    "I wonder if the SAAF stripped the leopard-skin detailing off the steps after they bought it from him." I wonder if you could get a decal for that for the Heller kit?

        For a Facebook friend came the request for pictures of Piper (Super) Cubs from Uganda , Katanga and Nicaragua. Can someone help him with that? I can't find any!

                  Speaking of Super Cubs, here's a weird one from the Greek Army. Note the strange roundels! From www.aviationsmilitaires.net.

                        Love the F-27. I took that picture somewhere in the early 80s at Schiphol airport . It is a scan of a little bit damaged negative.

                          Is this Angolan F-27M photography yours (no credit found on Internet) ?

                            Yes it is. I had posted in a Facebook group and then it went worldwide. I don't mind. The internet is for SHARING information.

                              I effectively found it on the internet ... let's give back to Caesar what belongs to Caesar ... or rather to Gerard what belongs to Gerard. Thanks for sharing.

                                  That Guinea Bissau Alouette II is quite weird, Gerard. I have also found another image of it, showing a thin red surround on the black star. The camouflage is readily apparent in this one. My best guess is that they applied the gray camouflage pattern later, and painted out the red on the roundels, leaving just a thin red border to the black stars.

                                        The appearance of the aircraft is changing. The triangle shaped roundel is gone on all aircraft except on the F-5s. The green air force ensign is also gone. The national flag is now on the tailfin and no more on the top of the fin as a stretched band.
