  1. Well, I know a whole company that has it stable! The VES was called. True, we say: "Stability, a sign - skill!" B.R. Serge
  2. This is most likely a problem of deformation of one of the halves, probably some sprue was pushed out of the mold too early. It was necessary to remove the inner profile using a template and make an inner plastic insert that would simply lift up one of the fuselage halves. B.R. Serge
  3. Most funny, design 1942-1945: modern design drone-kamikaze "Lancet-3": "Everything new is well forgotten old" B.R. Serge
  4. Hi, Dennis! As far as I know - not, but developments tend to migrate and sometimes the model expected from one firm comes out from another. This is rare, but it happens, so I will not be categorical in my statements. Sorry, without comments. I tell them the same thing! B.R. Serge
  5. "some damage caused to the moulds" & "someone who is not longer in a position to make such decisions" Are these events related to each other? Could the meeting of very respect shareholders , not seeing profit, simply hit "someone who is not longer in a position to make such decisions" with a moulds on Swift, as a result of which we have a "some damage caused to the moulds" and a broken "someone who is not longer in a position to make such decisions"! By the way, for my part, I did everything possible to
  6. I should be in her place! B.R. Serge P.S. What is the name of this cat breed?
  7. So, are You saying that J-20 is J-8B on steroids? Mighty steroid Dragon? Sensation hypothesis!!! B.w. I came across a no less sensational article here, where the author gives an unfounded hypothesis that the D-8 is based ..... drum roll .... on the Sukhoi T-5 !!!! As a demonstrative attempt to pull an owl onto the globe , even even a photo is given: http://alternathistory.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/27796_800.jpg http://alternathistory.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/28122_800.jpg http://alternathistory.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11
  8. I know one where not use RLM81 and RLM82: B.R. Serge
  9. No miracle for 72nd scale. B.R. Serge
  10. Is this three-blade propeller, on photo, also included in the Tu-128 Trumpeter kit? For Tu-128TP? Do not be upset about the ejection seats KT-1 from NeOmega, because the A-models Tu-128 also have problems with them. Ejection seats KT-1 from NeOmega also too big for A-model cockpit. This may be due to the fact that NeOmega ejection seats were originally made for the Tu-22M model and were part of its cockpit aftermarket detail set. B.R. Serge
  11. Two portraits (to each!) Anushavan Ovanesovich Mikoyan (Mikhail Iosifovich Gurevich portraits optional on additional request!) this comrade! But I don't think that the MiG-17PF will be, because they have poor Dragon repack ordinary MiG-17 in own catalog. Yak-38 maybe will be, but I'm not sure if it will be a Zvezda. In general, there was a hint that there will be two new items in 72nd scale. B.R. Serge
  12. Bf.109TL & Me.262 these are structurally different aircraft, while Bf.109TL is a project and Me.262 is its evolutionary development embodied in metal. In the case of the aircraft shown here, their projects were not embodied in real samples, so do I understand correctly that You are proposing to go not to conformity with real paper projects, but to conformity with a certain ephemeral fantasy that exists only in the heads of model manufacturers developers, and does this fantasy of modelers exist only because they were too lazy to collect and study documentation on these projects? Or
  13. I have B.V.211, B.V.212 & F.W. P.II....B.V.212 I build....and exchange on some as unbuild B.V.212 .. So I have a couple of pennies on these models: - B.V. 211 not bad but have problem with section fuselage where the rear of the engine ends and the tail boom begins; - B.V.212 have only problem with uncorrect view main wheel bay; - F.W. P.II - it's catastrophic model, because as I think this project have tail, fin and adapted wing as on FW-190D or Ta-152H, in addition, the nose section with canopy was most likely like Flitzer, engine nacell was probably closer to Me-262
  14. Different Shark-Mouths MiG-27 probably M or D, not K: https://m.vk.com/album368455190_254704325?z=photo368455190_456243607%2Falbum368455190_254704325 https://m.vk.com/album368455190_254704325?z=photo368455190_457248267%2Falbum368455190_254704325 https://m.vk.com/album368455190_254704325?z=photo368455190_457248268%2Falbum368455190_254704325 https://m.vk.com/album368455190_254704325?z=photo368455190_457248863%2Falbum368455190_254704325 https://m.vk.com/album368455190_254704325?z=photo368455190_457248862%2Falbum368455190_254704325
  15. Sorry, but I am mainly interested in planes in the paint of the country of the manufacturer of this plane. Therefore, what was there in the Warsaw Pact I have no idea. However, before this topic , I had no idea that there are two different Su-17s ..... of course I did not, yeah! As I wrote, Kazakhstani MiG-27s as an interceptor: - in clear intercept role: https://m.vk.com/album368455190_254704325?z=photo368455190_457248874%2Falbum368455190_254704325 https://m.vk.com/album368455190_254704325?z=photo368455190_457248879%2Fa
  16. Because it was a component of the Russian Martian program: @Martian will confirm the veracity of my words, because he saw everything that is under the link in the video on YouTube directly to Mars! You ask: "What does the MiG-19 have to do with Mars?" Well, how could a farmer get to Mars? Only on the MiG-19! B.R. Serge
  17. In North Korea, Cuba, by definition, there was no money, nevertheless, for some reason they not only did not fall apart and did not capitulate, but also developed their military-industrial potential ... therefore, it is not about money. By the way, the main reasons for the deterioration of the financial situation in the USSR include the anti-alcohol campaign, which led to a lack of revenue in the budget and the creation of cooperatives that brought money out of legal circulation into the shadow economic sector, both decisions were made by directive in 1985 and 1987, respectively; by 1989, a sh
  18. Hi, all! Probably, this work on guided aerial bombs of the Red Army Air Force pre-war and WW2 will be of interest to someone. 1. Self-Guided photocontrast air bombs KAB-436 and KAB-5103 (design NII-24) tasted from 1939 to 1941: Bomb KAB-436 - anti ship bomb - " cruiser/ battleship killer" 2. TV-controlled airbomb TUB (Design LIIS) 1942 -project: 3. Self-Guiding Infrared air bomb SB1-M (design VEI) Work from 1942 to 1945, tasted in 1945, late infrared head used on post war self-guiding Infrared
  19. Original Shark-Mouths on Mirage 2000 N: Founded here: https://www.mct57.org/ezgallery.php?su=user&cat=85&u=4 B.R. Serge
  20. B.w. other photo with grey colour radome SM-12PM further development of the MiG-19: Another interesting photo of a MiG-17PF taken by a DS-8 stewardess (on the photo with Soviet "papiroses" - cigarettes without a filter ) : during its interception and subsequent forced landing at the Soviet airfield Burevestnik, Kuril Islands in 1968 (known also as "Iturup incident" https://topwar.ru/19237-iturupskiy-incident-1968-goda.html ) : What's the color of the radar here? Gray or Green? The photo was subsequently published by the Times magazine, mayb
  21. So, Pete, taking into account your knowledge of geography, it will not be difficult for you to look at the map of the Russian Federation and its neighboring states that were previously part of the USSR and compare this with the conflicts that occur there. Problems in Moldova, it was predicted for a long time, but now only the first stage is taking place, the second stage will be the defrosting of the frozen conflict of 1992, I think this will happen closer to the middle of 2021 (maximum 2024-2025), while an aggravation will begin here, problems in Belarus will intensify, possibly a restart K
  22. Pete, as the answer promised. Basically, the Heller missile is quite similar to the original, I only see problems with the nose tip, rear end and steering surfaces. Steering surfaces it is best to cut it from a thin sheet of plastic with a thickness of 0.15-0.2 mm, such plastic is usually found in food packages, the main thing is to correctly draw the contours on the plastic according to the drawings and then cut it off with a knife or scissors. Rear end, here it is difficult, here either need to choose a similar shape or make new ones according to the drawing from the
  23. Not really. K-36D-5 is indeed installed on the Su-35S: http://www.zvezda-npp.ru/sites/default/files/styles/850x530/public/uploads/product_images/k36d_5_0.jpg?itok=L06ocEVz http://www.zvezda-npp.ru/ru/node/118 the problem is that it is not on the aftermarket at 1/48. There is only a predecessor K-36D-3.5 from Metalic Details: https://www.scalemates.com/ru/kits/metallic-details-mdr4838-k-36d-35--1220708 but I am not sure of its accuracy and do not know the required amount of rework.
