  1. Looks like M65s on the left, incorrectly ID'd as M117s note the lug welded on rather than the screw in type the M117 had: Jari

    F-101B soon from Kitty Hawk

    A couple of minor details the kit is missing, going by the instructions, first if doing a later version they had a two blade Data link antennas near the exhaust: also there was an optical sight that flipped up that was used for manual aiming. The kit has the housing but not the sight arms and lens. Changing the bulb was fun as it was on the bottom of the housing. Jari

    F-101B soon from Kitty Hawk

    The instructions are up: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10534092 they have AIM-4D which is correct, but they also included the AIM-4F/G which wasn't used. Jari

    A-10 and F-5 ordnance question

    I don't think the USAF ever used the F-5 in the ground attack role, other than in Vietnam with the early version. However there is this which lists the various weapons the F-5E could use: http://www.avialogs.com/index.php/en/aircraft/usa/northrop/f-5tigerii/to-1f-5e-34-1-1-f-5e-f-tiger-ii-aircrew-nonnuclear-weapons-delivery-manual-to-1f-5e.html the weapons were probably same for the A version.

    A-1h Skyraider Loadout, Dieter Dengler,

    Not much info but here is the Ranger Cruise Book from that time period: https://www.navysite.de/cruisebooks/cv61-65/index_005.htm most photos show two fuel tanks so that is a start. Jari

    Iron Hand A-4's

    Not one with the big bulge under the nose but a load of Shrikes and Bullpups with the Target detector device on the nose of the AGM-12 to give it a proximity (airburst) function: Jari

    High Drag MK82 in Vietnam

    I was referring to a modelling point of view, what you could see externally. Here is a AF F-4 with Mk-36s: note the nose fuze and they didn't have the white markings all the time. Jari
