  1. Thanks for the translation, which confirms both kits are off the mark in various areas. I just can't believe Azur stuffed this up this bad. In that frontal shot of the link I sent for the article, you can clearly see how narrow the Azur fuselage is resulting in the intake diameter looking tubular vs the Matchbox. And look how fat/ rotund the fuselage circular cross section is in your pic. This thing in real life was pretty round in the fuselage. I believe our last hope is the very hard to find old Graphy-Air resin kit from the early 90's, or we lobby outfits like Valom or Modelsvit to do a new
  2. Hi Laurent, hope yous doing well. Have a look at the side by side comparison of this gentleman's builds. He actually went through the experience of building both. Look how different the nose profile is between the two kits. Since you are a native French speaker, could you translate what specifically he says on the differences between the two. Many thanks: http://aviapassionmaquette.free.fr/Aviapassion Maquette montage MYSTERE 4A AZUR.html
  3. I been reading on the Azur/ Frrom kits glaringly narrow/ tubular nose profile inaccuracy and getting seriously turned off toward buying it. So this means wes looking at a kit bash of the old matchbox nose section from just fore of the spine and cross breeding and surgery/ kitbashing it onto the Azur Frrom kit as the last alternative in doing a correct Mystere IVA. The old Graphy Air resin kit has vanished too. Any suggestions from the 1/72 Mystere IVA experts?

  5. Always the Soviets painted the delivery aircraft to their various middle east clients.
  6. Was wondering about this ACIG profile of their Blinders operational over Chad during the 1980's. Any suggestions on the colors? Since these were delivered out of the USSR factories, you'd suspect Soviet colors?:
  7. Gabor we need to request Steve to start a 72nd scale Russian and affiliated jet aircraft forum here because there is just too much clutter here for us folks who like 72nd and primarily Post WWII Soviet/ Chinese/ Russian only.......Cut out all the riff raff. Many of us have no interest in Western subjects anyway, why not get our own forum? I'm just throwing this out here.....as a suggestion because the genre is truly massive!
  8. Good posting here Gabor. Boy I bet a few around here took your masters and recreated the Bilek Mig-19 lineup some 15 odd years ago. That PAF Scale Modeling decal sheet is a rare commodity now. Wonder if anyone would be willing to recreate it.
  9. That's some good info Gabor. Never knew about them designations or the lack of them. Any chance you still have those MB's in your basement laying around? I can certainly buy a few. That head rest you have captured very well actually. I don't think the MB PKD 10 from Pavla looks nothing like what you created very accurately. The Pavla PKD 10 is suitable for doing a PAF Nanchang Q-5/ A-5C but not the PAF F-6.
  10. This is probably the best 1/72 Mig-19/ F-6 on the market right now. Having looked at that nose intake cowl, that looks to be a new design by Kp. Even the bifurcation is included with the nose wheel well which forms when put together. Very nice indeed. I'd just use the Pavla KK-2 or a MB PKD-10 if doing a late model F-6. Here's a pic of my Bilek/ Kp cross breed:
  11. Many thanks for the clear pics Gabor.......much appreciated. I will buy this once it shows up on Hannants.
  12. The nose intake cowl lip looks thin. My suspicions are it is the smaller Bilek one reworked by Kp. I recently finished a kit bash of sorts on the Bilek kit with the fuselage section just ahead of the windshield taken from the old KP kit. The old Kp nose/ intake is far more accurate than the Bilek's tapered and small dia intake. Until I have this new kit in hand I should do a comparison, but I already have my suspicions. Now........where is that elusive Trumpeter one?
  13. Wouldn't there be a general consensus here on the notion that future ain't what it used to be?..........they've changed or tweaked its formula such that it behaves differently now. Sadly it's not the same product anymore!
  14. Gents I'm nearing completion. It looks OK, won't be winning any contests..........just glad its almost over.
