Thanks, I’ve an ongoing project of 3D modelling & printing British interceptor designs that got canned in the infamous defence White Paper so will probably do one or two of those for this (as long as doing some of the work digitally is ok?)

Your 3D modelling and printing projects are most welcome. Personally I'm of the opinion this represents a growing future for model making so have no problems seeing it happen in this GB :thumbsup:

Thanks Mrs. Santa, no actually my dear Mrs. V-P, I'm ready for both the Interceptor GB and the Bf 109 STGB:s :yahoo:. Darn, that Aces GB would've been good to have too!

P.S.  I'm not convinced that those Finnish insignia are wholly accurate...  :fool:

I have a couple of Airfix Lightnings in the stash so I’d like to join the fun with at least one of them.

Spectrum was a global organisation, and at least one Angel Interceptor seemed to break up every few episodes,  so I cannot rule out the possibility that they were made by either Lancia or Moskovich :)

Do you really think that it was produced at the

AZLK (Likhachev Automobile Plant) in Moscow, where did Moskvich

do it?  I think that for the purpose of conspiracy they did it at the ZAZ (Zaporizhzhya Automobile Plant) where they did Zaporozhets

Mine arrived about twenty minutes ago!  :yahoo:  However, unlike Wez I don't have the self-discipline needed to leave it in The Stash until the GB starts.  :fraidnot:  I'll probably have to do a test build on it...  y'know, to get my hand in...   and then get another for the GB.

In the kit you get 25, 46 and 64 Sqns but courtesy of Modeldecal I also have options for 29, 72, 152, 153 and 264 Sqns too!

Self discipline my left buttock!  It's the imposed discipline of having a degree to finish, I really don't want to have to pay my sponsorship fees back to my employer!

 

Naturally, I'll follow your build, I'll be interested in seeing how people tackle the widening of the forward wing root for the cut out on the upper wing.

Alas you'll likely have to wait 'til Enzo has finished and does a mass-upload to catch-up with his progress going down that route :lol:

this look poor, but in  intake deep You almost don't see this turbofan!😉😁

B.w. about intake, hand made wooden file on up photo  for him:

Nobody wants to spin the roulette and guess the prize interceptor?  Everyone guess the new Airfix in the topic?  

😉😁😁

O.K.next  clue!

This is not an original part from model! 🤗 The original detail was lost 😥 in the old army way, the name of which I will not give, because it has obscene meaning in Russian, in the English model language they usually speak of a carpet monster who eats all the details that have fallen down, but I threw out the carpet!

But I think my scratchbuilding part close to original then manufacturing part.

 

So, gentleman, Who will guess this interceptor?

 

 Prize ticket to Siberia to clean there Siberian snow!😁😁

In ticket to Siberia  including many free snow, 

comfortable rooms in Siberia

 and also the opportunity to participate in local theatrical performances:

😁😁

No????

 

Nobody wants to play this quiz?  I am upset 😂and go away to do the model further!

hmmm the shape of the intake is what gets me......not your usual "flying drainpipe" style fuselage I bet.

 

1, So the intake trunks lead me to think the intake are either side of the fuselage and not a centre one.

 

2, Single engine

 

3, Odd shape stick so 60's or earlier????

 

a Myasishchev M-17 Stratofera would be great to see but the intake and dates wouldn't work, plus I think it was meant to be a purely Recon bird.

 

That intake shape is throwing me otherwise I would have said an early Lavochkin as well.

 

Guess no vacation to Siberia for me....would have been nice to leave the smoke and +40C weather!!!

@trickyrich good try!

There is a certain logic in Your reasoning, but I'm afraid being carried away by the details You made a mistake with the main line!

......Myasishchev M-17 Stratofera...Lavochkin....

what will happen if I say that this poor part simulating a turbofan:

Myasishchev M-17 Stratosfera it's not Recon bird, it's specific interceptor for balloons! 😉😋🤗

By local standards, there is an abnormal spring weather here, something around +5С, however, I remember when it rained on New Year's...
