The US M28 (100lb) and M29 (500lb) cluster bombs were a WWII weapon:

Both contained the 4lb M83 fragmentation munition.

US sub-munition dispensers:

I made the same mistake, sorry, and yes a Polish Mustang needed adaptation to the square roundel:

Now let us go back to Dingg's model, Loire-Nieuport/mix... ;D
Hi i have one or tow of the New metalic paints and the are good in my eace but Not so good to alclad
err several boxes in the cupboard, stacked round the work room, in the airing cupboard several boxes in the loft and 2 and 3 deep under the double bed,  all "carefully" jengaed so that the boxes fit in the space provided, sometimes with 2 or 3 of the same kit in the box or 5 kits across 3 boxes.
any semblance of  order is secondary to closest packing faction  :thumbsup:
but that's what I want / have / have got.  If you have more space, or a better system, or a larger stash you may need to organise far better.

Well good luck to you NIck, it is one that I would love to be able to do.
Although I must question your geographical knowledge.
You say it is a slight change of plans, but Perth and Milngavie (pronounced Millguy) (where you start) are at different sides of the country!  :wacko:
Do let us know how you get on, and of course PHOTOS are required.  :rolleyes:

Just had a pair of UH-60's pass  about 3-400yds west of here heading in a NW direction.
SWMBO and I were sitting out in the garden enjoying the sunshine, so they were between us and the sun.
I have to assume that given the geographical location, SW Scotland, they are most likely to be US Mil.
They did not appear to be inbound to Prestwick Airport.

Sheet of deccles this time! I was mainly interested in the post office stuff. Even after the new re-design I really dig the stylings.  Will make for some good whif projects. Like...a CH-47 postal carrier helo or something.  ;D

The rest is cool, too. I'll eventually make some whif planes out of it. A-10 Forest Service or an FBI F-16 or something.

I like the idea of the FEMA decals on an Ambulance  :rolleyes:

Interesting sheet of transfers (decals) Chronic  :thumbsup:

I think so, too! I have some interesting thoughts about some of 'em that could make for neat lookin' airplanes.

I forgot to mention earlier they're for 1/24 1/25 auto kits and made by Gofer.  (I meant to flip the tag over so people could read it oops!)

As I recall Hasegawa have done their Tomcat (1/72) in at least 3 Ace Combat schemes including Wardog, Pumpkin and Razgriz.

Thanks lads all good gen. And duly noted :thumbsup:
Whilst rummaging around on the net looking for British Bomb types, I found this report from the US Navy:
Which is a 246 page report of British explosive ordnance, and covers everything from Bombs to RPs (including an air to air one meant for use from bombers against attacking fighters) and also includes grenades, land mines etc. in fact almost everything that could or would go bang. Interestingly for us modelers as well as a general description it also gives measurements, and details of the colours it was painted and what identifying markings were carried. Well worth a look IMHO

(Maybe worth putting in the weapons topic?)
