    Thank you for your replies.
    The Israeli Air Force Spitfires have been armed also with 80mm Oerlikon Air to Ground Rockets.
    Can someone upload a picture or a drawing of this Rocket?

    I'm new to the site and could use some help. I'm starting on a 1/32 Tamiya Spitfire MK IX. The kit has the C wing and I want to do one with the E wing. What I am looking for is a drawing of the ejctor port layout for the 20mm and 50 cal. guns If anybody has one I would appreciate it.
    Thanks

    So, if you use the 2x20mm and the 2x.50 cal, there are no .303s and the installation looks just like those in Post #8. In addition there are none of the little red squares covering the outer gun ports.

    Is this correct?

    (I'm making a model of a IXc and want a 2x20mm with 2x.50 cal.)

    The MkIXc would have 2 x 20mm and 4 x .303. The MkIXe had the 2 x 20mm outboard, with the 2 x .50 cal Brownings inboard, without the .303 Brownings, therefore no dull red canvas patches outboard.
