  1. Airfix were specifically given access to the mosquito so it wasn't just a passing fancy
  2. A few months back Airfix were looking at the Mosquito at Cosford...
  3. On the ground it is possible to lower the flaps without extending the slats by using the slat lock button on the flight engineers panel. As I'm not aircrew I couldn't say if it was used in the air but it would have been possible Adam
  4. Hi Peter This forum is on about the same sort of problem you are having. Might be worth a read https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?334760-Vacuum-forming-problems Hope you get it sorted. You've come to far to let a little canopy stop you.
  5. It's coming along nicely. The four disks on the underside are the rad alt antennas and the probe between the pitots is the ice detector. Looking forward to seeing it in paint
  6. The longest side of the dispensers are joined. And the longest side goes vertically. If you have a close up of the armpit dispensers just turn the picture 90°
  7. There's two slots in the nose. They are side by side. Which is the lower part where is says flare no1 and flare no2. The hole above is usually covered over with a panel as the sequencers sit behind the panel. Hope this helps
  8. There is only 2 dispenser inside the u shape fairing on the nose. Each side has 2 nose. 4 armpit. 2 pylon and then the 2 under the tail. Making 18 in total. The black hole on the rear door is part of the pressurisation system. Great work so far
  9. Sorry I misinterpreted what you meant. If it helps the RAF only tend to use the nose and armpits. The tail and rear pylons don't really get used
  10. All the dispensers are blanked off when flares/chaff aren't loaded. It's just a flat panel secured with dzus fasteners
  11. The small box shape on the rear of the external tank pylon is a chaff/flare dispenser. These are present on most c130s that have external tanks with a flare/chaff countermeasures system. Cracking work so far. Watching with interest
  12. The box shaped object just in front of the para door is the IRCM. Infra red counter measures. Which was used on RAF C130Ks but got replaced by better versions mounted on the fuselage sides aft of the para doors. I believe the jungly Sea Kings used the IRCM too
  13. The ADS arms are always fitted, they just get disconnected on the ground to allow the ramp past the flat floor position. This applies to both the K and the J
  14. On startup on the J the props start to spin in the feathered position. I've never seen the pitch of the props change before they are started
  15. The ones at cosford were used for marshalling and flight servicing training and the majority of them were taxiable. They have all been replaced with the jaguars now.
