Surprised that no one else has got one of these on the go. As some of you are aware I now model primarily as an aid for my aviation art, and being a Brit of a certain age the recent release by Airfix of the RN FG.1 has whetted my appetite to get a FG.1 on canvas this year. The Airfix kit is of the same standard as all their new toolings and does have a few issues, but is also fairly straightforward to build, and not too bad a fit. Not too much to see at this stage but it does prompt a couple of questions. My plan is to model the FG.1 as on the Ark Royal in 1976, and inspired by the TV series Sailor, which I fondly remember watching. What would be a typical load for a FG.1 carrying out standard patrol flights when the ship was operating in blue water ? I'm thinking 4x AIM-9 and a full compliment of drop tanks seems logical, but it is a wild gues only Anybody help ? P
