  1. I think the Juno can be built from the box, the Jupiter will need flotation gear etc fitted. It may be worth waiting to see what configuration the new Jupiter's ZM496 - 499 appear in.
  2. Cam anyone advise which MB ejector seat is fitted in the pilots cockpits of the two Martin Baker Meteors Wl419 and WA638. Also any photos of the instrument panel would be helpful. Thanks in advance. Tony
  3. North Wing Model Craft from Japan do / did an excellent resin conversion for the Hasegawa E-2. I bought mine directly from them a few years back.
  4. A Google search for CIA Mi 17 brings up some interesting photos. The DoSAW also operated modified SH-3 and CH-46.
  5. Dave Thanks for posting those, really interesting and useful as I intend to build one on the RAF Twin Stars. Tony
  6. Photo of ZA180 in the following article https://docplayer.net/62329640-Police-aviation-news-august-police-aviation-research-number-160-august-2009-ipar.html
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. ZG780 carried the later scheme both when codes WF with small 25 Sqn tail markings and also with the black special tailfin.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. The Puma is now an instructional airframe at Whittington Barracks outside Lichfield.
