    1/72 - MiG-21 Fishbed by Eduard

    Cannot confirm the crashed no. 6413 (which in aviation-safety.net record of its crash is listed as MF-75), but no. 9611 seems to have the oval panels on the upper surface of its wings. See https://www.airplane-pictures.net/photo/648238/9611-romania-air-force-mikoyan-gurevich-mig-21-lancer-c/ and compare with no. 6824 which clearly is MF-75 https://www.airplane-pictures.net/photo/786418/6824-romania-air-force-mikoyan-gurevich-mig-21-lancer-c/

    Few bits regarding future MF releases and other MiG-21 versions, taken from the current issue of Eduard Info + various posts in Czech forums. MF Royal Class in July, will contain sprues for both "Interceptor" and "Fighter Bomber", ie. both Gorky and Znamya Truda variants. 12 paint schemes. Will also contains some brassins, poster picture and some kind of pin. MF "Fighter Bomber" (Znamya Truda) Profipack in September. 5 paints schemes -- Czech, Slovak, Vietnamese and two others (will be chosen from Soviet/Russian, Egyptian and Iraqi aircraft). During 2019: Weekend editions, first limited edition box -- MF (1/72 version of the 1/48 limited edition kit focused on Czechoslovak/Czech/Slovak Fishbeds). End of 2019: PF + PFM Profipacks R will be done together with PF and PFM (from modelforum.cz) bis/SMT will be made as a separate subproject, in unspecified later time (from modelforum.cz) Regarding F/F-13/UM, the answer was "We will make them one day." (from modelforum.cz)

    More likely molding limits. If you check the break up of the parts, you will find out that it would most likely be very very hard, if not impossible, to mold this area with thinner edge using a regular two part mold. See the picture of the part in sprue of the profipack edition here: https://ipmsnymburk.com/forum/viewtema.php?ID_tema=40149 -- there's also preview of the decals (main sheet printed by Cartograf), PE and instructions for all the schemes included in the PP.

    They most likely used the photo just to illustrate the squadron badge because the close up of the sticker on 4127 doesn't exist. It's a detail of the badge on the nose of UM 3166. Sigh... some people really don't waste any opportunity to bash Eduard.

    If you wait one more month, you will get a profipack with 6 or so decal options, proper PE and all the sprues for about the same price as the "discounted" current limited edition. Not to mention much cheaper overtrees.

    Eduard - leaflet for distributors

    Most likely because their limited edition "MiG-21MF/bis in the Indian service" didn't sell well. It was released in 2012 and I saw it in their stockhouse even three years later, which is not very usual for a limited edition kit. Or at least Eduard limited editon kit

    Mr. Ć ulc gave few more details to the first MF profipack yesterday at modelforum.cz. Exact paint schemes are not yet decided, but included should be one scheme from each of the countries that used MF-75, i.e. Czechoslovakia, GDR, Poland, Bulgaria and Romania plus there is a chance that one of the two Malian specimens will be included too.

    Why not to say Czech MF? Because 1) it wasn't build that way on Czechoslovak request and 2) it was exported to multiple other countries too? If you want to go exotic, two are even rotting at Bamako airbase in Mali. I'm sure appropriate paint schemes will be selected for the profipack release. Somehow I get a feeling from some of the posts in this thread that no matter what the guys in Eduard will do, it will always be wrong for some people.

    Eduard will be releasing two versions of MF, "greys" from Gorky in May and the older version from Znamya Truda at Fall. There were many CAD images showing the differences between them published multiple times already... So no, the first released version won't be usable for Hungarian aircraft, but the Fall one should be.

    There were way more than 20 produced and delivered not only to Czechoslovakia.

    The complete translation: We have a year of hard work on new AZ model kits ahead of us again. We will continue with the Bf-109 line, and we will bring you the last produced version -- version K. We also recommend very good-looking aircraft - Vought Kingfisher, both in version with wheels and floats. We will honour the last year's promise of bringing a range of Cessna aircraft kits - versions 150/152 and 180/185. Very popular reboxes will be joined by a WWII classic - North American B-25J Mitchell based on Italeri moulds.

    The greys are so-called MiG-21MF-75 (izdeliye 63), having similar cockpit layout as bis version and changes to the fuel system, as the Gorky factory was producing bis version at the same time. Gabor, are you really sure about "20 or so"? Other sources speak about 231 MF-75s manufactured in Gorky between 1975 and 1976 for export, not only to Czechloslovakia, but also to other countries like Romania or Bulgaria.

    Profipack with MFs from the Gorky plant should be released in May, profipack with MFs from Znamya Truda some time during Autumn.
