  1. well done! I really recommend to build their twin, the Yak-130 as the Zvezda kit is a dream to build (among the best kits I've ever build) and might look nice side-by-side.
  2. It's great that you've included East German 28U as well. I do have some doubts about shape of bort number, rescue markings and - definately wrong - the time. Note that the Target Towing Wing 21 (ZDS-21) was founded in 1966, in April 1971 renamed to ZDS-33 and moved to Peenemünde on November, 14th 1972. The Quality "Q"-marking was introduced in 1972 (first yellow, later blue Q). I could not find any proof for shape of number (very untypical), existance of rescue markings and "Q" - do you have any? It would be great if you share it.
  3. Real Colors of WWII Aircraft (AK Publishing) says: "The Initial finish of the first serial-produced Bf 109s that reached Spain, i.e. the 14 Bf 109As coded 6-3 through 6-16, is still a matter of numerous discussions between the researchers. This author tends to agree with Lynn Ritger, who proposed a silver (with some parts left in bare metal as can be seen on photos of 6-7) overall colouring. David Johnston cites a S/88 document from January 1938, which mentions a silberweiß (silver-white) camouflage colour, and Lt. Josef Föröz description of his Bf 109A coded 6-16's finish being silver-grey. What is certain is that some kind of coating had been applied, as some photos reveal damages to the paint layer, down to bare metal. Worth nothing is the very smooth finish of "Antons", the panel lines were apparently taped over (AF Editores Archive)" Interesting discussions with lots of pics here: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/hyperscale/early-bf-109-spanish-civil-war-t186474.html
  4. But this is neighter an interceptor nor a PD...
  5. expensive: yes rare: no https://www.lindenhillimports.com/store/c22/Komplekt_Zip_1%2F48_scale.html
  6. I had a discussion with the Head of German Airforce Museum (Gatow/Berlin), Lt.Col. Leonhard about their Il-28. They got this plane camouflaged (see Diego's post) as a target tug, flew in early 80's. Today the Gatow-Il is silver painted - and I'm not convinced that this was originally the case. Lt.Col. Leonhard mentioned that they found during restauration layers of silver colour under the camouflage. Another hint could be that the radome (on some pics) seems to be silver as well (originally green plastic). So my POV is still - delivered NMF, maybe later painted. It is known that East German AF made experiments with at least 4 silver painted MiG-21F-13 at this time. Gatow: https://www.behance.net/gallery/40894385/German-Aviation-Museum-Gatow
  7. The boxart shows a RBT, I don't know the differences to RB/RBS. https://www.airliners.net/photo/Russia-Air-Force/Mikoyan-Gurevich-MiG-25RBT/2083292/L Edit: RBS have side-looking radar, no cameras, complete different nose
  8. HAD had a fuel truck and a APA-5D starter, but it seems to be OOP. http://hadmodels.eu/?product_cat=full_kits_in_scale_en&lang=en
  9. Very nice! (what is the outer missile? R-3R?)
  10. Great job! I build this when I was a child, so the kit might be older than 35 yrs. Great memories!
  11. But it's a Yak-28 http://www.hyperscale.com/2017/reviews/kits/bobcat48001reviewjh_1.htm
  12. what a bad kit... I don't want to repeat all the things, but this is a bad kit in respect of research, engineering and buildability. Nose: CWS Cockpit: Neomega Pipes: Barracuda Eduard color P/E (missiles), P/E (FOD, some small parts) Decals: Begemot wheels: Armory Color: Akan Original: 146. Fighter Regiment (Guards) of 8. Air Army, Vasikov (Ukraine) 1986 (the plane is so cool, it creates shadows to the clouds.....)
  13. Of course not! Wheels should be available from AM (front wheels same as MiG-29), doors with bulges must be scratched, I'm afrait.
