Hi there,

I need help with my 1/48 Eduard IIICZ please. Did the CZ have the blue lights on top of both wing tips as in the kit and were they in fact both blue or red/blue left and right respectively? I mean the round lights on top in front of the outer flaperons and not the triangular lights.

Thanks for any help guys.

Pierre

Pretty sure they did. Both sides are blue. I think some form of low intensity formation light. The red/green nav lights are on the leading edge wing tips.

Yes just checked my reference pics of 805 at Swartkop. Round lights are there :smt023

Hi Atc1225

I do not know which config you are doing but just look at the location holes under the wings. They are not correct for a Mir IIIC but for a IIIE. Only Heller managed to get this detail correct in 1/48.

Hi Mistral,

Thanks so much for that, now I can continue :smt023

Joker, wow thanks for that. I am trying to do a spanking new CZ when they arrived from France, that is in natural metal with the red flash as in the kit. I do have the Heller kit and will measure the correct holes on the Eduard kit. There are plenty of mistakes in the Eduard kit. The weapons pylons are very simplified and the supersonic tanks are also not correct. I will be using the Heller ones here and plenty of stuff from PJ Productions, to update the kit.

Thanks again guys!
