  1. Nimrods carried Harpoon in the anti-ship role as well as nuclear BDU depth charges,iirc they were also trialled for SHRIKE or HARM around the time of the Falklands war.
  2. It's not a standard BOZ pod in the photo,looks like a dummy one,flare pack's been faired over as well as the chaff chute,and the blue band around the nose.
  3. I used these seats on my GR4 & they are the mutts nuts!...Don't forget tho that the headbox is different on the GR1 to the GR4.Some gentle sanding fixed the shape differences,,,, http://acc.kitreview.com/paragon32025reviewjl_1.htm
  4. He's just ate a Gurkah curry.... The cross on top of the helmet is actually not white,it's a silver reflective tape,you may also see small squares of it on the Koch fittings on the life vest so the growbags can find them easier,,,,
  5. Did the canopy arrive mate?....Should have gotten it by now as I gave it to the postie to put in the bag as he was emptying the postbox last Saturday lunchtime...
  6. lol...Beat me to it....Basicaly the is a key on a bit of string that is inserted into a keyhole to the left of the HUD which enables the weapons system
  7. Cracking work mate,just a note about the map,I'd put it on the other side as the's also a MASS warning flag there (the yellow/black striped flag) iirc.... http://i1312.photobucket.com/albums/t530/mervyn7451/95A0C9EC_5056_A318_A85EAC050906250D_zpsmahblj6g.jpg
  8. I should have somewhere.
  9. What he said....Ah the Falklands,where Bennies are........................"Stills" (we were told we couldn't call the locals Bennies (after Benny from Crossroads) so we called them 'Stills' as in they're 'Still Bennies!")
  10. Dont forget the Tornado life jacket is different than that worn by the Jag & Bucc crew's as it has sleeves,the crews also often wore locally made survival vests as well under the main life vest,usually ran up by the squippers iirc
  11. For pilots of what aircraft?...The Tornado pilots is different from the Jaguar pilots which is different from the Bucaneer ect...
  12. Sending you the canopy tomorrow mate.
  13. The red on the gun muzzle isn't actually a stripe mate,it's a sort of bung.You can see it's red on the RAF one & yellow on the German one... http://i1312.photobucket.com/albums/t530/mervyn7451/231210763_5407d67248_z_zpsibrbbkn3.jpg http://i1312.photobucket.com/albums/t530/mervyn7451/ZA452CannonMuzzle_zpsuqnyan3n.jpg Many thanks to the phototgraphers of the images.
