  1. Well my Spitfires decals were settling so I was stuck for something to do so I decided I would make a start on one of the builds I would like to do for this GB. This ones just going to be a quick out the box effort on Academys 1/72 MiG-27. I know the kits got its issues, I beleive the nose is wrong for a D and the cockpit detail is almost none existant but I'm just looking for a quick build again at the moment and not get bogged down with corrections and detailing etc on this whilst I'm waiting on parts for a couple of other builds I want to get done for this and another gb so onwards. Obligatory box and sprue shot:

  4. Hi everyone! I decided to start something new on the side and get off the F-16 I am building for a while because I am getting a bit burnt out with it to be honest. I decided to start something fresher and I thought simpler.... naive I am!! So I decided to start with the Hasegawa Mig-27 Flogger D in the 1/72: This particular release is from 2003 although I am suspecting it comes from an old old kit as a quick search in Scalemates suggests. Also the combination of raised and depressed panel lines suggests. Furthermore there some significant flash in the kit pointing to a worn out mold. So these are the sprues out of the box: Plus a clear sprue with the 2 piece canopy, which can be mounted either close or open and a couple of clear part for signaling lights on the side of the main fuselage. Some details of a few parts: Flash: Now off we go! First things first I did the research in the following websites if you wanna have a look around (best walkarounds I could find): http://scalemodels.ru/news/4987-Walkaround-mig-27-kokpit-tekhnicheskijj-muzejj-toljatti-rossija-MiG-27-Flogger-cockpit-Tolyatti.html http://scalemodels.ru/news/3565-Walkaround-mig-27k-iz-gosudarstvennogo-muzeja-aviacii-zhuljany-kiev.html http://scalemodels.ru/news/3566-Walkaround-mig-23bm-mig-27-Flogger-D-zhuljany-kiev.html http://scalemodels.ru/news/3082-mig-27k-v-muzee-aviacionnojj-tekhniki-v-borovojj.html http://scalemodels.ru/news/1737-Walkaround-mig-27-irkutsk-MiG-27-Flogger-D-Irkutsk.html ( THIS IS MY MAIN REFERENCE) http://scalemodels.ru/news/1373-Walkaround-mig-27-saratov-MiG-27-Flogger-Saratov.html I am not sure if I am missing something but first thing to strike me was the nose. Completely wrong shape, at least for the Flogger D model, which should be as follow: (http://scalemodels.ru/modules/photo/viewcat.php?id=24979&cid=567&min=60&orderby=dateA&show=12) Photo credit True that there are differences between the mig-27 models: But all those nice targeting systems on the nose (Kaira-1 system) completely non existing on the Hasegawa kit! So I set myself to fix this offend! Original nose: A bit of standard Milliput and water to shape the Kaira-1 system main structure: Sanding and reshapping will follow to lower the profile of the structure, also painted the sockets black and cut open the frontal element of the Kaira-1 using a photo-etched mini saw: Now time for the optics! Clear sprue which has been reshaped thinner and polished: Cut the tip for the frontal element of the lens (see reference picture above): A smear of CA and it is fixed! Now the second optical element at the front: This is just a clear styrene sheet cut and glued into place # Next will be covering all elements with the armoured glass windows which will be more clear styrene sheet and nose it is ready to go! I have also been working on the frontal wheel bay which again kit version is FAAAAAAAAAAAAR from reality! I will prepare another post just focusing on that one After that comes the cockpit which in the kit is mysteriously missing! As always comments / suggestions are more than welcome! Hope you like this Cheers, Alex P.S. if you wanna check my F-16 build this is the link http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234965428-172-heller-f-16-ab-old-issue-first-model-fighter/
  5. After its MiG-27K "Flogger-J2" (http://modelsua.com/MiG-27K-Kaira-Guillemot-NATO-Flogger-J2-1-72-Artmodel-7214.html) ArtModel has just released a 1/72nd MiG-27M/D "Flogger-J" kit - ref.7216 Source: http://modelsua.com/MiG-27M-D-Flogger-J-ground-attack-aircraft-1-72-ArtModel-7216.html The image in the ModelsUA homepage is a picture from a 19.Gv.APIB MiG-27D "Flogger-J" - bort 24 yellow, c/n 61912559200 - taken in the early nineties at Lärz (Mirow) in Germany.

  6. Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-27K Flogger-J2 serial 61912507006, at Newark Air Museum, pics mine.
  7. Build 10 This will mostly be an OOB build with a little work on the wing glove to reduce the gap. Price: £2.98 eBay. I had to throw the box away when I received the kit as it was smelling moldy. But before I did, I scanned the instructions and paint guide on the back of the box. The stars are not very well defined and I'l probably replace these from the spares box.
  8. New for the Eduard Days 2013, RV Aircraft (http://www.rvresin.com/plastic_kits.html) is to release a 1/72nd MiG-23BM "Flogger-D" kit. Source: http://modelweb.modelforum.cz/2013/09/26/novinka-firmy-r-v-aircraft-na-rijen-2013/?lang=CS V.P. .
  9. Hello All, Decided to build this completely OOB, and get it done quick. I've taken a look at my "stash" and I am quite shocked by how many models I own compared to how many I have built (about 12:1 ratio!). I think this kit is almost as old as I am... 1986 the instructions say, only 3 years younger than me! Ouch... Onto the pictures... Decided to do this as an "speed" build... fat chance of that one happening. I wanted to do her on her wheels, but then remembered that the bottom rudder thing (whats it's correct name?) hinges to the side when it's on the ground. Which meant I had to cut the one you see in the picture above, to the left of the rocket pods. The cockpit shape is totally different to the fuselage, so out with the filler tomorrow. Where I am at close of play today... Am thinking of doing this as an Indian Air Force one, they look pretty cool. Gotta source/make some decals first. Thank you for looking. Kind Regards, Dazz
