  2. Microscale/Superscale did a number of CVW sheets over the years which usually each featured two, three or four different aircraft types - some examples: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/microscale-72-302-carrier-air-wing-2--128862 https://www.scalemates.com/kits/microscale-72-299-carrier-air-wing-3--134488 https://www.scalemates.com/kits/microscale-72-316-f-4-and-a-7-carrier-air-wing-4--121672 https://www.scalemates.com/kits/microscale-72-333-carrier-air-wing-7--629842 https://www.scalemates.com/kits/microscale-72-420-carrier-air-wing-9--1092725#
  3. Some shots of Lakenheath birds here: http://www.f-100.org/hun020.shtml And some more here: https://www.thunderstreaks.com/spotting/spotting-in-the-u-k/#prettyPhoto The vast majority show the aircraft carrying tanks, but little else...
  4. I researched this some time ago for a similar project in 1/72, and with info from various sources identified the 91st TCS aircraft that carried Lt Winters' stick as 42-100646 L4-E, Chalk Number 67... ....this guy's done a diorama in 1/48: http://www.hudsonairdepot.com/WintersStick.aspx Don't know if this is the site you're referring to in the preceding post, but it has the formation plan and aircraft idents for the drop: http://www.6juin1944.com/assaut/aeropus/en_page.php?page=s12
  5. C Scale did a white metal set back in the 80's, as seen here: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/c-scale-ac24-hercules-ec130e-rr-conversion--161115
  6. Bump to prevent falling off the bottom of the page! Still seeking that elusive additional set of BuNos...

  8. PA EC-130Es attended a number of RIATs at RAF Fairford during the 1980s: A few aerial/antennae detail shots:
  9. I recall buying most of Hasegawa's 1/72 weapons sets when they were released back in the early 80's, as they were next level compared what came in many kits of the time - but subsequently, I used hardly anything out of them... ....I still have one air-to-air set in my stash, from which I appear to have used only a couple of pairs of missiles - I also still have the loading, ground support, and pilots sets - but all the other sets were disposed of some time ago... ....as I pretty much exclusively build helicopters now, I've little use for what I've still got, let alone the various ba
  10. Still in need of one more pair of the "stylised" BuNos '157756' for the USMC "Presidential" VH-53D on Microscale/Superscale 72-445... ....if anyone's able to help, please let me know - I'm in the UK...

  12. There's a Flight Colours set which includes a pair currently on eBay UK: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/124835479574?hash=item1d10c64016%3Ag%3Arz8AAOSwHTFhCB~D&LH_Auction=1
  13. Over the years there have been various 'starter sets', which have included glue, paints and a brush... ....but this is easily the most comprehensive that I've ever seen - complete with knife, spray can of matt varnish, and even a gridded plastic sheet to work on: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/testors-4076-b-2-stealth-bomber-kit--138145
