  1. If you can get hold of the IPMS Evolution of the Red Arrows 'book'. This will answer most of your questions, at least up the the point at which it was written (published 2014).
  2. Stepan. is there any difference in the behaviour of the two decal sheets?
  3. scan on its way, If any one else has this issue let me know and I can sort something. I don't use a file sharing resource so can't post it here.
  4. Pm your email address and I'll email it.
  5. If you have the sheet with 49 I could scan the placement diagrams for the option you want to build and email them to you.
  6. I believe that there were two different decal sheets supplied with this kit, in one the Austrian 7L'WA marking is item 49 and on the other it is 11 (as in @exdraken's post above). The online (Revell site) instructions are for the sheet with this marking as 11, mine that came with the kit were for 49. The two sheets are laid out completely differently, as can be seen from the small decal sheet image on the placement diagrams. Other than the decal sheet layout the kits appear to be identical - even the markings.
  7. Model Alliance sheet 48102 includes ZG512/83 as a GR.7, but also has the 1 and white 2 from other aircraft
  8. The Daco book on the lightning says "The F.53 (not T.55) export version has additional internal structure to strengthen the wing to allow for the provision of an underwing pylon". The accompanying photos show a distinct pylon shaped structure inset to the underwing surface. This should show up on any underside photo The Ian Huntley scale diagram in the Warpaint doesn't show these panel lines (not conclusive I know but certainly suggestive). None of the photos I have access to show this area of the F.6 clearly.
  9. The Kinetic 48th T-Harrier does feature these blisters
  10. Eduard GR.1 version of the Revell 48th version coming soon as well
  11. The harrier sig has a good downloadable pdf with harrier colours. Either MSG overall or dark sea grey with dark camouflage grey for the GR9. They also recommend suitable paints.
  12. Detail and Scale (Vol 62 copyright 1999) shows the P40F with wing tip to fin wires and the P40L with mast to fin wire. The MBI P40 shows the F with mast to fin and in some cases a second wire from aft of the mast to the fin (extended fuselage) or from the fin to the stabiliser tips (short fuselage). also seems to show all sorts of combinations thereof for various subversions. The profile of ?.GA serail FX740 shows mast and fuselage to fin tip wires, but adds wire aerials above and below the aft fuselage. It looks as if it varied with build, service and location!
  13. If it is kit 84138 then you almost certainly have all the parts in the kit do do any of the Eduard IXe builds - look at their website for other IXe kit instructions. Your kit has the same parts as the IXe profipack and the Velveta (Israeli) special.
  14. the Valiant Airframe Detail book (No 5 - Defiant) on Page 59 explicitly says that the aerial wires were deleted when the TR.1133A radios (VHF) were fitted, replacing the TR.9D. It merely states that this was on 'later machines".
