  1. Good work. The animation does really show the differences, esp the nose area
  2. Nice work! I like the Mig-23, too. It has a very sleek look about it. As for the Academy Mig-23, I think I read somewhere it was supposed to depict an early export version of the Mig-23 with smaller radar or something. Maybe that's why the smaller nose. I think the Academy kit is in fact, a copy of the Hasegawa kit but with recessed panel lines. For some details on the Hasegawa / Academy kit , read this excellent thread ( esp the notes by Jim Barr)
  3. So what is the answer that you found? Enquiring minds want to know
  4. The meng kit somehow seems to lack the finesse of the Zoukei-Mura kit.

  6. After more searching, maybe these might help too for Gunze: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10182903 Gunze + other brands: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10610199 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10874750 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10874745
  7. Not sure about Mr Paint or Gunze but the Lifecolor Acrylics paints & their respective FS Colours are: Light Grey UA021 - FS36622 Sand UA084 - FS30400 Brown UA085 - FS30140 Dark Green UA091 - FS34079 as stated on page 2 of this gentleman's awesome build: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234989666-f-14a-iriaf-1986-172-hasegawa/ HTH.
  8. Good work! I remember building this very kit years ago and recall that the fit was actually very good. Fujimi's Phantoms are quite nicely done and their Spey engined British Phantoms are, IMHO, still the best in 1/72. They go together with less fuss than the Airfix one. Looking forward to seeing your Phantom finished Shark mouth Phantoms in SEA camo are always a treat.
  9. Could it be the "sand color" actually looks more yellow?
  10. PJ Productions : https://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/kits/pj/kit_pj_321118.shtml Or, if you know of anyone getting this kit & has no plans to use the pilots ( although they are for Gr.4 pilots).... https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10802007 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10802007/20/3 For Andy: https://www.pj-production.be/en/figures-1-48/63-481115-raf-fighter-pilot-seated-in-ac-80-90-.html
  11. Peter, the Hasegawa G4M1 may be old but it's not too bad and does fit well. See sroubos's build on BM: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235114609-172-mitsubishi-g4m1-betty-by-sword-models-box-artschemesdecalssprues-release-september-october-2022/&do=findComment&comment=4488978 And another nice build here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235109866-hasegawa-172-betty-g4m1-with-okha-old-tooling/
  12. Wow! This is the first model I have seen of the Tejas. Awesome work!
  13. Don't know if this helps but I like this modeler's technique ( from 17:08 onwards). He used chipping fluid. You can see how he created the metal wear effects from 21:05 onwards. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hJ2hI3YIXM
