  1. The interior surfaces were painted with one coat of zinc chromate primer AN-TT-P-656 and one coat of tinted zinc chromate primer (normally one part of zinc chromate and one part of black). The exterior surfaces were painted with one coat of zinc chromate primer before applying camouflage colors. And this is the specifications of 3-tone camouflage.

  2. Never seen photos of the white top Invaders in Indochina, even in this book. But there are a bunch of photos of the white top Invaders in Algeria as you can see in the following links. http://www.frenchwings.net/algeria/gallery/displayimage.php?album=8&pid=3272#top_display_media http://tenes.info/nostalgie/BVINGTSIX http://aerostories.free.fr/events/algerie/algerie06/index.html Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  3. According to this book, Z and E/F used the 3-blade VDM metal propellers, but differed in the diameter. Z: 3.6 m E/F: 3.2 m Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  4. These images from the Pilot's Notes for the MR. 2 will be of some help. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  5. Not sure, but it may be this site. https://aerobaticteams.net/en/teams/t1/Military-Aerobatic-Teams.html Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  6. Hope this will help. The color is standard dark green. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  7. These images are of a preserved AEW. 2, but it retains the original color which is Extra Dark Sea Grey. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  8. Yes, Finns tested the Oelikon FF and Danes used the Madsen 20 mm cannons. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  9. Sorry, that's not a UH-34D, but UH-34E, Bu. No. 144655. The E model has a single exhaust pipe. https://www.helis.com/database/model/HUS-1A-UH-34E/ Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  10. Many thanks for your inputs guys. As Chris said, the Matchbox kit is a rebox of the Pioneer2/PM kit. I have the Phalanx monography as well as the Lela Presse monography by Peter de Jong from which I posted the head on view of the cannon pod, but a 3-view drawing in this book shows the barrels in the center of the pods. I've never heard of J-42 has installed with a 20 mm and 23 mm on each wing. Both of the above mentioned 2 book describe that the Danish D.XXI carried a pair of 20 mm cannons.

  11. Hello Junchan,

    Your picture is much appreciated. 

    I was in contact with former members of VXE6 and the told me: "We have never seen any LH-34D with skis. "

    Your picture proofs the opposite.

    Difference: Their pictures show the type with three exhaust pipes from the radial engine.

    This model has only one exhaust. (Seabat/Choctaw/)

  12. I'm not asking about boresight, but about disalignment of the centers of the gondola and barrel. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  13. I'm currently building a Matchbox Fokker D.XXI to be finished as a Danish version with a pair of 20 mm Madsen cannons. As seen in this photo, the barrel of the left cannon is not in the center of the gondola, but offset to the left (outward), I didn't find any photo of the right gondola. My question is that the right cannon is offset to the right (outward) or to the left (Inward). Any help will be appreciated. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  14. This is the only one with the skis I managed to find. All other LH-34Ds of VX-6 did not wear the skis. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  15. The HEFS was retrofitted in late 1980s, but it was removed probably from 2000s by some reason. GO! NAVY BBSII has a lot of photos of the CH-46 with the HEFS. http://www.gonavy.jp/bbs1/img/7895.jpg http://www.gonavy.jp/bbs1/img/7877.jpg http://www.gonavy.jp/bbs1/img/7965.jpg http://www.gonavy.jp/bbs1/img/8032.jpg http://www.gonavy.jp/bbs1/index.cgi?page:465=v Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
