Diana, I was going to point out that you had moved the decimal point when you stated the output of the VW generator.

Your quite correct, this computer has sticky keys and that error I overlooked.  :)

Fixed now.  But how big would a 100KVA Gen Set be?

Thankyou for the offer, i will let the group know.  The tac plate was on the wrong side for IF16 as i didnt have the stand off bracket made yet and also needed to paint up another skippy 1ATF plate. Ill swap the rears over thanks.  The fold up camp chairs were often seen around Nui Dat , purchased in Saigon or Vungas on R&R most likely.  This one may be a little too modern design though. We got to get some great pics at wings over illawarra with the uh1s you speak off. Shame being x us army vietnam vet hellis they are not restored in true colors.  I could still see the OD paint under chips.

Paint colour is a difficult issue, attempting to get the correct 1960s US Olive Drab for an aircraft in the 2010s is awkward, you had the same trouble when you painted your SIIA in Protec Camouflage Green when the correct colour would have been Wattle Olive Drab, which unfortunately is no longer produced in commercial batches.

As for the chairs, the Army did have a similar chair, usually in deep bronze green with a canvas cover corded together, similar to the one in the pic but without the spring tensioner.  These were nicknamed Chairs Millionaires.  The rest of the presentation was good and my chair comment an attempt at humour.

I would really like to see all the Amoured vehicles come down for Wings Over Illawarra Airshow.  It is the biggest assembly ofmilitary aircraft on display in oz.  The crowd loved LLH / SRN 's display of bofars AA gun, that we were asked to track and fire on aircraft in the air, also they enjoyed a table spread of rifles with blank fire rifle display.   If only the Armoured guys and a couple of theatrical armourers would come we could have an epic battle reenactment display with hueys insertion of the troops.  We had heaps of fun and was enjoyed by all.

Unfortunatly the cost of moving A vehicles restricts us to a couple  of events each year we did look at going to the airshow but the budget would only stretch so far :(
