CD144010 - 1/144 EC-121 Warning Star

Recommended Posts

CD144010 will be a 1/144 scale sheet combining all of the EC-121 markings I earlier released in 1./72 scale, with some 1/144 scale additions such as windshield decals.

Oorah! Can't wait!  Kursad, does this mean you will renumber the RAF Hercules anniversary sheet?

Yes, good catch. The RAF Hercules sheet is still going to happen, but the design work is stalled as I need to get references on some aspects of the markings.

Hey Kursad.  Quick question about the 1/144 EC-121 decals.   Any room to include PR-21, Navy EC-121 shot down by the North Koreans in 1969?   The aircraft, Bureau number 135749, c/n 4316, bore the tail code "PR-21" and used the radio call sign Deep Sea 129.  From what I've been able to pull together, it had been painted white upper and the light grey lower vs. the engine grey from earlier photos at the time of the shootdown.  See links.

Wow, Drifterdon, I’ve never heard that story before! I second your request for these markings for sure!

The author’s final statement is extremely powerful,,,,,


 “As to the AF people who should have been at their positions, they were 
scattered around the building doing various personal things. The fallout 
was that the 2nd LT and the senior NCO on duty were reprimanded and I 
believe, both denied continued service past their existing contracts. 
 I've always felt that if someone had remained in room five, our plane 
would have been alerted and would have broken its track and headed back to 
Japan.”
