  1. Thanks Patrice. I'll be getting a few myself! Take care, Jay
  2. You may be correct about the forward dispensers. When I retired in '09, there were only two inside the "U" shaped fairing but there were discussions about expanding them to four. In the pic of the damaged fairing I posted, it looked like it had been expanded, so I'd assumed it had been. I can't verify that it has been, though. Some of the antenna underneath belong to the ALR-69A(V) radar warning receiver (RWR). Unfortunately, I don't have any good pics of it available and my Dash-1 is packed up and in storage. The items are new from Hannant's newletter this morning. There were 2 on hand
  3. Hi Larry, Have you seen these at Hannant's https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/ASQ72090? Also, the dispensers at the rear of the external tank pylons face aft: not left or right. They are arranged side-by-side but with each dispenser oriented vertically (unlike the horizontal orientation of the armpits). I hope the drawing below help clears it up. I don't have the exact measurements, but I'd estimate the dimensions of the blanking plate to be 14-15" wide and 9" tall. Remember to take into the account the width of the pylon that the triangle fairing blends into. If you don't, it can crea
  4. Hi Larry, Here are some pics I took of the pylon dispenser today. Hopefully they're sufficient as I was racing to get them after work before a TStorm rolled in.
  5. Hi Larry, Yeah, the Spec Ops birds almost always had different equipment and configurations. i wouldn't rely on them for modeling a "vanilla" trash hauler. I'm here at Warner Robins, GA so I'll see if I can get by the Museum tomorrow and take some pics of the pylon dispensers on the one they have displayed. It's an E model but should be configured the same as Maxwell's H2s, The only other aftermarket dispenser set I know of is Tecnik 7201. It's also photo etch and is long out of production. My recommendation would be to model them with the cover plates installed. Beavertail and armpits
  6. Yeah, you could say that. More pics here: http://photo.fayobserver.com/?ssid=3663&sid=1
  7. Hi Larry, Depending upon the model and country of C-130 you’re modeling, the C-130 defensive systems layout can be quite different. If you’re looking at a “vanilla” (non-special purpose) C-130H3 USAF trash hauler that your Cheyenne Guard Herc pic depicts, there are actually 22 countermeasure dispensers located in 7 areas around the aircraft. I’ve marked your Cheyenne Herc pic with them. The AN/ALE-40 is the entire dispensing system consisting not only of the dispensers (the buckets into which the flare/chaff canisters are placed), but the wiring and switches/boxes on the flight deck as w
  8. My question was answered on ARC. Here's the link to the new kit's contents: http://www.moxing.net/bbs/thread-46978-1-1.htmlif you're interested. Initial look is that it is quite nice. Jay
  9. Is it a completely new mold or based on their earlier attempt to model the Flying Leopard? If it’s the latter, there’s no way I’ll spend one cent on that monstrosity. Fool me once….. Thanks, Jay
  10. Thanks for the info guys. This one snuck in under my radar. Really looking forward to it though, since I have some time in the A model. I think it would be cheaper to backdate the Italeri J than to purchase the Skymodel resin kit. Of course, Italeri might have a future C-27A release (ala their C-130s) that would make the backdating moot. Jay
  11. Haven't heard that one but would really be excited if it were true. Where did you hear about it? Jay P.S. Now we need to press them for a 1/72 scale AMX!
  12. I plan to model the B-26 "Ginny Lou" pictured below using the 1/72 Hasegawa kit. But there is still some info about Ginny that I don't know. Specifically, I need help determining serial number and individual aircraft letter code. If there's anyone out there that can help me, I'd appreciate it. Known facts from the pilot... 9th AF 323rd Bomb Group (Medium) 455th Bomb Squadron Known facts from the pictures... Either a B or C model B-26 Marauder Delivered in Olive Drab top and Neutral Gray under surfaces. In Iceland in mid '43 and England in Aug '44 Had seen combat by Aug '44 due to
