What's A Mock Up?

Sat Jun 17, 2006 3:48 am

Today I caught sight of ZJ927 on only it's second test run. There are no shots of it on here yet.



I put it down as Military and manufacturers paint. Is this correct? And when I looked for BAe Systems under the owner it came back with BAe Systems Flight Systems - is that correct?   Then I was given the option of choosing F2 or F2 mock-up. Which one is it?

I would say that " mock-up" is a model. i.e not a flying machine
Also I'm intrigued as to why you have cropped a wing tip off

It's a nice shot, I'd be proud to have caught that one.

It's definately not "MANUFACTURER_PAINT" - that is for schemes such as that seen on the A380 at the recent air shows, or the BAe scheme shown on the 146 when they were first developed - i.e. huge titles and colours depicting the manufaturer's identity.

Bare carbon-fibre, therefore, is not "MANUFACTUER_PAINT".

Since it carries a military reg (serial) and full Royal Air Force markings, it should be uploaded as "UK - Air Force" and the only category should be "MILITARY".

ZJ927 is a Eurofighter Typhoon F.2 with a cn of BS018.

Thanks TZ.
I'll delete it and re-upload. I know the cn is BS018 so I'll fill that in manually if that's ok. I'll just put it as Military then.  

Actually I prefer this shot but it will probably get a motive rejection wouldn't it?
