Hallo Today I want to make some remarks on the famous Eurofighter. This aircraft is the famous newspaper a/c, since headlines are a constant accompany in this a/c life. It is comparable with the public life of the F-104 Starfighter. Anyway, the history of its design dates back to the 1980s to Israel. The Lavi was born. I was eyewitness of her maiden flight. This outstanding fighter. The US prohibited any further development or production to Israel. The US acted and acts the same way as the Catholic Church in the Middle Age. To prohibit knowledge to the common people. So, the drawings and calculation were sold to China. Their derivate was the Chengdu J-10. This a/c has a very familiar shape to the Eurofighter. Here I show you my model. The photos from the Lavi I made during a visit at Hazerim. Here ends the story of the Lavi and the melting design to the EF. In between just the J-10. Only one component of the EF is superior. This is the power plant. It is very well explained in a book (just for insiders to read!). The book is from K. Bauerfeind; Steuerung und Regelung der Turbotriebwerke. This book tells you all about the shortcomings in the F-100 power plant family too. As conclusion I can formulate that each nation may have good designs and a/c. Some are more capable as others. Some pay money to silence their opponent, but they are not better, just short sighted! Note: The air intake of the J-10 is more sophisticated as the EF. The weapon load of Python 3 missile! Happy modelling
Hi, all. Until I wasn't at home, this cat: has surfed on my table where there were details J-10B for coloring. As a result I haven't got one nose wheel (detail D5) and is HUD (detail G7). Nose wheel not a problem for my, because I can make the copy from remained. Not problem to make HUD most if there is a photo or the drawing. Whether somebody can at whom have unbulit J-10B (Trumpeter 1/72, item no.:01651) to make HUD photo (a detail G7) near a ruler? Three photos the front view, the top view and a side view are necessary!!! To me three photos are necessary because at J-10B rather irregular shape is HUD: (resource photo:http://errymath.blogspot.com/2015/01/jf-17-block-iii-pictures.html?m=0#.WbwmrBmOGBY ) and just I haven't enough photos from the Internet for production of this detail. Of course I will look for these details, but if the cat hasn't eaten them, then he has dumped them from a table on a carpet. But "a big carpet monster" doesn't give fine details! Therefore it is possible they should be done most. For this purpose the photo is necessary. Please help! B.R. Serge
Hi, all! Maybe somebody saw a photo not retouched number on a fin of the front line (not a prototype) of Chengdu J-10B with Woshan WS-10A «Taihang» ? Chengdu J-10B with Lulka AL-31F at which I saw not retouched numbers on a fin, Chengdu J-10B with Woshan WS-10A «Taihang» didn't meet.... And still question of a camouflage of J-10. Instructions recommend to paint Chengdu J-10 in GS Aqueous Hobby Colour 61 tops and bottom GS Aqueous Hobby Colour 308 + white . GS Aqueous Hobby Colour 61 is gray with a yellowish shade, but on a photo of Chengdu J-10 from above is painted in gray with a bluish shade... maybe someone saw Chengdu J-10B in live can also clear what at it actually a shade of gray - yellowish or bluish? Maybe take place to be both options of a gray shade by the real airplanes? Then what pattern? B.R. Serge
This is the 1/72 Trumpeter J-10S, with the addition of DreamModel etched cockpit details and exhaust nozzle. I’m sure that it is humanly possible to make the DreamModel etched exhaust work ... but I couldn’t manage it! I just used the afterburner ring and put one part of the etched detail inside the kit nozzle for what I think is a pleasing effect; the cockpit set on the other hand worked fine. Markings are one of the kit decal options. The Trumpeter kit goes together easily and, although I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the form in every regard, I think it looks good.
