    Well, as self ordered prescription to better health ;), I'm keeping and eye on a couple of Italeri F-111E/F's.
    Also keeping an eye on a set of 1/48 Afterburner Decals for Upper Heyford F-111's, already have their Lakenheath set, SUPERB!
    Also found that Flightpath have the correct Pave Tack pod plus a few bits and bobs in 1/48...

    Cool! 8)
    Post the decals for the 70-2413.
    Which are the appropiate ones at the time of El Dorado Canyon, is it the correct crew, the camouflage the same, what's the meaning of the blue animal thingys? Thinking of '413' just around the operation, a day or so before or maybe just before takeoff....

    I think the blue camels were put on after the raid, but cannot be sure. I do know the campaign ribbon on the tail was put on after the raid, since that was the ribbon for the raid itself. I have more info on Karma 51 and the targets it was to hit somewhere in my stuff. Let me see what I can dig out. I know Dwight posted some stuff on the El Dorado Canyon F-111s a while back.

    It takes me back to the airshow they had in 91'or 92' to celebrate them being pulled out of there - the XB-556 or 558? even did a farewaell flyover and some runway burnups before it was grounded at the end of that seasons of shows. I myself with about 13 other members of my schools flight club was there. I might still ave a autographed book from some of the pilots somewhere in storage...

    Great stuff Jan. I fancy doing a F-111 as it might have looked in RAF service, when we were supposed to get them in the late 1960s.
