  1. I do have a few questions while looking into what type of MiG-19 to create..it will be Eastern bloc for sure. What stencils did this aircraft have? Hoping to add more detail with them if they were indeed covered? Needing to create a cockpit tub, I was hoping to use parts in the spares box but nothing suitable- not fussed about resin inserts etc for this so any pointers would be good
  2. A growing interest in Cold War MiGs and an eye on (new) moulds of older kits by ZTS Plastyk, I think this one was copied from PM moulds? Reading across the web I found a lot of mixed reactions about what you actually get from one of these so wanting a MiG-19 with engraved detail I got one to see what was good and bad about a ZTS Plastyk kit. I was very happy with what I found on opening! The panel lines are very neatly engraved and form a good basis to add more detail if I feel like it. The a plastic used was rock hard (and a nice mint green) but sands down well so far with the main parts cleaned up to use.
  3. I have the Tasukuda Hobby version of this so interested in how you approached the horizontal split fuselage
  4. I have this on the go too, a great kit. There are some etch sets that suit this also
  5. So the 1/72 SMER version is the same as the Italeri/bilek mould?
  6. Thanks. The Italeri/Bilek version is the one to look for then! cheers
  7. Is this kit any good? 1/72 Eastern express Su-17M4
  8. Could i get away with the same fuselage shape?
  9. How much effort would converting the 1/72 P-40B into an earlier P-36? I have the engine cowl parts from an old revell P-36 (probably this kit?) and wondering if it simply a graft of the engine?? Hoping for advise
  10. Hi this is good, thanks for the link
  11. I am sure this has been covered before! So hoping no one minds me posting about the colour used in Soviet Cold War Jets... Looking to start one of my 1/72 Soviet Jets from the pile, SU-25, SU-9 or Mig 21 Mongol. Going to use a Citadel paint called Temple Guard Blue as this looks a good choice (may need to a a bit of Snot Green!). Has anyone else used the colour or what do you use for these aircraft?
  12. Enjoyed this model when I made it, lots of scope for detail!! Enjoy
  13. Ah thanks for that gingerbob. Would you know colours the Vs would have carried in this case?
  14. Thanks. There are some good schemes and wonderful build too. Discovered that Mk.Vs were delivered to 139 Squadron RAF (Horsham St Faith, June 1942) for only a few months until they were replaced by Mosquitos, the Mk.V was heavy and not suited according to the Air Ministry! 139 Sqn look to be a Pathfinder Squadron? so guessing the new Blenheims would share a similar scheme to the later Mosquitos?
  15. Starting a conversion of the ‘new’ 1/72 Airfix Blenheim IV very soon (using MPM V parts) so swotting up on details of this rather ugly (in my view) but curious Mk.V bomber version of this aircraft. Having got hold of a few pieces of info - squadron signal and warpaint books- Hoping others here might aid in sharing any knowledge of the type, therefore I have a few questions below. Schemes? Having found evidence of RAF desert and Helenic scheme use (some great builds already found here and on the www) I am wondering and hoping that the Mk.V would have been produced in any other RAF schemes. I have read already that this Blenheim was used in a number of training and testing capacities (including training Mosquito crews) Interior? This odd looking nose arrangement, Am I right to think this was due to the introduction of more armour? Would the inside of the nose/ nav compartment look similar or match the Mk.IV? Was the nose turret detachable? Did the type have a life in the RAF post WW2? Cheers PT
