  2. Very nice build. I like the seater . Congrats Bob from Belgium
  3. Hi Jim As nothing works I hope this way will come through Interior colors of Chinese and exported Chengdus is some sort of green ( some RAf interior green with a slight more blue hue) as you can see on picture. As said the seat is a HT-Y2 (the #1 is the standard SK-1) That is a modified SK-1 mostly in the headrest .Other change is the articulation of the canopy .You will find d├ętails in the attached pictures Note that in the seat the parachute is not embedded (as in Martin Backer seats) but separate .You can see it on the pictures of Myamar F-7.The IP is almost identical to the Mig F-13

  7. hello Jim, I have made a lot of research about that seat when I was building my Zimbabwe AF Chengdu F-7IIn some years ago (see http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=173381&st=0&p=1611064&hl=chengdu%20f-7iin&fromsearch=1entry1611064) The seat is a HTY-2 .That is simply a modified SK-1 as used in the early variant of MIGs ( like the F-13)adapted for the rearward opening canopy. " The most noticeable modification is in the headrest. Do you plan to build the Trumpeter 1/48.Iin that case I would recommend you the Nneomega SK-1 seat with a little modifictaion
  8. Hello to all, I have got my Kinetic Fouga Magister today but unfortunately the instructions are missing Can one of our readers who has them have a scan and send them at my e-mail adress fa062130@skynet.be Thanks in advance Bob
  9. looks good Bruce BAF Streaks are the best :-)
  10. F-7IIN , build for Zimbabwe , is a hybrid between the F-7N and the F-7P.The f-7IIN has the probe Under nose so as far as I know Zim utised only this one version , I think Aztec is wrong stating F-7NI wich is specific to Nigeria as said by Laurent The Dashboard is almost similar to the Mig 21 F-13 , black with vertical white line (antispin recovery mark) The Trump model is not suitable for Namibia as those have have the double delta wing Bob

  12. See ARC Gallery F-84f by Glidingbob FM one is based on the Heller one who has a wrong aft fuselage ( based on old Aeromodeller plans ) Monogram is the best for me but airbrakes are wrong positonned. A mistake corrected by Kinetic that unfortunately missed the oval air intake an some panel lines specific to the RF-84f and not the F. There has been quite a lot of discussions about those issues on ARC forums . KR Bob
