    Barracuda questions regarding wing fold

    Thanks, I try to post weekly but normal life gets in the way sometimes. Off to Wales for a family break so won’t be in tomorrow or next Friday but I will be posting as I’ve been sent some photos to post.

    My tailplane picture!
  4. The Cobb is just out of shot on the left. The double gable end building is The Cobb Arms.

    Revell P-70 Missing Parts HELP!

    Your contract was with the vendor so just take it back and request a refund or replacement as the goods are not fit for purpose.

    AugustaWestland Wildcat info please

    South Korea has bought some.
  7. Nice model but the tail rotor of an AH1 turns in the opposite direction (anti-clockwise when viewed from the left) to an AH7 (clockwise) and has different blades. I believe you’ve retained the AH7 tail rotor and blades.

    Was there a standard size for Royal Navy/FAA serials?

    The standard size for both was 4".

    Falklands War Seaking colours

    You’re correct, light will always play tricks. They were painted polyurethane matt NATO green to BS381C-285 from 1980 until 2016, the same as the Wessex HU5. DAP101C-0404-6A Chap 07-80-00 pg 703-3 refers.

    Sea King HC4s we painted in the same shade of green throughout their lives.

    Airfix new tool Sea King HAR.3 to HU.5?

    Referred to unofficially as an HAR5, the official designation was HU5.
  13. Just noticed that a new volume in the Classic Publications Luftwaffe series will be published next year, Dornier Do 215 - Luftwaffe and other Operators 1938-1945, by Mikael Olrog to be published on 15 June 2017. ISBN 1906537526, currently listed on Amazon at £63.38 for pre-order. No idea what number in the series this will be but there is a gap in the numbering for the volumes in the series published so far.

    Sea King HAR3 tail code/decal help

    The HAR3As also differed structurally internally below the MRGB. Frames stn 243.5 and 290 were monobloc machinings rather than being made up from numerous alloy and steel plates, capping angles and straps etc.

    Sea King retrograde building question.

    The strengthening at the transportation joint, stn 493, was modification 830. 6 plates, 3 each side held on with 811 Hi-Lok fasteners. Introduced to prevent cracking of the stn 493 half frames on the forward face of the tail cone and the stn 493 webs on the rear face of the fuselage. It mostly worked.
