  1. I confirmed in pilot manuals: P-36 carried flare gun in cockpit, first aid under radio hatch. P-40D/E models carried first aid in back under the radio hatch. P-40F, L, M, N show first aid in cockpit. I haven't been able to confirm which one for B/C models. Regardless, for canvas cover on that compartment I'd go with either dark khaki brown or dark OD green.
  2. Map/log book case is on the opposite side of the cockpit. Look at the restored P-40B at the Naval Aviation Museum at Pensacola. https://www.navalaviationmuseum.org/nnam/virtualtour/ It shows a small compartment with a spring-loaded sheet metal cover. Some construction blocks may have had a canvas cover instead. My best guess is it holds a flare pistol or maybe control locks. I'll see if I can find anything in my P-40 pilot manual. I'd paint canvas O.D. #3 (khaki) or O.D. #7 (army green).
  3. Here's another post on the subject. http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/179443-f-14-canopy-question/

  5. So what's going to be in the box? We know from the announcement that it will have a sprue of "dirty" wings (dropped flaps and slats). Will it also include Sprue A, the previously released "clean" wings? The announcement also mentions making a launch diorama so I would think they will also need to add a new tool nose gear kneeling in the launch position. I think it's safe to say the kit will include the following sprues from the F-14A: B (x1) Nose, upper fuselage, gun vents (2 grill) C (x1) Lower fuselage D (x1) Intakes, vertical stabilizers (L
  6. I found the Revell 1/32 F-4E decal sheet. I got it for the St Louis ANG markings so you can have the NJ ANG markings. PM me your address.
  7. I have exterior pics, cowling art and tail numbers from 07-08.
  8. I've done a lot of artwork for CVW-8, Desert Storm/'90's era. PM me if I can help!
  9. Yeah, I love that site too. Use it all the time. These sites are great for photos but no useful info on bureau numbers: https://www.floridamemory.com/find?keywords=f-14+final+countdown https://www.ar15.com/forums/general/-/5-1176097/?page=1 Here's what I've compiled from across the internet so far: 160382, AJ206, was used for filming at NAS Key West in June 1979 160391, AJ210, used at NAS Key West (Fun Fact: 160391 spent most of its life with VF-84 and was also filmed in "Executive Decision" in Oct 1995 as AJ202)
  10. So did anyone ever get BuNo's for the Final Countdown jets? I saw that 160382 was one. It's currently on display in Seattle with Modex AJ202. Anyone know any of the others?
  11. Anyone have a spare Bombcat sprue from a Dragon/DML 1/144 F-14D? http://www.ipmsusa.org/reviews/Kits/Aircraft/dragon_144_f14d_vf213/f14d_007.jpg

  13. Just found this online. Looks like what you said and matches the photo of 535; a centerline fuel tank, outboards with MERS loaded with a single Rockeye on the aft/bottom station, GBU-16/Skipper on one inboard.
