The problem with Flightradar24 is that it relies on a/c transmitting on ADS-B which does give a lot of information to whoever is looking at it. Military types, especially operational ones, tend not to use ADS-B for this reason.

Bushfires in Gippsland meant footage on the TV news of Coulson Aviation's 737 Fireliner dropping retardant.

Not my picture.

How about that as a build Brad C?  You could model it in flight with the retardant replicated by dyed cotton wool and hiding the support.

Zigactly what I plan (eventually  :rolleyes:) for my 'Always' A-26... just have to get the nerve and enthusiasm to shave and sand the Airfix kit (again...  :banghead:)

And yeah, the Italeri kit is MUCH nicer and smooth too, but 1. I have a couple of cheap Airfix kits, and 2. the Italeri isn't readily available here at present...
