  1. Why not both. With an added Swiss Tunnan, while we're at it ;-) Cheers, Andre
  2. Well, it's easy to forget that a lot of these kits were designed way back when all we had were a couple of blurry pics from behind the Iron Curtain. Hasegawa MiG-29, anyone..? Cheers, Andre
  3. The Hasegawa suffers from a number of inaccuracies - see Ken Duffeys excellent writeup here. Cheers, Andre
  4. Well, there's always the rivet tool. Cheers, Andre
  5. Indeed, I tend to apply only the stencils similarly visible on photographs. Just my opinion, of course, to each his own and all that, but a miriad of stencils that do not appear when viewd at a realistic diastance makes a model look toylike to me. Cheers, Andre
  6. While on the subject of modified Neptunes - I have a special Dutch limited edition of the Hasegawa kit with a Dutch Decal shet and a resin gun nose as used in Indonesia. A few of these birds even had air-to-air kills..! Cheers, Andre
  7. At the risk of stirring up a controversy of Stones-vs-Beatles-like proportions: how many rivets can you actually see on a photo of a real Flanker at a distance comparative to 1/72nd scale..? I actually prefer the lack of rivets. Cheers, Andre
  8. Hey Dave, did the parts reach you yet? Cheers, Andre
  9. Great looking Flogger! Cheers, Andre
  10. I just stumbled on this article - might be of interest to the subject at hand: https://modelpaintsol.com/builds/172-high-planes-canberra-suez-crisis-scheme Cheers, Andre
  11. Hence the Hase headsup. Luckily I have about four of those in the stash... Cheers, Andre
  12. There's a specific Hasegawa NASA boxing as well, which is well worth hunting down. Great pics, Mike! Cheers, Andre
  13. To each his own, but I find both of these eminently preferable to the overly gaudy, 80s legwarmer-ish Miss Demeanour. *donning flameproof suit* Cheers, Andre
  14. AFAIK the noses of the MiG-23BN Flogger-H and the initial MiG-27 sans suffix Flogger-D are identical. The noses of the later MiG-27K, M and D (Flogger-J/J2) differ due to the Kaira-23 / Klyon-PM laser target designators fitted. HTH, Andre
  15. Hopefully a simple question, but one I could not solve with my references - did the third generation MiG-21M / MF versions use the R-60, or were they limited to the AA-2? Edit: ah, answered my own question: yes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Mikoyan-Gurevich_MiG-21_variants#Modernisation_-_Generation_Three_.281968.E2.80.931972.29 Cheers, Andre
