  1. Hello all, Some time ago I pulled the ESCI "Tu-22M/Tu-26" (they didn't know which one was correct) out of storage. It is clearly a victim of its time, with glaring inaccuracies and "representative" details, but at the same time it is not a bad kit, with engraved panel lines and a good fit. So I started enlarging plans only to find out that plans can be inaccurate, too! (The one I was using had oversized wings and the air bleed doors in the wrong place...) What to do? The Aerofax book has a great overhead picture of an early -M2 parked on a runway paved with the ubiquitous PAG-14 plates. Because the size of these plates is standard at 2000x6000 mm, I now had a life-size ruler... At first, I drew a reticle matching the PAG-14 in 1/72 scale on a piece of paper, but it was too coarse to be of any use for me. I scanned the picture, tweaked for perspective, added a grid (1000x1000 in real life) and soon had something like this... The next step was making a 1/72 ruler for the model. I drew it on tape and placed it directly onto the model. Given the number of issues, I don't think it is a big deal if the "ruler" is a bit distorted around the nose... This allowed me to assess the issues with the kit and decide what I'm going to correct and how. Happy modelling, Bone
  2. Does anyone know a decal pack for Ukrainian Air Force aircraft? The ones I'm specifically needing would be for a Tu-22M2 in 1:72 and an Il-76MD in 1:144. Are there any decals in existence for these aircraft? they both exist in real life. https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9649771 https://www.airplane-pictures.net/photo/1225482/76683-ukraine-air-force-ilyushin-il-76-all-models/ https://www.planespotters.net/photo/368333/76413-ukrainian-air-force-ilyushin-il-76 Thanks in advance.
