  1. Available from Eagle Cal decals: https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/EAG48167
  2. You will find a picture of this one in "Mighty MAC" by Francillion, Lewis and Dunn, ISBN 0-85045-985-0 The top picture is the one that is in the book, and it's a C-130E, the unit is the 435TAW, Military Airlift Command, based at Rhein-Main AB, Germany, USAFE. They were used to fly supplies and supporting USAFE operations between Europe and the Middle East according to the caption. The color scheme created scheduling issues, as the dessert painted Herc's wasn't reserved for flights between Europe and the ME, so you would sometimes see dessert camo Herc flying support missions in the green
  3. Cool pic Finn (Y) The F-4 Phantom could carry the gun pod and fire from all stations. There are photos out there of 178FW 119FS F-4D's carrying SUU-23's with short end on the inner pylons just as much as centerline. There are also photos of F-4C/D's loaded with 5 gun pods in total. But the photo above is the first I've seen of an D airborne with the SUU-23 on the outer pylons. Cool non the less πŸ˜„
  4. Just dying for this to be released πŸ˜„
  5. Following this one as I have plans to do the same - but a MATS bird πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘
  6. Nope, they carry standard rails as seen on any F/A-18A/B/C/D.
  7. Not quite. the 52FW had 22FS and 23FS as their flying units, however when they lost one squadron they disbanded both and instead stood up 480FS as the new flying unit of the 52FW. Incidently, both the 22FS and the 480FS have red tailbands. This happened back on August 13, 2010. The leftover planes went to the 148FW 179FS Minnesota ANG.
  8. Line jets are good πŸ˜„
  9. Nice suggestion! Many MiG-killers in both 67FS and 44FS πŸ˜‰
  10. Paint? Model Master FS36076 can be used, but is slightly dark. I think there might be a manufacturer who released FS36170 straight from the bottle, but can't remember who. Then there is always the question on enamel vs. acrylics πŸ˜‰
