These are not available as aftermarket accessories so I am appealing here if anyone has teardrop shaped drop tanks from either Monogram's F-80 or Trumpeter's Sea Fury FBII, both of which are serviceable or adaptable injection molded versions? I can replace the (apparently incorrect) Trumpeter ones with Barracuda resin corrected drop tanks if required. Sure hope someone can help? Onwards with the build, which kinda messes up the work bench, 2 of everything to keep track of -
While I'm tidying up loose ends this morning, here's some finished pics of my two 'gals' from the 457thFS, 506th FG, Iwo Jima, June 1945. #528 "The Enchantress" flown by 2nd Lt William E Saks, was one of 24 aircraft which failed to return from the VLR escort "weather mission" of 1 June 1945, later called "Black Friday"
Thanks for looking in Cheers Wally. PS - the twin wooden antennas are AN/ARA-8 homing adapter of "Uncle Dog" air-to-ground homing system and both aircraft carry antenna array for AN/APS-13 radio set on both sides of the fin
