Some of you may have seen our MiG-23 article in the February issue of Airfix Model World in which we drew on the research already undertaken for our various MiG-23 decal sheets . If you found the article of interest, The first draft of the text was actually much longer before I edited it down for publication. The earlier draft offered a more extensive synopsis of our friend Tom's experiences as an 'Auswerter' with NVA LSK/LV MiG-23 regiment JG-9. Here's the full version of the text. You're welcome...
It's now a week since the new site went live and thus far I'm very happy with the feedback on its functionality. We are still working on a number of elements of the platform. As a priority we've made some major changes to the AKAN pages.
The old site, creaky and archaic as it was, provided a better overview of which paint was appropriate for which subject, especially within the USSR/Russia section where post-war colors do not follow a standardized nomenclature system. With this in mind we've now made the AKAN section searchable by country, with subsections for both lacquers and acrylics. By the way, the standard rule of thumb with the product codes (SKUs) is that all aqueous acrylic colors begin with a 7 and lacquers begin with a 6. Six-pack codes all begin with a 4, with acrylic six-packs starting with 47 and lacquers 46.
If after this reorganization you still can't find what you're seeking, hit the E-mail button top right and send me a message. I've now been working with AKAN's colors for over 8 years and use them myself. I like to think I've picked up a few snippets of information along the way.
Welcome to the new Linden Hill Imports web site! After many years of procrastination, we have finally decided to enter the modern era with a new E-Commerce platform. The old site would have been twenty years old this August, so an overhaul has been long overdue. Our first customer back in the day was one Phil 'Bondo' Brandt, sadly no longer with us. I'm not sure what he'd think of the new site. I'd assume he'd just want us to ship him his order ASAP, as we always did.
Inevitably there will be some teething problems as we find our way around the new platform. Fingers crossed, they will be minor and temporary.
