  1. There are a few cool Middle Eastern schemes that have not been done before. The all-grey Libyan scheme has never been done before, saw action in 2011 arab spring fighting. Pakistan Air Force had C-130s in up to 6 different schemes over the years, here are two examples that have never been done. The Royal Saudi Air Force flew C-130s in natural metal/white colors in the early years, again a rare scheme. The Saudi ‚mid-life‘ scheme would also be cool, from back when the national markings were not toned down yet. See attached image of an aerial refueling operation in the 1980s.
  2. Hi all, I am trying to airbrush a yellow cowling on a P47, using Tamiya XF03 1:1 thinned with Mr Color leveling thinner, on top of a coat of Mr Surfacer 1500. The same combination works excellently on a bottle of Tamiya green I recently bought. Pressure was between 10-20 PSI, I have tried the lower and higher ends with no effect. But with this bottle of yellow, there are flakes or small bits of paint that do not dissolve, be it in the mixing cup or during airbrushing, resulting in a rough, splattered finish. No idea what I am doing wrong here, except for the fact
  3. Cheers, that makes it a lot clearer. I assume that the guns in the nose are always the giveaway? If so, there is a LOT of mislabeled NJ-21s online. Below should then be a Jastreb trainer, right? Even books by Serbs on this topic have this one labelled as Galeb. I can see how, say a Libyan Galeb, clearly does not have guns.
  4. Does anyone know the difference between these two? Look the same to me, but there are different kits around.
  5. Another one poped up on ebay, this one still sealed: https://www.ebay.de/itm/RARE-A-26A-B-26K-1-48-Conversion-Cutting-Edge-Modelworks-CEC48039/124561797847?hash=item1d007632d7:g:hKAAAOSwXQJgHlm4
  6. The new kitty hawk kit. From the box one can only build the Soviet Su-17M3 poweredby the Al-21 engine. The export Su-22M3, used by e.g. Peru, Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, North&South Yemen, has the R-29 engine. This leads to a tail section with slightly larger diameter, different air scoop placement and a slightly more ‚rectangular‘ fin.
  7. Su-22M3 tailpiece and fin in 1/48
  8. Looking to buy either one or both of the Libyan or Yemeni decals options from the two eduard su-22 kits in 1/48 scale. Will also buy the full kits. If anyone has those decals left over, I will gladly buy them. Kind regards
  9. But why are there MLs without it ? MF was before ML,wasent it?
  10. But if the frame is supposed to be there, why are there photos of MLs without it ? Maybe those ones were replacements ? It's really strange because even the MS has the frame, why should a ML be lacking it.
  11. Hi, I'm building trumpeters MiG-23ML right now and while searching for a camo scheme, I found some migs with a central frame accross the canopy hood and some without one.Trumpeter meanwhile only included a hood with the frame. Whats the matter with this ? Here is a 23 without it: http://www.arcair.com/awa01/601-700/awa645-MiG-23-Brown/00.shtm Libyan and syrian ones are missing it as well. Could it have something to do with export versions ? Best regards David
  12. This one https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/LH72019 Or This one http://ipms-warszawa.pl/iraqi-fighters-linden-hill-decals/ strange. I have a link here, on one of the pictures there ist the mig 23 with the bomb in question.
  13. Interesting. But what kind if bomb could be the one in the picture ? The caption in the book 'Iraqi Fighters' reads FAB-250ShN but you said this is impossible in 1980. Another source tells that "A STRING OF BOMBS DROPPED BY THE LEADING MIG-23BN FELL ON THE TARMAC IN FRONT OF THE IRANIAN AIRCRAFT INDUSTRIES FACILITY..." It seems unlikely that a whole string of FAB-250s was used to strike a target 320 miles inside iran when most of the hardpoints were occupied by droptanks, doesen't it ?
