    AD-4W Skyraider, how to... ?

    I am (slowly) building an AEW1 using the Aeroclub conversion and Hasegawa kit. The Aeroclub parts are very well done with fine panel lines and fit perfectly with the donor Hasegawa bits, I am very impressed. Recommended if you can find one. Richard in NZ

    HMS Eagle colour pictures Gannets Sea Hawks etc

    The photo of Skyraider AEW1 WT987 is brilliant; the yellow Suez stripes only applied, with the dark blue taking the place of black and underwing serials still visible on the blue sections. I have not seen that before, though I am sure other BMers will have. Richard in NZ

    Hawker Hart / Audax? K5234 - help sought

    Thank you very much gentlemen. I think my uncle was responsible for the 17.5.39 episode! I will see if I can post the photo. Richard in NZ
  4. I have a photograph of the rear fuselage of K5234, which my uncle crashed in 1938 or 1939. It has a squadron marking partly visible on the rear fuselage. I am without any relevant references, and would be very grateful for any help in identifying: 1. Aircraft type - Hart or Audax I think. He always said the Hart was his favourite aircraft. 2. Squadron? May be 113? 3. Squadron marking on fuselage? Many thanks in advance. Richard in NZ

    Tempest VI / 6 question

    I am a little short of reference material. What colour were the two gas bottles on the fuselage upper decking behind the pilot's headrest? TIA. Richard in NZ
  7. I built this kit in the same colours in or about 1968. Brilliant stuff, well done! Richard in NZ

    1/72 Beaufort and Hart family. Is there an echo in here...? Richard in NZ
  9. The RNZN did not use the Devon. The boxtop illustration is of a "warbird" (which war please?) current civilian Devon formerly used by the RNZAF. Magua87's post shows just two of many attractive RNZAF schemes and variants. Richard in NZ
  10. Serge I have one spare, PM me. I am in New Zealand. Richard in NZ
  11. Seriously, do we need to be SHOWN how to fix something as minor as this? I thought this was a forum for modellers. Jeez... Richard in NZ

    FAA Skyraider AEW1 question

    Thanks TT, I agree and will go with that. Richard in NZ

    FAA Skyraider AEW1 question

    As the aircraft had no guns, were the underwing cartridge chutes covered over or simply left as they were? I can find no photo which clearly shows the area. Thanks for your help. Richard in NZ

    Academy 1/72 F-4B Phantom?

    Thanks Homebee. Odd, I thought it would be a natural follow-on to the J, Hasegawa being old(ish), expensive and hard to find. Richard in NZ

    Any news about a 1/72 F-4B from Academy? Richard in NZ
