Along the lines of my last request, Japanese V-22s.  I can visualize at least three, one on the OD scheme their transport V-107s use, one in a SAR scheme, and a "maritime assault" one in the two-tone blue used by their over-water strikes (F-4EJ, F-1, F-2).  I suspect you could several variations on the SAR scheme.

Since the squadron's 100 anniversary is coming up in 1918, I could see the 95th Reconnaissance Squadron, which currently operates "Rivet Joint" aircraft painting up on in special markings, derived, say, from those the squadron's P-26 aircraft wore in the 1930's, yellow trim on light blue with the red, white, and blue rudder stripes and yellow wings.  That could make for a marvelous scheme on a Rivet Joint airframe.

Almost out of RN school and about to resume modeling, been a loooong time...  :) I've got a couple of Whifs ideas I'd like to complete for the Extended Life group build.  I'm looking to build an Irish Air Corps A-4 Skyhawk & Mirage F.1; both post-modernization.  I tried the search function for some suitable schemes but not finding anything.  I was thinking of the following schemes:

1) overall medium/dark/olive green (like Danish Drakens or late RNZAF A-4's)
2) olive/medium green over grey (similar to current IAAC camo scheme)
3) wraparound medium green and grey (like French Mirage F.1CT's) or
4) wraparound Euro 1 scheme (like RNZAF A-4's)

I'd like the A-4 and Mirage to have matching schemes

Any other ideas?  Any profiles I might have missed that would be good inspiration?

Thanks, cheers and happy modeling, Bryan

Just found these beautiful photographs of the Australian CAC CA-31-007 mock-up at Australian National Aviation Museum, Moorabbin Sept 2014 (Photo by Brendan Cowan) at:
 
http://www.adf-gallery.com.au/gallery/CAC-CA-31/07_09_2014_CA31_007_Brendan_Cowan_0050

Dam! The last time I visited ANAM Moorabbin, this mock-up was in pieces and stored unceremoniously in a corner  :(

I would sincerely appreciate anyone who was able and willing to do a couple of detailed profiles of the CA-31 design in both proposed single and two-seat configurations – armed in the ground attack and lightweight fighter (gun pod on centreline, and a couple of Aim-9 Sidewinder's) configuration!
I envisage this lightweight ground attack / fighter being employed in Citizen Air Force Squadrons of:   
No 21 (City of Melbourne) Squadron
No 22 (City of Sydney) Squadron
No 23 (City of Brisbane) Squadron
No 24 (City of Adelaide) Squadron
No 25 (City of Perth) Squadron
(Thanks GTX  ;))
The CA-31 would complement the regular RAAF Mirage III's in a high/low type of mix, as well as performing advance training and lead-in fighter training.

I can also see the likes of India (instead of HAL Ajeet!), Malaysia and Singapore potentially employing the CA-31 design as a cost-effective lightweight ground attack fighter, if it was marketed properly by Australian Government  ;)

I'm sorry, but I have had no luck finding high res drawings  :(
But I will post what I have!

Thanks in advance

and a couple more pics....

If possible, I would also appreciate the incorporation of the French MATRA JK-200 weapons-drop tank systems, which combines 313lt fuel, 18 x 68mm FFAR and 4 x 250 lb bombs! This will afford the CA-31 to carrying a weapons load of 1815 kg on its four wing and two fuselage hardpoints!

I hear you Volkodav!
I thought the same thing the first time I saw the configuration. It begs the question why it hasn't been as popular? I guess the configuration is somewhat of a compromise, and I dear say a lot of aerodynamic drag!

Does anyone produce the JK-200 in styrene, resin, etc.?  It would fit nicely with a build I'm working up.  Particularly if it could carry LGB's.

Antarki Model Kits Perú produce the related JL-100 in both 1/48 and 1/72:



Looking at the image below, it should be possible to convert into the larger JK-200:



BTW, can anyone actually confirm if the JK200 is real?  I ask since you can find reference to the JL100 and the RPK10 which is the bomb carrying fuel tank (see below) but no JK200:

G'day gent's!
I'm looking for some buddying profiler's to collaborate with me on a couple of Alternative History stories please?
I have the following in mind:
- Alternative Australian Defence Force ORBAT

- An Australian collaboration with Agusta to licensed manufacture and deploy Agusta A129 LBH (Light Battlefield Helicopter). Impressed with the costs and capability of the A129 Mangusta and A129 LBH combination, it is adopted by other army's and air forces, including the US Army, under the 'Austerity LHX Program,' after Bernie Sanders becomes President, and forces the Pentagon to get it's house into order.....!

- An alternative Soviet Frontline Bomber, which uses and refines the Sukhoi T6 into a TRSki-type design, instead of the heavier, more complex variable-geometry winged Su-24 'Fencer'......

- An alternative Soviet Shturmovik, which utilises the earlier, smaller, lighter and cheaper Suhkoi LSSh/SPB design, that would become the Su-25 'Frogfoot'. This smaller specialised and affordable ground attack/anti-armour capability proliferates throughout the Middle East and African conflicts.......!

If interested, able and willing, please PM me!

Here's one - it still has the original Su-19 designation though:

Ok gents.....starting to make some head-way with my 'Alternative ADF ORBAT,' thanks greatly to the efforts and talents of other forum members.
Staring to comb this forum for some supportive profiles to complement this endeavour.....

What I'm looking for is a coloured profile of the Turkish FNSS ACV-S tracked armoured combat vehicle. This vehicle is very similar in looks/profile to the YPR-765, but is somewhat stretched and with six-road wheels, as opposed to the YPR-765's five-road wheel configuration.

Note I've attached picture of FNSS ACV-S tracked armoured combat vehicle, and a profile artist work of the YPR-765, as to give an idea of what I'm after!  ;)

Thanks in advance!

Ok, with the encouragement of fellow forum members [Logan & Carlos (Ysi_maniac)], I've had a crack at doing some profiling using 'Paint' program... so here's my 'stretched' YPR-765/ACV-S, that will be the basis for one of the competitions for the chassis for the Australian Army 'tracked armoured combat vehicle' series for the late 1970's, thus far!
Please note, I've edited this profile from an existing profile from the amazing website http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/coldwar/US/M113_APC.php By TEadmin

Can you find a 3 view drawing of Sikorsky S-58 or Westland Wessex? This is the best I have found that I think is not good enough.
