    Hi All.
    Ted, please see what I’ve prepared for you.
    This is a Multiple Ejection Rack, mounted on the central pylon.
    Moshe, please choose the armament variant for the beta test building right now.
    I propose 2 variants – one MER attached to central fuselage pylon and two external fuel tanks, or two MERs on the internal wing pylons and one fuel tank on the central pylons. In both cases the wings external pylons should carry Sindwinder IRAA missiles.
    The kit will have also MER/TER option, but I’m afraid that I can’t supply in time the all variants for the beta test assemblage.
    Best++,

    Emil, I have 6 bombs built up and as Moshe pointed out my lower flaps have been deflected quite a bit and might interfere with the long fuel tanks. So bothe ters and a central fuel tank might be the way to go with this build. But Moshe can have final approval, it is his kit, I'm just the builder!

    Ted, if the flaps are 45 degrees or less down, everything will be OK.
    I checked the geometry of the model before extracting the parts.
    Now for the diorama entusiasts...

    Emil, I was among the crowd that were watching this competition, shown in this picture. You can see aircraft#306, representing my squadron.
    It was the first and unfortunatly the last I.A.F.s Skyhawk squadrons sport day. It was sometime in 1977, and each squadron competed for:
    soccer, basketball, volleyball and pulling a rope. Also each squadron sent a ground crew and a pilots crew (the pilots competed on the ground just for the fun of it) to compete for the shortest time it takes to prepare a standard flight configuration, consisting of a MER with 6 Mk-62 bombs, 2 fuel tanks and 2 Mk-82's for the outer wing pylons (seen in this picture). My squadron took 1st place in the total score of the ball games, and 2nd place in the "real thing", and that's only because the winning team put some warnning signs around their aircraft, they where from the air base who hosted this event, and got an unfair advantage.
    The judges ignore all other teams' protests :mad: The pilots also competed in the air, doing some bombing and shooting. I do not remember who won this one.

    Ted, until the MER is ready it doesn't matter what you load on the kit.
    The two external fuel tanks, are good. Or 5 MK-82, 1 on each pylon.
    MERs were used on the inner wing pylons only with 5 French 100kg bombs (which aren't in the kit). A possible configuration is 2 fuel tanks, 7 Mk-82 and 1 AA missile.
    There were some experiments with 3 MK-82 on a MER on the inner wing pylons, but we never used it otherwise.
