    RAF Germay 1980's

    Great build! But the Bloodhounds at RAF Bawdsey were never that close together

    Matchbox kits...

    Some observations HS 125: very fragile canopy windows. Anyone who can glue it in without breaking it deserves a medal! New mould please Mig-21 PK-19: inaccurate fuselarge when compared to plans Was PK-41 any better? At leat varient "MF" described. F-86A Sabre: Like to read reviews about this that every manufacturer has shied away from. Why????? Airfix missed a trick with this varient. Future wish list: Siskin Provost Wesley Jaguar T2 F-86A.
  3. Hi all If I wish to finish Mig-21MF in Egyptian colours, do I purchase the earlier release (Gorky production variant, or latest (moscow) production variant?

    Converting Eduard's 1/72 Mig-21MF to Mig-21FL

    Thanks Troy for your comprehensive reply. Patience seems to be the operative word here.
  12. Hi all I've been looking at sprue shots of the new Eduard kit and I cannot tell if there is an option for a vertically straight exhaust pipe for the earlier R-11F-300 engine. Sprue shots clearly show the correct MF 'stepped' exhaust ring. If I'm not mistaken, this is the main difference between the MF and FL. Others include radar and canopy mirror. The FL was an export version. The Egyption AF had some in 1973.
