  1. I photographed something similar on the street of St. Petersburg in May 2015.
  2. Now a MiG-29 flight in Russia costs around $ 13,000. The price may vary depending on the duration and selected flight program.
  3. Yes, Dave, you're right, there may be different solutions. Fortunately, at 1/35 scale, this element will be practically invisible, so I'll just make rivets and screws, as seen in the photos. Thank you for your suggestions about the design!
  4. I saw a good shot in the movie. I'll save this screenshot here. The detailing is clearly visible. It may be useful to someone who will still build Brave Borderer.
  5. And I will make one or two more parts on my assembly before Christmas... (Said the turtle, looking at the sprinters.)
  6. Yes, you're probably right. It's a shame that there are no good detailed photos with detailing. And there are no people who served on Brave Borderer, there are so many questions I want to ask them!
  7. It seems to me that a large horizontal plate with large nuts should be removable. Under it there are hydraulic cylinders controlling the trimmer plate. These cylinders must be accessible for repair and maintenance. Therefore, it is impossible to attach it with rivets to the rear vertical plate. Or did I misunderstand your words?
  8. I study the location of rivets and bolts on the transom shelf. It is clear with all of them, except for the small ones located along the upper edge. Marked them in red. I can't understand why they are there. There's nothing to hold with rivets. I don't like doing things I don't understand. I drew a simple sketch - a view of the transom shelf from the side of the ship. What do you think these rivets are for?
  9. As I wrote here earlier, I decided to make drain holes in the transom shelf. No such holes are visible on any Brave Borderer model that I could find on the Internet, rivets or bolts are made there instead of holes. But, relying on the few photographs and drawings that I have, I could not find a single contradiction to my idea. But where the water drained from the shelf, if there are no holes, I do not understand. So I made holes! The holes match well with the small squares in the drawing. I think this is a very plausible version of the transom shelf. Maybe I'm wrong and don't know something. If someone has arguments for or against, please share, it will be very useful.
  10. It's probably easier to name planes where it wasn't used. Here is an article about the R-60 rocket. The article is in Russian, but I hope Google translator will help you understand. R-60 / R-60M - AA-8 APHID
  11. Beautiful products! In the first photo, they look like jewelry made of gold.
  12. In 1975, the lead batch of APU-60-II aircraft launchers was released. They are a modification of the APU-60-III launcher that was originally developed and did not go into the series. The APU-60-II launcher allows simultaneous suspension of two R-60 missiles. APU-60-II is structurally a beam consisting of a frame and two pylons put on it. Electrical equipment (communication, power supply, control, delay units) is placed inside the frame; in the pylon there is an electromechanical lock, an anti—vibration mechanism and a mechanism for cutting off the electric lift of the rocket. To reduce aerodynamic drag, front and rear fairings are installed on the APU-60-II. The frame and pylons are made of lightweight and durable aluminum profile. The pylons have rail guides with a special hard coating. Structurally, the pylons are completely interchangeable with the pylons included in the starting devices of all modifications of the APU-60-I. The mounting of the APU-60-II on aircraft is carried out through a beam holder by means of eye bolts. The APU-60-II aircraft launcher was produced in right and left versions to ensure the symmetry of the suspension on the carrier. The main tactical and technical characteristics of the APU-60-II Weight - no more than 71 kg; Dimensions - 2020x250x335 mm; The force of the rocket descent is 120 ± 60 kgf; The number of launches from one APU is 150.
  13. And how does oil oxidation work? I always thought that oil, on the contrary, would protect copper from oxidation by air and moisture. Or do I misunderstand the process?
  14. Depth charges are good! Tie them up faster, it seems that they are about to roll into the water!
  15. For some time now, I have been trying all the paints and impregnations first on an experimental small part that can be thrown away. And only then on the model. I hope everything will be fine with your ship.
  16. For a long time I thought about what material to make a stern shelf from. There are small details and it is difficult to make from wood. The most correct thing is to solder from metal, but I will not be able to solder such a complex structure. Therefore, I decided to make it out of plastic. There will be no mechanical load on the aft shelf, so plastic is suitable. Cut up the details. When gluing, I control the angle of 90 degrees. The skeleton of the shelf began to appear.
  17. I started making a stern shelf. The general view is clear. Small internal details are unclear. The most important question is how the water poured out of it, which got inside the shelf from waves, splashes and rain. A row of rivets or bolts is visible from the bottom side of the shelf. I assume these are holes for draining water from the shelf. But I'm not sure about that. And this is a model of a modeler from New Zealand. He worked out the details very well and it is clearly visible here that there are recesses in the shelf from which water needs to be drained out.
  18. I was interested in the photo of the cabin double holes in the upper part of the doors. Handles are usually attached there. Is it for opening doors with your fingers? And is the horizontal strip between the holes a slot or a rope instead of a handle? Excuse me for asking stupid unimportant questions again.
  19. There's something like this, but in a Russian search engine. There are slightly fewer photos in Google for the same request. sa-kuva Blenheim
  20. You've probably already seen it, but maybe it will help. Link to the photo of the Finnish Blenheim's Aviation Museum in Finland
  21. Yes, the export T-72S tanks manufactured for Iran had no ZIP box on the left side of the tower. I do not know whether or not these boxes were installed on tanks that remained in Russia . Some links that may be useful. It's in Russian, but I think Google translator will help you understand.
