    MiG-31 BM Cockpit

    I'm not Manuel, but I thought I would chime in on this as I had the exact same concern over the apparent small quantity of paint in an AKAN bottle. What I have found is that the coverage properties of the paint are amazing. The pigment density is very high. I covered the whole bottom of the Su-33 I am working on with AKAN's Su-33 Pale Blue (I don't have the actual number handy) with less than half the bottle. I thinned it using Mr Color Leveling Thinner to the recommended amount (10-15%). Still plenty enough in the bottle to complete the camo scheme on the top of the aircraft. And I was so worried about the amount of paint that I bought three bottles of the stuff. Duh . It may seem a small amount of paint, but it goes a long way. Kind of like those one coat coverage house paints they advertise on TV. Manuel, hope you don't mind that I budded in.

    Su-27 Landing Gear Color

    After working on my Mitsubishi F-2A, noticed that the Mr Color Radome Color from their camouflage color set for the F-2A, C326 I think, is a very close match to the Su-27 family landing gear color. Currently using it on my Su-33. I'm sure that there are many close matches that would suffice, as Berkut implies.

    Here's the inside of the KA-models F-14A burner can. Here's the inside of the real thing. Look's pretty close to me.

    Popped over to Hobbyworld and ordered paints for the blue-green scheme. Now I don't have to make up my mind till the last minute. I like having options

    Ahhh, I had thought the dark grey the current camo. Seems I was in error. Thanks Andrey. I still like the "Eggplant" scheme, but now I don't know. Darn, decisions, decisions (first world problems ).

    KA Models aftermarket parts

    Thanks Jeffrey, that's a lot of good information about casting and printing. Like I said, I'm no expert. One thing I do know is that the technology is only going to get better. If KA models can print parts with this level of detail, and meet demand, and make money doing it, it can only spur others to experiment with the technology. The increased demand will encourage designers of the 3D printing technology to improve their product. I think we are seeing the tip of the iceberg here.

    You mean the one with the large emblem on the left side. It does look very cool. I can see your reason now.

    I got my seat and the quality of detail is as good as or better than Aires. Very nice.
