  2. Bronco Models has just released a new tool 1/48th MiG-15bis "Fagot-B" - PLAAF Korean War - kit - ref. FB4014 This first limited boxing - edited for The Military Museum of The Chinese People’s Revolution at Bejing in the framework of an exhibition commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Chinese People’s Volunteers’ mission in Korea - is reported to be followed soon by mass market boxing. Source: http://www.moxingfans.com/new/news/2020/1026/8347.html And the true object as on display in the Museum. A detail of importance it's not a MiG-15bis (as proposed by the kit) but rather a early MiG-15 with RD-45 engine, small tail, small airbrakes . . .

  4. Good evening, among the "not for use" parts in Eduards 1/72nd Fagot are a pair of bombs. I cannot find similar ones in my copy of Yefim Gordons "Soviet / Russian Aircraft Weapons Since WW2" - does anyone know what type of bomb these represent, and which aircraft / air forces used these? Thanks in advance!, Andre
  5. Hello to all of you good people.I present you my eduard MiG-15uti of the Algerian air force.I built it pretty much OOB.The kit is awesome.The fit is really good.I just hand made the FOD cover in order to cover all the led I had to put in the nose.The painting was done with Mr color paints.I also made a video of the build process so who is interested can see it on the following link https://youtu.be/yjDsYQK2bjw
  6. Good evening all, while building a project I like to have a second simpler project of let's say 'lesser importance' running in parallel. Like a B-side to the main project. So while I was building the Arado 196 for the Heller group build I confess I was having an affair with Hasegawa 🤭 Now that the A-side project is over and done, what was hiding in the shadows comes under the spotlight: The idea is as I understand this, to build a kit without having to worry about accuracy, details, sources, aftermarket products, expensive material etc. I failed. Stay tuned for a high cholesterol group build of sorts. 😉 Thanks for looking!
  7. Here are my latest completed models, Firstly the Su-17 ("P") 1949 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sukhoi_Su-17_(1949). This is the A&A Models kit finished with Vallejo Metal Color paints namely aluminium and duraluminium. The pitot on the wing was replaced with aluminium tubing. The undercarriage is very delicate and fragile because of the way it is fixed together. This has been sitting on my Shelf of Doom, so glad l have completed it. Next is the Eduard MiG-15, the Weekend edition. Not much to say about the Eduard kit other than it is the best MiG-15 in 1/72. This one helped me to complete the one above. Finished with Vallejo Metal Color and added a FOD guard on the nose intake to cover the extra weight needed to keep it from being a tail sitter. Thanks for looking. Regards Robert

  11. MiG-15bis - ProfiPACK Edition (7059) 1:72 Eduard The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15 was the most famous fighter aircraft to emerge from behind the Iron Curtain during the early years of the Cold War. Although a Soviet design, the MiG-15 made use of captured German research on the aerodynamic properties of swept wings, combined with a reverse engineered Rolls Royce Nene turbojet engine. The resulting aircraft was a triumph, easily outclassing the more conventional jet fighters then in service. In order to ensure it could perform adequately as a bomber destroyer, it packed a formidable punch, with two 23mm cannons and a single 37mm cannon mounted in a pack under the nose. The MiG-15 was the original production version, which lacked the range of small improvements made to the follow-on bis variant. The MiG-15 made its combat debut during the Korean War, where it proved a nasty shock for UN forces. It wasn't until the North American F-86 Sabre became available that American forces had anything able to hold its own against the new Soviet fighter. The MiG-15 went on to become one of the most widely produced jet fighters in history and saw service with air forces around the world. The Kit Inside the sturdy box are three sprues of grey plastic and a clear sprue. There is also a small PE Sheet and masks (not shown) The overall impression is of a really premium quality package. The quality of the mouldings is up to the usual Eduard standard. Details are clean and crisp and there are no flaws anywhere. As with other recent kits from Eduard, there is plenty of fine detail, with parts such as the cockpit comparable to high-end resin items. The surface detail on the outside of the airframe is comprised of recessed panel lines with delicately engraved rivet and fastener details. The kit does not have a massive amount of parts but is still fairly detailed and now doubt the best MiG-15 kit available in 1.72. The first step in construction is the cockpit area. A part seat is put together and then inserted into the cockpit. Like the real aircraft the cockpit sides form the inside of the intake as well. Front and rear bulkheads are added to the floor and sides to complete the cockpit. A separate control column is added. PE is provided for the side panels, and the seat belts. The front wheel well is made up from two parts and attached to the front cockpit. The next step is to make up the jet pipe/exhaust. This is two parts with a further part making the exhaust part of the engine. Once this and the cockpit are completed they can be added to the fuselage halves along with the rudder parts. The fuselage can then be completed. The next step to then tackle is to make up the wings. These are of conventional construction split top/bottom. Holes must be made for the drop tanks. Once these wings are complete they can be attached to the completed fuselage along with the tail planes. Final construction steps are to add the gun pack under the front fuselage, the nose intake ring and some external antennas. The landing gear can be made up, the front is a one part fixing where as the mains are four part affairs with separate hubs. Once the gear doors are attached the canopy can be added along with the drop tanks. Canopy A largish clear sprue is provided as seems to be Eduard's want. This seems to be a good idea as I have never had loose canopies rattling round their boxes, or any damage to clear parts. They are well moulded and thin for the scale. They look clear and should provide the modeller with no problems. Decals As this is the Profipack boxing 5 decal options are provided. The decals are printed in house and look to be sharp, in register and fault free. The five options are; 518th IAP, North Korea May 1953 (Flown by Maj Mikhail Ivanovich Mikhin 15 SP, Czechoslovak Air orce, Cotbus Airfield East Germany 1957 1st Sqn, 101st Recon Regiment, Szolnok, Hungary 1972 No 20 Sqn, Egypt late 1950s/early 1960s ex 64 IAK, USSR mid 1950s. Aircraft was maked as North Korean for service in the war there, and these markings still visible. Conclusion This kit is both accurate and well engineered, putting other 1:72 kits of the type in the shade. The level of detail Eduard have packed in is superb, as is the treatment of surface details. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  13. This will be my effort for the Group Build: It's an attractive scheme for the early MiG-15, representing an aircraft that flew with the Forţele Aeriene ale Republicii Populare Română, or Romanian Air Force. As you can probably make out from the text in the picture, the blue arrow was painted on the aircraft for a film. The kit and decals come from this boxing from Eduard: I've had it for quite some time now so I'd do well to get on with it. The box is comprehensively packed with a Mig-15, 2 x MiG-15bis and a two-seater MiG-15UTI: I'll sort out what sprues/etched parts etc. I need nearer the start date. Since I bought the kit I have also accumulated a little aftermarket which I shall use for this build: These from Eduard - I believe the 'solid-hub' wheels are the early type and the 'spoked-hub' wheels the later type, so obvs I will be using the early ones. I also have this: Presumably I bought that on the assumption that I was too lazy or clumsy to drill out the kit gun barrels myself, which I am not*, but what's done is done. Anyway, that's me - back next week Cheers, Stew * Actually I might be
  14. Ok...as promised, a bit of Eduard to straighten me out after the weirdness that was the last Mig I built...oy! Since Stew is building the Romanian Film Star I figured I'd start in on the Hungarian Mig-15bis from the 25th Fighter Div., 35th Fighter Reg., Taszar Air Base Hungary, 1954-55. I swear I saw that someone is building another Eduard Mig...East German? Or am I confusing it with Exdraken's Viennese Mig? Here's a page from the Eduard booklet...I'll sort out the sprue later...That is actually the hardest part of the Big Eduard Box O'Migs... Like the Spitfires, they almost build themselves. --John
  15. Okey-dokey...I have had these Blue Rider decals in the files for I cannot remember how long and why, I do not know, because back then building a jet was not on the radar, but I am happy I have them. In terms of when and where...well, we are dealing with Albania under the Hoxha rule, a time where no one knew what the heck was going on inside the borders; a place that had machine-gun pillboxes every 150m on the borders with the guns pointing in! All I know is that these roundels were used post-war and up to 1960. And they used the MIg-15. This would have also been before Hoxha aligned with the Chinese, so it is a Soviet Mig and Albania was still a part of the Warsaw Pact. Support would fizzle out 1961 and formally end in 1968...After that it became a satellite of China...in the middle of Europe! Anyway... I am aware of the rivet issue, having followed a recent build online. I apologize...I cannot remember whose it was. A basic kit but there is some detail and some easily augmented parts. Quite a plain plane...roundels on the upper and lower wing surfaces only. Red 14... --John
  16. After my CF-104 and F-84G, I'd planned to switch gears and do a pair of F/A-18s. But, in doing those builds I learned a couple new things about doing NMF, and I generated some new ideas, so I'm going to do another NMF aircraft: a Polish MiG-15. My planned F-18 build is going to be a little grueling because I'm going to re-scribe one of the kits. So I figured I'd try to do a kit that would be a "quick victory" -- after all it only has 40 parts. I'll get into the details first, and leave the personal, human-interest story for last . The kit I'm going to build is a Dragon MiG-15 that I purchased in a buying spree in 1998. The decals may be just a touch yellow, but it's hardly noticeable. The kit is nicely detailed with engraved panel lines, landing gear bay details, and reasonable cockpit details with molded instruments. So this leads to my first problem: the kit is a little too detailed because it has every... single... rivet. So, I'll throw this out for opinions: Should I fill the rivets in? I've done a lot of research on MiG-15s the last few days and the rivets are not visible on the bare metal planes until you are within about 10 feet. So, it seems to me that all of these rivets are un-necessary and unrealistic detail. I think I should be able to fill them in using super glue and a glue louper, and still keep the panel lines (and some rivets that I notice are always visible, even at a distance). When I bought this kit, there was no scalemates (that I was aware of anyway), so I generally guessed which ones might be good quality. Doing some dry-fitting tonight, I think this is a reasonably good quality kit. The fit seems very good on the fuselage. Dry fitting the wings showed that there might be a little problem there, as the slot in the fuselage is bigger than the tab on the wing. Shouldn't pose much of a problem, but it is a little annoying to have that much slop in the fit. So, here's the history behind this build (personal, human-interest story ). In late September 1989, I went to the nearest hobby store (185 miles away) and bought a Heller F-86 and a Humbrol MiG-15. I built both over the course of a couple of weekends in early October 1989. The MiG-15 kit had 2 options: Soviet and Polish. Since I had a row of "Red Stars" on my model shelf, I figured it would be neat to do something different and I chose Polish. I must say, that Humbrol MiG-15 kit is tied for first place for the "worst-kits-I-have-ever-built" award (the other being a Starfix Spitfire Mk. XIV). It had no detail whatsoever (a bent piece of plastic for a seat was the entire cockpit), horribly clumsy raised panel lines, and poor engineering galore (the nose cap was a larger diameter than the aircraft body). After college when I moved out of my parent's house, my models went with me, but the MiG-15 went in the trash. I bought the kit I'm going to start as its replacement, which is why I am choosing the Polish version. Next time, I'll outline my approach for the paint. Thanks for looking...

  19. Hello, 1/72 MIG 15 UTI slightly altered to represent a Czech version (Aero CS-102): kit by Eduard with a good deal of aftermarket goodies (Brassin cockpit and speed brakes, photoetched flap and external details), very few scratch details (gear indicators and aerial), Vallejo paints. Decals from various sources, trying to represent a Romanian Air Force plane from early 1990, just months from type retirement. Thanks for your comments.

  21. Hi Guys, I have added an historic MiG-15 of a Chinese fighter ace to my walkaround site. It is on display at the Military Museum of the Chinese People's Revolution. Take a look here: http://warbirdswalkaround.wixsite.com/warbirds/single-post/2017/10/10/Meritorious-Jet-Fighter-Wang-Hais-MiG-15 Mods: This is not an advert and I receive no funding for clicks on my site; it's purely for the enjoyment of others. No, really. Not a sausage, nada...
  22. The summer edition called MIG-15 is over. Models for rest and relaxation, everyone well-known. In my work, I only had a problem with Techmod (TRASH) decals. Even though they are subsequently coated with a decal film, they are decomposing themselves in water and do not suffer any kind of decoys. So the number 40 on the models was as good as it is. Less silvering is seen on the shelves than in the paintings, but what is there. The colors are Humbrol 93 and 105 above, Model Model 2123 is below. I do not blunt anymore, here's the picture. Regards.
  23. Platz is to rebox the Eduard's 1/72nd MiG-15UTI "Midget" kit - ref. AE-4 A test build was on display at the All Japan Model & Hobby Show 2016 Source: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1111514358943111&set=a.148871311874092.33321.100002536719681&type=3&theater V.P.
  24. My take on the Airfix 2009 tool sorta-MiG-15; I say that because when you put it next to the Eduard kit the differences are very apparent. It looks nice enough in isolation though. I added an Eduard photoetch cockpit set, but you can't really see much of it in the photos. This kit was a would be victim of the hardwood floor monster (closely related to the carpet monster), who conveniently rematerialised the canopy, which I had dropped earlier, directly underneath my foot. Fortunately, I have a second copy of the kit and was able, after much swearing, to smash-form a suitable replacement. Eduard masks greatly simplified the task of masking the wheels and canopy. Update: The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that I installed the inner gear doors on the wrong sides. Well-spotted, and now, after more cursing, they are fixed!

  25. My very first jet. Yes...after almost 40 years of this hobby I have finally built something without a propeller. I was astounded at the kit, actually. Talk about tight fitting pieces! Amazing. They must be molding their plastic with lasers. I really enjoyed this build and, as a big fan of Cold War history, this is a must for me and any other aircraft hobbyist. In fact, I have become so enamoured with the early Migs that I have ordered the Quattro box from Eduard and also some Mig-17 kits from AZ Models. Something about all those uses in the Middle East and Africa... I used plenty of sources for modelling and weathering from the interweb, some of which I think was from this site. Thanks folks! --JDCM
