    ALQ-71

    Here's a couple of diagrams and a photo of the ALQ-71. Hope these will help. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  2. My fellow modeler Naka-san is posting a WIP article on his Facebook, which must be helpful. https://www.facebook.com/nakashima.shinji.73/posts/4246447535435101 Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums

    H-B W. 29 Questions

    On page 21 of this book, a photo of a Christensen's W. 29 is shown and the caption reads as follows; This W. 29 appears to be 2512 from what can be discerned of the Marine Number. Christensen is in the cockpit and it bears his personal insignia and early production tail plane. The observer has a Parabellum 14/17 light machine gun with an Oigee telescopic sight mounted in the production style cockpit with gun ring. https://www.amazon.com/Hansa-Brandenburg-Aircraft-WWI-Monoplane-Seaplanes/dp/1935881337/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=centennial+perspective+on+great+war+airplane+hansa+brandenburg&qid=1625759168&s=books&sr=1-2&asin=1935881337&revisionId=&format=4&depth=1 Furthermore, on page 55, there is a close up photo of the nose with a caption as follows: Close-up of the nose of an H.M. 1 showing the installation of the synchronised Vickers gun. Note the Cellon panel in the floor of the pilot's cockpit hanging open. Hope this will help. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  5. The seat arrangement of the Ju 52 transport varied a lot depending on the various roles applicable. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  6. The Sea Fury did not have a landing light. Here's a description on the external lighting from the Pilot's Notes for Sea Fury 10 & 11. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums/72157640450673043
  7. #1 and #2 are the carburetor intakes. The bottom of #4 is an access panel for the oil pipe connection. An Airfix 1/48 kit is most recommended. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  8. The wing sweep of the Revell/Monogram Sabre Dog is too much, about 5 degrees steeper than that of the real machine. This is a my friend's photo showing the Airfix wings laid over the Monogram wings. You can see the sweep difference clearly. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  9. 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.

  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. Hope this will help. The color is standard dark green. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  15. 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
