  1. Hello there from the far cone of the Earth!. Thanks a lot for your kind help regarding the Modelsvit YaK-9DD kit. I only could find that boxing, but the decals are very interesting. I found some aftermarket ones for the more colorful T, K and M. So, I was planning to change decals. Have you got the piece numbers I would need for the T or M?. or must I use the ones not for use on the DD?.

    Thanks again for your help.

    If you need info about latinoamerican, and argentine aircraft in specific, give me a call.

    Best regards,


  2. Hello Juan ! Yes, It's possible - just remove (fill) the panel lines of 4 fuel tanks (outboard and leading edge) access doors on the lower wing surface, and remove relative overwing fuel fill ports. The Modelsvit DD kit contains gun parts and spinner for T, spinner and engine exhausts for early M. Canopy/cockpit are located on the same position on DD, M and T, not on D, moreover DD, T and M fuselages were unitized on the real aircrafts. Brgds, Ivan.
  3. Split scimitar winglet for NG, and AT (advanced technology) winglet for MAX.

  5. Actually, if you would like to build great and correct An-2 model buy this one: https://www.modelimex.com/1-48-antonov-an-2-6-decal-versions and discard Hobbyboss :-)
  6. Equipage rubber wheels 1/48 An-2/An-3: If you can't find it, An-2 wheels are completely the same as Il-2 Shturmovik wheels, you just need to add two wheel caps on the outer side of the wheel. Equipage makes Il-2 wheels also, and someone else makes resin Il-2 wheels (Brassin or Aires). Sorry for my English...
  7. Hi, Erik ! Su-27 and MiG-29 have the same seats - K-36DM series 2, except any numbers of early MiG-29 they were equipped K-36DM (visual difference DM and DM series 2 - headrests, DM has more bigger headrest).
  8. Greetings ! Main visible difference is an engine exhaust: Su-27 has AL-31F engine, J-11B - FWS-10, but HB kit contains correct nozzles on the sprues; another one good visible diff: antennas package on the top of the r/h vertical stabilizer, but I think that is not a big problem for scratch, and two small antennas on the tail cone - you should just remove it for convert to Su-27, also Su-27 has no conductor straps on the radome surface. Cockpit: difference instrument panel and HUD, correct instrument panel contains on the sprues, Su-27 HUD I'll take from the Dream model PE set. Armament: wing
  9. Oops... Something wrong with upper picture :blink:/>
  10. Greeting ! This is the sealant, russian name ВИТЭФ (VITEF), technical description of this sealant say that the color of sealant with correctly components mixed should be "light pink" or "beige". For my GWH MiG-29 I used the mix of the desert pink and light gray (see attached pictures). Sorry for my English :-)
