  1. Ian, Looking at period photos you'll find that Hunters mainly carried the smaller tanks on the inner pylons, the use of rocket pods on the outer pylons is later than the 56Sqn use of Hunters (remember they converted to Lightnings in about 1961). Hunters of that period used tiered rockets similar to but not the same as seen on late WW.II aircraft however, as 56 was a Fighter (e.g. Air Defence) squadron, I doubt they carried rockets very often. I'd go with the inner pylon and the small tank only.

    What have you purchased / been given

    What flavour jam?
  3. It never occurred to me that a float plane could be a bit of a tail sitter - useful tip that! Great work so far Jerzy.
  4. Thanks Jabba, likewise sorry to hear of your misfortune. There's a lot of stuff to clear first
  5. Thanks Patrice, I want to get it sorted, if we can get it done sooner I'll be happy, I'd started the Thunderbolt before I found the water too!
  6. I’m afraid I’m going to have to withdraw from this GB (I’m withdrawing from all GB’s), we found some water on the floor of the basement which is where I do my modelling.  We need to find where this water is coming from and put it right before autumn comes which means emptying the contents of the basement and potentially taking up the flooring. Any modelling is now on hold until this is sorted, I’m gutted because I only get to do any modelling between June and the end of September. If we get this sorted in good time I may re-join later.

    What music are you playing ? Part IV

    A very fine album, can't decide which I like more, Rattus or Black and White
  11. Not over my house but on the way home, I saw the distinctive shape of a Saro Scout, a teeny-weeny helicopter of yore! It was heading towards Eastliegh.

    Decal sets suggestion open topic.

    That's QinetiQ, supposed to be said as Kinetic by the clever trousers consultants who came up with it but referred to as Qwinty-Que by those of us who like to take the piddle!

    What have you purchased / been given

    RAF nickname for 111Sqn or Treble One which naturally morphs into Tremblers.
  14. There's some details in the EM37 book, I'm away from my references right now and a translation will take me a few days but I'm sure I can provide the details

    Nice picture and thanks for sharing. The Mossies aren't B.20's though, these have twin-stage Merlins, B.20's had single stage Merlins, that and the overall PRU Blue colour scheme would suggest PR.34's. A check of the serial numbers would confirm.
