  1. Wolfpack Design is to rebox the Academy 1/48th Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21PF "Fishbed-D" kit - WP14819 Source: https://www.wolfpack-d.com/htm/kit.html# One day here: http://www.wolfpack-d.com/catalog/htm/wp14819.html V.P.

  3. Hello to all of you.I have just finished my 1:72 R.V.Aircraft MiG-21 UM of the Serbian Air Force.I hae upgraded the cockpit a bit and finished the model with Mr.hobby and Mr.color paints.The decals came from LIft Here decals and I am quite pleased how it turned out.I hope you will like it as well. Regards,Dragan
  4. Hello! After recently finishing my gannet I decided to finish another "purgatory shelf" model (what I call my shelf of doom/old WIPs). The Eduard MiG-21 is a lovely kit, I just lost interest in it for a while. During the Summer Holidays I finally had a chance to go back home to Hungary again (after three years!) and I visited the Szolnok Reptár Aerospace museum. It was brilliant. Being up close and personal with all these aircraft inspired me to finally go back and finish my MiG and I must say I am very pleased with the result! Without further ado, here she is; In the end I ended up having a lot of fun with this model and the aftermarket decals by HADmodels behaved well. Only issue was the stencils were misnumbered and I had to do most of it by eye, I can still definitely recommend it though if you have good reference photos (which I did because of my museum visit ). I hope you all enjoyed looking at this and thank you for looking. Next up (probably): Trumpy 1:72 Westland Wyvern
  5. Hi all, had nothing small and simple enough to knock together in 24 hours that I hadn't already started so had to raid my dads stash for his Academy MiG-21. Nice, simple kit- comes with Finnish decals but since its just a MiG-21F-13 I may use some spare decals and do it in an East German scheme, maybe even a Vietnamese or Chinese scheme as a J-7. Looking forward to taking part in my first Blitzbuild weekend. Thanks for looking in!
  6. After the single seat variants (link & link), Kovozávody Prostějov (KP) is to release a 1/72nd Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21UM "Mongol-B" kit - ref. KPM0108 Source: https://www.kovozavody.cz/2018/09/mig-21-um/ Box art V.P.
  7. 1/72 - MiG-21 Fishbed family project was finally officially confirmed by Eduard http://www.eduard.com/store/out/media/InfoEduard/archive/2015/info-eduard-2015-01CZ.pdf (english version soon) MF, bis and SMT versions expected first
  8. Hello Everyone please feel free to post photo’s of any previous MiG-21 builds. You may include All variants of the basic design.
  9. So the first of my pair of entries is this: I've never built a Zvezda kit but they are Russian and it comes officially licenced too (according to the box). The box is a top sleeve over a sturdy top opening cardboard box, inside there's the following: The kit comes with a stand (nice addition), a pilot figure - always a gripe of mine that for the amount of plastic a lot of manufacturers don't include one. Instruction booklet seems clear enough, in black and white and show options for having the undercarriage up or down (nice, I like to do up). The decals are quite sparse - though I really don't mind as I find placing 100s of stencils on aircraft rather tedious - options for a few aircraft, I think I'll go with the Polish version as I want to try doing a NMF. I have some aftermarket paint masks from Eduard but other than that I plan on just doing it straight OOB. More to follow, once I actually get to make a start on it - the PBY5a Catalina is taking up a lot of workbench space at the moment.
  10. For this, my first group build, I'm going to build the 1:72 Eduard models MiG-21MF in Indian Air Force colours. I've got the Bunny Fighter Club version of the kit, BFC094, which comes with some extra resin and photoetched parts, but otherwise looks much like the Eduard MiG-21MF Interceptor Profipack (70141) reviewed here: I'm basing this on a couple of images of C1500, which is aluminium with red and white stripes on the tail. Source: https://www.bharat-rakshak.com/IAF/Galleries/Aircraft/Vintage/Fighters/MiG21M/MiG-21r.jpg.html I want to try a couple of things for this build: firstly I'm relatively new to airbrushing and want to use this to try out the AK xtreme metal paints (although I've got chrome rather than aluminium - hopefully the difference won't be too huge!); the other thing I want to try (and this may be a non-starter, I would welcome any thoughts) is laser printing tail stripes as a decal using a sheet of Clear Laser from TransOurDream Tru-Waterslide Decal Paper. Other markings will be from the box or from Caracal Models markings (CD48156) for an Indian Dassault Rafale, which were the closest I could find. I've started on the decal - to work out the size I need to print I'm using the following steps: - tape the fuselage halves and tail together - press kitchen foil onto the tail to get a sense for how much longer the shape will need to be to account for the curvature of the body - mark the foil, smooth it out and then cut out the foil shape - scan the foil shape and import into MS Word - trace the outline with line segment to get an outline - overlay this on a scan of the instructions, and resize this image to scale - clean up the image to merge the best of both of these images - add red and white lines Hopefully I'm doing this right!
  11. Hello everyone I've just finished the Eduard 1/48 Mig 21 MFN the Czech version. It was a remarkable kit which cost £20! It went together extremely well, no filler was used and the surface detail is excellent. I can't recommend this kit enough for the price. It was made OOB no extras although in the box you get enough weapons and canopies that you could make probably any variant you wanted if you know all the different antennas etc.i painted this with acrylic. Started with a black base then followed with mottled blue, brown and grey then finally a light coat of pale blue to tie it all together and leave a weathered appearance on the paint. It's supposed to be light grey with a dark grey intake but I like the steel look better. The decals took two days to complete as there are so so many stencils I actually googled Czech Mig-21s to see if the stencils were perhaps less obvious but no they were all there in every photo so I stuck with it and I'm glad I did. This build took 2 weeks start to finish as it's not big but most importantly it's well engineered in terms of construction and fit so it was a breeze so much so that I have ordered another weekend edition of the BIS which I never really do as I tend to not build the same plane twice. Anyway enough of what sounds like me advertising for Eduard! Here's the photo's enjoy! Weathering was done with black and brown pigments and then sealed in with a matt coat which still retained a satin appearance. The seat in the weekend version doesn't have any belts so I just made them from tape that's the only thing I added I was going to add canopy seals but there were none and I didn't fancy painting those on or ordering them. I'm happy with the result without.
  12. Hello Guys.I hope you are all doing well.I have finished this mig several days ago.It is the old Zvezda MiG-21 PFM.An old kit that still builts up pretty well.I have added a resin km1m seat and the rest is oob.I had to spray pain the markings because I could not find decals for this one.Paints used are gunze and tamiya and the varnishes are vallejo and AK. regards,Dragan
  13. Hello Everyone... Welcome to the MiG-21 Single type group build of 2022. This World Famous aircraft has Multiple users, sixty plus years in service, and a boat load of Camouflage options to choose from. So as for what exactly is eligible please see #3 below. 1) A 'WiP' thread for each model with regular updates showing your progress within the GB timescale is required. 2) All scales, mediums, aftermarket, and other goodies will be allowed. 3) This is “THE” list to go by. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Mikoyan-Gurevich_MiG-21_variants This includes all known manufacturers from Russia, China, Eastern Block, and Indian. 4) WHIF’s - Now as for the question of WHIF’s. I will allow a Whif on the basis of mockups. No paper projects. It should have had at least a 3d physical model for it to be acceptable. Whif’s based on non-users of MiG-21’s might be acceptable. The operator (Air Arm) in question should have at least operated some form of Soviet jet prior to and possibly post the Mig-21’s usage. Thus making it a plausible expectation. 5) Please keep comments within these threads civil & respectful. If you can't be nice then please be quiet. 6) If anyone has any issues please bring it to me or Modelling Minion (Craig’s) Attention. If this fails Enzo Matrix or another Moderator will get involved. 7) A gallery is available for the display of models completed within the GB timescale. Please limit the number of photos to five for each subject. There is also an inspiration gallery for the display of previous builds. 8. There will be absolutely No Buying, Selling, or trading in the threads. There are dedicated locations for this. Positively no exceptions ! 9) Please do not hesitate to ask questions about anything either myself or my co host @modelling minion will try to get you an answer as soon as we can. 10) Last but definitely not least, Please have fun finishing is nice but is not important. We want you to enjoy your time here in the group build. After all this supposed to be a hobby. Thank you the Hosts and Moderators.
  14. Just off bench the revell mig-21smt or should I say the eduard mig-21smt in a revell box as all the frames are stamped eduard. Firstly the good, it was a dream to build everything except one section fitting together perfectly, very little filler, beautiful detail and options. The not so good, had issues with the cockpit seat being too high so the canopy didn’t sit down resulting in having to sand the base of the seat down flat and then some, and some of the decals silvered although that might be me not allowing time to dry fully in the damp and cold of winter. And a word of warning if a brush painter like me, the panel lines are a little shallow in places so the paint filled them up a little too much in places under some paints. If this was my first eduard and if this is what they are all like I’m very tempted to get another mig-21 for a classic grey or bare metal finish. As always comments and advice for future builds gratefully received.
  15. Hi All I'll be back in the world of building again in a few weeks and am looking at new projects and quite fancy doing the Croatian AF 2 seat Mig-21 with the red/white chequered pattern. Which is the best quality kit? I'm planning to use the Begemot decals... Many thanks in advance!
  16. Hi all, been cracking at this whilst my account was being approved. I’m building the Cuban 111 Livery of this Soviet Icon.
  17. Just putting out a feeler for information about the specfics needed to get an Indian MiG-21M. My gut tells me it can come from the MF or M kits (Eduard). Am I right? As always, your input will be invaluable. Martin

  19. Hi guys, I'm already planing a MiG-21 multi build and got Eduard's SPS-141 ECM pod. After all Czechoslovakian MiGs looking good, but I will have already some. So which country was or is using this pod on it's MF. I saw East Germany on a Bis. Did MF's carry them, too? Any other users ? Thanks for help.
  20. A 1/48 Bulgarian MiG-21bis to be built from the exceedingly nice Eduard kit with a suitable interceptor loadout. I have seen a variety of explanations for the "bis" - latin for "second", or other interpretations like "again", "encore", "another" and the list goes on, but the title of "Another MiG" is perfect for the "bis" with other MiG builds in this GB. Also, seeing I am currently in Bulgaria a local subject seemed an ideal fit. Suitably motivated by images like this: And this great little video: I am into it; So first step, some excellent box art, it is some of the best I have seen, a beautiful rendition of a MiG-21 in zero visibility. Sorry, I was getting excited with this build and just had to do the typical un-boxing where the reviewer always says "excellent box art". I know you have guessed it already - Eduard Overtrees: And a box full of plastic. I want to have some fun in the cockpit so thought I would blow the money I saved on overtrees with some upgrades. I just love that fidelity in jet turbines upgrades so hopefully I can also do this justice. And for overkill went with the "Look" panel The MiG-21bis has that deeper spine and a slightly reshaped nose. Eduard did not reshape the nose from their MF version and, yes, the variation is only fractions of a millimetre in 1/48, but once you see it you cannot unsee it. A modeller's curse for some of us. However, there is a correction kit from Cold War Studios and these guys are right here in Bulgaria. Within 24 hours I had the following and with a lovely embroidered patch included. Lucky me. Castings look good. I will be building a subject with the tri-color weathered upper camouflage. I have plenty of decals and more on order. Final subject is still to be chosen. Looking forward to this build. My first MiG-21, but I suspect not the last. First build images very soon. Ray
  21. Hello my friends.I present you my latest finished model.A mig-21 I built as a present for a friend of mine.The kit represents an ex Iraqi mig-21bis stuck in Yugoslavia when the desert strom 1 broke out.Around 1991-1992 it was flown with our national insignia.According to all the available reference material the weathering had to be at a minimum and the paintjob was brand new so that is why I coated it in semiglos varnish. Enjoy the photos
  22. Hello to all of you guys and girls on this forum.I present you my East German MiG-21f13.I built it OOB with the exception of the homemade seatbelts and the missiles and rails that came from the spares box.I used gunze and tamiya paints on this one.Enjoy it. https://youtu.be/r-jGsZITjSE
  23. VPAF MiG's, Part 5: MiG-21F-13 'Fishbed-C' (Modelsvit 1:72) MiG-21F-13 'Fishbed-C', '4426', pilot Nguyen Nhat Chieu, 921st FR, Kep, 29 October 1967 According to VPAF records, Nguyen Nhat Chieu was flying '4426' on 29 October 1967 when he shot down an F-4 - his sixth kill. US records do not verify this. Couldn't help myself - I just received this and it looked so interesting that I had to put it up here too. I'm getting bit crowded already for the rest of the year but oh well.... what's better than four migs, right? Five of course. Decent amount of stuff in the box - no aftermarket stuff in this photo apart from the couple Print Scale numbers. Kit plastic is bit of a mixed bag - sure it has some flash and stuff, but looks like the details are there, just needs some prep work. Lots of plastic, lots of small parts. Altough the kit itself might not be as refined as Eduard for example, there is still sense of quality with the kit - including the manual. Decals. Print Scale numbers on the bottom - I will be mixing the two to create '4426'. Some PE parts are included with the kit. Interesting looking scheme. And like with all my VPAF MiG builds - these are my reference books. My other MiG's: VPAF MiG's, Part 1: MiG-17 'Fresco-A' (Zvezda 1:72) VPAF MiG's, Part 2: MiG-17PF 'Fresco-D' (AZ Model 1:72) VPAF MiG's, Part 3: MiG-21PFL 'Fishbed-D' (Eduard 1:72) VPAF MiG's, Part 4: MiG-19S 'Farmer-C' (KP 1:72)
  24. VPAF MiG-21PFL 'Fishbed-D', '4127', pilot Dong Van Song, 921st FR, Noi Bai, 1966 Dong Van Song flew this plane often on the first part of 1966 - and two kills were confirmed by Noi Bai pilots with this airframe. On july 14th 1966 '4127' was shot down by F-4C (flown by Capt W J Swendner and 1Lt D A Buttell) using an Aim-9B missile. Pilot Ta Van Thanh was killed as the plane disintegrated over Hanoi, while he was chasing F-105s. - - - - - - Kit: Eduard MiG-21PF ProfiPack Edition (#70143) Scale: 1/72 Aftermarket: Master pitot tube, Print Scale decals.

  25. VPAF MiG's, Part 3: MiG-21PFL 'Fishbed-D' (Eduard 1:72) MiG-21PFL 'Fishbed-D', '4127', pilot Dong Van Song, 921st FR, Noi Bai, 1966 Dong Van Song flew this plane often on the first part of 1966 - and two kills were confirmed by Noi Bai pilots with this airframe. On july 14th 1966 '4127' was shot down by F-4C (flown by Capt W J Swendner and 1Lt D A Buttell) using an Aim-9B missile. Pilot Ta Van Thanh was killed as the plane disintegrated over Hanoi, while he was chasing F-105s. The kit, new Eduard Profipack edition of the MiG-21PF. To my knowledge, difference between PF and PFL was just some of the equipment, PFL had some Vietnam specific stuff. So model wise, they should be identical (correct me if I am wrong). What's in the kit. Being a Profipack, contents are already pretty good with the canopy masks and color PE set (not to mention high quality Eduard plastic parts in the first place) - but I'm using some aftermarket in the form of decals by Print Scale. Some of the details. Really nice kit, the Eduard MiG-21. I've built MiG-21MF earlier and is one of my favourite kits. Kit comes with North Vietnamese decals, but I chose something else. I found this from Osprey's 'MiG-21 Aces of the Vietnam War' by Istvan Toperczer - looks to be some hastily applied camo job over metal finish. I'm using the numbers from Print Scale sheet - but the insignia from Eduard, as the Print Scale insignia is just way off shape wise. And yeah, the number is '4721' and not '4127' - but it's easy enough to change the place of the numbers BTW has anyone knowledge about the insignia on the wings - whether VPAF MiG's had them or not? I remember reading somewhere that they were not necessarily used, especially not on camo'ed aircraft?
