  1. I'd say a Mk.77 Mod 1 https://bulletpicker.com/bomb_-500-lb-fire_-mk-77-mod-1.html
  2. Hello, Here's my Revell 1/72 Tornado IDS, done as one one from the Luftwaffe Training Unit at Holloman AFB in New Mexico. Kit decals were used, with some changes to the serial as I couldn't find any pics of the kit option. I used Hataka airbrush optimised acrylics on this one. I had planned to use their lacquers instead, but the shop I got the paint from accidentaly sent me the acryclis. I had no idea what to use as a thinner, but it turned out plain water worked reasonably well. Thanks for looking.
  3. The RAAF did some trials for the USAF with AIM-7's on th inboard pylons, even with AIM-9's next to them. It would make a nice original model. Some pics on this page: https://www.angelfire.com/extreme/raafphantoms/RAAFPHLYERS1.htm
  4. Neither have I. Any change you could post a photo of that?
  5. If you have to use Tamiya, I'd go for a mix of the XF-20 with white. There are many brands who do the right shade straight from the bottle though. I'd go for a satin coat but you won't be wrong with a flat or slightly more glossy finish either. They started glossy, but some time at sea and it all becomes flat sooner or later.
  6. I'm sorry, but the Block 30's not being capable of using the HARM is not true. They might have not been using the HTS pod, but they could and did carry the HARM. And -227 at Incirlik during the Gulf War
  7. A friend of mine, @KoenL, found a cool set of P-47 photo's on FB, and on some of these P-47D's there is a bulge just below the windscreen that I don't remember seeing before. I'm tempted to think it is a rear view mirror. Anyone here have an idea? https://scontent-amt2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/138779918_420194889249341_4940558484647455941_o.jpg?_nc_cat=109&ccb=2&_nc_sid=b9115d&_nc_ohc=bnRiS-AfLf0AX8PWpZV&_nc_ht=scontent-amt2-1.xx&oh=f9ff04f9e00e41ff8b0504abe6fdaddb&oe=602A2E9E https://scontent-amt2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/138730199_420194459249384
  8. Normally I pretty much just build aircraft models, but this year I did all kinds of stuff and thoroughly enjoyed it. Maybe that's why I managed to finish 17 builds. Started in 2019, but finished in 2020, a 1/72 Italeri SF-5B with Series Espanolas decals: For the Nordic GB, a Swedish Spitfire PR.XIX, 1/48 Airfix kit. The Italeri rebox of the Hasegawa 1/48 Hawker Typhoon, first time using masks for the markings: First time building a ship, the 1/700 Dragon USS Normandy: First time building something WW2 Japanese,
  9. Here's my Freedom Model Kits 1/35 MIM-14C Nike Hercules in Dutch markings. Bit of a mixed bag, this kit, but the end result is impressive. It is also quite large, so I had to go outside on this cold and grey day to take some pics. Thanks for looking, Pete
  10. Well, it's done. It is rather large, so it doesn't quite fit my usual photography set up, and the contrast between the white and olive drab makes it a bit hard to take pics of, so I will try some with daylight outside tomorrow. Here's a pic for now.
  11. Thanks! It is moveable, but I think I will glue it in about a 45 degree angle. Got the decals on. As I said, I used roundels from a Flevodecals set because the kit ones are not the greatest, color wise. The stencil decals are a bit too bright as well, I might spray some heavily thinned olive drab over them. We'll see. If all goes well, I should be able to finish this one before the end of the year.
  12. Hello, Here's my just finished 1/72 Ryan BQM-34A Firebee. It's the Plusmodel kit, they do several boxings of this kit and this version comes with a little resin and PE transport dolly. The Firebee itself is injection molded. It's a simple little kit, the whole thing took me about a week to finish. The kit allows you to do it as several USAF ones, all in the same scheme just with different serials, a white and black US Navy one, and this brightly coloured US Navy one. Painted with Tamiya and MRP paints. Thanks for looki
