  1. The radios seem to be UK/VRC 321s and TURF 25W from the photos I've seen online, so they would use an HF antenna base rather than the TUAAM and VHF base. Cheers Phil
  2. Hi, I'm not trying to cause confusion but I thought the Tamiya Camel Yellow was closest to USN Chrome Yellow and the USAAC yellow was less orange. I have seen a model where RAF Golden Yellow was used on a USAAC P-12 Regards Phil
  3. Hi, I'm nearing the completion of the Churchill AVRE Mk. III and wanted to do it as Loch Ness from 82 Sqn on D-Day, but the Mk. IV boxing with the fascine frame has Loch Ness as an option in it. I found a photo of what is meant to be Loch Ness on its side on D-Day (a Mk.IV but no markings visible). Can any one suggest markings for a Mk.III of 82 Sqn, please? Cheers Phil
  4. Hi, I'm building the AFV Club Churchill Mk III AVRE and I want to do it as it would have appeared on D-Day. I read somewhere that the applique armour wouldn't have been fitted on D-Day and wondered if that was correct? Also, I believe that the trackguards would have been fitted complete and not had the middle section nearest the turret missing. I'm not in a rush as I'm currently doing battle with the bolts/rivets on the sides of the hull. Cheers Phil Evans
  5. The O/100 must be close to release as the website has the instructions, colour schemes and detailed photos now.

    Terry has put up a new kit news update, which is good to see
  7. I see that Wingnut Wings have 2 new boxings in their series of aircraft of the aces on pre-order. 32605 Fokker D.VIIF "Hermann Goering" 32608Sopwith Snipe "William Barker"
  8. USAF Air Defence Command had a program called College Dart to provide TOPGUN type training.
  9. I see that the 32068 F.1/Dr.1 (early) has what looks like the artists draft of the boxart. It looks very different and it could be Voss and 56 Sqn.
  10. The boxart for 32069 Fokker Dr.1(Late) and 32051 Handley Page 0/100 is on the Wingnut Wings website
  11. www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234920753-valient-and-blue-steel This was a previous discussion on the topic (yes, I know I need to learn how to post links and images!)
  12. Hi James I reckon the serial number of the Horsa is PW656 as noted next to the aircraft type. Edit- If it is PW656 it was written off on this operation according to the Aviation Safety Network (www.aviation-safety.net/wikibase/140605) Good luck exploring what I am sure is a fascinating story Phil
  13. Don't forget the Samson recovery vehicle. Good reply about the Royal bit as that is a bit of a pet peeve of mine but I can easily understand how confusing it looks from the outside. Like you say, the Navy is Royal, the Airforce is Royal so why wouldn't people expect the Army to be Royal?
