Okey-dokey...I have had these Blue Rider decals in the files for I cannot remember how long and why, I do not know, because back then building a jet was not on the radar, but I am happy I have them. In terms of when and where...well, we are dealing with Albania under the Hoxha rule, a time where no one knew what the heck was going on inside the borders; a place that had machine-gun pillboxes every 150m on the borders with the guns pointing in! All I know is that these roundels were used post-war and up to 1960. And they used the MIg-15. This would have also been before Hoxha aligned with the Chinese, so it is a Soviet Mig and Albania was still a part of the Warsaw Pact. Support would fizzle out 1961 and formally end in 1968...After that it became a satellite of China...in the middle of Europe! Anyway... I am aware of the rivet issue, having followed a recent build online. I apologize...I cannot remember whose it was. A basic kit but there is some detail and some easily augmented parts. Quite a plain plane...roundels on the upper and lower wing surfaces only. Red 14... --John
