  1. I know this is a naive question but I am intrigued. How are such complex small parts designed for resin reproduction? I continue to be asstounded by the detail produced and woyld love to know how it is acheived. Thanks. Martin
  2. Hello, A question I have always had about Russian fighters is why are some of Mig and Sukhoi's designs so outwardly similar. To my eye it always looks like Sukhoi make a bigger version of whatever Mig make. Almost as if Mig made 3 series BMW's and a few months later Sukhoi bring out the 7 series. Is this intentional sharing of aerodynamic data and principles? Is this a by-product of the command economy (this is a good fighter, better make our fighter look the same or it will not get built) thing? Is it just a massive co-incidence? examples; Mig 21 & SU-22 I know the SU-22 has VG but the silhouette is similar. Mig 23 & SU-24 size is the biggest difference here. Mig 29 & SU-27 size again. On other designs such as the SU-15 Flagon & Mig 25 the solution to the same problem was very different and both succesful in their own right, so why the similarities elsewhere? The US aircraft industry has some similar designs from different designers, F-14 & F-15 both use twin tail & wide spaced engines but don't share a silhouette. The best non Soviet example is the Dassault Mystere and North American Sabre which are very similar, but the Mirage went a very different way from the Lightning. Though not admittedly the Corvair Dart. The 3 examples above have always made me wonder if the design similarities are deliberate or not, can anyone enlighten me? Thanks.
