Quote from: Gondor on March 21, 2017, 03:40:22 AMAs far as I know these plates were not fitted to Royal Navy machines. Apparently the strengthening plates were fitted to USN and USAF aircraft, S, E and probably G airframes from what I have read. Selected, probably low hour airframes in the UK were probably fitted if the airframe was likely to be used and as far as I know the K was phased out of service and replaced with M's. US aircraft also had plates fitted to the sides of the intakes as well, I am not going to add any as the K/M had a different intake so I am thinking I can get away with not adding them.Gondor
