  1. MiG-25RBT, 1/48 ICM

    XLNT, Thank you Tony! Bookmarked I still think that the split between MiG and Sukhoi that the friends at Scalemodeler.com are making is quite interesting, would you agree? Very Best Regards Johan

    Sprue is cut Will be back in the WIP section soon. BTW, I went for Fotki 100GB, it does come at a cost but it is like a soda in the pub, not even a half pint / month. Very Bet Regards Johan
  3. Flanker STGB chat

    Hello, I would be happy to join this GB. I have the Academy 1/48 SU-27 (Eduard's reboxing) that has been sitting in the stash since 2011. I have inserted the resin cockpit tube (2 parts) into the upper half of the air frame but that's it. Best regards Johan
  4. MiG-25RBT, 1/48 ICM

    Hello Craig, Thank you fr your reply! A can of worms it is indeed... To T or not to T: My take is that modifications will be required either way. Since the only actual machine I was able to find references to with regards to the stencils included was Red 46, depicted on the box art as a RBT (funny that...), it is going to be a T. Regarding the color I found a link at https://www.cybermodeler.com/color/cockpit.shtml that sort of explains my issue with the SU-27 being grey and the MiG-21 being greenish / blue (or Turquoise). I am now testing MIG's A.MIG-223 (Left) and Tamiya's XF-71 (Right). My own mix (Middle) is running out. [/URL] A helpful friend at Finescale forum suggested a ready mixed acrylic paint from MRP: http://mrpaint.sk/farby/lietadla/USSR?product_id=51 Thank you for taking interest and your suggestions! Best regards Johan
  5. MiG-25RBT, 1/48 ICM

    Hi, Just starting up on this kit - and I want to get it right. I understand from various links on this Forum and others that there is a fix to be applied to make this into an RBT. Or vice versa - back date the kit to an RB. So let me verify my findings after spending a(n other) day on Google with you: RBT: Shape a bulge under the nose cone (or use an aftermarket part) Omit parts C21 & C22 and fill the recesses. RB: Shorten the upper parts of the air-intakes and cut them flush to the upper end of the intake fairing. Modify the parashut housing. Is this a correct summary? If someone could help with the correct color of the cockpit interior color that would be great as well. I have seen some postings here that are done in a greenish blue / bluish green color that look very close to references found on the web. But the instructions call for Tamiya XF-71. This is cockpit green. My Eduard MiG-21 printed IP has the same color as seen in your threads. My Eduard SU-27 printed IP is pale grey. Your advice would be very much appreciated. Best regards Johan
  6. Zvezda #3636 Terminator

    Hi, This kit is based on the Zvezda T-90. The issue with the incorrect stance of the vehicle has not been corrected. The undercarriage of the T-90 was to high. The T-90 could be corrected by pushing the swing arms up and cutting down the side skirts . This might be less obvious or even absorbed by the design in this kit. Would anyone have an update or can I simply work the kit AsIs? Best Regards Johan
  7. Hi Stix, Amazed with what you are doing with this artifact The boxart is an early T1 and the turret is a mid... wow and congratulations to your research Airfix You are making this into a piece of art! One thing though, the hull crew hatches look wrong, I think they should be the other way around. Best Regards Johan
  8. T-90, help with color references please

    Hi magman2 & All, Johan again... Picking up the old Zvezda after a long timeout - and finally got some progress Ready for the paint this weekend hopefully... I am going with XF-69 Nato Black, XF-59 Dessert Yellow and XF-5 Flat Green. The XF-59 looks a bit to yellow, the XF-5 is not olive enough but I hope a few washes will deal with that. If you guys think I am totally off (the colour chart) please shout Best Regards Johan
