  1. There is a photo of that aircraft in Schiffer Publishings Northop's T-38 Talon from 1974. The aircraft has the early style headrests and has a spoked front wheel. Other photos dated 1976 shows other Navy T-38's still had the early style headrest. It also still had the USAF on the bottom left wing as it is visible on the landing gear door. Other T-38's also still had the national insignia on the bottom right. Hope that helps.
  2. Definitely not FS36440. I always thought they were dark gull gray FS36231.
  3. I've tried Eduard and GT resin. I even thought about building up the opening on the kit with strip styrene but the opening would be to thick. It is going to be something that is difficult to correct.
  4. From what I can tell the burner cans are the same or if different it is hard to tell the differences. Be advised I haven't found any aftermarket burner cans that fit properly. The exhaust cans are extremely tight fitting to the exhaust openings on the real aircraft. All the burner cans I have tried are to small leaving a much larger gap around the opening. If I ever get around to building the model I will probably just have to live with that inaccuracy.
  5. Aggressor TA-4s used the 150 gallon tank on the centerline station on a regular basis. There are quit a few photos out there with TA-4s carrying them.
  6. How about 1 from a utility squadron with the dark grey fuselage, yellow wings and tail.
  7. They are the same. Most of the G modifications involved adding instruments to the coaming and windscreen framing above the instrument panel.
  8. Comparing photos to the model I'm thinking the square window on the crew entry door is to small. That immediately stood out to me. And I'm not a rivet counter.
  9. The 552nd AWACS wing at Tinker AFB flew a couple of 707-331Cs designated as TC-18Es from 1984 until around 1998. They both originally carried civilian N131EA (construction number 18713) and N132EA (construction number 19566). They were eventually given the USAF serials of 84-1398 and 84-1399 respectively. They carried standard markings of the E-3. The control surfaces were white. They were scrapped at Will Rogers Airport in the early 2000s. They also operated at least one other TC-18E 81-0893. Not sure when this one was taken out of service. The 84-1398 retained its passenger windows.
  10. EB-57Es used the Douglas ESCAPC. It had a dual overhead ejection handle like those fitted to the F-4 seats. Also the B-57G was also outfitted with the Douglas seat.
  11. According to The Modern Phantom Guide yes they should be on the bottom also. I was at the Hill AFB Museum and I remember looking at a F-4D or C and they were on the bottom.
  12. Looking at Don Logan's book F-4 Phantom IIs of the USAF Reserve and Air National Guard all the F-4Cs from Hawaii had the reinforcement plate.
  13. I read an online article somewhere that there is concern about an increasing cancer rate for crews of fighter aircraft because of radar emissions. That is why the canopies are tinted on certain aircraft to reflect electronic emissions such as the EA-6B and E-2. I think the windscreen is tinted to reflect radar emissions and will probably become more common.
  14. I have never seen a photo of a SU-7 with the flaps down or speed brakes out while parked. If you look at Soviet aircraft the norm was everything up and closed.
