  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Hope this will help. The color is standard dark green. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  6. 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
  7. Yes, Finns tested the Oelikon FF and Danes used the Madsen 20 mm cannons. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  8. 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
  9. 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.

  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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.

  15. 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

  17. This example seems to have the port wheel well and inside of the cover remained in silver. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  18. They actually carried bombs and rockets at the same time. They normally carried US bombs, but these look like French or British. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  19. On pages 374 to 382 of Air Britain book, Fleet Air Arm Aircraft 1939 to 1945 listed up hundreds of Spitfires with 8 photos including Hooked Spitfires. https://www.amazon.com/Fleet-Air-Aircraft-1939-1945/dp/0851302327/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=Fleet+Air+Arm+Aircraft+1939+to+1945&qid=1607250839&s=books&sr=1-5 Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  20. The same as the underside. This is an air brake of F-4J Bu. No. 153873 of VF-161, taken at NAF Atsugi, on 14 May 1978. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  21. This drawing specifies white for the registration and stripes. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  22. I don't think the Bagdad Furies carried the rockets in Arab-Israeli wars, but it is possible they used rochets in the counter insurgency role against Kurdish dissidents. AFAIK, this Russian site is the best information source on the Bagdad Fury. https://militarizm.su/vojna-v-irake/hawker-fury-v-egipte-i-irake-poslevoennaya-sluzhba-irakskih-hawker-fury.html Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums

That is a civil registered F-86F, NX86F (ex 52-5139) owned by Heritage Aircraft Sales Inc in Indianapolis. http://aerialvisuals.ca/AirframeDossier.php?Serial=33159 https://registry.faa.gov/AircraftInquiry/Search/NNumberResult?nNumberTxt=86f Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  24. As Dave said, the inside of the both brake and well are red. Here're some walk around photos for your reference. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  25. Hi Jim, As you said, the Tamiya part does not look like the Type 92 bombsight, but they might refer this color cutaway of Maru Mechanic when rendering it. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/8315380326/in/photolist-dEH85i-dENuSj-dEH7Ji-x6Eus1-y4mVok-x6EzgE-y3G3Nc-xL4HLC-xL6iEW-xL5ddN-x6NZyR-x6PciH-xL56Eh
