  3. Another completed model. One of my favorite planes. I plan to one day make MIG-21 in the colors of all the countries that used them. This is the fourth, and there will be more. Here's the picture, enjoy it.
  4. Trumpeter has just announced the release of a 1/48th MiG-21F-13/ J-7 (I&II) "Fishbed-C" kit. Sprue pictures are in IPMS Philippines homepage. You know what? I'm happy. Source with several sprue pics: http://ipmsphilippin...148-mig-21f-13/ Also of interest is what Alex Sidharta writes on ARC Forum: Why two different fuselage sprues? The J-7 & J-7I versions are obviously programmed, see tail parachute housing at the base of the rudder. And J-7 II versions too - see two parts canopy and the two types of tail cones. V.P.
  5. Kovozávody Prostějov is to release 1/72nd MiG-21BIS "Fishbed-L/N" or type 75 variant kits. First boxing - ref. KPM0100 - MiG-21BIS "Fishbed-L" Sources: https://www.kovozavody.cz/produkt/mig-21-bis/ V.P.

  8. Hi all, Renamed thread (16th Feb 2018) Seeking a bit of advice. I am embarking on a number of MIG-21 builds - two underway - and at some point will tackle the MIG-21bis. I have two in my stash, from RV and Zvezda. Which is regarded as the better of the two? To me the Zvezda looks the better one but I'm open to your thoughts. Thanks. Martin

    Converting Mig-21R to Mig-21RF

    In a current modelling magazine I noticed that KP have released a new Mig-21R. What do I have to do to convert it to a Mig-21RF? Alternatively, has anyone made the R.V.Aircraft 1/72 Mig-21RF? I have exhaused my reference material. I know Egypt was the sole importer of this lesser-known version. Thank you in anticipation
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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

    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.
  15. 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?
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Gentlemen... The model I present is a SFR Yugoslav MiG-21PFM in experimental (RAF) camouflage back in the '70s. Kit is an Eduard weekend edition built OOB with the exception of decals. please check my blog for more info and photos: http://militaryaviation148.blogspot.com/ thanks for looking in.

  21. Finnish MiG-21Bis Fishbed-N Pics thanks to Bootneck Mike.
  22. 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
  23. Source: http://www.hannants.co.uk/product/EDK8238 After the MiG-21MF/SMT/BIS/PFM etc. Eduard is to release a ProfiPACK edition from the recce MiG-21R "Fishbed-H" - ref. EDK8238. Release is expected in December 2013. V.P.
  24. 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
  25. 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.
