Wherever it's hosted isn't allowing me to see the image. :(
I too, am experiencing the same issue.  No image available, just the Red-X thing.   I suspect that may be due to Secret Projects not allowing hot-linking of the image.

My knowledge of Japanese aircraft isn't great but it certainly looks like a Mitsubishi A6M Zero to me. ;)

Hi

A recent work done.
Australian Canberra used in Viet Nam war

"...A84-247 was allotted to 2 Squadron RAAF for service in Vietnam in July 1967, and flew its first operational sortie on 14 July. It continued in operational use until 11 June 1968 when it returned to Australia for servicing followed by a brief posting to 1 Operational Conversion Unit (OCU) at Amberley Queensland. In July 1969 the aircraft returned to 2 Squadron and carried out its next operational flight on 19 July 1969. It remained with the Squadron until February 1971, undertaking its last bombing operation on 6 February 1971. This aircraft was used for both medium and low level bombing operations, and is known to have completed at least 680 operational flights in Vietnam. ..."

That is so cool! I had to Google those wingtip bomb racks. Were those racks an exclusive fit for 2 Sqn aircraft in VN?

Anyway, High Planes does 'em in 1/72 (HPA072030):

Indeed:






The Canberra could carry 6 x 1,000lb British bombs internally in its bomb bay, but in Vietnam the only bombs available were US designed, and only 4 x 750lb US bombs would fit in the bomb bay (go figger...) – the drop tanks were removed and an additional 2 x 750lb US bombs could be carried (1 on each wing tip).  The bomb aimer would push the normal bomb release buttons for the 4 bombs internally but had to push the “Drop Tank Release Switch” to drop the bombs on the wing tips.

This illustration was for High PLane Models, thank you for the comment ;)
I think only the australian squadron had this wingtip rack. At least this point was highlighted by them (HPM).

I would imagine that the British bombs were fairly blunt, much like WW II bombs whereas the US 750 lb bombs were likely of the smaller diameter but longer Aero 2A series of bombs; I could see that making the difference.

Fair enough.  Gotta have fun.

One I would love to see you do sometime (no pressure though) would be the Blohm & Voss P 215 Night Fighter.

I'll get it in my list, for sure. It is an interesting aircraft like his little brother Bv 212  ;)

This model looks really nice - I still have to buy this one and the monoplace version.
I don't have them in my collection ;)
