  1. Trigger, Good writeup. Elephant walks were also frequently done at NATO European bases during the height of the Cold War. Regards, Murph
  2. Mark, Nice to see some markings I can use with the Hasegawa Draken kit. Plus the F-100 would have had a Martin-Baker seat by that point, so that's always an unusual combination. Regards, Murph
  3. The base color by that point was Light Ghost Gray, but you could still find missiles with white warhead sections or aft fins. When we loaded up our jets in 1991 for Desert Shield I was amazed how many of the AIM-9Ms still had white fins. Regards, Murph
  4. They would have had C model wheels by that point. Regards, Murph
  5. Great info Jim, thanks for posting. Regards, Murph
  6. Low vis black is the way to go. The repaint process also meant that much of the original stenciling had disappeared by that point. Langley: Bitburg: Eglin: Eglin did seem to be a bit less standardized, you'll notice that at this point some Eglin jets still had the old style, full color arresting hook warning in the top picture (rest of the stenciling was in black though) and another has full color national insignia in the formation picture with the Saudi F-5 (albeit with the the stenciling in black). The insignia may have to do with being the Wing CC's "Gulf Spirit" jet though. Regards, Murph
  7. LINK here to modern French colors. Regards, Murph

    The 57th FIS never flew MSIP jets, so they did not carry AIM-120s or LAU-128s. After the 57th shut down the units that replaced them on a rotational basis did carry them though. I'm not sure why there's a debate. There are pictures of Eglin jets carrying them in the closing weeks of Desert Storm, and I know several of the Eglin pilots that flew with them and have posted as such. Regards, Murph
  9. Definitely in need of a resin correction set. The nose is all wrong. Regards, Murph
  10. The canopy piercer sits higher on the F-15E seats than on the F-15C seat. The F-15C also went to the black "lambs wool" covers for the seat cushion and back pad before the F-15E did. Outside of that, they're the same for modeling purposes. F-15C seat F-15E seat Regards, Murph
  11. It uses the AN/AWW-13 Advanced Data Link pod. LINK Regards, Murph
  12. It varies between aircraft and services, but LOWAT events are generally a required part of a pilot's currency. Regards, Murph
