  1. In my case, I decided on the decal options, but I was not sure where to find these decal options! B.R. Serge
  2. In this topic was technical manual: http://scalemodels.ru/modules/forum/viewtopic.php?t=29162&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0 but link for download broken.... Also BM: B.R. Serge
  3. Kazakhstan specnaz: with screaming "For Borat!" are already coming to visit You! B.R. Serge
  4. In Wikipedia (I do not remember, only in Russian, or in both Russian and English versions) there was no data on the participation of RAF Venom F.B. 4 in the Suez crisis (!), and they appeared only after it became clear during a discussion on the Russian forum scalemodels.ru (one "expert" referred to the fact that since there is no data on Wikipedia about Venom's participation, it was not there!) what the forum user has made the appropriate additions to Wikipedia! Therefore, Wikipedia is not always a complete source. Although, in fact, my posting was, only to put Your topic und
  5. A link to this news is possible? Of course, I have a 72nd scale*, but some of my friends collect 48th scale and they will be very happy with this news! B.R. Serge ____________ * - the only true and correct scale !!!! All other scales were invented by Satan and sent down to our world straight from hell!
  6. Not all! Something missed: https://xmold-modeling.com/products-information/ B.R. Serge
  7. Your Honor, clarification, "serial worlds largest and heaviest interceptor", because, I don't know how about heaviest, but largest in the length was YF-12A! B.R. Serge
  8. Officially You right, the official explanation was rather idiotic - you need to destroy the fleet of single-engine aircraft, because twin-engine aircraft are more reliable ... but the truth is at the Le Bourget air show MiG-29 Kvochur officially (unofficially named other reasons) fell from the hit of ONE bird in ONE engine and the fact that the MiG-29 had two engines, Kvochur did not help. But under this pretext, the fighter-bomber aircraft (all this MiG-27/Su-17) in the Air Force as a class was completely destroyed. This led to a decrease or complete cessation of state funding for defense or
  9. As for my most interesting nose art F-106 it's Dick Stultz Nose Art - "TAZ", "Lurch IV" "Big Red1" and "Bones Crusher": (resource photo: https://www.f-106deltadart.com/piwigo/picture.php?/2616 ) unfortunately, as far as I know, there are such options either in very old Hasegawa decals in models or Microscale decals, unfortunately both decals are rare. Now do You understand why I think the Meng version of the decal in the model is not very good? B.R. Serge
  10. Unbuilt in box, this model looks amazing, it's my personal impressive. I have exactly the same but with two aftermarket Resin Sets Meng and Master Pito. But I personally do not like those decal options that are inside Meng, will You make them, or will You use an aftermarket decal? In my personal opinion, in the Meng model, the decal in the box is very weak when compared to the aftermarket decal: http://www.fundekals.com/deltaDart_f106_Stencils_72.html For the F-106, the manufacturer's original technical manual for the repair and maintenance of the intercept
  11. ??? Who is the model manufacturer, what is the scale ??? B.R. Serge
  12. XF-103 !!! I have only vacu in 72nd scale in my collection. As for my, on this time, best build Collect-Aire 1/48 XF-103 Thunderceptor, on the Internet is here: https://www.dishmodels.ru/gshow.htm?p=12140 The best and most complete collection of information on this aircraft is here: https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/threads/republic-xf-103-interceptor.4304/ B.R.

  13. And yes and no .... oddly enough, the Su-34 is worse than the Su-24 in its ability to make a long flight near the ground in the terrain bend mode. In principle, even the chief pilot of the MiG V. Menitsky mentioned that the Sukhoi Design Bureau considered not McDonnell Douglas or Lockheed but the Mikoyan Design Bureau as their main competitor, and made every effort to destroy it .... in principle, they actually succeeded.

  14. Pete, I wrote about this in the Chat of this GB. In fact J-8-I and Ye-152A similar enough as the planes of one design school can be similar ... more precisely, the planes of a student (China) and a teacher (USSR). There is even a conspiracy theory that the USSR transferred some E-152A drawings to China. In fact, with a common idea and identical engines, the fuselage of the E-152A and J-8-I are different in design. In J-8-I the expansion for two engines begins in the cockpit area, and section J-8-I - oval, but for the E-152A, first there is a circle in cross section and the expansion for
  15. I wrote: because it made no sense for me to buy Revell Lightning for $ 15 or $ 20, while the plastic Lightning made a factory in my city and they were even sold in newsstands for $ 1 or $ 2., that's why I never held a box of Revell from Lightning in my hands, despite the fact that a stream of Revell poured into our city from 1994-1995, among which I fished for my collection F-101B, Ta-183, FJ-4B, Go.229, Me.1101B, Me.1099B...but of course Revell repack Lightning, Sea Vixen, Shackleton, Skya, Canberra e.t.c in my city they weren't taking it ... it just didn't make sense! But

  17. The relationship between FROG and Hasegawa is not simple: "By this time, the owner of the trademark was the firm “Rovex Industries Ltd.”, which was already actively working on the successor model, which was supposed to be the latest modification of the BAC “Lightning” F.Mk.6. The development of the mold began in 1967, and in the FROG registry the model received the F201 index with preliminary inclusion in the Red Series. It is possible that over time we would have seen a completely different “Lightning” under the FROG brand, but it was then that “Rovex” entered into a period of close co
  18. http://walkarounds.scalemodels.ru/v/walkarounds/avia/after_1950/J-8B/ http://www.primeportal.net/hangar/howard_mason/j-8b_finback_b/ Now You know more! Also, as I remember @Flankerman taking photo of J-8B during his travels on China. B.w. but it's most probably no service camouflage, it's probably museum art. B.R. Serge
  19. Yeah....MiG-27, especially in modification MiG-27K has always been the object of envy and lust in the Sukhoi Design Bureau! They reached the level of the MiG-27K in the fixed wing Su-17M5 .... which was made only on paper.... B.R. Serge
  20. On this topic was many discussion about "Su-57 really true stealth or not really stealth?" In reality Su-57 have unique high-tech stealth mode, it is enough for the pilot to press the top secret button in the cockpit: "View like as self-propelled gun!" and it: flies across the sky! How do you's like that, my dear F-35 and F-22 fans, can they stealth in this mode? If seriously, news from 31.10.2020 "The second production aircraft of the fifth generation Su-57 made a successful test flight in the skies over Komsomolsk-on-Amur. Air Force m
  21. Alexei stopэ, as I read here: http://zabmodels.mybb.ru/viewtopic.php?id=464&p=2#p8063 Monday, February 26, 2018 10:07:29 Bertych Administrator Posts: 2672 " The day before yesterday I talked to Valera Maksimenko" in there was an opportunity to talk with Valery Maksimenko, as I understand he is a technician of the MiG-23MLD, he must remember when used R-73 .....or do You want to say ..... ???? Sorry if the my question is stupid and tactless ... Considering how many have been repainted, it will be a miracle if you's restore all of its color opt
  22. Pete it's unrealistic, Trumpeter wrong: http://xn--80aafy5bs.xn--p1ai/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/16.Shema-variantov-podveski-vooruzhenij-Su-15TM.-589x600.png ...but who knows, Su-15 have made surprises: http://xn--80aafy5bs.xn--p1ai/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/2.Su-15TM-s-podveshennymi-UPK-23-250-i-blokami-UB-32.jpg http://nacekomie.ru/forum/files/201204/15021_78fcdde68ba63f7b639c81c79a2bf789.jpg B.R.

  23. There is an opinion that the Su-21 should be called an attack aircraft Sukhoi T-58Sh: based on the Su-15 .... but this is not certain! Some modelers even made a model of such a Su-21: http://alternathistory.com/alternativnye-shturmoviki-su-21-sssr/ B.R. Serge
  24. For best illustrations my previous posting. This is what I had to face when assembling Academy nose: Green is the "green squadron putty". At the junction of the parts, the plastic is relatively thin, given that the joint was not ideal, I had to work a lot with sandpaper, this led to the fact that, due to the aggressive effect of the glue, in some places the plastic became soft and fell inside, which required putty and long drying. Therefore, do not repeat my mistakes, be very careful in assembling these parts. The next problem is the bottom of the fuselage. I
  25. Pete, I think shouldn't hide in private messages what can be used by other modelers, especially since Kanga company that released this decal has long ceased to exist. Translate version. 1. Su-9B Air Defense USSR, airfield Nebit-Dag, Turkhmenia, 1971 year, aircraft used for flight young pilot after flying school; 2. Su-9B Air Defense USSR, underground airfield "Mirnyi-14" near cosmodrome "Severnyi"; 3. Su-9B used in intercept spy plane U-2 Garry Powers 1 May 1960 year; 4. Su-9B used as weather scout at one of the airfields of Belarus in the late 70s.
