MiG-811
« on: May 21, 2020, 11:42:25 am »
I have ordered then received the Trumpeter 1/144 kit of PLAAF F-8 II twin-jet supersonic fighter, the Wikipedia corresponding article speaking of Shenyang J-8 II : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shenyang_J-8
So… F or J? Mine could have been coded MiG-8 II (as the wings are from a MiG-21 and the rest from a MiG-23 it seems), but this sound too old like before the MiG-15, so I considered MiG-88 or MiG-81, but as this is different from the J-8 I, I choose MiG-811.
In the civilian Tophe Air Team it twill be very shortened with T-tail, as I did with the Mirage F.1 (not finished yet).

The first drops of glue start the plastic way, but this is not what-if yet: :unsure: :-\ ;)

As (on the normal J/F-8 II) there are two parts of fin (one big above, one small below) I consider maybe building a twin-boomer (with sprues as booms). Which would be better? "A" a little asymmetric or "B" more asymmetric? :unsure: ;D

EDIT: According to Google Translate, "twin-boom" ("bipoutre" in French, masculine) is "dvukhbalochniy" (or the feminine "dvukhbalochnaya") in Russian and "shuāng liáng" in Chinese.

Now I have cut away the wings to move them a lot forward, but I still have not decided what I will build: shape A or B (above)? :unsure:

I would say shape A, but knowing you Tophe it is more likely to be B (or an even more altered version).  :thumbsup:
