    PC-9 / Texan II

    PC-9 / Texan II

    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
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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).
  7. The one thing that is really really really needed is a good British 540lb GP bomb - then a Herrick Harrier will finally be doable properly. Dmitry/Resikit - you can probably print money with a new one.
  8. US Army Tractor? I recall this kit previously https://www.luckymodel.com/scale.aspx?item_no=TND-35001 They also do a range of Hetzers.
  9. I see that the 1/48 Mustang is also being released as an early D with the filletless tail.

    Fairey Battle TT

    This is turning into a bit of a history lesson, but most people do not know that the Republic of Ireland remained a member of the British Commonwealth until April 1949. What are known as the "troubles" between the Provisional IRA and the British Government did not flare until the late 1960s and into the 1970s, within Northern Ireland, a part of the United Kingdom, although they benefitted from safe haven to an extent in the Republic of Ireland (the independent South).

    Not in this case - it was because the Republic of Ireland was officially neutral in WWII and international law demanded that equipment operated by belligerent countries be impounded for the duration of hostilities if they enter neutral territory.
  12. There is no mention of Raiders in original Indonesian archival sources. That War Thunder link is rubbish too, Indonesia never received Spitfires, F4Us or P-40s. It did take over P-51s and B-25s for the Dutch as part of the hand over sovereignty to the RIS in December 1949. I have to agree with Arawasi commentary.
  13. I think you will find in the F Type shown In your photo has the two front wheels spread wider and the front squared off, whereas the earlier B model has the two front wheels mounted close to each like a castor wheel. This gallery shows the difference in the two models: You may find this useful too as it has all the Type F specs: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1950s-Clark-equipment-co-Clarkat-towing-tractors-original-sales-literature-/302888663134?nma=true&si=kMhxlWWirFwGBEM4JxHGxNJOTxE%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
