    Outrageous! What's this place coming to...

    Milton, Duckie;

    You lads should be ashamed of yourselves publishing photographs like that here.

    The least you could do, was to give credit to the poor photographers who spent their precious time and skill taking the snaps.


    Bet you didn't even bother to get their permission!

    edit; important announcement; this is the cockpit i use, it was given to me by a kind Scott!

    The panel & VC are really shaping up nicely. They look fantastic - with lots of beautiful steam gauges and switches to flip - just the way I like 'em!

    Excellent work by all involved. Really looking forward to this...

    You're gonna have alot of explaining to do... to the FAA man, who's waiting back at the dispersal for that little stunt, Nigel. Not to mention ATC and the Airport Authority as well. Let's face it... YOU'RE GROUNDED!!!

    You kidding me Bravo, Bravo. Keep the law?

    The silly clots can't even set the internet up properly...It's been like reeeeeellllll sssslllloooowww mmmoootttiiiooon today, when I needed it most too!

    They'll never catch me in 'that' Tracker...its a 'one off job' that came in my Christmas stocking.
    Pair of coupled-up-souped up, R-2800 'specialsx' in each nacelle.

    Naaah, I was gone before I got there.

    kinda stopped 'em in their tracks.

    And they can stick their internet... I'm going to ask Uncle Milton to fix me up with a special 'Internet Stoof with a Roof!'

    Who's waiting for me back at dispersal?...That's you, I saw that SF flick past...knew you were up to something.

    Not to my knowledge Sir.

    Here is the current project status.

    There is no paint kit available for that variant yet.

    E-1B Question

    Can someone tell me if the bottom of the engine nacelles of the E-1 Looked like the line diagram below, specifically the area between the aft end of the cowl and the forward gear doors?

    I'm unable to find any detailed photos of this area for the E-1.

    I notice on the photos that I can find of the and E-1 and S-2 this area on operational birds, it appears very stained from some kind of venting of oil/fluid and or hot air exhaust. The venting seems to be "sucked' into the gear well and further vented aft out the gear wells. I realize some staining would naturally occur aft of the gear doors just from take off and landing operations but there seems to be additional staining caused by the venting or exhausting from the cowl area.

    I really like the way the nacelle bottoms look on the last 2.

    Any info is good and pics are even better.

    Hey Nigel -that may be the money shot! I actually have that one but I have it filed under "landing gear and wells," so I did even thoroughly enough search my own stuff!

    It definately shows what may be an oil cooler outlet and another cowl type flap just ahead of the main gear well.

    Unfortunately most of the walk-a-rounds are of gate guards and other static displays which have all been painted then repainted, long obliterating what I call their "operational character".

    Good one. Thanks
