  1. Cuban Sea Furies.

    This comes from the "Sea Fury in action" book. BTW when the book came out 25 years ago, Dan Hagedorn complained to the publishers that the artwork was bogus and that no Furies had ever been painted in FAEC markings.
  2. This must be the first EVER book published on a HAF/RHAF subject by a major publisher: https://www.casematepublishers.com/colours-and-markings-of-hellenic-spitfires-1943-1954.html#.WrLp1z8pLIU Out in January 2019. I wonder what the future holds as far as MMP Books is concerned...
  3. Breguet 19 and Potez 25 XXV: any fans?

    First another photo: That's the photo file from his website (right click and save): http://www.ole-nikolajsen.com/TURKISH FORCES 2004/BR19fotos.pdf And finally another link (also in English with Turkish AF Breguet 19 info including serials, names, etc): http://www.tayyareci.com/digerucaklar/turkiye/1923ve50/breguet19.asp HTH (somewhat...)
  4. Breguet 19 and Potez 25 XXV: any fans?

    I mean that she flew aircraft #19. FWIW Ole Nikolaesen (far more knowledgeable in Turkish AF matters) states that all her operational missions during the Dersim Rebellion (which is why all these photos of her in the Breguet were taken in the first place) were flown in aircraft #19...
  5. Letov S-16.1 colours

    Might not seem correct to you but that's how the Chechoslovak AF aircraft were painted. See below: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/183800-pre-wwii-czech-color-question/ BTW I checked modelforum's 1918-1939 section referenced above and it confirms the use of Aluminium Dope for the undersides. http://www.modelforum.cz/viewforum.php?f=310 I don't know what the original KP instructions indicated but the last reissue of the Letov S.16 by KP Models (kit 72091) which included Czechoslovakian, Latvian & Turkish markings gave the undersides of the former as Aluminium and the later two as light blue which is in-line with the colours that other Turkish AF types of the era (Bre.19 etc ) were delivered and therefore seems entirely plausible.
  6. Breguet 19 and Potez 25 XXV: any fans?

    Nope. It's aircraft #19. See photo below:

  8. Out in January: http://www.lanasta.eu/Shop/product/230/warplane-plus01.html
  9. Here is the photo in question: BTW the aircraft is a UC-45F...
  10. It's in here: https://www.amazon.com/Secrets-Signals-Intelligence-During-Studies/dp/0714651761 But there is only one sentence; no further details about serials etc...
  11. The only Armee de l'Air unit in Indochina that operated C-45 aircraft was ELA 52 (Escadrille de Liaison Aerienne) based at Tan Son Nhut from 1948 to 1954. AFAIK they had UC-45Fs , but I cannot find a photo online... There are photos of AdA C-45s in Indochina here: https://www.amazon.fr/Laviation-militaire-fran├žaise-Indochine-Collection/dp/B000X6IUVW/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1503755486&sr=1-2 Maybe someone that has the book could help... HTH (somewhat)... PS I've also heard about this story; the aircraft had Radio Direction Finding gear fitted to monitor Viet Minh Radio Transmitters...
