Fantastic Pavol !

 

Would you like sharing more pics about the other two Floggers ?

 

Will you attend the Brno Modelling Show next June? I will be there.

 

Congratulations.

Hi Pavol,

3 models of the same type in the same amazing skill, that sounds like endurance and experienced craftsmanship!

Chapeau!

Guys, thank you very much for your positive reactions! It's a nice reward for me! :)
 
Patrick, yes, it's possible that I will visit the MODELLBRNO and I take all my MiGs. ;)
 
Sarcococca, it's my bad habit to build more of the same kits at once, on the other hand, it saves the time and reduce inventory ... :thumbsup:
 
 
The second shark is MiG-23ML Flogger-G #4645 with period of service from 1982 till 1998 in Czechoslovak/Czech Air Force. This flogger has the unusual shades of camouflage colors, which obtained after revision at the end of its career. Used armament: 2x R-60 (AA-8 Aphid), 1x R-23T + 1x R-23R (AA-7 Apex).

Very nice again this one.

I've got the 23-BN too but my wife prefers the blue/green Cuban scheme so SMBO...
