  1. MiG-21SMT 1:48 Eduard - ProfiPACK Edition From its inception in the 1950s the MiG-21 with the NATO reporting name of Fishbed has become the most produced jet fighter in history. With 10645 being produced in the USSR, 194 in Czechoslovakia, and 657 in India. The simple construction and low maintenance costs made the aircraft a favourite of many countries who purchase Eastern Bloc hardware. The SMT was a development of the SM (which brought a uprated engine, built in 20mm canon, and upgraded avionics). The SMT had an increased fuel capacity and is easily distinguished by the larger spine where the fuel tank was. Initially the tank caused stability issues as it disrupted airflow to the tail, however this was resolved by the designers with a slightly smaller tank. The Kit Eduard's MiG-21 range is now pretty much established as a great range of kits. The initial MF version came out in 2011 followed soon after by the SMT. In this boxing there are eight sprues of grey plastic, a clear sprue, two sheets of PE (one coloured), masks, and two sets or resin rocket pods. Construction begins shockingly with the cockpit area. The front wheel well parts are attached to the underside of the cockpit floor. The instrument panel is then made up from five parts plus the PE. The next step is to complete the engine exhaust. The exhaust is made up from 11 parts and looks to be fairly detailed for plastic parts, this is enhanced by a few PE parts as well. Once complete this is set aside for later. The main wheel bay is then constructed from 9 parts, and again this looks fairly comprehensive for plastic parts. Construction then moves back to the cockpit. The side consoles are constructed and placed in the appropriate fuselage halves. Again there are PE parts supplied for this. Once the side consoles are in, the cockpit floor, exhaust assembly, cockpit bulkhead; and nose cone (it is recommended to add weight in here, though the instructions dont mention how much) are all placed indie the fuselage halves and they can be joined together. The nose ring is then added. The large fuselage spine complete with fin can then be added to the fuselage, and the rudder added. This then complete the main fuselage and construction moves onto the wings. The wings are a one part bottom wing with split left/right uppers. If the side airbrakes are to be positioned open then they will have to be cut out from the wing. A variety of small parts are added to the wheel bays, along with the walls of the bays. The main wheels wells can then be added to the fuselage and the lower wing glued into place. The tail planes are added at this stage along with various linkages and intakes in the engine bay area. The upper wings are added next, along with their separate control surfaces. PE wing fences are added. Work then switches to the underside. The main airbrake can be added in either the open or closed position. Flap actuators are added as is the under tail fairing. Work then switches to the undercarriage. The main wheels are built up along with tyres. The front landing leg is also assembled. These are attached along with the main gear doors. Last touches are to complete the ejector seat. This is 19 part affair in plastic! as good as some resin seats I have seen, and with the addition of the PE seat belts should really look the part. A resin seat with the ProfiPACK kit would have been a nice addition though, The canopies and pitot tubes are added and the underwing/belly pods/ordnance can be added. Drop tanks, large rockets, bombs, and air-2-air missiles are provided for the modeller to use as they want on the plastic sprues. In resin there are two sets of rocket pods. Clear Parts The clear parts are up to Eduard's usual standard. Clear and free from distortion. Decals The kit provides one sheet of decals for the main aircraft markings and a larger sheet for the myriad of stencils which adorn the aircraft & weapons. Both are printed in house by Eduard and should pose no problems. As this is a ProfiPACK boxing 5 decal options are provided. MiG-21MT, Serial Number 96.40.14, Dolgoye Ledovo, Russia MiG-21MT, Serial Number 96.40.15, Dolgoye Ledovo, Russia MiG-21SMT, 582 IAP, Chojna Airfield, Poland, Late Eighties MiG-21SMT, Krasnodar Higher Aviation Training Facility, Soviet Union, ca 1980 MiG-21SMT, 296 IAP, Soviet Union Conclusion This is a great kit from Eduard. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  2. Hi. It's time for a new build. As I've stated before I really like Eduards MiG-21's. So much that I'm starting another. This time it'll be a MiG-21bis from Ilmavoimat, The Finnish Airforce. This is what I've got to work with. A MiG-21bis overtree box. url=https://flic.kr/p/ZUmgid][/url]F001 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And some extra details. F002 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Cold War Studios resin nose. F003 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr F004 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr F005 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr A pitot from Master, a must have. I glued the ejectionsseat and a droptank together yesterday when I was waiting for some paint to dry. F006 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr The decals are leftovers from my first MiG-21bis. I did that in a Syrian livery. F007 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Some canopy seal decals from Furball design. F008 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr I'll arm this MiG with 4 R60's infrared missiles and 2 R3R radar missiles, and a 490 liter droptank on the belly. 013 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr I plan to do a speedbuild with this MiG. The plan is to have it done on Finland’s Centenary on December 6th. To be continued..... /Bosse
  3. Dear fellow modelers, Being serial starter, I could not refrain myself from starting new build, this time an excellent Eduard's offering in 1:144 scale. Since I'm a clumsy sod, I've managed to break its left wing, so additional sanding was required. Otherwise fit was good and only minor gaps on vertical stabilizer needed filler: Painted in primer, together with rest of the gang: Base green paint was applied: Then dark green paint was applied (treatment with blue tac): Some minor touches were needed before proceeding: Brown paint was quite challenging to paint, since a lot of masking was required: So, here we are, little Mig is proudly standing on its feet, some touches of paint still needed before drowning it in Future: And that's all for now
  4. Hi folks, My contribution for the GB gallery - my Mig-21bis from Zvezda. Please find a WIP in the overall group build and the finished article photos in the RFI section. Thanks - Kris
  5. Right folks, here goes. I've finally finished this Zvezda Mig-21 for the 70's NATO v Warsaw Pact GB (with a week to spare) and I've got to say I've really enjoyed this build (apart from the poor fit on the undercarriage bays)!! I've also learned a lot - particularly as this one was completed in NMF - something I don't seem to do very often. This is now my third completed jet, following my F-16 and Buccaneer and I'm currently racing to complete the Airfix Vampire for the de Havilland GB. The model was completed OOB with the addition of a scratched pitot tube as the kit piece was ok but not realistic enough. Completed using Revell Aqua acrylics (which I love for airbrushing - so smooth) and a panel line wash and minimal weathering. Hope you enjoy and as always I'd really appreciate any feedback and comments. Kris PS I think I got carried away on the amount of photos, but hey - who's counting?
  6. Minion's therapeutic Mig

    To save me from completely losing the will to live from tackling attempting to turn Hobby Boss' Mi-8 actually into an Mi-8 I have decided to pick up what should (hopefully!) be a nice simple build of one of my favourite aircraft of all time, the Mig-21. I have decided to build an old Academy 1/48 Mig-21PF that I have had for a while as it is a fairly simple kit and (to me at least) looks like the plane its supposed to. The one part of the kit which definitely does need improving on is the cockpit as the kit one if rather basic to say the least, and to that end I have bought a resin replacement by Pavla which should hopefully fit better than their Mi-8 bits, I have given it a test fit and all seems well. Anyway here's the usual box and contents shots. The kit instructions and decals. I am not sure at the moment exactly which scheme to do it in but I will most likely not be using the kit decals, I have a few sets for the Mig-21.... Would you believe there isn't a PF on any of them! Obviously I need more decals! Some of the decals can be used on PF's as the national markings are the same. As I said I have a Pavla cockpit, and here are the various bits. Much more detailed than the kit offering but the instructions on what to remove from the kit are non-existent so I will have to give it my best guess, oh dear! I say I don't know exactly which scheme to do but I am leaning towards an Egyptian one such as either of the schemes below. Probably the bottom one. I know one of the kit options is Egyptian and in a very similar scheme but the national markings look too big to my eye, I'm sure I have some more suitable Egyptian markings somewhere in the stash. Thats it for now, thanks for looking in, and wish me luck! Craig.
  7. Here's my contribution for the 70's NATO v Warsaw Pact GB: It's my second GB of the year so far as I'm currently busying away on the F-16 GB. This seems to be a nicely detailed kit with fine panel lines and some nice cockpit details. So far everything seems to be going together nicely. This is my progress so far: Next job is to work on the nose cone and exhaust and then look to close her up and start bringing everything together. This is my first Russian jet so I'm enjoying the challenge so far - hopefully I can do it some justice.
  8. Hy guys, Recently i took the decison to quit the 48th scale and buy and build only in 72nd scale. But... i have this in my stash (and others things in 48th scale), so i decided to build my last 48th plane (or one of the lasts). And this GB is the right occasion to do it! So, this is my subject: a classic MiG-21MF in bulgarian old style markings. To build it, i will use the Eduard kit: I will build it straight out of box, except for the Linden Hill decals sheet "Brothers in arms". And this my airplane: Before i begin, i have to finish another model in "final circuit". ciao Ale
  9. Long gone Libyans

    A couple (or so) from Mitiga in 2007 .....
  10. Hi fellow modellers, Just in the nick of 2016, I’m able to post these images of my latest completion. It’s the 1:72 Zvezda MiG-21bis built up as an izdelie 75AP in Hungarian Air Force colours in the early half of the 1980s, just before the camouflage pattern was standardised throughout the MiG-21 fleet. I took this kit out of my stash completely contrary to my initial plan, which was to build something Phantom-ish. But I went with it and here it is. After market stuff: Kuivalainen (Eduard) MiG-21bis PE cockpit set, True Detail’s KM-1 seat, and two HAD models decal sheets with MiG-21 stencilling and generic Hungarian markings. I also used a length of copper tubing both as an exhaust can and as a way to forcibly deepen the aft fuselage, to make it more in line with what I saw in pictures. Gaps were filled with plastic and filler. Paints used: Gunze Sangyo Mr Hobby, different colours, all mixed to approximate photographic info. I wanted to reproduce a weathered finish. Especially the green used for the camouflage faded quickly; this is -approximately!- what I was going for: The kit as a kit is fairly nice. Parts fit together quite well, and if I had avoided modifications this would have been a comparably quick build. The plastic too is quite good overall - not too thick which pleased me. Especially the wings and horizontal tail look suitably thin. The wings are molded as one piece and the main gear leg housing is molded in the plastic; which is where the ejector pin marks are located. Filling these is difficult without damaging the surrounding surfaces but the marks can be hidden by overlapping added detail. However I discovered most of the panel lines on the kit were either misplaced or completely fictional; the tail fin in particular being a tableau of criss-crossing lines to nowhere. I always thought later MiG-21’s fins looked fairly distinctive, in part because of the big vertical panels in the centre. Remedy: filling, rescribing. The wheel chock was made with plasticard using the HADmodel PE part as a template. Thanks for looking! Have a nice 2017! Jay
  11. Hi All, I hope you don't mind seeing another Mig-21 completed from Eduard. For me it was a first time trying the NMF on a plastic model. I used Vallejo's metal range paints. (Note: I'm absolutely aware that all Hungarian Mig-21Bis was painted grey, so you can take this model as a "what if" before you start hammering me in the comment section ) Thanks for all improvement comments / recommendations in advance
  12. Modelsvit is to release in December 2016 a limited edition 1/72nd MiG-21F Izdeliye 72 "Fishbed-B" kit - ref.72021 Source: http://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=95825&start=1920 Box art V.P.
  13. I give you one of my favorite aircraft, the colors of the Syrian Air Force. The model is perfect for work and a real pleasure. Enjoy.
  14. Hi Fellow modellers! This time I´ll show you one of my recent builds. It´s the little Zvezda Mig-21 Bis in 1/72. It has Kuivalainen PE, Pavla seat, Master pitot and Lift Here decals (wich are very good). I´ve also added some details in the landing gear. It´s a very nice kit, a little thick on the details but improved a lot with the aftermarkets. It only lacks a nice canopy, It´s too thick and distorted. It represents an airplane flown by cuban pilots for the Angolan Air Force in the 80´s in the conflict with South Africa. I hope you like it and all comments are welcomed! best regards from Uruguay Ignacio

After the Bf.109E-1/E-3 (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234998486-148-messerschmitt-bf109e-1e-3-over-spain-eduard-plastic-by-ak-interactive-released/) and the Spitfire IXc ( http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234998485-148-supermarine-spitfire-mkixc-late-foreign-service-rebox-eduard-by-ak-interactive-released/), AK Interactive is has just reboxed the Eduard "Fishbed" as 1/48th MIG-21PFM "Fisbed-F" Days of Glory and Oblivion - ref.AK148003 Source: http://ak-interactive.com/v2/?product=mig-21-pfm-days-of-glory-and-oblivion V.P.
  16. First the MiG-15: I used Kuivalainen (Eduard) photo-etch for the cockpit. I know there are things that are not 100 % correct, but this was enough for me. Since it was pre-painted, the whole cockpit became a bit too blue. I painted it with Vallejo's new, brilliant metallic colours. Decals are - also brilliant - from SBS Models. The whole build was pretty uncomplicated. Although nothing fits perfectly, it is easy to get a good fit with some trimming of the parts. And over to its successor in Finnish Air Force, the MiG-21UM: Painted with Gunze colours. Decals are a mix from different sheets - the roundels are actually from Eduard's MiG-21bis in 1/144, the old-style large roundels were perfect for modern small ones in 1/48! The lynx is from the MiG-15 sheet. The model has two main problems: The nose and the cockpit. The nose has an avionics bay that can be displayed. However, this is wrong, since it is from MiG-21MF. But when closed, the door does not fit at all, so lots of sanding is required - which also affect the canopy that has to be trimmed to fit. The other issue is the cockpit. Trumpeter have left out the window between the two cockpits. The problem is that even if you can scratch-build it, it will not fit since the whole aft cockpit is too long. My solution was to build the "roll bar" between the cockpits, which also gave me something to glue the (scratched) pin to. Apart from that, this was an enjoyable build. Thanks for watching!
  17. Eduard MiG-21R

    After posting my first build on this forum, I've now got quite a taste for it. So after rummaging through the stash list I ended up with about four choices; 1. Tamiya F-84G 2. AMK L-29 3. Kittyhawk F-35A 4. Airfix Gnat After a while I found that I kept coming back to Eduard's Silver Arrow edition of the MiG-21. I've been slowly adding the missing sprues and etch so that I can build all three versions eventually, and it was whilst doing the original sort out that I realised that there were a couple of important parts missing. These were very kindly replaced by Eduard themselves. So, on with the show. The box top art is carried over onto both instruction booklets. This is the scheme chosen. Just as a side note, could someone please translate the boxes at the top for me. A wild guess, but is the first one the mix for the interior colour? The build has started and the first thing on the agenda was to wash all the sprues in warm, soapy water. This was left to dry over night and then everything was sprayed with Halfords grey primer. Some areas were then assembled such as the cockpit and main wheel well. The cockpit area was then sprayed with MIG.223 Turquoise Green. Then the green areas such as the tail, wheel hubs, recon pod, nose cone and parts of the exhaust area were sprayed Tamiya XF-5. Another first for during a build was adding some rivet detail. I'm hoping this will come into its own at the weathering stage for paint chipping. First impressions of the kit are that its light years ahead of my previous build. This kit just seems to fall together with a lot of the seams just disappearing. And thats before any glue! One thing I'm stuck on though is the colour for the wheel bays. There's nothing mentioned at all in the instructions. I normally use Tamiya XF-23 but I understand things are little different for Czech MiGs. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, and thanks for reading.
  18. So, my cuban fishbed is finished! - Academy kit built oob except for the neomega's pit and the HAD nose and engine cover - painted with Gunze's acryl range (H338 undersurfaces; H320 and H323 for the camo) - decals form Aztec and Afterburner sheets - a lot of fun in building it, my ourth Academy's Fishbed. For the next ones i will use the Eduard new tool... Hope you like it ciao Ale
  19. The first of several Eduard 1/48 MiG-21s I have been working on has now reached the painting stage. It will become a Czech MiG-21MF. I didn't have the right colours in the Xtracolor range, so I had to use Model Master. Paints used were RLM78 for the lower surfaces and FS30117 Military Brown and RLM80 for the upper surfaces. All three colours were painted on top of a black undercoat. Jens
  20. I always liked the blue/green camo of the Cuban MiG's, so i think it's the time to build one of them! I choose the famous "black 665", a Bis Fishbed. just for discussion, source http//makettinfo.hu I have a Eduard box in my stash, by the way i choose to build this Academy, also present in mi "to build pile". It's a godd kit, easy and fun to assemble, this it's my fourth Academy Fishbed! A bit of aftermarket Neomega's pit (i'had originally bought the FM Detail set but it was useless due to a big damage to the tube; i will use the interior canopy detail), Brassin wheels and decals from Aztec Models I'm a lazy modeler, so i will use this for the nose cone and the engine cover! I will post soon some progress! ciao Ale
  21. MIG-21 BIS HUNAF 1/72 R.V.Aircraft
  22. A question for anyone that have ventured into the build of Trumpy's Mongol. Is it just me or does the cockpit tub sit too low and too forward in the fuselage when attached to the stubs in the fuselage. I am thinking of going "Aires" on the tub to fuselage fit, namely sand everything until satisfactory fit is achieved. (parts U5 and U10). Test fitted to the complete tub and the fuselage. Same for the avionics bay details. (Part E2) If fitted where it's supposed to go, the fuselage does not close up, and the panel cover fits (Part E13), while the intake cowl (E19) is too small. if left out, the fuselage closes but the cowl is too large and the avionics panel cover looks like taken from a different kit altogether. Did anyone encounter these things?
  23. MiG-21MF Fishbed - 1:48 Trumpeter

    MiG-21MF Fishbed 1:48 Trumpeter The MiG-21 has probably been produced in greater numbers than any other jet fighter. Over the years they have been many variants. The M in MF stands Modernizirovannyy or Modernised. The F standing for Forsirovannyy or Uprated Engine. In effect the MF was the export version of the MiG-21SM where the S referred to the Sapfir-21/RP-22 radar. As well as an uprated engine an internal 23mm Cannon was provided alongside a considerably updated avionics package. The SM & MF were called the Fishbed-J by NATO. The MF had a greater arsenal of weapons available including the R-60, and later R-60M IR seeking AAM (NATO Name AA-8 Aphid) The Kit It is quite surprising how much plastic Trumpeter manage to get in the smallish box this kit arrives in. There are 10 sprues of grey plastic, a clear sprue, a small sheet of PE and a set of rubber tyres. Construction starts without any surprise in the cockpit area. The ejection seat is built up. This comes as nine parts and builds into a very fair representation of the real thing. The front instrument coaming is built up and the instrument panel added. The ejection seat is added to the cockpit tub, then the sidewalls and rear bulkhead are fitted. The control column is added and the front coaming completes things. Next up the wheel wells are built up. The front well is three parts and you have you add the front wheel/leg at this stage. The main wells are four part affairs and are built now as well. Following this the rear jet pipe is assembled. This has seven parts and again will build up to a good looking representation of the real thing. Once all of these subassemblies are complete they can be added into the main fuselage along with the nose radar bullet and the area in front of the cockpit. Once the main fuselage is closed up various intakes are added to both sides of the rear fuselage. The engine exhaust nozzle can then be made up and added to the main fuselage. The separate one piece vertical fin is then added, along with it's separate rudder. The brake parachute housing can then be added. This is able to be modelled in the pen or closed position. Moving on to the underside of the main fuselage the underside fin is added, along with the internal cannon. The main centre line air brake and two side front airbrakes are added. All the airbrakes can be modelled open. The main gear door on the fuselage are then added along with their retraction struts. The front gear bay doors are also added. A centre line pylon is provided if the modeller intends to use it. This can take either a large or small fuel tanks as supplied in the kit. Construction then moves onto the wings. These are conventional upper/lower parts for each side. The wings are supplied with separate flaps. Two pylons and a landing light are added to each wing. Once the wings are built up they can be attached to the main fuselage. Two PE wing fences are supplied in the kit. The tailplanes are also added at this time. The main landing gear is the next area for the modeller to concentrate on. Two hub parts sandwich the rubber tyres as supplied in the kit (no plastic alternatives are supplied). The prominent brake lines for main gear legs are also supplied. The main gear door which attached to the leg then needs to be fitted, this has to be bent to shape by the modeller. The main gear legs and their retraction struts can then be fitted. The last items to be made up and fitted are the underwing armament. Twin fuel tanks are supplied for each type though I think the large one was only ever fitted on the centre line so the modeller has a spare. References would seem to indicate that if fuel tanks were carried on the wings they were carried on the outer pylons only. UB032 rocket pods are supplied if the modellers wants some air-to-ground weapons. If air-to air is needed then a pair of R-3R and R-3S missiles are included. Markings Here Trumpter have provided markings for six aircraft but provided absolutely NO information about the markings what so ever. The six are; German Democratic Republic Bort #Red 511 USSR Bort #Blue 30 Poland Bort #Grey 6804 Czechoslovakia Bort #Black 8207 Iraqi Air Force - Unknown Aircraft Green/Sand Camo Iraqi Air Force - Unknown Aircraft Brown/Sand Camo Conclusion Whether it's another one to add to your brace of Cold War Soviet metal, or just an impulse buy, there's a lot of plastic in the box, and some nice detail. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of UK Distributors for
