  1. With a Swed camouflage sharkmount: or with a cobrafangs: ????? Because every animal research scientist say about differences cobra and shark, but GB name "Shark-Mouths" not a "Cobra-fangs" GB!!! Cobra will not comply with the rules ??? B.w. this Su-27 have in Begemot decal, and this one aircraft with difference style teeth! Resource photo: B.R. Serge
  2. Now I know for sure that curses in three languages: have also been added with curses in Czech and Slovak! Yes, but if one apple some rotten and with worms, other not....should there be a price difference between them? B.R. Serge
  3. B.w. January 14 marks the 70th anniversary of the first flight of the MiG-17! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikoyan-Gurevich_MiG-17 Anniversary! Congratulations and salute from all the guns! B.R. Serge
  4. This model in my opinion has the following disadvantages: - No anything in intake this kit, (but turbofan visible on real aircraft); - poor interior wheel bay. For this model was also photoetched from two manufacturing. B.R. Serge
  5. ....and get him to design your new 1/72nd Javelin to go with it....!! Why such trifles? I think he should be appointed head of the board of shareholders of the company! B.R. Serge
  6. When I have a not accurate Soviet airbrush single action, I made a copy of the instructions modell on Xerox and then burned holes in the paper with a wood burner, another way was to transfer the spots from the instruction onto a sheet of chocolate foil and then break through the foil in the form of a spot. The influence of the Me-262 on Soviet developments is somewhat exaggerated unlike engines, but I will listen with interest to Your version of the "influence of the Me-262 on Soviet developments" It is already Spetnaz Schnauzer! Because many Soviet / post-Soviet police spetnaz OMON / SOBR (analogue S.W.A.T) carry pull over with red stripes: Therefore, if your Schnauzer once barks: "Open the refrigerator! Get the food! Everyone lie face down! Hands behind your head! OMON work!" do not be surprised, and do not resist! Ahhh, Kirk Douglas was in spetsnaz!!! B.R. Serge P.S. Pretend to be awarded Medal "For strengthening international police cooperation "???
  7. "In 1971, by order of the Ministry of Heavy Engineering, Uralmashzavod entered the production association as the parent enterprise of Uralmash Production Association (ПО "Уралмаш")." Thus, according to Russian Wikipedia, the name Uralmash first appeared in the Soviet era in 1971. Most likely in this way the popular name was legalized. The fact is that constantly talking "Ural Heavy Machinery Building" (as well as writing in business correspondence) is hard enough, so there could be an unofficial name Uralmash, because, for example, you are unlikely to hear in conversation "I work on "Robert Bosch Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung" factory", usually say "I work on Bosch factory", as also some residents Yekaterinburg do not say the full name of the city but shorten it as "Joburg", which by the way was from 1924 to 1991 Sverdlovsk city. Of course I don’t understand anything in the T-34, but in my city have T-34-76 with similar Turret if You need any details of this tank, I can take photos for You. B.R. Serge
  8. This Revell MiG-25 had a bad Reputation not only in the U.S. at least around Chicago, this Revell MiG-25 had a bad Reputation in all civilians world!!!! B.R. Serge
  9. You are basically right. The teeth were not distributed in the Soviet Air Force period WWII, because it was believed that the more nose art on the plane, the more it attracts the attention of the enemy, the more likely it will be shoot down! Therefore, only real aces could afford painting, such as here, as G.Kostylov or A.Barsht After WW2 Soviet Air Force almoust don't paint any nose-art, renaissance was from end 1980 and probably before 2000, after 2000 nose art also rare. Shark month it remains only where it has already become a tradition since the 80s as respect for the past, while everything very much depends on the command. Hmmmm, as minimum do You want to convince me that You have never met these Zvezda models: or this MiG-25: from Revell? I am surprised! B.R. Serge
  10. ....or Siberia Airlines shoot down over Black Sea: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siberia_Airlines_Flight_1812 as can be understood from the above link, the state which itself did not pay compensation for the plane, did not plead guilty, did not punish the guilty, now demands that it do it another state.... Okay, let’s leave these anologies and consider strange details about the flight from Iran. On some Russian internet resource posting this picture (I don't know fake this or not!) flights departing before and after the downed plane: If this true, then strange mistake the operator who took the plane for a cruise missile where out of 176 people on board 157 ( other version 130) people took tickets on an Iranian passport, however, most of them were of Iranian descent and had dual citizenship. As you understand, in the event of the downing of any other aircraft from those flying on the same day, the reaction would have been stronger. The next point is that, according to some resources, TOR was handed over to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard corps (led by the murdered Qasem Soleimani) from the Iranian armed forces shortly before. You say so what? The problem is that Iran is not monolithic in matters of relations with the West, of course there are warring groups, some of which believe that it is necessary to make concessions to the West and agree on any conditions to lift sanctions, while other groups naturally do not think so. But even among those who want to negotiate, there are differences, because some want to negotiate with the Democrats, and others with the Republicans. At rumors murdered Qasem Soleimani was among those who had contacts with the Democrats.... Next to continue or do understand? And this is only a small part of the mosaic which is slightly opened, so the opinion that the two leaders are measured in size is somewhat primitive and simplified. Against this background, the downing of a Boeing can be both a tragic mistake and can be monstrous games of various leaders and government group, but we will never know about these games. But each person decides the need for such knowledge for himself, just like each person decides for himself whether to let models out of the box, by limiting himself and trusting the model manufacturer or to search for information, photos, drawings and rivets himself. In any case, life is beautiful and amazing, so appreciate every moment of it and let there be as little bad news as possible in your life, like the one we are discussing in this topic! B.R. Serge P.S. As I understand it, according to statistics, the plane is still the safest mode of transport no matter what!
  11. Whaaaaat???? If this don't shark-mouths???? Maybe this don't shark-mouths: ???? Or this don't shark-mouths: ???? So then what about shark-mouths? I am outraged by Western double standards in the area of shark-mouths and intend to file a lawsuit and apply to the World shark-mouths league with complaining about @Corsairfoxfouruncle! Let personal sanctions World shark-mouths league be introduced against him !!! B.R. Serge P.S. But in the early & late Soviet period, more gravitated to crocodiles teeth! Because all reading and love satirical magazine "Crocodile": As examples: 1977 years sketch from "Crocodile" The inscription on the display: "Stop! Arms race!"
  12. All MiG-23 have wrong nose part. The situation is being improved by the correction set from Prop-n-Jet, but it has not been on sale for a long time, in addition, an error has been noticed in it, because of which Prop-n-Jet does not want to resume its release.... WOW...Impressive! Pizza delivery?? .. but where is jet engine? B.R. Serge
  13. I never liked her Big Mac recipe with lard and garlic, the classic Big Mac recipe from her brother Cesare Borgia was better! Hurrah! My maskirovka has worked Benedikt! So this is what you look like ... North Korea's: secret ballistic missile program! The guys from Airfix also thought so when they started to make their MiG-17s, now they know how curses sound modeller's in at least three languages - Russian, English and Hungarian! B.R. Serge
  14. Pete, Your wife needs a lawsuit over this jury!! After all, they deceived You by promising that she would work for two weeks and instead she work for two hours! This is pure deception and fraud !!! Also, think about Your moral damages! After all, after spending less time on the models, You probably are experiencing a breakdown (here you need a helper from the doctor! It is advisable that the doctor also be a modeller !!! ) and depression! And what kind of depression does Your wife have that they did not allow her to fully reveal her potential in the jury ?! But even if Your wife does not win this lawsuit, You will still win, because while she will go to court You will make models !!!! B.R. Serge P.S. Just kidding of course !!!
  15. I probably know what the P.1154 cockpit was based on! But let's get it in order! Many have advised me to take the P.1127 cockpit as a basis, but the P.1127 cockpit is the cockpit of an experimental aircraft that is not equipped with weapons or a radar. B.w. until SHAR Hawker did not have any serial combat aircraft with radar, so based on Sea Hawk, Hunter or P.1127/Harrier/Kestrel family is useless. So, when this based on project predecessor! But which ones? As I think cockpit early iteration P.1154 based on cocpit Hawker P.1121 or his interceptor predecessor P.1103. For those who can read the drawings, here is the cockpit P.1121 and here is the cutaway of the late iteration P.1154. As you see the location, the gun slight and the tube radar in the front cockpit are similar! So now the question is, what was in the rear cockpit of P.1103? B.R. Serge
