  1. There is the Whirlybirds resin kit, but rather on the expensive side.
  2. I am currently building the AMP KC-10 Extender being painted in the SAC Grey/White scheme, and I am at the painting stage where I have run into a slight difficulty. I have the main part all painted up it is the Blue colour at the top of the nose that I am having a problem with. I will be using the Caracal decals for this build and they only supply a small section of the rear of the Blue with the rest being painted by myself. Although the decal is not fitted yet, this is where the problem has arisen in trying to match this colour. The instructions state the colour as FS 15102 and I have got the
  3. Those according to the description above in post by @pollie they are already included. It maybe that they are adding PE or resin in the improved kit.
  4. Thanks for your suggestion Dutch.
  5. Thanks, I thought that that might be the answer. Any colour suggestion Dk Grey, Black or something else?
  6. I am looking for a little help, and thought that this topic may be the best place at the moment. I am currently making the AMP KC-10 kit using this decal sheet to make one of the Grey/White schemes, but I have run up against a slight problem. I have got most of the kit painted and I have now started on the Blue around the cockpit. I have bought and started to use the Ammo-Mig paint No MIG-0229, which is said to be FS15102. But when I have painted it next to the photocopied mask that I using to get the painted area correct it looks too bright from the Blue on the mask. I will post some pictures
  7. Thanks for that, but I do not think that it is showing what I am after, but it does show in good detail the drogue housing which is not included in the kit and the APU. I am thinking that because the boom is lowered slightly this opens up the panel as shown. I did forget to say the I will have the boom stowed in the up position, so does this mean that the panel is down shown the latter part of the fairing?
  8. I am currently building the AMP kit of the KC-10 Extender and would like to ask a question about the boom operators area. I think what I mean is the cupola where the operator sits (I think) and its shape. The kit has a blunt ending to this with a largish gap between it and the actual boom equipment. Now I have seen this area with a more shapely end to the cupola almost touching the boom equipment. I have tried to look at some photos of this area and it seems that the latter part is on a panel that moves upward being hinged at the rear so (I think) that the boom operator can see what they are r
  9. Weapons load chart for F-16s during Desert Storm here:- https://www.dstorm.eu/pages/loadout/f-16.html dstorm.eu is a very good site for all things Gulf War related.
  10. But that will probably be 1/48th and I usually model in 1/72nd which I know that Kursada will often make.
  11. Hopefully this one from D Storm. https://www.dstorm.eu/pictures/nose-arts/s-3/159743_1.jpg https://www.dstorm.eu/pictures/nose-arts/s-3/159743_2.jpg
  12. Could there be some of the few Marine CH-53Ds that operated in D Storm even in just 1/72, as they had some interesting schemes.
  13. I have seen pictures of Mk20s fitted to RAF Tornados, but they were not used in anger as the war had finished. I wonder if this wa the same with the Italian Tornados.
  14. Like this one that went to the Poland and then to the museum at Kbely in Prague where I photographed it last year.
