Cold War Studios' CWS48024 MiG-23BN Conversion

Stenka of Cold War Studios, a Bulgarian Company, has re-released a MiG-23BN conversion for Trumpeter's MiG-23BN kits and it is a wonder why I don't see them mentioned more often. For 24 Euros, this small package is COMPLETE for the conversion yet allows for other detail sets to be used.

The main parts of the conversion are the resin nose which is correctly sculpted and very well cast. The only real 'issue' is the heavy panel lining done but this can easily be fixed.

Other details (like the nose bay doors on the right side of the photo) are also well done and multiples of delicate parts are provided. Bottom left, above and ahead of the Warhawk's nose, is the nose gear mudguard. Other details include the seat back, probes, and blisters.

Unlike the discontinued initial MiG-23BN release which had vacuum-formed canopies, this one has them cast in clear resin.

A dedicated PE set is included and has a specific instrument panel to use.

Best of all, I can use many of the other detail sets I already have in my stash as Cold War Studios (CWS) intelligently concentrated on the conversion parts necessary.

I definitely need to get more for my other Floggers!
