  1. Thank you all for your posts, very much appreciated! Jari, the video you postes shows some very interesting loadouts. The pic from your last post is one of the few images of the M-118 which I found on a Phantom. It seems that there is a GBU-10 on the left inboard pylon?
  2. I can't help with the exact number, but the title should be McDonnell F-4 Phantom: Spirit in the Skies.
  3. Thank you very much for the reply and the picture, Jari!
  4. Another question regarding the GBU-11: I wasn't able to find pictures of operational loadouts in Vietnam. Osprey's book Operation Linebacker I 1972 has an illustration on its cover, but there is only a short text of a mission using them. So my question: what was a typical loadout? 1 or 2 GBU-11, ECM pods,..? And which squadrons used them?
  5. Sorry for my late reply, somehow the notifications didn't work. Thanks for the info regarding the ambush pattern. I've already seen it on Tiger Bs with the Henschel turret. Now, with home office and social distancing etc., would be a good time to get the book about the 503rd... Thanks again and stay healthy!
  6. Sorry for this off-topic, but will this be a sheet dedicated to 533? Some impressive score boards were visible on photos found via Google. Thanks for your answer!
  7. Barracudacals and Ultracast were amongst the first places where I looked, but I came up empty. Thanks again to all for your ideas and suggestions!
  8. Thanks to all for your answers. I think I'll try to rework a "V" cowling.
  9. Yeah, my first try was the Eduard kit, and also their Brassin cowlings, but it seems they only have the later ones. Scratchbuilding it is then. Thanks for your answer!
  10. Hello all, I've got a question regarding the cowlings of Spitfires IX. There's a decal set by DK Decals, which covers Spitfires VI/VII/IX. It's 48014, profiles can be seen here: http://www.dkdecals.cz/48014_ZS.jpg Option 10 has a cowling with a short bulge, which is referred to as "initial IX cowling produced by Rolls Royce" here (last pic on the site): http://spitfiresite.com/2010/04/spitfire-mk-ix-xi-and-xvi-variants-much-varied.html So, my question: is this cowling available in 1/48? All my searches led to nothing. Thanks for your help in advance!
  11. Hello Auger, thank you for your answer. Somehow I totally missed your reply till now, sorry for that. I'll try a search with the key words you mentioned. Meanwhile, I learned about a book of the 503rd, maybe I'll give this a try too (about 700 pages). Thanks again!
  12. True, but I don't have these paints yet. Google says enamels over lacquers isn't a problem, but I'd like to make sure that this applies here too, as acrylic lacquers weren't explicitly mentioned.
