- ref.05801 - MiG-23BN "Flogger-H"

- ref.05802 - MiG-27 "Flogger-D" - http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234996487-148-mig-27-flogger-d-by-trumpeter-released-nose-correction-set-in-design-by-cold-war-studio/

Next variant should be the MiG-27K "Flogger-J2" (ref.05804?). To be followed.

Uh oh... anyone wants a started Kazan conversion set? And why does this always seem to happen just after I manage to get one?

So tempted to say yes but I'd wait until we see just what the Trumpeter kit looks like before moving this one on Bone.

Well even if the Trumpeter turns out to be less accurate, it'll hardly require more work to go together... 'nuff said.

very welcome!

hope they do not take too many "short cuts" ;)

these should be correct for Indian, Czechoslovakian and DDR/ GDR aircraft, no?

Not to mention Bulgarian, Egyptian, Ethiopian, and Iraqi. :yahoo:

India also produced and operated the Flogger-J or a similar version under the name 'Bahadur', so if you want an all-grey duckbill...

Myself, I always preferred green and brown:

perhaps with a touch of sand...

Indians can be build in a multitude of color schemes!

the Bahadur was a MiG-27, though, not? (simplified non movable intakes, fixed outer exhaust petals) and supposedly a different nose as well (depending on exact variant!)

Yes, a late Mig-27 with the wing glove reaching forward nearly all the way to the intakes. Don't know what avionics it had, though.

The nose profile looks weird too me. Too long and/or too deep, curved on top, too "heavy". And the BN has nozzle petals... right...

What nation is the colour scheme F? Thought it was maybe Armenian or Georgian but can't pin it down.

The base line of the movable canopy is (almost) in parallel to the fuselage datum line while the base line of the fixed forward canopy/windscreen "kinks" down to the front.

As far as I can see from the kit both base lines are in one level downwards. This will become a hard correction job - if possible at least.
