  1. Hi all, Im about to bite the bullet next week and buy the 1/32 SU-25UB Frogfoot, mainly because it’s an ugly beast and unusual. I also want to throw a load of resin at it too, just for something different, and I see that Aires make a load of sets, but, what I want to know is will the Frogfoot A Wheel Bays and the Electronics bays fit into the two seat UB version? Im really looking at doing a fully loaded (Weapons wise) Ukrainian Digital Camo version, so would like to know what aftermarket there is out there for this kit, what’s the best for it, how’s the kit build, etc etc. Not bothered about the cost really as it’s going to be a once in a lifetime long term build, so the time spent will outweigh the costs. Im after as much help as possible really. Thanks
  2. Do you have any web links for me to look at regarding the US MiG-23’s please?
  3. I have spent best part of today, and got nowhere, on trying to cross over the paint Colors from the bottom jet scheme, into Hataka Orange Line, MRP, or Tamiya. Please Please can some help me? Even if they are FS codes, that would help!! I’m going nuts! Ive tried loading the Paints4models paint conversion chart but it doesn’t work on an iPad and I don’t have a PC. Thanks in advance. https://acrylicosvallejo.com/en/producto/hobby/sets/air-war-en/soviet-russian-colors-mig23-flogger-from-coldwar-to-90-vallejo-airwar-71606/
  4. A while ago, I found some pictures of a Polish or Russian (??) MiG-23 in a three tone scheme of White, Medium Grey and Black, and another in White, Blue, Grey. I am buggered if I can find the pictures now tho! Doh!! I'm currently building the Trumpeter MiG-23 with every item of aftermarket I could lay my hands on and loved the above scheme but am annoyed I lost the info, can anyone help? Either the above Schemes or even a nice Natural Metal finish MiG would be my dream, can anyone help? If someone happens to find the above three tone scheme, any ideas on the actual colours or MRP/Mr Hobby/Etc numbers? Thanks so much in advance.
  5. I’m currently building the Tamiya A6M5 and am stuck on the colours for it! The Scheme I have chosen for it is attached, BOTTOM AIRCRAFT WITH YELLOW BAND, but, as it’s a Nakajima built machine, I cannot work out the Green shade for the upper surfaces, is it IJN Green D1 or IJN Green D2? Same for the Grey undersides - Hairyokushoku Grey Green? I only use AK Real Colours so help with those paint codes would be a great help if possible please? Thanks in advance.
  6. Hi, Im looking to do one of my Tamiya Spit’s with open gun bays and open radio hatch, but I can’t seem to find any aftermarket that will help with either of these, does anyone know of anything please? Thanks
  7. I have the chance of buying either of the 1/32 HPH resin kits of the F7F Tigercat or the ME410, relatively cheap, but.........I can’t decide which to get??? Which one would you have and why?? Has anyone built either of these and can show pictures and offer advice on them please? Im not a newbie to resin kits nor shy away from a challenge! Thanks
  8. I’ve been watching many YouTube videos of Russian and Polish MiG’s on startup, and many of them use a starter or Ground Power Unit that is basically a square box on wheels, the front two wheels are obviously movable to steer the unit. The GPU actually looks very similar to the British ‘Houchin’ GPU except the Russian/Polish Unit doesn’t have the ‘Side Trays’. So, it would seem right to scratch build this unit, or even use some of the parts from the 1/32 Flightpath ‘Houchin’ GPU to use as a basis?? I've searched the web for the aforementioned HAD Models conversion for the APA-5D unit but to no avail. Thanks
  9. I’m doing a MiG-23 so anything from that timeline really. I suppose 1960’s to present. I can’t find any pictures either to work from unless anyone can help.
  10. Hi, Anyone know where I can lay my hands on a 1/32 Soviet Jet starter cart please? Or Even some pictures so I can have a go at scratch building one? I’ve trawled the web but can’t find anything!? Thanks

  12. I want to do one of the aircraft from the 1969 film ‘Battle of Britain’, so, tell me what I need and where from please? Thanks
  13. Hi id love to do a CASA 211 using the Revell HE 111P as a base, but I can’t find any Merlins and cowls that I could use, I’ve searched and searched unless you knowledgeable chaps know of any way it could be done or where to get the bits from please? Cheers
  14. Hi, Im currently building the HobbyBoss 1/32 P-61B (With Corrections!) but am stuck! I can’t find any info on the colours of the following areas and I’m reading to load up the airbrush!! Cockpit Rear Radar Operators Station Underside Gun Bay U/C Bays Cowl Inner Faces U/C Legs Im going to do it as a 422nd NFS bird, now I know they were Black, and sources suggest High Gloss Black, is that right or is it actually Satin/Semi Matt??
