Here is the other RMAF MiG-29N specially commissioned by our local JC Wings retailer.











The model should arrive in early August.

Another win for RMAF collectors.

It seems like JCW are more into commission builds then regular releases, I hear their also doing a special commission RSAF F-15.

Specially commission models are guaranteed $ale.

I really hope the retailer can sell these two lots of MiG-29. Quantity is 600 pcs per model.

Who knows, if this is a success, the retailer may commission JC to do the Su-30MKM. Adding canard wings may be a taller order than adding the refuelling probe.

YEAH! I finally have got the specially commissioned JC Wings RMAF MiG-29N models. But assembling them is rather frustrating.



There were two QC issues on the "Smokey Bandit" model.

The torque link of the front landing gear is somewhat straight rather than at an angle. I had to go back to the retailer to exchange the front wheel.



After I got back with the correct wheel, I discovered that JCW have given me TWO LEFT wheel up covers but not the LEFT wheel down cover. Now I have to go back to get the replacement.

What is even more frustrating is to just learn from our new defence minister, Mohamad Sabu (there was a change of government on May 9) that ONLY FOUR OUT OF RMAF'S 28 RUSSIAN FIGHTER JETS CAN FLY".

RMAF HAVE 18 Su-30MKM and 10 MiG-29. Only 4 Sukhois are flyable!!

These are our front line fighters. Just as well we are not at war with our neighbours, otherwise we are dead ducks.

Perhaps RSAF F-15s could help.

The amount of platforms in the RMAF and the age of the type I guess its not surprising.

I spent a year,...on and off at RMAF Butterworth. Great times for an Aviation Enthusiasts. In the early days, 1988 there was the A4s, F5 and Macchi 339s. As time went there were plenty of visitors such as the RAF F3s, USAF F15s and of course plenty of RAAF F18s.

But a highlight was watching 3 MIG 29s take off from the base after a visit in 01. They make a racket.

why would a minister of defence expose their vulnerability instead of playing it up like most do? another weird bit is actually expecting a country that was expelled and left vulnerable back in the day to actually come to your aid in times of need. by the way, has the water dispute been sorted out?



https://thediplomat.com/2018/07/putt...and-singapore/


on a related note, i have the fulcrums incoming and hopefully without the issues you encountered. getting replacements is such a pain...

To galvanise the general public to accept, or even advocate for increases in Defence spending.

Or, more likely the Minister is starting the first shots in a battle to reform the Malaysian Defence Force or RMAF. After reading the Star article its seems reasonably clear that is the Minister's intent.

Informing the public is a start.

Availability rates such as those mentioned by kltower are not uncommon: the Luftwaffe has an appalling availability rate within both their EF2000 and Tornado fleets (actually the German armed forces in general - eg their Leopard 2s did an exercise recently with the Dutch units with whom they operate as a combined armoured formation during which they used broomsticks in place of missing coaxial machine guns!), the USAF Raptor fleet is constantly struggling to maintain enough airframes to meet both operational and training requirements, the USMC Hornet fleet is in a parlous state (they had to get parts from museums...) and the Canadians seem to only have sufficient availability within their Bug fleet to keep up the cartoonish special scheme fleet fully flying

Really, what?

Whats the connection between Malaysia's Defence Minister openly discussing problems with the RMAF publically and a Canadian Government who has delayed the F18 replacement program so far to the right that they require RAAF F18s to supplement the fleet?

kltower no doubt knows more than me,......but it is my understanding the sustainability of the RMAF fleets has been an issue for quite a while.

Maybe the minister is gearing up for a single platform purchase in addition to reform?

curious... with the exception of the much publicised rcaf insufficiency, did all the other bits come from official channels, though?

For years our Air Force has been talking about upgrade.

But we don't have the DOUGH. There are too much leakages. 1MDB is prime example. That's why we kicked out the last government (they lasted for 60+ years). Hopefully, the new government will have better transparency.

We are still with the French investigating about corruption and kickbacks that were linked to the Scropene submarine when Najib (ex-prime minister) was the minister of defence.

We lost quite a number of ex-USAF A-4 that were stored in the US when we lost the ownership papers.

Yes we are good at spending money. Building mega projects but not in maintaining them. Big capital expenditure means big corruption.

Well were are not alone. I believe the Indonesian also have a high number of unflyable planes.

Yeah,...serviceability and sustainment issues also plague multiple fleets that make up the TNI-AU.

In Australia we have had issues with the Tiger, so much so a replacement program has already commenced (although it maybe delayed). It was political decision. Army wanted the Apache or Cobra Z but Government went for the Tiger because the European Consortium allowed them to be assembled here in Australia. Unfortunately, Australia did not read the fine print that well and we were rogered in the sustainment piece.

Quite the waste of money.

OFF TOPIC:

I was discussing with Han Tee, the owner of My Hobby House, about the lack of RMAF models in the market while our neighbour RSAF have quite few in F-16s, F-15s, E-2 Hawkeyes and Jet provost.

I don't think we would have less collectors in Malaysia than Singapore.

His answers was Singapore planes has more overseas collectors.

According to him JC Wings produce 600 specially commissioned RSAF F-15SG “50th Anniversary “. In addition they produce an extra 100 units for the US market.

For the RMAF MiG-29s they did not produce any extra.

Interesting. I guess it helps they are US built aircraft and the Singaporean F15s are pretty special and unique. They also get about a lot more. For instance two were at Avalon Air Show last year and they are often in Australia on exercise. Plus they have done Red Flag exercises at Nellis.

In fact a heap of them look like being based at RNZAF Ohakea on the North Island of New Zealand,..although I don't know if is all signed off yet.

I guess all that exposure helps?

ok, if you need me to spell it out for you, the connection is sufficiency. and a single platform purchase on the back of a 1 trillion ringgit debt? good luck with that. hence my statement that the rmaf may need to look to the raaf hand me downs since the raaf were indeed benevolent in donating the cac sabres to the rmaf way back when. and after all, wasn't the past government an ace at getting donations?

it helps when you have a whole fg based in the us (mountain home and luke), and yes, you do see quite a fair bit of rsaf birds during the joint exercises (gunfighter/red flag). anyway, keeping my fingers crossed that jcw does the mkm at some point in time. that's a beut!

A lot of Malaysian collectors have asked My Hobby House to the Su-30MKM as its next project.

According to Han, JCW said is not possible with the current mould. That's why the latest from JCW is an Indian Air Force Su-30MK1 instead of a canard Su-30MKI.

OK. I see.

That post as little do with your first post. And the suggestion that I am supposed to infer all of the above from your last effort is ludicrous,...but there you go.

Secondly no one is suggesting the RMAF is looking for hand me downs, certainly not the Minister. If that's how you infer it,.....well in my view that's drawing a long bow.

Thirdly,...the RCAF has only one "air combat" platform and has done so for ages. So the RCAF has very little to compare with the force structure of RMAF. Not to mention their Defence Requirements are quite different. For a start,...even you could see the geo-political differences between East Asia and Canada/NORAD/NATO?? Yes,...there is a difference you think? Your attempted comparison,...is to be frank, hard to fathom.

As you have noted its been a while since the Malaysian Government required second hand aircraft although, for you information the CAC Sabre wasn't the last.

You have gone from a Minister who is publicly informing his electorate of the current sustainment problems of the current RMAF air combat fleets to buying hand me downs because of,...apparently by your thinking, public debt (which wasn't even mentioned in the first post,...I guess it was my fault that I did not infer that either ).

Speaking of which,...as I noted in my original post. I alluded that the Minister appears to be indicating reform. That's what you do when money is tight.

If that's tone you want to take for the future tomcatter,....no worries.

it does look like jcw is the only manu willing to take on lesser known subjects so yeah, i'm hopeful that such a project would be in the pipeline at some point. somehow the livery on the mkm trumps the mki so i'm hoping that gets made first

It will be intriguing to see if any of that release actually end up in India,...and if they sell?

Just out of curiosity, would Indian subjects be popular in Malaysia?

The various canard MKM/MKV/MKx are good looking Flankers; be nice to see at some point and with so many different operators to release I am sure they would recover the costs.

I would love an F-15SG, it’s basically the only Eagle I am interested in picking up...

Tomcatter: the information about availability rates is official and publicly available (eg the German military issues are well publicised, ditto for the Raptor and USMC Bug problems.)

As for the Canadian problems, the fighter procurement process which has lead to their need for our table scrap Bugs (like so much about their military and indeed government) is practically a meme by this point

OK.

At the end of the day,...another different platform such as the F18 won't help. Certainly not in sustainment and I don't even want to think about the training liability.

However, if the RMAF chooses to go to a single platform, then they can purchase second hand aircraft of the same type, (as a financial saving measure) as opposed to buying a brand spanking new platform. The Sukhoi SU-30 MKM is clearly the type that should be considered. Although actually getting the MKM is unlikely.

Of course you then have to sustain it. India is a the largest operator of the SU30. Perhaps they can look to them,...and then they can piggyback on the sustainment piece.

Hand me downs,...…….no.

If that's what you are trying to suggest (its not what you posted),... then fine . If it isn't,...then I have no idea what you are on about? And your reaction to my seeking clarification on your initial post is all about you and not me requiring spelling out,...certainly not from the likes of you.

I almost believe that the delay in procurement is to get as much time and distance from cancelling the F35 to changing their minds and then purchasing it.

I suspect they think that will save them some political pain.

Very nice line up you got there

Yes the reason I would push for a HM Fulcrum would be to avoid fiddly pieces and Calibre level QC issues from JCW.

In addition to domestic barney over F-35, Canadian fighter procurement politics is further clouded by their work share in F-35 manufacturing and ongoing trade disputes with Boeing vs Bombardier: I wouldn’t be surprised were they to announce “F-35 program has solved enough of its issues to reconsider the decision to cancel” (or words to that effect) at some point in the politically expedient future either...

i do wonder whether bombardier has the technical know-how to actually build a fighter if they needn't have to listen to big brother...

I’m sure they could build a colourful trainer or circus schemed light fighter

Wouldn’t even need to last very long given the track record of its primary user

No that's a Gaincorp's Plaaf Su-27UBK and Terebo J-10, UF.

Having the know-how is one thing. But building the planes cheaply or having the volume is another.

I don't think the Canadian can afford to build 195 units of the F-22 like the Americans.

Derp, my bad, yes J-10. Ah so Terebo had a J-10 mould as well.

Actually for a not so popular aircraft, limited schemes and only 1 operator, a few Manus have made a J-10, AVIC, Terebo, Easy Model, Airforce 1 and I think also even Amercom. Might be time HM consider it.

true. but i'm sure big brother will scupper any such plans also.


by the way monsieur klt, hasn't the rmaf retired their fulcrums already? they're still operating their hornets, no? i mean with the strong ties between rmaf-raaf, i'm sure they could strike a deal getting raaf's hornets as a stop gap measure until the economy improves... that is if the american admin doesn't block such an arrangement.

F18D vs F/A 18A HUG.

Australia initially purchased 75 F18s. 25 have already been allocated to the RCAF. Those deliveries are also dependent on the F35 and IOC. Australia also lost,...from memory 4.

That leaves 46 aircraft to man 3 SQNs,...not including 2 OCU. Some,....a undisclosed number are already hanger queens.

Delivery of the F35 commences this Dec,......maybe, to 2 OCU.

RMAF purchased 8 F18Ds. The MIG 29s are only in-service,...as kltower indicated because the MRCA program has been delayed.

Bang for buck,....I am guessing (I reckon its a pretty good guess) the SU30 is the way to go.

Even if, RAAF F18s end up with the RMAF,...how do think they will go sustaining them compared to my option of Indian SU30s??

Well with China under the One Road One Belt strategy giving easy credit, we might get a few squadrons of J-11 or J-16.

Heck we already owed China so much to build the East Coast Rail Link, the gas pipeline and other infra structure, a few more billions $$ to buy their planes should not matter.

Because we owe China so much, China will ensure that we are protected!!!!

Maybe Mr Trump to prevent us from leaning too much towards China will give us their mothballed fighter jets for free.

if mr trump were to ever do that, and assuming you do locate the fighter jets in the middle of the desert, make sure you guys don't lose the ownership papers this time. or have the engines carted away to some cartel thereafter

Our 93 years old prime minister, Dr Mahatir, had famously said we MUDAH LUPA. Meaning we easily forget.

Maybe I can go in to sell the 1:1 scale model.

Jokes aside, what China is doing under the One Road One belt is very smart.

With so much reserves, China could afford to give generous credit. But most of the credit given returns to China, as China supply the material and hardwares.

It also provide jobs for skilled and unskilled labours. So many Chinese have gone to Africa, Asia and the Pacific Island to work on infrastructure projects.

Unfortunately many countries like Sri Lanka and Tonga are now indebted to China.

This one??

https://www.flyingmule.com/products/JC-JCW-72-SU30-005

Pictures of the final product are out. Dare I say,....they are over at MHIII (I await the bile ).

It does look very flash.

I am still curious if it will be popular in Malaysian with its large Indian/Malay population?

And I do wonder if JCWings have managed to get themselves an Indian importer??

Regardless,...its a very very speccy scheme.

When I went to get the missing parts, I also bought a JCW F-14D Tomcatter and a HM Convair F-106A Delta Dart.

Here's where HM finishing is much better than Witty/JCW.

It took me only 5 minutes to snap-in the wheels and bomb assemblies and the pilot of HM F-106.

For the JCW F-14, it took me a few hours to assemble the plane.

I am 65. I needed the help of my daughter to snap in the fiddly parts. In most cases they needed filing to fit into the holes. In between we broke the missiles assembly and rudder and hence needed glueing.

Despite all the trouble, I really like the JCW F-14 because of the weathering effect. HM models are just too pristine, like they just came out fresh from the factory.

I actually think the JCW F-14 Swordsman that is out soon looks better the HM and CalW, my only issue is the nose join, if they could have improved that it would have made a much nicer model at half the price.

Yep that’s why I wish HM do a Fulcrum, to avoid the issues with parts. Plus both JCW and Herpa seem to avoid operations schemes.

I think JCW first rendition of F-14 is quite nice if you mind fiddling with the small parts.
