......or did it get bogged down?

Might have- I think they should have stuck a plunger on the front as a fuse extender!

Boom boom!

 

Nice ones, fellers!

 

 

Still, there’s nothing like ‘per-cistern’ air attacks, to keep the enemy’s ‘heads’ down…

I thought the toilet bomber was referring to the 1st Nimrod that painted at St Mawgan when they changed from white/grey to the Hemp colour (late 70's). The painters got the wrong paint code or jumbled the numbers up. They thought that this couldn't be correct so flagged it up to check, only to be told to do as they were told. They went "if that's what you want, then that's what you get"!

So out rolled the  XV246 in a lovely shade of turd brown.  I was informed that the rival Squadron would stick a dayglo toilet seat on the fin to the great annoyance of the SEngO & the Squadron WO. This flew like this for sometime until it could get back into the paintshop again!

Hi there fellows/mates

 

The thing is that I got recently (about 10 days ago) this kit

 

https://www.scalemates.com/kits/hasegawa-51464-a-1h-skyraider--1271330

 

To my surprise this wonderful kit includes 2 sets of decals one for the Toilet bomber and one for the MiG killer A-1

 

So returning to the actual topic the front box shows the Skyraider with the toilet and with 6 Mk82 500 pounders with fuse extended (and I only have 3 left remaining at Hasewaga Weapon set I ) so I put it aside to wait the other Skyraider arrived

And that one arrived on Wednesday but still not enough weapons to dress all the Skyraiders on the workbench

 

I request for you kindest advice specially from the weapons loader specialists

 

Regards

 

Armando
