  1. Hi Ken Thanks for the reply. Yes I meant SU25 wheels. I was up late and must have mistyped it. You are right about the variations in colours on russian jets. Even the cockpits can vary in colour depending on what factory it was made at. I've seen SU25 cockpits ranging from that real greyish blue to standard grey. Thanks for the pics though.
  2. Hi all I'm an old school modeller and always use humbrol. Could anyone tell me what humbrol green is the most accurate green to paint the SU25 wheels? Russian aircraft can be painful as you sometimes see slightly different shades of grey or other colours in cockpits and aircraft parts depending on which factory it was made in. But if anyone can tell me the best match of humbrol green to paint the SU25 wheels, most appreciated. Cheers
  3. Hi there Thanks for that. Yes Dmitry sounds great. He answered all my questions quickly on email and explained all the loadout options for me on my migs. But for the MER they only hold FAB100s or any other 100kg bomb. So I got two sets of the MBD2-67U MERs and some ZAB 100-105s for thé racks. I bought two sets of them as I have a mig21, mig23 and currently doing a Frogfoot. So got those and some RBK 250 PTAB 2,5Ms, RBK 250-275 AO1s cluster bombs and two sets of UB-8MI rocket pods. So all sorted for them. He makes good stuff at reskit so they should look nice. Trumpeter we
  4. Just need some info on the russian MBD2-67U multiple ejection racks. Can anyone tell me if these could carry any larger bombs than the FAB100? I've only been able to find pics of them with 4 FAB100s on them. I just wondered if they could be !oaded up with two FAB250s or RBK250s? Anyone tell me? Also could they be carried on a mig21 with 4 FAB100s on each MER under each wing? I want to use it either on my Frogfoot or Mig23 or maybe if possible on my mig21 Any help appreciated Cheers
  5. Thanks for the info. Yes I forgot the Mig23 had a max load of 3000Kg. I think I'll arm it up with a few RBK 250 frag bombs
  6. I've decided to order someMBD2-67U MERs, set of RBK 250 and a set of RBK -275 AO1 cluster bombs from reskit. Ive got a Frogfoot,. Mig21 and a mig-23 which I want to do as all Afghanistan war birds so those items should cover my migs and my Frogfoot. I've also got the new 1/32 trumpeter mig29 SMT I want to do as a version deployed to Syria. So not sure what I'll put on that. It appears they are just carrying FAB 250s I he Syrian conflict. Anyone seen any pics of th SMT with a different loadout?
  7. Just one more quick question. What bombs could the russian MBD2-67U Multiple ejector racks carry? I've seen them on the Mig23 carrying 8 FAB100s on each one but could they also carry larger RBK 250s with 4 on each MER?
  8. Great. Thanks for the links. Again most appreciated
  9. Hi guys Thanks for the info. Yes I'm stupid as I realised that one was a TER And the other MER. I thought they carried mk 82s and mavericks on the TERs in the 91 gulf war as slant 2s like you said just two bombs on the MER. I'm just waiting for my book "the modern guide to the hog" to arrive in the mail any day so I'll wait and see my book. I want to either a gulf war loadout from desert storm or as I was lucky enough to pick up the speed hunter decals the other day on eBay, I may make A10C. In that case the loadout will be completely different of course if I do a current A10C
  10. Hi all I'm wanting to get some 1/32 Eduard brassin MERs for my A10. I see they make two types of MERs. Product numbers 632102 & 632103 Could anyone tell me the difference between the two different MERs and which ones I should put on the A10? I was probably going to use them for Mk 82 slicks and for some mavericks Any help most appreciated Cheers
  11. Hi Jari Thanks for all the info and taking your time to help me out. I'm going to use the reskit stuff. They have excellent resin russian bombs and MERs. So I'll be all sorted with the reskit stuff. It's great to see a company took the time to make excelkent russian bombs/munitions. So now with reskit and zacto, any modeller making russian machines has it covered. Also Dmitry at reskit is excellent in helping out providing a wealth of info to any of your questions. So guys, look no further than reskit for your russian munitions.
  12. Yes I was thinking it was probably only the 100 kg FABs on the MER. I just emaied reskit so see if they have what I need. Again thanks for the info. Yes I only do 1/32 So my next question is, does anyone have 10 FAB 100 bombs you could sell me? I think I might bomb up my mig23 MLD with 16 of them. I just prefer mud movers. I'll get the reskit MERs. So if anyone can help me out, that would be great. I have the Frogfoot but seem to have only 6 FAB 100s in it
  13. Hi Jari Thanks for the pics. They are great. Do you know if they fitted MBD2-67U multiple ejection racks to hold the FAB 250 or FAB 500s? 0or OFAB 250 or OFAB 500s. I read the mig-23 used a lot of OFAB 500 fragmentation bombs. Any idea where I could get OFAB 250 or OFAB 500 bombs? Does the trumpeter russian bomb set have OFAB bombs in it? I know the trumpeter bombs are not sensational in detail but have to work with what you got right?
  14. Hi mate Thanks for the reply If you send me your email, I could send a couple of pics of the kite for you to see
  15. Anyone know if anyone mk Alex OFAB 500 russian fragmentation bombs in 1/32 scale? The Russians used them a lot on the Mig-23s and I want to do a Afghanistan machine. Does home know if they are in the 1/32 Trumpeter russian seaons set?
  16. Cool thanks for the info. From the pics I've seen, that seems to be the case. But it's a shame as I'd love to bomb it up as a truly multi-role fighter. I don't understand why the Russians aren't using guided munitions and testing their ground attack munitions. It's the perfect forum for it.
  17. No worries matey. A simple answer of "sorry buddy, you posted in the wrong forum, try and post in the aircraft help forum. That would have been an easy reply instead of just answering with a stupid sarcastic reply knowing a Cherokee 140 is not a maritime boat. Be helpful, not negative. We all don't use these forums on a dai!y basis like most of you.
  18. I'm after a 1/32 black box mig-21 cockpit set. If anyone has one to sell, can you PM me? Cheers
  19. I find a lot of users on forums just simply use them like Facebook. They lead boring life's but these forums give them a outlet to to be something. Like I was reading on one thread how cool it was carrying a gun on the pistol range and to have a permit to carry so they strut around with their handgun I. A holster looking cool Well I can assure you when you are a working police detective working undercover having to carry s gun 24/7 that novelty soons wears off and carry a gun is just a pain in the arse. Trust me, did thst job for 15 years. But those who obviously fail to enter the po
  20. Obviously my mistake. Sorry you couldn't have just said, instead of sarcastically making an issue out of it. I'll be sure next time when I have a ship issue to ensure I ask you super helpful people that assist users, not sarcastically berate them for making an honest mistake. But hey, where wound be without those who like to have their limelight on forums
  21. Hi all I'm wanting a 1/32 KM-1 ejection seat for my mig23. I have the aires cockpit set but I'm not completely satisfied with the seat. Can anyone recommend an accurate KM-1 seat? I'd prefer a seat with seatbelts. Amy help appreciated it. There seems to a lot of KM-1 seats in 1/32 scale made by different manafactureres in resin. I found the best KM-1seat in the CE mig21 cockpit set and the black box Km-1 seat is also not bad. But if anyone can recommend a good accurate KM-1 Seat in 1/32, I'd be most appreciative. Cheers
  22. It is a light aircraft made by piper iin the 1960s
  23. Thanks for the info. I also read thru used CFAB 500 cluster bombs. I'll wait till I'll get my famous russian aircraft mig-23 book and have look. I think best bet. Thanks for your reply
  24. I'm making a 1/48 model of my dad's Cherokee 140. It has quite a lot of nostalgia to me as I learnt to fly in this aircraft and and obtained my politics licence in it. However I need someone to make s set of decals for me. I only need the top and bottom wing decals "VH - CHF" and a small version of "VH-CHF" for both sides of the lower fuselage just forward of the tail plane. So it's a relatively easy job as all markings in black. I can size the decals for you but just need them made and printed. Can anyone help. It would be most appreciated as I'm giving it to my fa
  25. Hi all Sorry for the questions. I'm also wanting to do a mig_23 MLD flogger K depicted an aircraft deployed to Afghanistan in the 80s. Again I'm struggling to find any pics of the mig-23 deployed in Afghanistan. Can anyone tell me if they were used just as CAPs to protect ground attack aircraft or were they used in a ground attack role as well? If used in the ground attack role, can anyone tell me what ground attack munitions were they were using in this role? I've just bought the famous russian aircraft mig-23 and mig-27 book by Yesim GORDON which should be an exce
