    RAF weapons of the 70's and 80's

    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.

    What's under the wing of this Tornado F.3?

    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.

    Aries 1/32nd tornado seats, etched straps

    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

    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,,,,

    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

    1435 Flight Phantoms - flare dispensers?

    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!")

    Operation granby pilot

    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

    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.
