anyone as delusional as you. Also you don't have to worry about any posts from me anytime in the future, cause my time is spent better elsewhere. Nick, apologies for not giving you any credit for the reference material an oversight on my behalf. I actually just picked it off the Google images page and pasted it on here as a link, some how it's embedded the image. Once again apologies.
