    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
