Trumpeter Mig-23 - Nose problems

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I posted this originally in the "Spares Box" classified forum but it got limited views so I'll try here in the hope more people see it and can maybe help me.

I am well on my way through a Trumpeter 1/48 Mig-23 build - specifically the Mig-23-MLD "Flogger K" version.

With most things assembled, I have discovered the sprue that contains the nose cone - sprue K - is not in the kit box (The same sprue also has what I think are chaff / flare dispensers that mount on the top of the fuselage). Nor can I find it anywhere around my work table which leads me to think it was never in the box to start with.

I contacted Stevens International, the US distributor for Trumpeter, but because I live in Canada and bought the kit from an online store they say they cannot help me. Contacting said retailer has also not worked out.

So, in a bit of desperation here not wanting to lose all my work so far,

1) does anyone have a Mig-23 nose they don't need (a long shot I know, but....)

or

2) can someone suggest an alternative / aftermarket solution?

Many thanks.

Just a little patience and I will release a MiG-23 ML/MLD correct nose set. I just have to finish the MiG-23 BN correct nose and canopy first.

Excellent news!! Will this correction help with the canopy sill as well?

Thank you

Picking this correction set will be a nice little seller - please make lots of castings. I will be in for one of each [bN/ML] at the least :)

Good news!

Since Trumpeter only has one MiG-27 variant in their catalog, hopefully Cold War Studio will release other versions.

That's the typical reply you get from Stevens International. They need to be put out of business! If I see the Stevens label on the kit, I will not consider buying it!

The ML/MLD nose is almost done. Have to finish scribing some access panels. The nose from Metallic Details is for M/MF Floggers.
