    Thank you for the information gentlemen most helpful the info on the the differances between the MRP pods. Thank you Jens for the shots of the MRP superb. My kit I am doing will require some modification to do a RDAF machine and it will have to have the older PIDS pylons the ones carried know are a very nice piece of kit but are way out of making with my model skills. Again many thanks. Kind Regards Craig

    RDAF F-16 MLU Recce Pod (MRP)

    Hi There I have recently got the Daco 1/72 MRP Reconnaissance Pod and I want to put it on my RDAF F-16A MLU of the Skrydstrup wing but I cannot seem to find any really good pictures of it on RDAF F-16s. Would anyone have any recent pictures of the RDAF ones carrying it or is it not used anymore. Many Thanks Craig
