    Checked the photos I have found of 5148, 5149, 5150, 5207, 5206 and 5205 and neither of these carry crew names either.

    The F-35A will not carry crew names while in Norwegian service due to how we are orgainized. This is purely a US-thing 😉

    Could I suggest that you substitute 5087 with 520x as 5087 has been done already please? Also the number styling on these 520x-series is out of the normal making for more uniq markings? And 5145 with 5148, 5149 or 5150 as these are the first F-35A's flying in Norway with 332sq?

    Plastic only kits availability

    Shipping charges are in many cases governed by the postal service, but up to you

    Plastic only kits availability

    Ebay should answer your call. Depending on brand you're looking for, you can get Revell 1/48 P-51D for CDN 13, ICM for USD 13, Hobby Boss for USD 12,99, Testor for USD 3,25, Hasegawa for USD 20+, Tamiya for USD 20+ So I wouldn't worry about getting a kit without decals, with these prices you can bin the kit decals any day.

    VT F-16C-25 PIDS pylon question (with GBU-31)

    Wish we were as lucky in 1/48 😆 Shull's PIDS were very nice, but modeled on Hasegawa's pylons and hence had too small supports. If he ever restart production a PIDS based on the Tamiya would be most welcome (Y)

    AV-8B Plus - Loadouts with Litening Centerline

    It does 🙂 Should be part X11 if I'm correct; https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10137189/70/3 It doesn't show in the instructions, but you can also mount it by opening the cover between the gun pods, hence making a true real-life loadout

    AV-8B Plus - Loadouts with Litening Centerline

    Depending on timeframe and mission, you can choose between GBU-16, GBU 38/54, AGM-65 Maverick, LAU-10, GBU-32, GBU-12, usually single weapon per pylon. To increase loads, the USMC had the ITER developed, bascially a standard TER with the necessary bus to facilitate GBU38/54 JDAM carriage. This allows for multiple weapons to be carried on station 2/6 You will find some of the photos with above loads through this google search; https://www.google.com/search?q=AV-8B%2B+USMC+with+weapons+photos&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiel-yOqefaAhVFDZoKHUSSARgQsAQIJw&biw=1536&bih=686

    The AIM-120's were flown only the very last few days before the end of Dessert Storm hence carried but not used.

    LAU-128/129's were introduced just after Dessert Storm in 1991, initially only for AIM-120 carriage. Later this evolved to include all types of AIM-9's too. This is also a bit unit-dependant, as different unit got it at different times. Which unit are you looking for initially?
