Sanger has announced a 1/48th Douglas B-66 Destroyer vacuform kit Source: https://www.sangereng.co.uk/index.htm#Available Kits V.P.
All, I've just purchased Italeri's latest boxing of the RB-66B and am keen to make a start (subject to clearing the modelling bench of course!) Since I was a young lad, I've always been fascinated by the image below of a single RB-66 leading four F-105D's to their designated target. Photo's of Vietnam Destroyers in MNF seem a little thin on the ground so I'm hoping that someone can guide me to more photo's of these great looking aircraft during this conflict. Interestingly, the RB-66 above has both forward and aft fuselage Blade Antennas - which are normally seen on Camouflaged aircraft, but rarely seen on NMF birds. Any photo's, links or other suggestions to guide me through my build, would be gratefully appreciated. Cheers.. Dave
Deciding what to do for the future EB-66E build once I have cleared a space - its a big lump for a 72nd scale kit! Looks like a backate to a RB-66B is out due to lack of clear references to the camera positions and details, so OOB EB it is. Decided to go with the sharkmouth 54-438 simply because you don't see it often on such big birds. Nice picture of it p22 of the Aerofax monograph - but in 4 colour not 3 colour camo the kit instructions say. In itself not a problem except theres lack of an overall set of pix to complete the scheme. Can anyone help? .... It wasn't a one off panel or partial repaint as there are ages scattered shots of others with similar light+dark tan & greens but limited to partial side shots. If I could get a look from above then I could guesstimate the pattern using the standard 3 tone tan/field green/dark green. Note: appears to be JW coded birds only from what I've seen with the ref pic being 42nd TEWS/388TFW and maybe a Vietnam mod removed during a later stateside repaint (iaw with standard + kit scheme)
