    Is that at Collin's baracks? She was hanging from the roof last time I saw her.

    No problems James, Day glo lid? not impossible, but not the norm I'd say. It's hard to see on the photo but the helmet the guy in the centre is holding looks silver(?) to me. John

    Not the best photo in the world but a group of IAC Vampire crew having a pre flight briefing, you can just see the rocket rails under the wing. I have, or think I have a photo of an IAC T.11 firing rockets over the range. I've not found one yet with tanks but thinking about it they would be largely unnecessary given the size of the Republic and even flying to the UK would need no external fuel, plus the extra FAG index, that not to say they never did, but it must have been rare. AS for colours, they had red and later dayglow in the standard RAF style. John

    The flying kit was standard RAF so blue grey flying suit silver Mk.1 helmet with blue gray or green cloth helmet. I'l take a look at my photos to see what I have re tanks. John

    Tugging at my heart strings , Canberra WJ636

    Thanks Rob, it is a bit of a typical british lash up, the early B.2's were very simple and quite spaten affairs, but as time went by and the roll's got more complex more and more kit squesd in it got quite messy, Uncle Sam doesn't like messy! The B.57A was much tidier my big grudge is the deletion on the overhead windows, it was to save weight I know, but it must have been even more claustrophobic for the GIB. John

    Thanks Roger, I'm having a mojo hiatus at the moment, everything feels much more work than it should be, but I will press on! John

    So what have I been doing? I've started to work on the cockpit. The CA kit comes with a nice resin bomb sight head, unfortunately this isn't needed for the TT.18, so off to the spares box it goes! As you can see from the above photo I'm intending to replace the same part with part of the Airfix kit., this part needed modifying too so it would more closely represent the reale area in the nose. I also cut out the bomb aimers couch from the B(I)8 to add to the nose. I've done a bit of dry brushing on the cockpit I've now turned to the wheels, I've used the Airfix B.2 wheels as they are by far and away the best ones around, as they come but they could still be improved with a bit work. One of the things that needs doing is to open up the spokes. More soon! John

    I've had a look at my French Jaguar, I've not seen one with chaff/flare dispensers under the fuselage, that's not to say they aren't any but I've not found them. John
