  1. Inspiration is okay, but it is complete new mould. modelldoc
  2. This is the only one kit in 1:72, from the picture above: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/mir-mig-21--157630 modelldoc
  3. The MiG-21 SMT (also E-7SMT, product 50, product 50bis) was a special attacker version with more fuel options but with the bigger fuel tank on the back the flight conditions are badly. Only 281 MiG-21 SMT are produced. MiG-21SMT (1971; Izdeliye 50; NATO "Fishbed-K") S = Sapfir (referring to the Sapfir-21/RP-22 radar), M = Modernizirovannyy ("Modernised"), T = Toplivo ("Fuel," referring to increased fuel capacity) A development of the MiG-21SM with increased fuel capacity. This variant is easily spotted thanks to its larger spine, which made it unpopular with pilots as it was much harder to fly. There is a model kit from the former Minsk toy factory: https://www.flickr.com/photos/21603181@N08/12990362204/in/photolist-rWMvSX-kMV179-9kKabQ-T5Ls9X-9rvpjv-9q2ryK modelldoc
  4. I have never heard this color name. In the Net I found a lot, but it is a very yellowish yellow for me. https://www.google.com/search?q=Saturn+Yellow&sxsrf=ALiCzsYNO60_KgVIJa_9IwcVr2xQiiVvrA:1663665202825&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjM2sHrg6P6AhUxSfEDHcX6AvUQ_AUoAnoECAEQBA&biw=1901&bih=920&dpr=1 My TT 20 conversion had yellow yellow: https://www.flickr.com/photos/21603181@N08/8141664268/in/photolist-2m2iXNs-2iT37wR-JooYQU-Jcnavp-H1akjQ-qxfJJ7-qhYYgY-fFBDoJ-dpsbn9-dpsa8S-dps8SL-998nhc-97qFmT modelldoc
  5. In this case I decided for that: https://www.flickr.com/photos/21603181@N08/15594849659/in/photolist-qzxh1R-pL8ge2-pL4Fug-p6Ktke-p6GGp7-pd4n6W-mea6iz-9x9RJU-9gHqQm-98ksvB modelldoc
  6. I think do you mean "A History of Chinese Aviation" from AHS of ROC, page 122. Right, the plane has the full German markings and the white sun is at the end of the wing. For the tail on the right it is black-white-red striped, here is the order for that: "...Before that, however, there had been a change in the external appearance of the German aircraft. In an "Aviation Flag Ordinance" published in the Reichsgesetzblatt of 8 July 1933, the Reich flag in the form of black-white-red horizontal stripes, which had hitherto been to be carried on both sides of the tailplane, was now to be replaced on the port side by the new swastika flag...." modelldoc
  7. Picture of D-ABAN in Germany: https://www.asisbiz.com/il2/Ju-52/Civil/pages/Lufthansa-Junkers-Ju-52-3m-airliner-D-ABAN-later-to-Eurasia-China-1934-01.html BTW, can'T open the file from cwlam. modelldoc
  8. The Ju-52 c/n 4044, D-3382, later D-ABAN was send to China on 29th of August 1934 and arrived Shanghai on 6th of September 1934. Than it tours to Canton, Nanking, Peking, Tientsin and Tsingtao and finally sold to the Goverment in April 1935 for use by Chiang Kai-shek as a VIP transport. I think, the plane was in standard German colors during this time. modelldoc
  9. Here is my interpretation from these picture: https://www.flickr.com/photos/21603181@N08/5323593637/in/photolist-RvSkzc-JJYeLm-u2CD9o-qfnDYZ-pY7gLX-onTCFL-gfn7iQ-anGHfR-97qNVc modelldoc
  10. The Revell rebox this kit too, so you have a Dutch option. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/revell-04628-p2-v-7-neptune--133983 modelldoc
  11. In Germany they say "old wine in new hoses"., that means: Old wine in new bottles Different but true for these offers. modelldoc
  12. Do you know, that this kit is originally from FROG? Here is my adaption to a RB-69: https://www.flickr.com/photos/21603181@N08/16462430061/in/photolist-r5JfV4 modelldoc
  13. The Revell FAA Corsair is from the 1846 Squadron: https://www.flickr.com/photos/21603181@N08/49604139347/in/dateposted/ modelldoc Thanks iang, no it's correct.
  14. In former times Airfix had the Grand Slam version: https://www.flickr.com/photos/21603181@N08/16238651755/in/photolist-V6njJG-scEYwU-ri9JnR-r5SAzH-qJXkqp-qJT3EW-qsoPAj-qso5c3-gDBxAi-98cKjF modelldoc
