  1. Dave Thanks for posting those, really interesting and useful as I intend to build one on the RAF Twin Stars. Tony
  2. Photo of ZA180 in the following article https://docplayer.net/62329640-Police-aviation-news-august-police-aviation-research-number-160-august-2009-ipar.html
  3. I never saw the RAF DA.42 carry the EO / IR turrets. The one shown above was never in RAF service but was operated for the MoD by DO Systems. ZA179 & ZA180 were the two RAF ones, there are very few pictures of them online but with some digging some can be found. They reverted to civil identities G-DOSA & G-DOSB after use in the sandpit.
  4. The ex Hawarden (North Wales) Mi 24 were sold, one was used by BAE Systems and is at Midland Air Museum, Coventry. The other is at Dunsfold, Surrey. Another Hind in the UK is the ex Iraqi one at RAF Spadeadam.
  5. Hi all Does anyone know a source of a centreline fuel tank as carried by the Hawk T2 in 1/72 scale? Thanks in advance. Tony
  6. ZG780 carried the later scheme both when codes WF with small 25 Sqn tail markings and also with the black special tailfin.
  7. Thanks Giorgio. That scheme ties up with a photo of 73-1114 at Edwards in the full three colour euro 1 scheme, I didn't realise it used the same pattern as the Vietnam scheme but photos confirm this.
  8. Hi all Can anyone provide the camo pattern for OA-37 s in European 1 camo. Especially interested in 73-1114 when in service at Edwards AFB.
  9. When I built an RAF Chinook I used the Trumpeter CH-47 with some Italeri parts (the Italeri engine filters look a lot better.) I know the Trumpeter kit has a shape issue with the rear fuselage but I think overall it looks better.) CMK set 7162 will give you a lot of the exterior fit and chaff dispensers for the RAF version and the rest is easily scratch built.
  10. The Tranche 3 Typhoons have an extra attachment on the rear fuselage side for the projected conformal fuel tanks. I think this applies to aircraft from ZK355 onwards though I stand to be corrected on this.
  11. The Puma is now an instructional airframe at Whittington Barracks outside Lichfield.
  12. The CH-53G had a folding main rotor for hangar stowage. I have one in the stash which will be an Italeri MH-53J with Isracast parts for RWR receivers etc.
  13. ZK306 is current with 1 Sqn, last noted Aug 2018 with full 1 Sqn marks coded '306'. ZK316 is on Operation Shader in Cyprus, unmarked with code '316'. ZK326 is currently in storage at Coningsby. Hope this helps. Tony
  14. Hi all I am in the finishing stages of a Heller Etendard converted to IVP standard. When it comes to the 625L underwing drop tanks there is a sizable difference between the Heller kit tanks and the Academy Super Etendard drop tanks which I was going to use. Can anyone advise which is correct? Thanks Tony
  15. Trevor Thanks for the links, certainly some very useful exterior walkarounds specific to the Danish Cats. The Danish ones had the blister compartments modified as cargo holds with the cargo loaded through the blisters so are different from the standard patrol PBY's.
