  1. Modern desert camo colours

    Perhaps I am missing something, but: what specific aircraft are you looking for to paint..? Cheers, Andre
  2. 1/72 Draken Swedish markings

    Thanks both fore the corrections! Cheers, Andre
  3. Indeed. The worst part is the nose with the ungainly split - I plan on using a spare Trumpy cone (their 1/72nd MiG-29's come with two) on my next Italeri build. Cheers, Andre
  4. R-27T / AA-10 Alamo-B IR version on MiG-29?

    So, no pics?It's not just my Google Fu? Cheers, Andre
  5. Italeri's HH-53C boxing comes with an Yas'Ur option. Incidentally, two of the Israeli birds were ex-Austrian S-65Ö's. Cheers, Andre
  6. Airfix 2018

    The Valom kit is pretty nice: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/102973-valom-72060-dassault-md-450-ouragan Cheers, Andre
  7. Airfix 2018

    And a new tool 1/72nd Scout to go with it, while Airfix are at it. Obviously. Cheers, Andre
  8. Tornado GR1A best 1/72 kit?

    Of course - you can use some of the ECR bits (cannon port plugs, underfuselage bulge) of the ECR kit with the RAF-specific bits from the GR.1 kit (RAF-style pylon fairings, fin ILS aerials, 2250 liter tanks, Sky Shadow, RAF stencilling from the decals, etc.). Cheers, Andre
  9. R-27T / AA-10 Alamo-B IR version on MiG-29?

    Indeed. However, photographic evidence of the IR version being carried at all by the Fulcrum, let alone in combination with a radar guided one on the other side, seem rather thin on the ground. Perhaps the doctrine changed with the advent of the R-73..? Cheers, Andre
  10. R-27T / AA-10 Alamo-B IR version on MiG-29?

    You're right - thanks for the correction, post adjusted. Cheers, Andre
  11. Airfix 2018

    Perhaps I don't understand you correctly, but doesn't the current / initial Defiant boxing A02069) has an 151st Squadron nightfighter decal option..? Cheers, Andre
  12. Good morning, quick question - does anyone have photos of the IR-guided R-27T / AA-10 Alamo-B used operationally on the MiG-29? The heatseeking variant is an option in a number of kits, but I can't for the life of me find actual photos of Fulcrums with anything other than the radar guided R-27R / AA-10 Alamo-A subtypes. TIA!, cheers, Andre Edit: topic corrected as per Ryans post
  13. Tornado GR1A best 1/72 kit?

    The RoG is still the best overall. For a GR.1A, a combination of the ECR and GR.1 boxing would be the most suitable (and you can build a standard Tornado from the bits left. HTH, Andre
  14. Iran Navy? http://users.skynet.be/exotic.planes/pictures/helicopters/irin_1.jpg Cheers, Andre
