  1. Just to echo the above the interior is 36251, although a lot of chipped paint and patch up's. For the rotor head I mixed 36440 with Silver about 50/50 when I did my AB205.
  2. Unslotted stabs, easily fixed by filling the slots and sanding.
  3. Yes it was, 48002 and some of 48005, however both were rectified pretty early on and going by stock turnaround you'd be very unlucky to get one now through a model shop. The early ones still creep up on Ebay and the like from time to time, and sadly there isn't anyway to know until you open the box.
  4. Sorry for not having any recent updates, however nothing has been missed. Build on a go 'very' slow due to flu and work. Hopefully get back into it this coming week.
  5. Doubt it as they are still at Lossiemouth I believe, waiting for the weather at Kef to clear.
  6. Well they're on their way over to you. They night stopped at my local RAF Lossiemouth last night and are due out to Keflavik this afternoon. Supporting the PDF is an A400M and a TBM 930. Surprisingly they are only travelling with ten AJ's meaning only one spare. they must have faith in their jets. Edit: there maybe a Transall with them as well, as one has just flown up the West coast of Scotland heading to Kef. Edit: there is no TBM930 with them, I was given duff info, it's actually a French Navy Falcon 50, don't know if will go as far as Canada or will turn back once the PdF cross all the open stretches of water.
  7. That's looking rather smart or should I say rather tatty. Looks fantastic and the weathering looks spot on
  8. Very nice, can't beat a bit of day-glo over camo on the shelve.
  9. Very nice indeed, makes a change from the drab greens and greys .
  10. The CFT's have nothing to do with increased fuel load therefore greater range during combat ops. A F-16 fitted with CFT's, underwing tanks, and a full loadout of weapons will not get off the ground. The only time you'll see both CFT's and underwing tanks carried together is when the a/c is in a long distance transit. With CFT's fitted you're carrying an additional 160 gal of fuel over a pair of standard 370 gal drop tanks. The most common CFT config is with the 300 gal Centreline tank fitted as well, which is carried to offer a better centre of gravity.
  11. Spain used the RF-4C, hard wing and round nose, you'll have to swap out the exhausts for short cans but they may be in your box already, If not I think I have a set of short cans Edit: you'll need the Navy style pointed inner wing pylons as well, I may have these as well
  12. I was in the same boat as you a couple of years back, needed the round nose when I had the square, then needed the square when I had the round. I'll check the spares box but I'm fairly sure I've only got one of the square and I need it.
  13. For a German RF swap the camera housing for the square shape (you can also build a Greek(ex Luftwaffe) jet this way) To build one of the 8 original RF's that were delivered directly to Greece in the 80's, swap the hard wing with the later slatted wing, but you'll also need the intake cheek and fin top RWR fairings.
  14. From what I've heard the CFT's don't alter performance drastically if at all at all. The main reason behind them was to free up stations 4 and 6 in order to carry more stuff that goes "bang".
  15. ..... and don't forget that the Hawk SAM was adapted for use by the Iranian F-14's as well.
