One could get a 1/72 Shenyang J-8II kit and backdate it to the J-8I configuration.  ;)  :wacko:

While the designation is incorrect, the aircraft is real:

Greg does quite a range of his 'Flights 0f Fancy' decals, and very good they are too.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

While the designation is incorrect, the aircraft is real:

The 'MiG-23' designation was actually given to it officially in the West and the 'Flipper' reporting name came from NATO's ASCC, so it's not even the kit company's fault.

I've got one too, for nostalgia reasons since I built and screwed up one back in the day. :thumbsup:
