  1. Just received my ordnance today. Less than two weeks shipping to Scotland🤩 BSU-85 & -86 LGTR LAU-7 LAU-68 pods Some of the best quality aftermarket items I have ever seen. Seriously fine details and quality, packaging and presentation. Look out Eduard Thank you Mark
  2. Just when I think I've got a basket ready to go... And along comes another top quality item 😄
  3. Looks like your loadout is sorted now, BSU-86/b Available From Flying Leatherneck Models
  4. Hopefully BSU-86 is on the cards as a Navy/Marine load. I had a look at my old Flightpath resin BSU-49, just as I remembered it, casting a bit squint and not sure of the shape.
  5. I like your pins for the pylons, clever idea. I have this in the stash and had planned it loaded for training, still no BSU-86/b tails yet in 1/48
  6. You don't see many Green Lightnings, this is the best Ive seen by far
  7. Apologies if you've already read this over on Zone Five, but Eduard have the Snakeyes with Mk15 Fins listed as their next release in March http://www.eduard.com/store/out/media/InfoEduard/archive/2014/info-eduard-2014-02EN.pdf THird page from the end
  8. This is going on over on Zone Five too. I've just got my hands on a set of these and the I have a few obs The fins look more like the Mk14 version fitted to the Mk81, however the dimensions of the body is consistent with other Mk82. The leading edge of the widest fins is sharply raked back and the trailing edge almost perpendicular to the central axis! This is not how I have seen any pics of Mk15 fins where the leading edge is almost perpendicular and the trailing is is the raked one. If you want a Mk15 fin, a simple fix with styrene strip if you are already going to have to do the notche
  9. Slight digression but since you asked :) Living as I do within stones throw of the North Sea I wouldnt trust the RN to find their way out of port HMS Superb grounding in the Red Sea in May 2008. HMS Tireless struck an iceberg while on Arctic Patrol in May 2003. HMS Trafalgar grounded on Fladda-chuain in November 2002. HMS Triumph grounded in November 2000. HMS Victorious grounded, while surfaced, on Skelmorlie Bank in November 2000. HMS Trenchant grounded off the coast of Australia in July 1997. HMS Repulse grounded in the North Channel in July 1996. HMS Trafalgar grounded off the Isle
  10. No but when we last had a Rusky warship off the coast at Lossiemouth there was no Maritime Patrol aircraft to shadow and the nearest frigate was 600miles away in the south of England. Other than QRA launches to intercept Bears which are becoming more common in recent years. Ivan could zig zag in between Offshore platforms and no one could do a thing about it. Kind of makes Ministry of Defence an oxymoron
  11. I have the old D model in the stash, panel lines are wearing very shallow and there is no rivet detail on the panels. Does the Greek Blk52 show any improvement? BTW I have pwmp Norwegian paratail, and it is very nicely made Rgds
