  1. Light Admiralty Grey was also used as an upper surface camouflage color in RAN FAA A-4G Skyhawks, but also more commonly in British wheel wells as Giorgio has said.
  2. Wow - Both the Battlecruiser and the Aircraft Carrier look nice - I may just have to get the latter though.
  3. The original accurate miniatures tooling.
  4. Yes the more I look at the part the more I think it is a yoke for the tailwheel rather than using the single piece.
  5. Interesting, they certainly have taken optional parts to a theoretical limit. I note amongst the many other parts what appears to be a tail skid at Frame P no 71 and Cannons for a future Ib, IIb or Vb at frame R No 7.
  6. The lamps have been discussed before: ' From the Spitfire Site: Internal structure of the Type C wing as fitted to the Spitfire Mk. VIII. The leading edge fuel tank was peculiar to this mark and was not mounted on Spitfires Mk. V and IX. Interestingly, both this and the subsequent drawing (produced by Supermarine) of the Mk. VII show the downward identification lamp. However, this item was deleted in the Mk. VII & VIII production, by modification No. 746 issued on 1 May 1943. (note though reintroduction in the thread referenced above)
  7. They really also needed to correct AB1-1 to A81-1 as well as the colours of the roundels
  8. Oh thank goodness someone has finally realised a Vc will be a winner....... even better a Vc Trop. Decades of waiting but at least Eduard will do a nice job.
  9. Happens all the time unfortunately, the articles I wrote covering the 75 Sqn deployment on Op Falconer for Hyperscale ended up providing a fair chunk of both articles in Australian Aviation and the relevant Osprey volume on Hornets in OIF.
  10. This has a bit of info too - https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a538810.pdf
  11. You could start here : http://web.archive.org/web/20080309170823/http://www.hawkerbeechcraft.com/military/t-6a/not_pc_9.pdf although it looks like a lot of the relevant info has gone. Pity it was a very useful document to tell the two types apart
  12. Hi Diego, sorry for the slow response, I have been travelling, but if anyone can come up with what you need to do AURI and ALRI Beagles on your decals it will be Alex. Regards, Ken
  13. Now crying out for some AURI or ALRI decal options. Seems to be one of the few export operators not covered by the kit or Hi Decal.
  14. The BoB Museum at Tangmere was the only place where photos were not allowed of all the museums I visited in the Uk over the years and then only in the galleries with personal memorabilia etc. You could photograph all their aircraft both inside and out.
  15. One thing worth pointing out is the both BW examples posted are not Corsairs but Hellcats. It is generally accepted that Grumman used good matches for MAP colours in their production, whereas Vought and Eastern used ANA agreed matches. WRT to the Hellcats I think whilst there would be some expected colour difference as batches and paint production not to mention surface could change even with good matches, some of the tonal change could indeed be due fresh paint over older colours as Graham has said (and darker underneath colour from modified European roundels).
