  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Hope this will help. The color is standard dark green. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  4. 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
  5. Yes, Finns tested the Oelikon FF and Danes used the Madsen 20 mm cannons. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  6. 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
  7. 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.

  8. 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/)

     

    Regards,

  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. According to A History of Chinese Aviation Encyclopedia of Aircraft and Aviation in China until 1949 by Lennart Anderson, eight R-10s were delivered to the aviation school at Kuldsha in 1939, but the book does not show any photo of the R-10.

  14. This is a GR. 1, XV281/B (not V as stated in IWM photo caption) on board HMS Hermes in the 1977 trial. On this occasion, three other Harriers participated in the trial as shown in this photo. https://www.flickr.com/photos/davids_world_2011/5932723369/in/gallery-39411748@N06-72157626999028999/ Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  15. The first photo is XZ492 of No. 800 Sqn. https://www.flickr.com/photos/53277566@N06/25134620555/in/photolist-2jMXVvC-2ivRVX9-bz6b4A-QavBYN-2hTPQm5-pxQ9Um-Ei4v1P-bEhbzP-pgv6Xr-99nfFx-cjnnKh-244hB56-7auVfX Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
