  3. 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.
  4. This is the Academy Mig-21, Soviet Air Force and & Export boxing and their version of 'Red 1904' from the Sky Hussars Display Team, 1983, though I've tried to depict it as it stands (stood?) at the Szolnok Air Museum in Hungary. The model is slightly fortunate to have made it this far as I had a bit of a mishap yesterday while putting the finishing touches on and dropped it. Luckily, most of the bits that fell off (nose pitot, chin antennas and rear landing gear and their doors were fairly easy to reattach and patch up, the only permanent casualty being the triple chin antennas, replaced with straightened wire and one of the main landing gear struts, which I heard crunch underfoot while looking for the other disconnected bits, so you'll notice one of the linkages isn't present! Other than that, the build went pretty smoothly. The kit is a bit basic when compared to the Eduard Migs, but it goes together well. I added a bit of extra detail to the kit seats, namely a milliput cushion as well as some belts. I also used a spare Eduard decal for the IP. With the canopy closed, accuracy wasn't an absolute priority, so they'll do. The main colour is my own mix of Mr Color Aqueous while the cockpit is a mix of Mr.C's Emerald Green and Tamiya Sky Blue. I chose a Satin finish in the end. Anyway, on to the pics. Please excuse the unpainted underside of the belly pylon - I was going to hang another tank but decided against it for now. I may do so at a later date but for now I just want to move on Thanks for stopping by!
  5. Hello! Here is another my model! In assembeling I used a lot of aftermarket sets. This is the Eduard photo etching from the kit. Eduards rockets R-13 and nozzle. Pilot tube from Master. The gun, all sorts of small air intakes and flaps of the Quickboost. Airintake of the Mini World, Neomegas ejection seat, R-3R rockets and wheels from Reskit. From myself I added only wiring to the nose gear. I painted the model with NATAKA paints. Top colors from the set, the bottom interfered. Weathering - oil dots, pigments and a wash of dark blue on the bottom and dark brown on the top.
  6. Hello my friends. This is my last built: an excellent Eduard Mig-21 MF. This mold is perfect. Easy fittings. I used Tamiya and Mr. Hobby mixes. Out of box. Cheers!
  7. Hi Guys Eduard weekend edition Mig-21MF quick build. That was very good set, no problems during build. Slovak Air Force "agressor" painting scheme. Model painted with Tamiya paints, details with brush Vellejo, Revell and Model Master paints. I use Eduard brassin wheels for main landing gear. Comparison with the Zvezda's Mig-21 1:72 scale model.
  8. I continued with my MIG-21 series. Here is one representative of the Cuban Air Force. So much for me now. Here's the picture, enjoy it.
  9. I was keen on receiving Eduard's new 1/72 MiG-21MF last year and got one as early as I could. 6 weeks and 50000 (not really, but you get the point) decals later, I was done with what I think is the best kit I have ever made.. Its beautifully engineered and has details that would blow your mind, but does make you work hard to achieve the fidelity it deserves. As profiled here before, the Profi-pack boxing comes with a variety of schemes, but I chose to build a MiG that was a true war-horse in the Middle East. Painted in the Znamya Truda camouflage in which several Arab Type-96s were delivered from the Soviet Union, it represents an aircraft of the Syrian Arab Air Force in the days leading up to the Lebanon War when they were outclassed and outgunned by the Israeli Air Force. Not deterred by the daunting challenges, Syrian pilots took the war to the Israelis and made the best use of their versatile and agile MiG-21. SyAAF is a shadow of its former self these days, but continues to be one of the most secretive air arms in the world. Their pilots and their MiG-21s continue to defend the homeland, but the enemy is very very different. If you are a MiG-21 aficionado, look no further than this kit. Parked alongside my old Kopro MF. Incredible how far we have come with MiG-21 kits. [

  12. Here is an Eduard 1:144 Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21SMT "Fishbed K" I built back in 2012. It represents "Red 92", of the 296th IAP, in the Soviet Union. It was built OOB and painted fully with brush. Thanks for looking. All comments welcome. Miguel
  13. After the single seat variants (link & link), Kovozávody Prostějov (KP) is to release a 1/72nd MiG-21UM "Mongol-B" kit - ref. KPM0108 Source: https://www.kovozavody.cz/2018/09/mig-21-um/ Box art V.P.
  14. Hi, All! So, let's go! As they say: "Rrrrrr.......Must crush capitalism! ...Rrrrrrr!"(c): What would you be sure of, the model is not started: As I wrote, in the Ukrainian text on the box and Modelsvit's instructions, both versions indicate how "the USSR Air Force 60's" in the English translation is not! B.R. Serge P.S. Almost Sunday....OK...19 minutes how Monday on my clocks... .....to be continued....
  15. Here is what became the first of a run of 1:144 MiG-21s, mostly from Eduard, that I built back in 2011-2012. This is Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21MF "Fishbed J" 5121, flown by Pham Tuan, of the 921st Fighter Regiment 'Sao Do', Vietnam People's Air Force, during the Vietnam War in the early 1970s. This is the Eduard kit built straight out of the box. It was completely painted by brush. Thanks for looking. Miguel
  16. My latest project. Really nice fit. One of the best version of the machine if you like it a little bit fat ))
  17. Resin Seat for Eduard MiG-21 MF 1:72 Eduard 672197 Eduard's all-new MiG-21MF was one of the most hotly anticipated kits in 1:72 scale for some time. Now it is finally here, we can see that the kit doesn't disappoint. It is both accurate and well detailed and has made a lot of modellers of Warsaw Pact subjects very happy. That's not to say it can't be improved, however, thanks to the possibilities offered by resin replacements for some key components and sub-assemblies. We reviewed a bunch of these a couple of months ago here on BM, but now Eduard have released the resin seat that was previously only available as part of the cockpit set. The seat comprises two resin parts. Detail is crisp and fine and it is beautifully cast. A small fret of photo etched parts is provided and this contains smaller details such as the harnesses and the pull handles. This seat will make an ideal alternative to the more expensive full resin cockpit. While the seat provided with the kit is no slouch when it comes to detail, there is only so much that can be achieved with injection moulded polystyrene. This resin version is a considerable upgrade and is well worth consideration.
  18. 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
  19. Hello everyone thought id put this up as a placeholder. If I get done with my Deuce in a reasonable timeframe i will add this to the Group build. I have a Bilek 1/72 MiG-21 in my stash. Ive been wanting to do all the early MiG jets (15-21) in Polish markings. The kit has the Markings of a Polish Fishbed “D” from 1967. Ive never heard of Bilek but the kit looks very good with nicely scribed lines. Anyone have experience with Bilek? Anything i need to know ? Dennis
  20. Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21MF / Fishbed-J, Pics thanks to Randy Malmstrom who retains the copyright.
  21. This is my (first?) entry for the GB: a red striped soviet MiG-21S. It took part at "Operation Danube", the warsaw pact invasion of the Czechoslovakia. For the kit, i will use the little gem from Eduard. I have already built the kit and i really enjoyed it. So, let's start with another. I will build the "Red 01". Hope to start soon the work on this kit! ciao Ale
  22. Hello friends, we continue the edition MIG-21 Around The World. Now he is a representative of the Iraqi Air Force. Here's the picture, enjoy it.
  23. My edition of the MIG-21 aircraft in the colors of all the countries that used them continues. I present to you the MIG-21 MF of the Cambodian Air Force. Here's the picture.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
