ESCI 1/48 MiG-23




ESCI 1/48 MiG-23





So far, the only swing-wing MiG I've completed, out of 3 tries. Its a big, chunky, kit, not much more detailed than the 1/72 Hasegawa effort. The missiles are very wrong- they look just like the illustrations in one of the Crescent/Salamader World Pointy War Planes books, not like the actual AA-7 and AA-8 (NATO ids there) that were later shown publicly.

This kit is NOT made for "optional position landing gear"- they are out, down, its parked, and that's it. You can leave off the legs but getting the doors trimmed and closing up the wells is a minor challenge, for which there are no particular provisions, so I had a bit of adventure getting it cleaned up.

Once done, however, the nice shapes, some stenciling from the decal sheet and my own attept at soft-edge camo using the trusty Badger 250 Paint Sprayer and my bicycle tire as a pressure source resulted in an attractive model. I had to do a bunch of touch-up using a brush for the green and brown overspray...

I poured over various low fi color photos the Soviets released and approximated the tan, brown and green shades with my own mixes of Pactra and Testors and Humbroil solvent based paints. The underside light blue was straight out of someone's bottle. Good, smelly, fun, done in the front yard, where the light was better, at night.

These MiGs have a lot of little areas for detail painting that really bring them alive- the fin-top and nose antennae covers are a semi-gloss gray, There's a dark, protective material, above the twin gun muzzles of the cannons mounted in a flush blister on the belly. Cannon muzzles and the large Pitot tubes get a weathered bare-metal finish, as does the afterburner variable area petals. There's some kind of optical sensor under the nose, but no clear parts for it, so I painted that 'silver' with some shading around it. The cockpit is pretty bare and not very convincing, but the canopy and windscreen are small and the view in is not good so I didn't do too much there. I convinced myself that the frames were a redish brown, not actually matching the brown camo paint, and painted them appropriately.

These MiGs have scoops on the aft fuselage to cool the engine and the structure around it. I lost one of the halves of one of the scoops on the topside. So I took the similar half from the other side, pressed it into some modeling clay, pulled it out carefully and filled the resulting depression with epoxy. Instant copy! I was proud of that. I probably could have made a copy out of part tree material too, but Iacked confidence back in those days...


The '23 and its cousin, the '27, were attractive enough, IMHO, but operated by the likes of Syria, Cuba, Libya and behind=the-Iron Curtain countries. The Bad Guys. Sorry, but the governments of the above were, and although many nice people no doubt worked in the Air Force and operated these demanding and technically sophisticated objects, there really isn't much a record of accomplishment to be proud of for them. The only bright-spot, as it were, was that the Indian Air Force flew them and Hindustan Aeronautics got a license to build them.

The factory color schemes were orange and black, turquoise and cream, dark blue and cream, black and cream, and yellow and cream

The Internal Combustion Engine in Theory and Practice: Vol. 1 - 2nd Edition, Revised: Thermodynamics, Fluid Flow, Performance






This revised edition of Taylor's classic work on the internal-combustion engine incorporates changes and additions in engine design and control that have been brought on by the world petroleum crisis, the subsequent emphasis on fuel economy, and the legal restraints on air pollution.The fundamentals and the topical organization, however, remain the same. The analytic rather than merely descriptive treatment of actual engine cycles, the exhaustive studies of air capacity, heat flow, friction, and the effects of cylinder size, and the emphasis on application have been preserved. These are the basic qualities that have made Taylor's work indispensable to more than one generation of engineers and designers of internal-combustion engines, as well as to teachers and graduate students in the fields of power, internal-combustion engineering, and general machine design.Charles Fayette Taylor is Professor of Automotive Engineering Emeritus at MIT. He directed the Sloan Automotive Laboratories at MIT from 1926 to 1960
