  1. Here you go! That's the best reference webpage about French tanks... In French
  2. There's at least one Wolfpak sheet with those markings.
  3. Maybe the video doesn't show the MiG crash or explode. And they may not have a confirmation by other means. There are other case like this, the one coming immediately to mind being Kilgus, for what should be the very first MiG kill of the war. He gunned a MiG in a dive and hit it just as he entered low clouds at less than 3000ft IIRC. Kilgus pulled up just in time, and the MiG must have gone in the drink, 99% chances for it. Yet the kill was never confirmed, and this despite the Vietnamese themselves acknoledged the loss of THREE -17, and there were no other USAF, or USN claims that day! Makes you wonder!
  4. My pleasure. Here's another link toward a study of French NATO camo, by Julie Ludmann. In French, but I'm sure you'll find a way to translate it. And you may ask for more information to Julie.
  5. Hi there, Great choice. Might be the aircraft flown by Aster Tolosa when she shot down an Eritrean MiG-29UB on february 1999.
  6. Hi there, I don''t want to spoil the party, as I think your choice is fine, but it seems that 8320 never scored a single confirmed kill. Huntley/Stearman's on 12/19/1972 remains unconfirmed, despite guncam showing the MiG in flame and loosing bits. Another star refer to Dalton/Graham kill on the same mission, but they were flying 8329. And the last is related to an emergency jettisoning of bombs & tanks that might have downed a pursuing MiG... There's at least one F-105 that scored three confirmed gun kill, 62-4284 , an F-105D. I wish you a happy new year, and really look forward to your build, as I think if only for Huntley/Stearman's unconfirmed, it deserved to be part of this GB.
  7. Hi, I might go for one of the lesser known MiG killer from VF-161.
  8. There's also a set from AK,  include desert camo colors.
  9. Any RB-47H will suits me well.
  10. Hi Brendon, I've just noticed the topic, and I'm interested. Is it still time to join? And what's the schedule? Thanks.
