  1. The book is postponed and they "hope it will be finished some time this year". I've contributed a little to the Swedish part in the book and they want to add some squadron badges and nose art.
  2. Canopies that have become yellow could be exposed to ultra violet light and the yellowness may disappear. I've had canopies in the sunny window for months and the wellowness have almost disappered. I haven't tried UV-lamps, but that should work.
  3. Great news! Here are walk around pictures of a Swedish one. http://www.flygloster.com/extra/Skyraider.htm

    I did try to link to a picture, but with no success. The picture is on this page if you scroll down a bit. https://www.militaryfactory.com/aircraft/detail.asp?aircraft_id=126

    If you shake a tree you will see what's falling down. I'm not surprised of your different kind of response. And you are right in many ways. Yellow colour is a qualified guess... but... Let's get down to the brass tacks. Dana: You're quite right. You and I did discuss this particular aircraft on another forum years ago. I'm still dealing with the case. At that time I'd only had one picture, the right hand side of the nose . Now, I've got several others. This aircraft is the Mosquito PR Mk. XVI NS650 from the 25th Bomb Group (Rcn), 654th BS, USAAF at Watton. It had to force land in Sweden 3 april 1945 after a Graypea mission against Kiel. At the Squadron there were also Mosquitos that flew Blue stocking missions, wheather reconnaissance. They also got mission markings which is well documented. So why shouldn't the Graypea missions be as well? I'm sure the answer is out there somewhere. https://www.militaryfactory.com/aircraft/detail.asp?aircraft_id=126

    Maybe it sounds a bit harsh I admit, but there are too many people who use the simple solution and just assume about a subject instead of doing research in the archives. Aspecially when it comes to colours and markings. The answer, I'm sure, is to be find in the archives. There are a lot of people, who search the archives. They deserve all the credit they can get. It's a heavy job! There are also people who finds the answer in books and magazines. That is excellent if it's possible to trace the information source. You all know this. There are too much fake or false information on the Internet. What one writes on the Internet becomes the truth tomorrow and that is something everyone should avoid.

    Allright, let's say it like this. I don't want any guesses or assuptions. I want those who really know to tell the colours. Therefore I didn't put any other data out now. It will come later on... The Mossie version is in the picture by the way...

    What colours are the chaff mission markings?
  9. I've built a couple Revell kits and it's pretty straight forward. With an engine from a Roden kit it's nice indeed.
  10. Here is one picture of the interior of the ex Swedish SE-AGE, now in Australia. https://abpic.co.uk/pictures/view/1330939
  11. Jepp, made by Munin Models and later by Flugzeug.
  12. I have no opinion of the colours. That's what is suggested in the book. I'll hope the author Kjetil Aakra wil respond to my message and come with his view. Here is one model builders version on the Norwegian IPMS forum. (only in Norwegian I'm afraid) You may follow the thread her: https://forum.ipmsnorge.org/topic/15826-gustav-fra-sørlandet-eduard-109g-14/ /Mats
  13. Since I'm the one supplying the picture for the book, I can therefore show it to you here: Please enjoy. Please note the number 13 on the right wheel leg. The aircraft is of JG5 at Lista, Norway may 1945, photographed at Kjevik, Norway just after the war. The colours are probably RLM 75/82/76.
