  1. Does anyone have details on the camera installation of the Israeli-modified Gloster Meteor T7's, used during Operation Kadesh? So far, all I have is the picture on page 49 of "Gloster Meteor" by IsraDecal Publications. Thanks in advance Pete57
  2. https://www.lfmodels.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_5_73&products_id=3798 I'd be tempted...but Kora sells it on line at a whopping €66.00!

  4. I'd like to build "White 52" of the Israeli AF, the aircraft that started Operation Kadesh/Musketeer, by shooting down an Egyptian AF Il-14. Unfortunately the DP Casper "Musketeer & Kadesh, October 1956" sheet has only "White 50" and the Isra Decals sheet is next to impossible to find...
  5. Are the parts for the NF Mk 13 included in the NF Mk 11 kit? I don't have the kit yet, but looking at the instruction sheet on CMK's e-shop, the parts 8 and 10 could be the cockpit cooling intakes and the parts 2 and 5 could be the wider air intakes, and given that they are all four crossed out...

  7. Does anyone know the FS 595 equivalent of the medium grey used in the U.S. State Dept. aircraft, in the one-grey-wraparound scheme? Beech 1900D N85516 Beech 1900D N85516 UH-1H And is it the same grey their C-27J's were painted in? TIA Regards. Pete
  8. Hi 72modeller it helps and I have already downloaded the full MIL-STD-2161 in pdf. What I was referring to is just the color of the upper part of ALL the landing gear struts (I've since found out it applies to all the three members, not just the MLG). Check out the following links (F-35B) Wiki MLG Wiki NLG ...and compare the color of the same details in the F-35A... Wiki ...and F-35C rocketumbl.tumblr.com Pete
  9. I've been Google-image searching pic's of various details of the F-35B, in order to accurately build Italeri's 1/72 scale kit. I've noticed that, unlike the F-35A and F-35C, the F-35B's top portion of the main landing gear struts is painted what appears to be a medium/dark (metallic?) grey, instead of the customary gloss white. Can someone cast some light, i.e. FS color? TIA Pete
  10. Kari and Antti, thanks for the quick feedback. Best regards. Pete

    TO 1-1-4

    For the records, the TO 1-1-4 has been rescinded by the USAF several years ago (15-20, if memory serves me right), so recent/current color schemes are not covered. Best regards. Pete
  12. Antti, Slightly OT, do you happen to know if the Fouga Magister's were left natural metal or painted a silver varnish instead? TIA. Regards. Pete
  13. I use acrylics only. Lifecolor's UA 144 / FS *33448, labelled French Sandgrey / Camoscio Francese / Chamois Francais / Sand appears, to my Mk1 eyeball, to be reasonably close to the actual color. Regards. Pete
