Mr. Lin--can you help me with my Chinese, please?

Mr. Lin:

A friend has given me decals to make the following Chinese Mig-15. Can you help me translate the Chinese writing, please?

Mr. Lin
While you are busy translating the writing how about working up a GWS ducted fan MIG. And a ducted fan Sabre as well! Those would be fun!

Sorry that I can not read that simplized Chinese was used only in RED China.

In Taiwan that we use traditional Chinese, some different to that.

Even from my limited knowledge of chinese characters I can tell that these are definitely NOT chinese related characters.

Take a look at www.omniglot.com

My best guess is Bengali (under Syllabic section
, that is India)....

I think it makes sense. India has a large number of
Soviet Migs... known as "flying coffins"...

I heard crash rate is about 2 per month...

Hi:

The insignia are definately Red Chinese.

I learned that the writing on the side are NOT Chinese charaters. The decal manufacturer used imitation characters; apparently there is another decal set where the characters are accurate to the prototype.

Hmm. I am getting tired of those red wings anyway. Myybe I'll make a Russian version with the red stars.... C'est la vie.

Thanks.
