Bristol Stilleto F.1A - No.56 Squadron, RAF Fighter Command, 1961









I've previously done a later MiG-21 in RAF service as the BAC Stilleto F.3 (on the current Page 28) but to do an earlier F.1A I needed to decide which BAC founding company to allocate the Stilleto to and thought Bristol would be a good choice.

Ilyushin IL-28 'Beagle' - Lancashire Air Force, 1963









This is a quick conversion of my Fuerza Aérea Argentina Beagle and I think it then steered me to use a 'Communist' star instead of a roundel. I did also design a roundel and will post that in a minute.

Mikoyen-Gurevich MiG-21PFMJ (Fishbed 'F') - 302nd Hikotai, JASDF











This is one of two stock VPAF MiG-21 camo schemes in 'Strike Fighters 2:Vietnam' and three out of the five bitmaps needed a bit of work as the canopy frame, pylons and gun-pod were in silver. It definitely has a ZERO look to it so I've used yellow serial numbers but stopped short of adding a vertical yellow band.

Final JASDF MiG-21 for now and this is the second of the stock VPAF schemes from 'Strike Fighters 2:Vietnam' which required a bit of touching up around the windscreen and canopy area.

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-19S - HävLLv 31, Finnish Ilmavoimat, 1966











Wow! I like this photoset myself! This is the stock MiG-19S made flyable by using the F-100D pit and using a stock (but rarely seen) Egyptian camo with my well-used Finnish decals including some new 'MG-300' series decals*. What sets these off is the camo against the snowy backdrop and this is a terrain called 'British Isles' (for it includes Ireland) by a modder called Baltika - it's superb and is basically normal towns and fields but with snowy mountains exactly where the UK has mountains. BTW this terrain would be perfect for some Patchwork World action!


* I'm thinking MG-100 series for MiG-15, MG-200 series for MiG-17, MG-300 series for MiG-19, etc.

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-19S - HävLLv 21, Finnish Ilmavoimat, 1978







Final Finnish 'Farmer' for now. The fin marking uses a bit of artistic licence and utilises the Eagle seen inside a grey triangle with a blue border (the only marking commonly seen for HävLLv 21) and I thought I'd move the serial number to the nose and introduce a simple '21' marking on the fin using blue from the Finnish roundel on a white background.

Miles-Mikoyan Farmer FGA.4 - No.41 Squadron, Royal Air Force, Exercise Sandstorm, 1984









I've previously done some nice and shiny RAF Farmers so thought I'd knock-up a 'Desert Pink' Farmer at the end of it's service life! Miles was chosen for the alliterative effect but I see the Farmer being more of a Gloster product.

Hawker Harrier Mk51 - Escuadrón Aéreo 112, Fuerza Aérea del Perú, 1973











N.B. Some 'artistic licence' has been taken here with the national markings and the nose marking is straight out of me own 'ed.

Grumman A-6A(FN) - 12 & 17 Flottilles, l'Aéronautique Navale Française, 1965


















Now available for downl;oad at Combat Ace!

The A-6A was in 'Wings Over Vietnam' but unfortunately it missed the cut for 'Strike Fighters 2:Vietnam' which is a real shame as it is very enjoyable to fly this aircraft on a strike mission - especially with MiG-17's on your tail! Thankfully, it can be made flyable by lifting the pit out of the original game and installing it into your newer game although mine seems to have lost a few dials along the way.

McDonnell Douglas F-4E - Grupo de Aviacion Nº 12, Fuerza Aérea de Chile, 1982








Now available for download at Combat Ace!

With the imminent rescue of the trapped Chilean miners I thought I'd release this. I've added a 'tiger' fintip and also amended the national markings.
