  3. What is the best MiG-19 kit in 1/72nd scale? I know of the old Heller and KP kits, and Mastercraft do one. Are there any others? I'm specifically looking for the cannon-armed version, as opposed to the missiles-only version. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! Best Regards, Jason P.S. This is an aeroplane that cries out for a new-mould kit. Airfix? Zvezda? Anyone?
  4. Dear BMers, I picked up the old KP 1/72 MiG-19 (Nr.4) last year, and recently bought some Print Scale decals to replace the old ones in the box. The problem I have is that I don't know which mark of MiG-19 it is. Can I use the kit to represent the Chinese J6 or Pakistani F6? Or an East German one? Or the Indonesian one on the decal sheet? It is a relatively simple kit, but I'd really like to use the DDR markings for variety. Any advice welcome (except to junk the kit, I love old kits). DennisTheBear
  5. I would like to introduce to you my last finished model. MIG-19S Syrian Air Force. Here are pictures, enjoy.
  6. I picked up a Russian make MiG-19 kit from E-bay figuring that it would be a reboxing of some tired old mold. However when I checked the sprue I could not find a mold that matched the kit. So I appear to have a bit of a mystery on my hands. Does anyone know who made this 1/72 scale MiG-19? Greg in Oklahoma
  7. The is the “Mistercraft” MiG-19S, which I think is a copy of the old KP kit albeit with recessed rather than raised panel lines and moulded in a strange soapy plastic. I built this partly because I think the MiG-19 is a classic Cold War design but also because I wanted to try out some of the new(ish) Vallejo metal colours before trying them out on something less "disposable". That said, I couldn't stop myself from adding Extratech details (designed for the Bilek kits but some elements are useful), a Pavla cockpit, and the Master air data probe & gun barrels (beautiful pieces of casting). The overall shape of the Mistercraft/KP kit isn’t bad but the following are some of the adjustments I made to try to get it a little closer: · Reduce thickness of all trailing edges and wing fences · Add jet pipes and reshape the ‘pen nib’ fairing · Delete forward small intake from the fin · Add gun blast squares · Open up the nose intake and build up the internal structure · Reduce the span of the tailplanes by about 2.5 mm each side · Drill out and glaze the landing light · Fill the side airbrakes and replace · Build up the profile of the nose intake to reduce the prominence of the gun camera · Extend and re-shape the rear fillet of the wing root · Reprofile the spine at the rear of the cockpit · Reduce the chord of the fin leading edge · Lengthen the fuel tank pylons · Replace/rebuild the mainwheels with 9mm diameter substitutes (the hubs are scratchbuilt and still not perfect, but better) · Add an additional member to each main landing gear · Rebuild the nose landing gear (6mm diameter wheel) – mine includes elements from a F-8 Crusader plus Albion Alloy tubing · Plus an awful lot of fill-sand-shape repeat! The kit decals were out of register so the markings are from the spares box (Bilek MiG-19PM for the Czech national markings and KP MiG-21MF for some of the numbers). By the way, one thing to watch is that the kit has the long fin fillet, so is not suitable for the early batch Czech MiG-19s (S-105s) with serials in the 01xx and 02xx series. There is most definitely a need for a decent MiG-19/J-6 in 1/72 scale (I bear the scars of having previously fought the Bilek MiG-19PM into submission) but I was pretty pleased with how the Vallejo metallics worked out; by the way, there is more lustre and contrast between the panels than the photos bring out.
  8. This thread deals with the MiG aircraft. For the Shenyang J-6 Farmer please see our separate thread here. MiG-19PM, Pics thanks to Mike Cosello, taken at the Polish Aviation Museum, Krakow.
  9. So i have narrowed the contenders down to: -A "spotty" MiG-17F no. 2072 using the Hobby Boss kit. or -A "patchy" Shenyang J-6 no. 6065 6066 using the Trumpeter kit. BTW i'm using this decal sheet: http://www.lds.airplanephoto.net/decals/12-lds-48007/index.htm but i still need to decide which one to build..........
