A new-tool 1/ Blackjack, featuring fully detailed cockpit and landing gear, nicely done intakes and exhausts, optional-position IFR probe, and moving wings. No weapons bay detail, though, and the folding inner wing section must be glued in either the up or down position, which partly negates the value of having movable wings. Trumpeter 1/ Shenyang F8-II/J8-II "Finback" to have one. Since I was going to build it, and it's a new kit, I volunteered, and John Noack accepted this review. The Finback apparently is a development by the Chinese on their J-8, which uses the MiG as its' starting point. the "huge" sink mark in the exhaust. Since it's 1/, it.
And 2 the "huge" sink mark in the exhaust. Upgrades have given the TU a very effective conventional capability. On a model of this size, it would take dozens of small tins of model paint to airbrush, but fortunately, here in the UK there is a ready-made alternative — acrylic car sprays. A small stand is provided to show the missile in this in-flight configuration. Despite all my best efforts to eliminate the joint line between front and rear fuselage halves, it was still visible — especially after a applying a coat of primer to highlight just such a problems. Stevens International doesn't list this kit, but it's on the Trumpeter web site.
The plastic components are all individually bagged and there is a separate internal box containing the rubber tires, white-metal undercarriage legs, etched-brass instrument panels and clear sprue containing the canopy, side windows and other clear components — all in separate plastic bags. The two largest components — the upper and lower main fuselage mouldings — are loose in the top of the box, but delicate parts — such as the tailcone on the upper fuselage moulding — is protected by plastic wrapping.
Presumably due to moulding limitations, the forward fuselage is a separate component — in upper and lower halves. This means that there is a joint line in a very prominent place right across the fuselage behind the cockpit which must be eliminated. The plastic components are moulded in mid-grey plastic with delicate engraved detail.
Approximately of those parts go to make up the twelve Kh and two KhM cruise missiles and their associated MKUU rotary launchers. The decal sheet also contains a limited amount of stencilling and, as supplied is perfectly adequate — but there are better decal sheets on the market, of which more anon.
The build begins, naturally enough, with the cockpit. This is very comprehensive, with the four crew places, a long corridor to the rear entrance hatch - it even includes a crew toilet! The K ejection seats are reasonably accurate in this scale — not much can be seen anyway, so I chose not to replace them. An etched-brass firing handle completes the assembly.
Stevens International doesn't list this kit, but it's on the Trumpeter web site. The Aircraft: I've been fascinated by the exotic and unusual in aircraft, and this one fits both categories. When I saw this little box on a table at a swap meet, I had to have one. Since I was going to build it, and it's a new kit, I volunteered, and John Noack accepted this review.
The Finback apparently is a development by the Chinese on their J-8, which uses the MiG as its' starting point. The wing and tail of the J-8II still have MiG family resemblance, but the intakes have been moved back from the nose to the fuselage sides, and there are 2 engines.
The fuselage is bigger - both to hold 2 engines, and to carry more fuel. This gives more room for avionics in the nose, and probably overcomes the MiG's short range problems.
There's some information out there, but it's pretty slim. Mostly a few photos and some speculation about performance. But the lack of information just adds to the mystery and makes it more interesting to me. Thanks to Inspector 7, all the parts were there.
The kit has recessed panel lines, but they are a little on the heavy side. There is a nice little seat in the cockpit, but no stick, panel or consoles. But then, putting them in might be revealing some State Secret. I did add strips of Tamiya tape for seat belts. There are locating pins and holes for the pylons in the wing and fuselage.
Чтобы раззадорить супруга и пробудить в нем жажду секса, телочка начала перед ним позировать и сидя на стуле показывать не только ножки в чулках, но и трусики под юбкой. Солнце стояло уже высоко, когда они вышли из леса и наконец оказались перед горными стенами Лиса. He would take the material, and with his throbbing cock in one hand, wank, till he came.
