  1. Indeed, Looking at their previous work, Clear Prop would be a harsh competitor to ICM if they eventually release their Flogger. And I hope they don't wait too long either for their Su-25 release, but that's a bit to much sideways. Lets hope they keep us posted so at least we can drool over our screens while the kit takes shape!
  2. I already have a 23MS, MF and BN from that company which name schould not be mentioned (seemingly in Gabor's comments 😉), so these need at least to be joined by a few UBs, an MLD and one or maybe two 27s. So come on with it. Except the 27 maybe, these are findable for ICM for a good measurement. I hope they take the main landing gear difference into account when they get to the MLx versions.
  3. Ooh, fart, that's very good news, however, how will I ever be able to convince my wife about that being good 😁
  4. Indeed, those chinese variants were also spread across the world to make some very tasty modelling subjects. I also hope the FT-7 could be included too when that Fishbed nephew is properly adressed in 72nd
  5. Oh indeed, I forgot the Zvezda Bis but can't compare as I don't have it in the flesh 😉 Indeed, if it just has to be a MiG-21, Eduard is the one like pollie said!
  6. Offcourse it al depends what type of MiG you want to add to your collection, however if you are looking for the MF or PF/PFM types you should certainly look out for an Eduard boxing. For the Bis variant, there is the KP kit, which is the R.V. Aircraft tooling. It is also good, with a bit of a shape error to the nose according to some, but the best so far imho. However surely not the easiest build. The earliest types of 21s being the F and F-13 are covered by Modelsvit. The F-13 is also available in Revell's own mould, which has some intake issues iirc, but cheaper than
  7. Indeed, the stinger itself is also a bit different, next to the thicker fairings on both sides, which on the early ones develope in flat strakes. When making Ukrainian Flankers you should check, as they still operate both.
  8. I don't think there's much else to do, but as you might know the versions before the 27P had a different stinger shape. So you have to check your references for that, otherwise I think you're good to go, good luck and please share your work 😉
  9. I guess the C had the same Triple Plow 1 intakes as the FB. The tail stinger on a FB however, has a smaller 8-shape with the fuel dump pipe running directly underneath. The C had the same as the D/E/F, with the dump pipe integrated in a bigger 8-shaped stinger. I hope you know what I'm trying to say. Then there's a circular thing just in front of the windscreens on the FBs, giving a slight hump between the radome and cockpit glazing. It looks similar as some AMP upgraded Es had later on, so I don't know if they had it always, or if this was also part of an upgrade. I do think they ha
  10. Uh, well, We wrote the same realy, only yours is a bit more detailed. I took maybe a tighter turn on the explanation. However, thanks for your deeper insights 😉
  11. If the colors on the tailband are devided forward/aft, the color at the leading edge (forward) indicates the squadron the King originated from. That's why sometimes you could see them beeing swapped around if there's a command change. A cool derivative was the Aviano 89-2137 AV's 31st OG, which had the colors green and purple devided diagonaly. They also were swapped around indicating other timeframes. Spangdahlem's 52nd's Wing King had for example lightning bolts in red, yellow and blue, indicating the 23rd, 81st and 22nd FS. After loosing one squadron of F-16s they lost the
  12. I guess the only difference is the offset IRST ball and a refueling probe. With an Su-27UB as a base kit... dunno if there's any aftermarket for that in 32nd though...
  13. It was a wrap around 'Lizard' sheme though, all of them in the Euro one. And the later SEA camo was also painted in Lizard version too

    The M3 is, while being upgraded again, the only version still operational. So if you want a recent variant, that's the one. On the outside, the M3 is very recognisable by it's 'Foxbat' shaped intakes. Where the M2 had Phantom/Flogger like intakes. Greetings
  15. Understandable @KursadA, Is there a limitation to microscale decals compared to Cartograf's then? Then maybe a special version with a couple EP-3Es and a Japanese EP-3C would do the sale trick? I don't know how the US citizen thinks about Iran, but regardless of politics, their camo paterns on Orions and (no pun intended) their CH-53Ds are pure art to me 😉
