  1. Chengdu J-10

    WOW!!! If once, at the Russian modeling forum, I haven't seen, what my copy of the "Aerohobby" magazine (now "Aviation & Time") has on one of pages it is less than text than other just the same magazine.... I would tell that this some miracle!!! But as I saw such magazine and therefore that I have Lightning F.Mk.6 from Airfix with a mistake on a box (without the stabilizer) I perhaps won't state very strong surprise! But it is interesting! Perhaps, I should make a photo other pages of the instruction what we could look still for differences!!! B.R. Serge
  2. Chengdu J-10

    In the instruction is how to paint a wheel bay. Most likely you just haven't paid attention to it. Unfortunately specified in the instruction white enamel not correct as I consider. It is quite possible that Humbrol 56 will help to correct a situation. It is the correct translation of enamels мr.Color in Humbrol enamel. But I am not sure that the version of interpretation J-10A "red 1006" camouflage in the instruction Trumpeter is correct. It should be noted, that J-10A "red 1006" chosen by you, as well as other J-10A "gray 1013" aren't combat planes of the front line. "Red 1006" it is the sixth prototype of J-10A. A camouflage by which it is painted expremental at the same time during completion of this plane a air refueling system by this plane unpainted panels a color zinc chromate have appeared. "Gray 1013" is pre-series plane. Such camouflage has received a limited by front planes. It is considered that the camouflage of this plane as on "Grey 1013" is carried by planes Chinese a squadron "Aggressor". https://thelexicans.wordpress.com/2013/12/27/the-plaaf-aggressor-program/ However planes Chinese a squadron "Aggressor" in it a camouflage as on "Grey 1013" don't carrier four-digit number on a nose. They have standard yellow numbers on a fin. B.R. Serge P.S. B.w. russian computer stimulation shows the following ratio: Dog fight MiG-35 - 1.64/J-10 - 1.11 Long/medium range fight MiG-35 - 1.44/J-10 - 1.0 It means that one MiG-35 is equal two J-10A. Also it is claimed that J-10A according to the fighting characteristics an equivalent Su-27 of a sample of 1982.

    Politicians? Lawyers? How can you tell it here on the modellers website ??? ..... let's send designers of bad models there!!! I believe, there are no objections against sendings to Mars team of designers models from the Trumpeter and HobbyBoss? B.R. Serge
  4. Cats, they're taking over. Part 3

    About this Poland site. It's classic Overton window! Cat's nice & funny =》 Kitler's I.e. cats who look like hitler is funny =》 ....then hitler is funny ..... and nice.....it's classic manipulation in Overton window style! Sorry, but generally it's not funny.... (These are the general reasonings! I have no claims to someone in this topic personally! ) B.R. Serge
  5. Chengdu J-10

    Sorry , it's white? White color wheel bay in Trumpeter instruction J-10A is mistake! I don't see photo wheel bay J-10 in white colour ! I see photo wheel bay J-10 or medium blue color, as this: or light grey as this: In theory white wheel bay maybe on 1st prototype/mockup J-10, but this in theory! You will tell that on a photo which I have placed a wheel bay not light gray, they is white!!! It's not true. Watch this photo! On this photo the dial watch - white, wheel bay is darkish then dial watch! Then on this photo wheel bay is light gray! B.w. IanHx, what option a camouflage you are going to do? B.R. Serge
  6. Good idea! Maybe You write Modelsvit about this idea on their facebook? B.R. Serge
  7. When I was young, pilot from the Gloster Whittle, was for my as high quality art object, almost how sculpture Roden. B.w. FROG have civilian figure include spy man & woman in Lysander! Missing P-39 Aircobra, La-7 e.t.c. late FROG pilot style! B.R. Serge
  8. You nothing understand in Soviet art-house! It is P-40 in the abstractionism style! But now you know the true reason why Khrushchev has ordered to destroy abstractionist art show by bulldozers? At that abstractionist art show, everything went normally until Khrushchev hasn't seen this box art P-40!!! B.R. Serge P.S. B.w. on fuselage this boxart P-40 code read as GOLD!!!
  9. I have come across scalemodels.ru ..........is repack NOVO Phantom, from the Modelist, which never was and won't be: http://scalemodels.ru/modules/forum/img_1453661_1517856797_B_TA3m9HO2M.jpg.html .... and very compassionate, nostalgia depression clip "NOSTALGIA" about it is NOVO, Plastikart, a string-bag, pseudo Gothic architecture of the 40th years.......... with vodka, but for some reason without bears and balalaikas : (some faces in clip I know, and she know my ) B.R. Serge
  10. They have given the stabilizer Magic 550 photoetch, it is good. But some producers, such as Eduard for example, usually do in photoetch for convenience modeller special conductor in photoetch. Here it is necessary to do because 6х3×4 = 72 photoetch plates to the cylinder case Magic 550 need build. The task is feasible, but rather tiresome. Interestingly, what color Humbrol they to give the desert camouflage scheme Mirage 4000 in the instruction? So far on a photo, molds everything looks not bad. However, we will draw conclusions when the first appear independent building. B.R. Serge
  11. Yeeeppp, l can build an F.1C-200, just add "aftermarket" decals from my: -....ESCI: -....Hasegawa: -....Heller: ......but why to me to do it? As writes Apex: The Special Hobby has declared F1C.200. Of course if they don't make decal option as at ESCI, I will take your advice and I will take decal from ESCI. You think the Iranian Phantom and burning oil plant will be are included in inside boxes of Special Hobby? If so, that it will be a hot sales! B.R. Serge
  12. You too so think! I mean, I am not lonely in the assumptions: B.R. Serge
  13. Mirage F-1B....Mirage F-1CG.........Mirage F-1CE......Mirage F-1CH....Mirage F-1EQ/ED.......sorry, but it's all substitutes!! When we see real Mirage F.1 - Mirage F.1C/ F.1C-200 French Air Force? B.R. Serge

    MiG-21F Modelsvit https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2046666208935753&substory_index=0&id=1854784001457309 I join a question: "Why award MiG-21F but not Su-17M3?" Yes, MiG-21F good model, but Su-17M3 on my look very good. B.R. Serge
  15. I assumed this restriction! The logic of the American laws is clear. To the population the syringe without recipe of the doctor is no need to have houses. In the territory of the former USSR the legislator recognized logic that the addict will always find drug at the drug dealer. If to forbid sale disposable the syringe in pharmacy , then addicts will use reusable syringes. Thus the incidence AIDS will be higher at the ban of sale disposable the syringe. Besides in 80-90 years there was a period when the population isn't present trust to medical personnel of hospitals therefore if in it there was a need, patients to buy disposable the syringe in pharmacy before a visit to the doctor. Now trust to purity of the medical tool in hospitals high therefore nobody goes in hospital for one-time treatment with the syringe except the paranoid. At medical examination in a hospital of hospital a situation slightly another, but long to describe it, and I am not sure that wash knowledge English will be able correctly to describe it. And what for? it has no relation To a topic subject. But has to note that local approach on legal sale of the medical tool is more preferable for the modeller. For example this disposable needle for anesthesia through a backbone not only a source of a long tubule but also very strong long thin wire: https://s10.postimg.org/dkfuru195/20180207_234345.jpg However there is one more source of receiving thin tubules of various big diameters! These are telescopic antennas for radio receivers: https://m.made-in-china.com/product/Antenna-Telescopic-Rod-Antenna-FM-Radio-Antenna-Radio-Antenna-275397.html I think possession of them legally?
