  1. Eduard has just announced 1/48th MiG-23MF "Flogger-B" & MiG-3ML "Flogger-G" in Czechoslovak service. New tool? That's the question. Frankly I hardly imagine Eduard reboxing the Trumpeter's MiG-23 kits. But who knows. If they're new tool and from the same barrel as their 1/48th MiG-21 "Fishbed" Source: https://scontent.fbru2-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/22382055_1823842124297393_5421894630712582162_o.png?oh=3b46bbc2e5e4abf84b990a1a4b7b5aba&oe=5A403F00 V.P.
  2. ClearProp Models is to release a family of (wrong scale ) 1/72nd MiG-23ML, MLA, MLD and P "Flogger" kits. First in line is a 1/72nd MiG-23MLD "Flogger-K" - ref. CP72021 Source: https://www.facebook.com/Clearpropmodels/posts/2801911910091290 Concerning the last statement I suspect a family of ground-attack MiG-23BN/MiG-27. V.P.
  3. I really do need to avoid the GB Chat area!!! Aa a result of wandering through the GB forums (..I won’t say why… ) , we’ve had STGB’s for pretty well all the popular/known modern jets (even multiple times) and one was noticeably missing, the MiG-23/27. Whilst the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-23/27 was probably not their most popular or well-loved product, they did produce over 6000 in all their variants and used by just about everyone (37 counties in total), and surprisingly is still in use (9 counties in total). So it’s probably time we had a STGB for her and show her a little love. The MiG-27 is included as she is a direct sibling much like the MiG-31 is a sibling of the earlier MiG-25. There’s a huge range of models available, with even a great number of interesting schemes. Me, I’ll be going with Eduards 1/48th “Bedna” MiG-23MF/ML model…in Czech Tiger scheme of course! 1, trickyrich - host 2, Corsairfoxfouruncle 3, Col. 4, reini 5, zebra 6, Marlin 7, Valkyrie 8, Foxbat 9, Jabba 10, Arniec 11, theplasticsurgeon 12, 13, 14, 15,

  9. To join the Cuban Mig-21s we already have in this GB I am going to add a Cuban Mig-23. I have had this KP kit in the stash for sometime and now seems like the right time to break it out. I understand this is a reboxing of the RV kits. I certainly hope so as I have ordered a Res-IM resin cockpit which I hope will fit. A few shots of the box and spures will follow shortly when Photobucket starts behaving. Dave
  10. Late entrant to this GB, so here goes. Have been on a Soviet roll lately (a I-16 and three straight Fulcrums) so what better way than with the quintessential Soviet fighter of the 1970s: the MiG-23 Flogger. Alas, the poor Flogger has been very badly neglected in The One True Scale. The Hasegawa kit is old and has raised panel lines, as does the Zvezda. The Academy pseudo-copy of the Base kit has them engraved but is rather shoddy and has major accuracy and detail issues. RS Models came out with a short-run series which was quite expensive. In comes KP with what appears to be a long-run version of the RS kit. Alas, the short-run nature of this kit is obvious the moment you open the box: despite superb panel line detailing, you can tell that it's going to have fit issues among other challenges. Still, it's the best Flogger kit on the market pending what I suspect will be an inevitable Trumpeter offering. I decided to go for a MiG-23M using the M/MF kit. I noticed that the instructions make no differentiation of the M and MF versions so I leave it to the experts to tell us what is so different (besides the avionics). The kit has decals for a Soviet version (Red 01) in camo colors with an interesting dolphin mascot but for accuracy's sake, I will be painting this in standard 70s overall gray. One of the more famous vintage pictures of the Flogger shows one in gray with Red 12 numbering so I will represent its unit brother, Red 10 by flipping around the Red 01. I find it hard to believe that there wasn't a Red 10 somewhere in East Germany ready to face off against NATO! Paints used are Akan from their MiG-23/25/31 set and look spot on. Part 1: Cockpit Not much to say here, the cockpit has detail but it's quite soft and definitely feels short-run quality. It would have benefited from some instrument panel decals to go over the raised detail as it's hard at this scale to paint accurately. The soft detailing also makes it difficult to give it a wash so I skipped it.

  16. Just finished this one, a great kit in my eyes. Trumpeter kits is normally a kind of lottery, but this one is really nice and a pleasure to build. Well, everything is of course not excellent. Decals are easy to work with, but are not entirely correct. And the instructions places many of the Polish roundels in wrong direction. I also doubt that the camouflage pattern is correct... All additions, mainly in the cockpit, on the landing gears and mail wheel bays, are scratch-built. Apart from the pitot tube, by Master. The reason to have air brakes in open position is poor fit... But apart from that, and some difficulties to get a good fit between the upper and lower half of the body behind the wings, fit is really good. I used Gunze and Tamiya acrylics. For weathering, I used dry pastels and acrylic paint. The main wheel doors lean far too much - which is pretty difficult to correct. On the other hand, there are plenty of details on the landing gears. And it is really a challenge to get everything right there! I also added the missing doors for the wings when they are in low speed position - which meant that wings are not moveable. No problem for me, this is not a toy... Now I just wait for my favourite Flogger: MiG-23BN - which I hope will be released by Trumpeter later this year!

  20. Hello, I'd like to show you my still rudimentary effort in building the Italeri (ex ESCI) MiG-23 in 1/48. It has lots of known inaccuracies, I will try to correct some of them.... for my personal motivation: Hungarian Airforce 1990ies MiG-23 MF@ airliners MiG-23 MF@ airliners Incredients: Italeri MiG-23 MF Eduard BiG ED for MIg-23 Flogger Resin nose for the MIg-29 from fox3tornado (ebay, US) that resemles the floggers nose quite well. (Quickboosts Mig-29 resin version is noticably different ) various bits and bytes form Eduard excellent Mig-21 kits (R-60, pylons, maybe canopy parts, seat) I've already started cutting and some modification: more in the next post!
  21. Here's my 1/48 Trumpeter Mig-23, lovely kit very well detailed, I assume with a better modeller you can get much more out of it. I'm aware the pics are not good but with the light I have now it's what can I get Cheers!

  24. R-60/AA-8 Aphid Missiles 1:48 Eduard Brassin (648082) The R-60 was designed by the Molnyia bureau as a medium range light weight missile, with extreme manoeuvrability, which was achieved by its very small frame and light weight, coupled with a set of forward facing strakes on the nose that improved the action of the forward steering fins at the extremes of engagement. With a practical range of 4km and above, it was the most agile Air-to-Air missile for many years, and could be fitted with either a radar or optical seeker head, the radar head receiving the K suffix. The missile can be carried singly, in pairs on a dual rail, and although designed primarily for the Mig-23, it was also used on the Mig-21, Mig-25 and 27, as well as a host of other Sukhoi and Yak aircraft. R-60s have even been used on a Mi-24 Hind, and reportedly BAE Hawks in Finnish service. Not one you see every day! The Kit The set arrives in Eduard's deep clamshell package, and inside are the parts for four missiles, four single rails and two dual rails, as well as a choice of seeker head or cover, and two small pre-painted frets of Photo-Etch (PE) metal. The missiles are attached to their mould plugs at the rear, and these should be easy to remove cleanly. A small circular PE exhaust vent is attached, and an optional set of Remove Before Flight (RBF) covers are included on the PE frets. The nose can accept either the optical heads, or be replaced by a resin RBF cover, as well as a number of triangular tags that attach to the missiles and rail. The forward strakes are PE parts that slip into slots on the nose, while the steering vanes are resin and attach with pegs and holes just aft of the strakes. A pair of additional diagrams show both the location of the missiles on the two rack types, as well as the location of the triangular RBF tags. As is standard now, colour codes are given throughout using the Gunze Sangyo codes, as well as the colour names which should give most modellers all the information they need to find a match in their chosen range. Conclusion You can't have too many missiles, and with the resurgence of Russian Cold War jets with the model companies, these super-detailed resin missiles should be easy to find a use for. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  25. What are appropriate colors to use for painting those camouflaged Cold War-era MiG-23s in straight-up Soviet service? I am not a good paint mixer (as I am an excellent paint spiller), and I really only use acrylics, so "close enough" is probably fine. I see Testors/Polly (easily available here in the land of milk and honey that is northern Illinois) have some Soviet aircraft colors (Soviet Green, Soviet Khaki, Soviet Sand), but are these what I need?
