  1. Not a common subject for photographs! Best pictures I have found are of the Norwegian Mk86 Tail number 235 on Airliners.net. There's a good shot from the rear left quarter that may be of use. Norwegian Mk86 Lynx CPI
  2. Welcome aboard from the Isle of Avalon! Plenty of modellers in the South west- off to the Tank Museum next weekend?
  3. I've been using Jadlam for a while now, they are mail order only and have no shop front, but operate from a unit in Glastonbury. Top service and quite a lot of big discounts.
  4. Jadlam Racing Models have a clearance on at the moment and are shipping the Revell (Hasegawa) 1/48 FGR 2 Phantom for £21.30. I think that's how much I was paying in 1990! (I have no involvement with Jadlam, just a very happy customer who lives in the same town.) Jadlam sale
  5. It's a cracking little kit, one I completed a few years ago- and still sits in the cabinet. One piece of advice I found on the web somewhere, and which I followed- was to slot the two locating holes on each side of the engine pod together in one line, to enable the pod to be installed once the fuselage was assembled and painted- not such an issue on the Sky painted 'Fluke' 387, but masking the Extra Dark Sea Grey on the Suez striped 378 might prove tricky. Looking forward to seeing this one progress. Good luck, and happy modelling!
  6. Not familiar with the type or kit, but that's a fine looking model. Lovely finish.
  7. I thought "Great looking model, fabulous photography, but hasn't he got large hands?" then I realised. 1/72? Super Job! Note to self, always read the title
  8. Nice work! I've been thinking about these amazing race cars a lot recently as the Matt Damon/ Christian Bale film "Le Mans '66" is out soon- you've done a grand job on a nice kit.
  9. Gloria Finis! Cracking 43 Squadron Phantom, displayed superbly in flight. (One nit-pick, the Base has a typo, it's Leuchars, not Leuchers, but I used to get mail addressed to RAF LUCAS so you aren't that far off!)

    Good Day, EH!

    Welcome aboard! My total experience of Canada is a brief stopover on the tarmac at Edmonton and several visits to Timmy Horton's. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
  11. Thanks for the steer Dave, I have a good rummage around the F16.net pages- There are no definitive photo's of the FSD Seat, but there is a link to the Ejection seat site from the Forum. I think the Grey seat in the middle of the group of three in the "UPCo" section is the correct one, but can't confirm. Stencel Seat
  12. Putting the final touches to my FSD F-16 and I am looking for any pictures of the Ejection seat as installed on these aircraft. It is widely reported that these Aircraft had a Stencel Seat fitted, but not many sources state type of seat (Some say S-III-S) I have exhausted my References and can only confirm a Red headrest cover- Can any one provide any links/ Photo's of this item? Thanks for reading, Troffa
  13. Takes me back- right back to the 'Warlord' Annual, Christmas 1979! Thanks for sharing Warlord!
  14. I only worked on F3's but the system was the same- and the brakes were left out occasionally, maybe once a month or so, at shut down, to enable routine inspections to be carried out. The hydraulic Reservoir indications on the side of the fuselage would be a couple of litres low due to the fluid in the actuators. In short it wouldn't be unreasonable to have them deployed on the ground.
  15. That's a great looking Weasel, I guess the old Monogram kit can finally be retired.
