  2. What music are you playing? Pt III

    Leningrad."Native". Attention! Contains "naturalistic" scenes violence over: - St. Petersburg ninjia; - St. Petersburg street mugger; - St. Petersburg fat street muggers; - cat. and also: - drinkings of alcohol; - sports trousers; - unauthorized use of electricity without license of the power supplying company; - concert activity without license in the place unappropriated for this purpose. If you the member of society "St. Petersburg Street Mugger", "St. Petersburg Ninjia" or their fan , worker or owner power supplying company, please don't watch this clip, in order to avoid mental frustration! I warned! (irony) Actually in the clip very strong vocal the lead singer of group Leningrad Sergey Shnurov, the video series of the clip is stylized as it seems me under some computer game (I don't know what, (Mortal Combat?) I am not a fan of such games), and in the clip the real faces of participants of group Leningrad, such as Sergey Shnurov, Alice Voks and others are animated. B.R. Serge P. S. Leningrad has many interesting music videos from a point of sight of a plot both directions and very good and strong female vocal, but in music the clip are used Russians idiomatic (obscene)* expressions and also the scenes of the shocking character (removed in irony) therefore, I haven't decided to post a link on them. However, you can estimate them on the channel YouTube of group Leningrad. ______________________________ * - but the Russian idiomatic (obscene) expressions aren't forbidden by the rules Britmodeller?
  3. Maintrack "Project-X" kits

    John, but problems which have been revealed in the course of your building: haven't dissuaded me to buy the same set! After all for persons interested to have Supermarin 508 it without alternative! Whether I will go on your solution of problems of this set or not I don't know because this model in way. B.R. Serge
  4. As I reed book A.Fomin "Su-27.Fighter story". T-10-10 in 1984 year was study exponate "Kiev high military aviation ingenering scool".Now this plane in Luganask museum. T-10-9 in 1984 year was study exponate "Riga high military aviation ingenering scool". Now status unknown. T-10-5 in 1984 year was study exponate "Academy PVO (Air Defence) Tver". T-10-11 in Academy Zhukovski.Now status unknown. Not write in book- T-10-3 was when USSR ending in airfild Saky, Crimea and maybe sold ukranians with prototype Su-33 - T-10K-7 in China. Total. In theory maybe live T-10-3,T-10-5, T-10-9,T-10-11 + T-10-1 & T-10-10. T-10-2 was crush, T-10-6 was die in fire. T-10-4 was scrap. T-10-7 & T-10-8 was T-10C-1 & T-10C-2 prototype Su-27. Then maybe 6 T-10 live from 9 develop. It's no bad! B.R. Serge
  5. Cockpit colour of early US Navy jets?

    Sir, I have already found him: also I have written the comment there! Unfortunately, my knowledge is possibly not enough to find the answer to my question in yours the blog. Because I haven't seen a mention of FJ-1 in your article! Yes, in your article any questions on coloring cockpit of FJ-2/3 & FJ-4, but FJ-1 mention perfectly are removed, sorry, I haven't seen... Could you, how to write the conventional authority on area of US navy planes, who has made a mistake in identification colour cockpit FJ-1 : - Valom? - Siga? .... or model maikers in 1/48? B.R. Serge
  6. Cockpit colour of early US Navy jets?

    FJ-1 maked with P-51 on one line? Late cockpit interior colour P-51 is a Interior Green? But F-86 was late FJ-1? I think FJ-1 the father F-86 and not vice versa. Or so to say the first XP-86 with direct wing anb FJ-1 these are the baby birds who have hatched from one nest. What we see at this photo cockpit FJ-1: Deck is black, but other colour as I see no black. Is or grey.....or green...but no black! B.R. Serge P.S. The situation with instructions to models begins to clear up. Valom instruction is based on photo a cockpit from "Detal&Scale FJ Fury" This photo in D&S from the museum. Such, as: 21922 Resource: https://airandspace.si.edu/collection-objects/north-american-fj-1-fury But we know that restoration in the museums not always happens good in questions of accuracy of color! As I have understood a Siga just interprets a black-and-white photo of a cabin which I gave above as the medium gray, the producer in 48th scale treats a black-and-white photo of a cabin as interior green. pfffffffffff.... whether there is no at an option forum "computer remove two wrong options!"? If there is no that I will use the option "Call Tailhooktopics!" http://tailhooktopics.blogspot.com/2015/04/cockpits.html B.R. Serge
  7. Short Jokes II The Sequel

    Tea break it is still normal! There are many armys where well carry out only the first exercise - only to dismantle, further the special discipline "overcoming with details of check-point (or protections of military base) and race against time before the black market trading in military spare parts and ammunition begins"! B.R. Serge
  8. Cockpit colour of early US Navy jets?

    Hi, all! I can't find as the interior a cockpit was painted FJ-1 Fury. Valom by shaft as almost black FS 36081 what doesn't correspond to a photo a cockpit in the Naval Fighter. A Siga cockpit as the medium gray specifies color but doesn't specify the standard of color. On model in the 48th scale from internet the interior a cockpit is painted in interior green FS 34151. Where truth? Article on coloring a cockpit of early USN jet in http://tailspintopics.blogspot.co.uk/ (?) seemed to me...... but I can't find her! B.R. Serge
  9. But bad aircraft! Academic G.Bushgens https://ru.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Бюшгенс,_Георгий_Сергеевич remember: "I as the representative of TsAGI reported our concept. The scheme of a trapezoid wing with the rejected sock was the cornerstone of her. We have found very interesting thing. If on a wing to make sharp root flow, the peculiar pointed profile, then the most powerful whirlwind is induced there. In this tuft there is a depression which settles down over a wing. It causes huge carrying power. In one and a half it is more time, than usually. We also have suggested to put this effect on arms. And in order that the wing worked at big angles of attack, we suggested to make the rejected noses on other part of a wing. That is to adjust a profile in order that it was flowed round from a sock without stream separation. And we managed it. As a result, if to lower other technical details which are clear only to experts with a big carrying power at us the front resistance of air has also sharply decreased. So, at the same draft that was earlier, on big angles of attack we received the big carrying power and still big maneuverability, could change easily a flight trajectory at very big speeds." "TsAGI then very actively worked with MiG, having offered him that wing which we have developed. And they have accepted him. And at "Su" there was the vision of a new wing. They have come to the decision which seemed to us doubtful. This doubt consisted in the following. If we formed those whirlwinds only in the central part of a wing the flow then rejected by a sock protected other part from failures. And they have decided to make a sharp edge on all wing, that is to specially form whirlwinds and failures. At an exit to big angles of attack as then it was found, jolting and fluctuations of all plane appeared. All this was confirmed in the course of flight tests. And so "Su" persistently defended the, in my opinion, wrong position." resource: http://nvo.ng.ru/history/2007-07-20/5_wings.html As result doing the plane for maneuverable fight, they have received the fighter not capable to dog-fight! Moreover due to increase in weight of the equipment by results of computer modeling 100 F-15 it was necessary for an equivalent of power 135 T-10 though the Air Force demanded on the contrary! Therefore T-10 him had to be redesigned in T-10C which is known as Su-27, and 100 Su-27 according to the computer are already necessary for a power equivalent 135 F-15, as well as the Air Force wanted. It is by the way a typical example of inaccuracy of the expression attributed to Americans: "Aerodynamics for those who has no power enjine!" As result Soviet Air Force have very danger fighter who was not only paritet with West figter, but have superiority in IRST & missile R-73 integrated with helmet targeting. T-10 disproves also the expression attributed A.N. Tupolev " Beautiful plane - well flying!" In the general T-10 epic fail - Su-27 epic win! But Su-27 it's other story! B.R. Serge
  10. Short Jokes II The Sequel

    "There's nothing to see! Go home!" Has reminded an episode with Leslie Nielsen from Police Squad or The Naked Gun (I don't remember) B.R. Serge P.S. Yepppp, it was from "The Naked Gun":
  11. On topic scalemodels.ru posted photo "Zvezda" stend with FW-190A or F........she is so big for 72nd scale.... B.R. Serge
  12. Yeeeppp, for AMK it's new box, instructions, decal and new separate sprus with re-made details C15, C16, C17, C18, C29, C30. But new box, instructions & decal it's most difficult for AMK, as I am understand!!!! B.R. Serge
  13. Short Jokes II The Sequel

    When many modellers assembly models for months and years (as I am, too ), "Russian military modellers", his big scale models ( it's secret models from "Zvezda"? ) not only assembly, but unassembly too for short time: B.R. Serge P.S. Many for a while can sort Kalashnikov (including I am), but that UAZ.... interestingly, and so somebody will be able to sort and assemble the tank?
  14. As it isn't strange, but only one walkarounds: http://walkarounds.scalemodels.ru/v/walkarounds/avia/after_1950/Sukhoi_T-10/ And this walkarounds T-10-10 from Lugansk. No walkarounds T-10-1 from Monino! List prototype here: http://www.airbase.ru/hangar/planes/russia/su/t10all-t.htm but there is a lot of unclear. T-10 is very poorly studied prototype. T-10-10 it of course is interesting, but I more like T-10-1 because his have rare for Soviet Air Force camouflage type warp around. B.R. Serge
