  1. Yes, AFAIK only the A-4Q used Mk. 82 Snakeyes. The A-4C and P used the other bombs. Jens
  2. They carried Mk. 82 Snakeyes. Pictures show six of them fitted on a MER, but I have read that they only carried four (on a c/l MER). Jens
  3. Nice and fast progress! This is the first time I have seen the usual Eduard off-coloured PE parts make sense; I have counted seven shades of green in the cockpit of a Danish RF-35, Jens

    RDAF F-16 MLU Recce Pod (MRP)

    These pictures are from 2006. What timeframe do you wish to depict? Jens
  5. Very nice progress! There is a golden rule when building Harriers: Attach the nose wheel and the outrigger wheels before fitting the main wheels. This way it is possible adjust the height of the main wheel so that all wheels touch the ground. Jens

    1/48th Starfighter main doors

    The Belgian F-104s had bulges main gear doors. Canadian CF-104s didn't. Jens

    Will they be released under the Vingtor label? My initial plan was to use as many decals as possible from the kit (or other kits) and then cut some masks for the rest. Luckily it didn't have that many markings. Btw, if you have the Kinetic F-16A/B you can use the B parts and still build an A from the Kinetic kit. Better and cheaper than scrapping a D kit. I got my spare canpy etc. from a friend who once scrapped a couple of D's. In reality, the only parts worth using are canopy+frame, rear cockpit and the bulge/fairing behind the canopy. The shape of the front fuselage of the XL is different from the standard A/B/C/D, so using the entire front fuselage from the D might not be worth it. Jens

    It will be painted in the Ferris scheme. Jens

    So Pappy, did you ever get any further with this build? I have just started building one myself, although I quickly decided to build the XL-2 instead, using a Kinetic B/D canopy donated by a friend. Your build is still very inspiring, so I would like to see if there has been any progress. Jens

    Saab Draken colours

    This is what I used for my first Swedish Draken (Draken build thread): Humbrol 77 lightened with Humbrol 96 for the blueish colour, Xtracolor FS14086 lightened with Faded Olive Drab for the green colour, and Xtracolor FS16173 for the lower surfaces. HTH, Jens

    1/48 Tamiya Lanc landing gear

    Scale Aircraft Conversions landing gear sets are a complete and utter waste of money. Period. Jens

    Revell 1/48 Tornado intakes

    So, in order to make near-correct intakes one would need to remove the foremost two thirds of the intakes and the completely rebuild them around the inner surfaces of the fuselage? Now that would be interesting! Jens

    Revell 1/48 Tornado intakes

    I am having problems getting it to stick to the surface of the subject that needs putty, both before and after drying. I have not had any succes in sanding it back to a nice smooth surface. For me Tamiya white putty works so much better. Jens

    Revell 1/48 Tornado intakes

    Thanks for the replies. I briefly tried the Perfect Putty approach, but once again I was reminded why I never use that stuff (it has never worked for me). I have decided to try stever219's approach to the outer walls and then have a look inside to see if guillaume320 and Muzz are right. Jens
