  1. - Why does your hippo eat ice cream so badly? - Miss, visitors are not allowed to feed animals in the zoo! In addition, the hippo's head is on the other side! B.R. Serge
  2. As for my, in my collection the direction of evolution is important: What do we see in the diagram? The end point as the pinnacle of the evolution of the MiG-23MLD as a dog fight fighter and the MiG-23P as an interceptor, as start - MiG-23S. So, all what my need it's MiG-23S, MiG-23MLD and something in between MiG-23MF or MiG-23MS or MiG-23M. This is enough to show the minimum evolution of the MiG-23, as for my. For fighter-bomber model enough MiG-23BN and MiG-27K. This minimum. At maximum, with projects...I don't know were end! Wing 1st edition, wing 2nd edition, wing 3rd edition, naval version projects, two engine project version e.t.c, e.t.c. B.R. Serge P.S. But one markings will most likely not be there....
  3. In Japanese copy of Playboy? Of course F-4EJ stripped - without sheathing sheet! After reading these lines, somewhere in Fort Knox, the treasurers burst into tears, bank robbers howled in prisons.... with envy! B.R. Serge
  4. As I understand photo N3 it's Chinese post-card (!) I don't know how good mass printing was in China at that time ... In general two interesting conclusions can be drawn. The first one concerns guessing colors from black-and-white photos .... here in this topic, color photos, but nothing with color is clear! The second is Trumpeter absolute not very productive in terms of more coverage of the audience of modelers. All they had to do was add the number 01, another logo of the AVIC corporation, print one instruction sheet and they could get two more color options! All yellow in the primer and the two-tone camouflage option discussed here! By adding the inscription "Thunder" and the Chinese flag, it was possible to get a version of the layout and a version of the very first FС-1in yellow primer. In total, with a minimum cost of 6 options instead of the current 2! But more interesting camouflages. B.R. Serge
  5. Hi, all! Have two absolutely identical photo FC-1 first prototype N01: But where is true blue color? Also have other photos this FC-1 prototype 01: I marked the photo from one to five from top to bottom, you can vote for the blue color that you consider the most reliable. You can indicate your shade, it will be very good if you give arguments in favor of your choice. (Six question, traditional just for fun!) In order to finally confuse everything! 1.For Photoshop fans who like to tweak the white balance. Wing missiles will not work as a fulcrum! Because they are not white: ...oops! 2. 50 shadow Chinese blue: Link, because problem with copyright Airliners.net: https://www.airliners.net/photo/China-Air-Force/Shenyang-J-6A/1196708 But look as difference one shadow blue depending on the lighting! Decal interpretation: (FS34108???? Seriously??? Green???) Decal interpretation: Also difference FS35095 or FS35183 as blue. 3. Most interesting moment! Thanks to this, the topic: Have close shadow blue colour Myanmar Air Force's JF-17, first prototype FC-1 and JL-9: ....but, other photo JL-9, first prototype FC-1: Also have close blue shadow! Why did I have this question? The fact is that I actually have a model FC-1 from Trumpeter in 72nd scale ready for painting. I don't like the paint options out of the Trumpeter box, because I don't like mutants, where the plane bears a lot of insignia while being built in one country. Of course my interesting this blue color in the interpretation of paints GS or Tamiya.... The opinion @Thant would be very interesting in this topic! B.R. Serge P.S. scalemodels.ru user opinion was split in half on analogue topic.
  6. For good modelling issue it is necessary to take not 20 years! Airwar over Afghanistan - 93 years! Moreover, one of the aircraft lost over Afghanistan was the DH-9A from the expeditionary force in India, which was used for reconnaissance and which was shot down by local Afghan tribes. Afghanistan is also the first time that a ruler: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inayatullah_Khan used aircraft to flee his country: From Afghanistan was also organize a first mass evacuation on aircraft. When in just 84 flights, 584 people were taken out - no casualties! The total flight time was about 80 thousand km. Used for evacuation: De Havilland DH-9A, Vickers Victoria and Handley Page Hinaidi. During the Second World War, thanks to Soviet-British cooperation, there was no war in the air. Next was 10 years Soviet epoch airwar over Afghanistan where were the dog fights. And only then there were these 20 years! I think if you want to go beyond the 20-year air war over Afghanistan in your article, you will be happy to help here on the BM. BBC News, Russian Service, with reference to Wall Street Journal, The United States discusses with Moscow the possibility of using Russian military bases in Central Asia to act against possible threats in Afghanistan. Full news on Russian here: https://www.bbc.com/russian/features-58720436.amp I think you will not perceive British corporation BBC as Russian propaganda? Therefore, it is not a fact that Western planes will not fly over Afgagistan in 5 years. B.R. Serge
  7. Friends, do not be indifferent, help! This is a cute animal looking for a loving family. Puppy (as Lieutenant Ripley called her) is friendly and calm. In a short time, she learned several commands, such as: sit, give a paw and fetch. Let's help Puppy find new owners! Repost! B.R. Serge P.S. Friends, yous need to hurry, because these cute animals are eaten in criminal restaurants make them stuffed: http://scalemodels.ru/articles/15234-3d-pechat-1-16-ksenomorf.html !!! The posting was prepared with the assistance of the Association "Protection and safety of Xenomorph from human violence"!
  8. Aardvark without* links? You think badly of me! ( from posting Graf_Fridrih on 18 page and further) http://scalemodels.ru/modules/forum/viewtopic.php?t=83362&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=340 But what will it give You, everything is in Russian? B.w. ICM announced yet 1/24 Ford-А/GAZ-А truck. ______________ *-no, of course there are times when I witnessed some events about which there is nothing on the Internet, and there are no documents ... but then I write about it and say: "You can believe me or not, this is your right." But what was posted here by me on the news Zvezda and ICM is not the case!
  9. Only posting in topics on Russian modeling forums! Of course, if it’s a stupid joke, then it’s unsuccessful. Nevertheless, the messages about Zvezda's new products are confirmed by entries on their page in the Russian social network Vkontakte. B.w. Zvezda announced the T-72M3 and Maus in 72nd scale. B.R. Serge
  10. Not patriotic, not a Zvezda - does not count! In addition, an import substitution program has been announced in Mother Russia! Also, have not the West imposed sanctions on the supply LZmodels F35025 to Mother Russia? After all, this model of LZmodels F35025 production is critically (almost like glass beads for Indians!) important for Mother Russia !! Only 1:24 how to fulfill the program of the government of the Russian Federation to expand the production of affordable housing for the population! In Zvezda An-124 Ruslan in 24th scale two plastic jet engine will be used for air conditioning the living space inside, other two plastic jet engine will generate electricity using wind! In case there is no wind, there is a backup generator with pedaling like in a bicycle, but this will be an additional series An-124 1/24 Zvezda limited edition! Su-25 future released 48scale Zvezda in 2022, it's officially, it's no secret items! B.R. Serge
  11. It is unlikely, because in relation to this aircraft in the Soviet Air Force there was a saying: "Are you my friend or Hempden?" Have version about Su-75 as secret items, but it's also unlikely because there was heated debate about him. B.R. Serge
  12. Agree, in the spelling there is a second L, in the spoken language the second L is swallowed and Gorilka and the Gorillka- "little Gorilla" sound the same. Which is naturally a reason for jokes and puns, which I tried to beat. Therefore, for the Russian-speaking phrase: "Let's go strike the Gorilka!"/ "Пойдем ударим по горилке!" will be a completely understandable invitation to drink, for a foreigner, especially not familiar with Gorilka, such a phrase will be somewhat strange: "Why should we go strike the little Gorilla?" B.R. Serge
  13. horilka? It's a little baby-Gorilla*?! Monkey & alcohol it's dangerous combination on @Learstang street! B.R. Serge ______________ * - no difference in Russian language, Горилка- Gorilka is like "vodka" and Горилка - Gorilka is like a little gorilla!
  14. Will be new version's C-130 in 1/72! B.R. Serge
  15. On the link, it's no Modelsvit! But on the link, it's other technologie mold than ICM work, besides, I already said everything in that topic. B.R. Serge
