No it wasn't having a beer CC, c'est de rigeur during later stages of an evening

 

I am disappointed that no-one seems to have taken a look at the photographs that Andy posted to set me off on this course

 

ZA714 has no cover over the prominent boxes of stuff adorning her tail pylon

I suspect these are heat exchangers for all the stuff inside the pylon that gets, or might get hot


Also Andy note and remember she has no AN/ALQ thingmies aboard either

 

:)

 

But as it's you

Much as I did consider them I decided against FOD blanks when I decided to have the front antennae unblanked so I could tackle the fine wire triple aerials on each spikey bit, kinda seems daft to blank the rest of the airframe

 

The rotor droop has been on my mind but after having to sacrifice the rotors off two different kits to get to this point another decision made to funk the droop was on the cards some of the blades do have the flapped twist to them but I feared overdoing it

 

Anyone feels like drooping them for me can collect at Halifax on Sunday

 

:)

 

I think I have gone as far as I can now


And there is a Bilvedere to occupy my mind  ;)

Ah, actually, Bill - the thing on the rear pylon is part of the DAS, and always appeared 'paired' with the sponson-mounted ones...

....and as you've got them 'covered' on the sponsons, you had them right first time on the tail...

....so in the above pic (originally from page 2). both 'uncovered':

From page 3, on BL, 'covered':

Whilst the training airframes, such as 240 OCU's FI, generally didn't carry them at all:

Nice-looking AN/ALQs... 😉
