  1. Indeed - the previous RoG boxing had a RDAF option. I still have one in the stash! Cheers, Andrd
  2. As I said to Mrs Hook, "Well dear, hanging out on Britmodeller is cheaper than therapy and less allaround hassle than a shooting spree." Cheers, Andre
  3. Not particularly, no. Then again, I make no fuss over her apparant need for five different raincoats (at least), all of which she maintains are absolutely essential for her continuous survival. Cheers, Andre
  4. Their US Navy Phantom book is really lovely. Come on, you know you need it in your life. Incidentally, I once made the rookie mistake of showing Mrs. Hook what my Jake Melampy Phantom book went for second hand on Amazon... immediately her eyes lit up. "Why don't we sell it off?" "Well...it's mine..?". Cheers, Andre
  5. Ah yes, the double edged Sword (see what I did there?) of gorgeous references like the DACO volume. Both a blessing and a bane, I tell you. Back in the day we had to carve our own reference books from throwaway pieces of oak, and we were happy, dagnabbit! Coming along nicely!, that pit looks the canine's danglies from over here. Cheers, Andre
  6. There's this: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/xtradecal-x32-018-ee-lightning-f6--175668 Caveat empor, I've found most recent-ish Xtradecal sheets only so so - some dodgy errors, severe register issues and no response to e-mails whatsoever. Cheers, Andre
  7. According to my references, the SMT / bis were the first versions wired for the R-60 when built. The only MF's that could carry them as delivered from the construction line were the Izdeliye 96D Gorki-built export versions that had some bis features (Eduards 1/72nd MiG-21MF "interceptor" boxings). HTH, Andre
  8. Ah, Avatar - Space Pocahontas where the main resource is actually unironically called "unobtanium". Recently I ran into an exgirlfriend at a birthday, and she gushed about how deeply spiritual she found it. "Ah yes, that's why we broke up..". Cheers, Andre
  9. The bomb door could indeed be closed for flight, rotating to the open position for weapons delivery. Cheers, Andre
  10. Indeed: https://www.scalemates.com/nl/kits/atma-paulista-1-fokker-s-11--590287 I'd never even heard of the brand. Cheers, Andre
  11. I am innately suspicious regarding food that is only eaten for special occasions. After all, if the stuff would actually be any good, we'd stuff it down all year round. Cheers, Andre
  12. Ditto - I saw their last deployment to Leeuwarden AB, on exchange with our 3222 / 323 Squadron F-16's, which must have been around '87. Glad I managed to catch them. https://www.airliners.net/photo/UK-Air-Force/English-Electric-Lightning-F6/1296246 Cheers, Andre
  13. Truly a one off and one of the main reasons I bought myself a Telecaster. Thanks for the music, sir.
  14. F.6 pits be Dark Admiralty Grey. Cheers, Andre
  15. "We are all lying in the gutter, but some of us are fondling an 1/72nd Starfighter." Cheers, Andre
