    O.K. Thanks Luigi. I understand your situation . Good luck. The most important is that it is not a re-boxed version. How are the clear parts (Canopy etc;;;) looking like ? Madcop.

    Eduard MiG-21MF in 72nd scale

    Hi Gabor. Thanks for this explanation. I'll sleep a little bit better now that I know that I can't be wrong with Turquoise as long as my model is "fresh from factory " ! Now for the fading effect, I'll see whether this Turquoise turned into a greener or bluer shade….subtility again Looking forward to read more of your work on this model. Madcop.

    Eduard MiG-21MF in 72nd scale

    Hi Gabor. May I allow me to ask you the last question ...before the next one…? One thing that surely keep me "unsafe" is the way these MiG-21S-SM-MF cockpits were painted. There are two or more different shades to be seen on different cockpit pictures. Green-Turquoise and Grey. Did Moscow Zavod proceed with one cockpit color (Green) and Gorkij Zavod with another one (Blue). When overhauled , could it be that these factory shades were repainted another shade , like grey or other ? When overhauled, were these aircrafts sent back to the factory from where they originated or were there overhauled in the country of active service ? MRP has a Turquoise shade for the MiG-21 and Early 23. This shade looks to me like green , more than like blue …. They also have a blue-grey tone for the MiG-15-17-19. I am CONFUSED ! Could you bring us a little light on this …. Thank-You. Madcop.

    Sword 1/72nd RF-84F Thunderflash

    Agree with you , especially in the nose air intake. Airfix is too squarish IIRC. At that time we used to "cannibalize" the two kits. Italaerei nose + Airfix for the rest . Madcop.

    Hi Gabor A big big THANKS for all your explanations. Your pictures are goldmines. Looking forward to see how you are going to " update, correct, rectify etc.…" the air intake and what "hidden place " we'll discover …. Bye for now . Madcop.

    Eduard MiG-21MF in 72nd scale

    Hi Gabor Thanks for this quick answer. I did as you but used flat sprue and too large ! I never managed to align them properly. I assume that the spacing between the inner welds are equal, and that the first one correspond to the outer scribed panel line... Could you tell us what's the distance between this scribed panel line and the cone side ( short end) trailing edge. That could be of some help as most of us do not have this kind of information. I just wish you were still producing some resin or other stuff. I still have your MiG-21 Detail set by PP Aeropart from 1989…… Jesus we're growing old ! Many , many thanks for your help. Madcop. P.S. I suppose that left and right side of the cone are the same design …...

    Hello Gabor. Great preparation work… I'm also busy with this tail cone ( and air intake) I had the same approach and I also tried to represent the weld lines. I say I tried cause all my efforts were vain. Can you explain how you managed to create these perfect circular and fitting weld lines. How did you get the right diameter and what material did you use ? I certainly missed one of the basics of modelling !. Thanks for your help and ….congratulations. Madcop.

    Sword 1/72nd RF-84F Thunderflash

    You all forgot to mention the top models of these birds. 1/72 F-84F and RF-84 from PJ Production issued in 2005 or 2006. Of course that's resin, but these are little gems ! Now for Sword as long as they revamp oldies but goodies ,and bring them up to date by correcting them, bringing new versions , adding resin or PE details that's O.K. for me. These are very nice kits. Eduard is just repacking other brand kits and just add some PE and resin… and nobody is crying ! Special Hobby is revisiting some CMR models...and people clap and clap …. I support SWORD models and I will definitely keep on buying these very abordable and nice kits ... Amen Madcop
  13. If I were you (but I am not) I would wait for the hypothetical Eduard bis, with all his future shortcomings and resin makeup armada, that can't be worse than the RV-AZ-KP. At least you'll have some masks and colour PE, hoping it's the good one ! Madcop
