I just picked up the 1/144 AC-130A kit from Minicraft today.  Only problem is that it doesnít have the four-blade props, only the three-blade ones.  All the other Minicraft C-130As come with a choice, but I guess I didnít do my homework.  I put a post up in the swap section to see if anyoneís got some to trade.

It seems like a nice kit though. Iím actually a bit surprised at how small it is... for some reason I think the C-130s are huge.
Thanks!

From the Paint Rack....

1/72 Sova-M/A Model Gulfstream G-550 J-STARS

Two sets of 1/72 Quickboost resin air intakes for the Mirage F1 which might seem daft but you get three intakes per pack so one spare pair at least will go on a mash up I have planned.

1 x 1/71 Revell Vickers Wellington B. II

Bought off eBay in the hope I could possibly use it for another project but the detail is too good so it will probably be real world right out of the box.

As an exercise in numpty-boggling, build it OOB but mark it up as a Fleet Air Arm navigator trainer.

I did think that I should probably use markings for a squadron that didn't use that version of the aircraft.

Just picked  my matchbox  lightning t55 up from the post office.  Yet more nostalgia  for me. I will have  to look very carefully at where I can  put pylons  on it and  not  overload the wings,  as I want to retain the IFR probe on it. It could be a  weapons test aircraft,  like the meteor  NF14 I am doing,  or a strike  aircraft  about to be  sent to Malaysia/Borneo  in 1964.

Saudi T53s had a wing pylon outboard of the u/c bay with quite a high rating: 1000lb bomb or 2x MATRA pods at least. Aeroelasticity might be an issue with something long and finned like a missile though.

They also proposed (cleared?) the overwing drop tank pylons for twin MATRA JL-100 rocket+fuel pods on each one. As the Jaguar had proved, Sidewinders will fire just fine from overwing pylons and the position has good 'look-up' into a turn for IR weapons, so this looks like a definite possibility for extra AAMs.

BAC put forward many schemes for advanced Lightnings based on 'T55s' (i.e. two-seaters with the long belly tank) or two-seaters with an even longer belly tank that covered the normal missile pack position. Many of these had fuel in the front and back of the tank (no guns) and a removeable weapon pod in the middle of it that could take retractable rocket packs, conformal bombs (including a tac-nuke) or pylons for bombs, rocket-pods or ASMs. Clearance with the undercarriage legs and the ground is the main limitation.

Alleycat do the wing pylons IIRC, and Freightdog do a slightly different belly-pack with pylons conversion, originally proposed as a ground-attack conversion for the RAFG F.2As.

Cheers for that H,
I will look in to the alleycat and freightdog  stuff for it. 1000lb is quite  a weight for  that  pylon too, I  didn't think  it could  carry  so much. I shall  investigate  more with all that  information  :thumbsup:

Two 1/72 Revell Avro Lancasters 04300 and 04295. One will become a ASR.1 and the other used as spares for various builds.

I made my own model kit out of spares. It is a new addition to my stash, so, IT COUNTS.  :angry: ;D ;D


I joke a wee bit, but I'm also completely serious. I, meticulously, scoured my spare parts and managed to gather up a complete aircraft. I'll make a thread for it soon, but there are some details here if anyone is interested to read about it:
