    RLM 83 Dunkelblau ?

    Having read a few of Paul Lucas' articles I do find most of them a bit 'amateurish' (in lack of other words). In his recent article on RLM83 he is jumping to conclusions again and again without substantial evidence. Also, he does not consider other options, e.g. when an intelligence report states "blue-grey on the top surfaces..." it might as well (or perhaps most likely) have been RLM75 instead of RLM24 or the blue RLM83. In other words, he is trying to hard to conclude that the use of a blue (RLM24 or similar) was widespread and thereby ruining a good genuine analysis that might actually shed some light on this subject.

  2. Danish Hunters would be awesome to have (correct) decals for. Let me know if you need any help! Jens
  3. Nice finish, but that mirror imaged tail code on the starboard side puzzles me... Jens

    Danish F100 ejection seats

    They were MB Mk. DE-5 if that is of any help. Jens

    McDonnell Douglas TF-15A

    Not really. The upper or lower surfaces (don't recall which) were FS15450. Same colour but different sheen. Note the airbrake is the early, shorter type with a strake in the middle. Jens

    Starfighters - intake interior colours

    The Danish Starfighters had dull aluminum coloured intakes except for the leading edge and intake cone. Jens

    Reverse painted SEA camouflage, I'm curious ;)

    It's Print Scale... They are not known for accuracy. I have a picture of F-4E 67-0210 with those exact markings, and it clearly shows the standard scheme, i.e. the Print Scale profile is reversed. Jens

    Skunkworks (was Kinetic) F-16xl 1/48

    I already started mine (and bought another F-16XL). Might as well finish it now. Jens

    Unusual Danish Navy MH-60R Stores Question

    We don't have any weapons yet except for 12.7 mm GAU-21 and a 7.62 machine gun for the cabin door. You can see some awesome pictures from the shooting range here: Jens

    Unusual Danish Navy MH-60R Stores Question

    I am not sure whether the rack is removable on a standard USN Romeo. Our were delivered without it, and without the dipping sonar too. I believe there are political intentions to fit some of our Romeos with the anti-submarine gear some time in the future. We do have a deck lock harpoon system á la the NH90 fitted in order to operate to/from the Danish Navy vessels. Our Romeos were delivered without the extra window but have been retrofitted since. That video was shot in our old hangar. My office was right up there in the background. Jens

    Unusual Danish Navy MH-60R Stores Question

    There are a number of differences between the standard USN and the RDAF MH-60Rs, one of them being the lack of sonar buyo equipment. Instead we have an extra seat in the cabin. The pod is an ELRP as mentioned earlier. It is for the crew (even though they have individual dinghies) and passengers. Jens

    A-6E tram intruder, 1/48, desert storm

    Anytime Glynn. The intake duct is probably the one on the aft port fuselage. You can see a grey oval where I have filled the panel line on my A model. I was about to start another Intruder yesterday - this time an A-6E TRAM - but I need to found out what changes/corrections to make first. I will let you know if I dig up something useful. Jens

    A-6E tram intruder, 1/48, desert storm

    Don't forget to move the inner wing fences to the correct position. The white lines are filler, and as you can see I have moved mine further inboard: Jens
  14. Except that doesn't make any sense. A TER can carry up to three Mk. 82. So, either it was a MER, or there were only two Snakeyes on the TER. Jens
  15. Yes, AFAIK only the A-4Q used Mk. 82 Snakeyes. The A-4C and P used the other bombs. Jens
