    Fast forward to about 4:50 or so. I can't tell if it is or isnt a panther.

    I've just been thrilled to death with my little 64mm panther upgraded to 4s and the either 11 or 12 blade fan that comes in eflites 64mm f-15. Seriously one of my favorite planes to fly, but belly land only so can't fly it everywhere I fly.

      • Yup, that's the new Mig-17. I thought it was a Sabre but someone already started a thread about it:

        You can see it clearly in the poster.

        Oh, I almost had a heart palpitation when you said "Panther". Glad it's the Mig. My bank account can't take anymore at the moment. Now, if someone brought out a quality Vulcan bomber with maybe twin or even quad EDF, I may have to get a loan.

          Yea me too. I would have had to buy one of them Panthers, I'd buy a Cougar too to be honest. But a Mig 17, Meh never liked those commy planes too much. But I might just get one to reward HK for thinking outside of the box. LOL

          Best Regards

            • Rattle can silver and an email to Callie would fix it right up.

                I thought it was either a Sabre or MiG because it didn't have "bingo wings" like the Panther and Cougar. And a twin 64 mm Vulcan would be nice too, but I'd prefer the original anti-flash white because there's too much green where I fly.

                  Thats what I was thinking, camo on a Mig, not for me anyway, that fat little piggy does nothing for me...............

                  • Agreed, the camo is just wrong. From what I can tell it is some modern outfit running a vintage mig with that livery.

                    Anyway, a little primer, a little repaint here and there and it would make a nice addition to my Yak 120, and L-39.

                    • As a Canuck, with no planes worth anything ever built; I shouldn't have an opinion about anyone's aircraft, but, Russian planes always remind me of flying "Chewing Gum Packages"...This livery looks like a Dentyne gum package and so do their red ones. American planes are the best looking, bar none....

                        • I will still buy one just to do the repaint!

                            That Canadian FA-18 posted in the Freewing 90mm F/A-18 C topic, though, is a sharp-looking paint scheme.

                              I beg to differ. You had the CF-100 which was good during it's time, and a potential history maker with the Arrow. Canada's problem wasn't the planes, it was the politicians, a disease you seemed to inherit from the UK.

                                You're right about the politicians. It was Dum-dum Diefenbaker who put the kybosh on the Arrow, which was way ahead of its time. Some guys here are trying to build a scaled down version at the small airfield just outside of the city.

                                  Not that we have much room to feel superior in regards to politicians here in the US, either.

                                  (And that isn't a Party-specific observation, either)

                                    The Black Diamonds flew one like it. That's what it is. Click image for larger version

                                      He didn't just cancel the plane, he had it wiped from existence by ordering EVERYTHING related to the project destroyed. An the UK did the same thing with TSR.

                                        I guess we've exhausted all the "political" and "geopolitical" ramifications of the world and it's poor old airplane debauchery! As I have witnessed; America; maybe Britain and maybe Germany; have produced the best planes of all time and..." it is what it is!" Nothing can be fixed and everything that is broken is a lesson in "stupid human interference". Every engineer; technician; electrician; electronics person; metalworker; designer; mechanic; engine specialist; pilot; scientist; aeronautics person and inventor; has to beat themselves to a pulp only to let the "hierarchy" make the last decision which is the worst one of them all!.....Bloody Morons!!!!
