  1. Thanks, all, for your help. Have found a source for the decals for the prototype at 'parkes68decals' , and the seats are Martin Baker US10E-1 according to 'Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey: An Aeroguide Special' by Anthony Thornborough. Four nice picture of the seat in there.
  2. Don't know how I missed that. And there they are, indeed. Many thanks for the pointer. Much appreciated. Joe.\
  3. I don't but I'm sure the Aerofax (Jay's company) book does. Thanks, I have that. Bought it as soon as it came out. It's the part you quoted got me to ask. I'll have to see if I can find the copy of WAPJ.
  4. Now, that is a fun fact. I've only see one or two Osprey in flight, same for the XV-15. Currently working on Anigrand's XV-3 and XV-15, as well as Italeri's Osprey. Do you by any chance have photos of the Osprey interior? Curious about the ejections seats installed on the first three prototypes.
  5. Yes, that was my first thought. And I have a considerable selection of decals to choose from. But the outlines around emergency exits, the proper size flags, and dry transfer letters of the proper size and font are not so easy to source. So if I can find a premade set of decals, so much the better.
  6. Looking for decals for a 1/72 V-22 Osprey prototype in the all-white scheme, maybe with the dayglo panels. Any help appreciated. Thanks
  7. I'd think the interior of a Marine HTL-4 ( what the Navy called them) would be 'interior gray'. There are a few color pictured out there; https://www.airliners.net/photo/USA-Navy/Bell-HTL-4-47/344027 is an early one, gloss blue and gray interior. Here's a Sikorsky HOSS in gloss blue and gray: https://www.airspacemag.com/military-aviation/rotary-rescue-124602632/
  8. Thank you! That's terrific, and answers a lot of questions I had on the operation of the launch rails. Just great. Joe
  9. Many thanks for the information, gentlemen. All three open it is. Joe
  10. Were the doors to the three weapons bays on the F-102 always opened at the same time in an intercept, or were they/could they open individually as required?
  11. I have found the Army Aviation Museum to be very helpful, : https://www.armyaviationmuseum.org/ Haven't tried here, but the Army Medical Department Museum may be helpful: https://ameddmuseum.amedd.army.mil/index.htm Website of the guys who actually used the surgical pod in Vietnam: https://15thmedbnassociation.org/Photos/15th-Med-Bn-Photos5.aspx There are pictures of the pods, and at least one of the rear end with the door/ramp open. Same open ramp picture, plus one with a surgeon at work here: Information about its use about ha
  12. Reasonable offers will not be refused...... Joe
  13. Might want to edit the header....and I'd buy a 1/48 CH-54, too.
  14. Anybody doing/have done Monograms 1/48 B-29 as a 'Silverplate' and have a turret and gun retainer (parts 37 and 38) they didn't use and don't need? Happy to pay a little for the parts and postage. Joe
