  1. Doubtfull. Most D-5's from what I can gather went to Europe and the MTO. Europe had higher priority than the pacific which was well covered by the P-38, hence the P-51 was a late arrival in the PTO/CBI
  2. 8AF started with colored fins around Oct-Nov 1944, so could have been an early one?
  3. Did some more searching, and it turns out that 44-13606 was crash-landed at A-89 on Oct 24th -44 by Capt. Davison. Crenshaw then took over 44-15016. Hence you will probably never find photos of 44-13606 with more than 5 kills on the canopy. I have never seen photos of 44-15016, so can't help you there, but the coding was still IV-I and the plane was named Heat Wave, it is likely that the name had similar style as when carried on 44-13606
  4. Google is your friend; http://www.americanairmuseum.com/person/33206 http://www.usaaf-noseart.co.uk/plane.php?plane=us-louisiana-heat#.XY-hfUYzZPY
  5. This is fairly straight forward; The P-51D-5's without fin fillet came mainly in the 44-13xxx series around (May) June-44. During fall (Sept-Oct) of -44, the fillet-less P-51D-5's started having the fin-fillet retrofitted. Louisianna Heatwave served through this period, and if you count the kills on the canopy in Eduards marking option, it shows only 2 kills. Other sheets shows 5-7, reflecting Crenshaw's later kills. So basically the markings are reflecting the fighter at different times. Hope this helps?

  7. Harpoons are rarely seen on the F-16D+ which the Vipers of 145sq are designated as. They do however carry all types of LGB/GBU's aswell as AGM-65's and the usual Mk-8x series.

    P-51D "Dappy VI"

    Correct name for Col. Clark's P-51D 44-64148 5Q-C is Happy IV. Dappy VI is not correct, sorry
  9. https://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/decals/fad/decal_fad_48010a.shtml Might be hard to find - if I recall correctly this was Furballs fastest selling sheet ever, and now the second print is sold out too. Glad I bought 2 sheets back when it was first released
  10. Hi Alex The pylons were the standard type - the only ones with special underwing pylons were the Germans with the Exocet missiles and the Italians with the AIM-9/AIM-7 pylons.
  11. Interesting - Block 40/42 WAR HUD
  12. What color is RAL 6014? Not too familiar with RAL's unfortunatelly
  13. Sorry, mixed up with LuckyModel, but all the same - try through LM?
  14. Use the "My request" on your account on the webpage. Might take a day or two for them to reply, but usually quick on responses. Be sure to be clear on what kit, sprue number, part number etc. you are after as this helps shortening the time for replies.
  15. There's plenty of reviews out there for the Kinetic kits. Essentially the same kit as this one, save the F-16D parts are not included; https://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/kits/kin/kit_kin_48076.shtml
  16. It's this one; http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/303666-148-f-16-bdu-sprinter-and-2b-decals/page/2/ Having read through it, the colors are off unfortunatelly

    KLM blue

    Reviving an old thread as I just stumbled upon this one yesterday; Anyone know how MrHobby H25 and Lifecolor LC09 matches up with the KLM blue?
  19. EDIT: There's 3 Vipers painted up in this scheme; 86-0286, 86-0295 and 86-0310. Twobobs did markings for the 86-0295 http://twobobs.net/contents/en-us/p713_48-262-F-16C-Alaskan-Splinters-Part-II.html
