This information can from Aussie Modeller International websit:
the 'flares' were MK18 smoke grenades of various colours, carried in locally manufactured holders made out of metal tubing rivetted to a thin metal backing plate. The 'pouch' below the smoke grenade rack was, again, a locally manufactured metal box for SLR rifle magazines. The backing plates had keyhole shaped holes, not unlike a modern day 240V power board. The tie down rings in the specific area were unscrewed and replaced with dome head screws. The racks simply slotted onto the screws and were intended to be rapidly swapped out during the re-arming process.

The racks were painted the same grey colour as the cabin. The actual grenades were OD and the magazines gunmetal. There should also be a single grey grenade holder hard mounted on the the inside windscreen frame outboard of each pilot using the windscreen mounting screws.

Don't forget to leave out the forward window on both cargo doors. With the doors slid slightly forward, this allowed access to the spring loaded fire access panels on the engine cowls during startup and also the refuelling cap on the RHS. The doors could not be slid fully forward because of the twin M60 ammo boxes.
