Hi again,
I seem to be on a roll.
2 quick questions please.

USAAF bombs did they have any particular identifiers.IIRC a yellow band?
USSAF drop tanks were the filler caps painted rather than natural metal,again I seem to recall seeing some pictures of them being red?
Just checking before I hit the paint brush

Cheers

Chris

Here you go Chris.
This is a genuine, unrestored 75gal drop tank.
