  1. Some - around 700 airframes is more than some I would think.
  2. US pattern bombs and depth charges Phil
  3. 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.
  4. Wow - Both the Battlecruiser and the Aircraft Carrier look nice - I may just have to get the latter though.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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)
  8. They really also needed to correct AB1-1 to A81-1 as well as the colours of the roundels
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. This has a bit of info too - https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a538810.pdf
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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.
