This is the RV Aircraft kit. Although short run it was a pretty straightforward build with no vices. Decals OOB and paint from Vallejo...a mixture of airbrush and then brush when i got tired of all the masking! Mig Ammo panel wash to finish off. Thanks for looking
Hello, after receiving my Eduard #2124 Library Edition of the MIG-21MF, I spent some time comparing it with the RV kits of the MIG-21MF, MFN and bis. As further reference I used «Mikoyan MIG-21», Midland Publishing 2008, ISBN 978 1 85780 257 3 (Reference 1) What puzzles me most are the wing upper surfaces panel lines. RV encloses two versions in their kit, one with a slim panel with rounded edges and one without it. See picture: A with this panel, B without. Eduards MIG-21MF is, according to the kits instructions, a Gorky built aircraft and these MF incorporated modifications from bis aircraft already in production there. Inofficially, MF’s built in Gorky are designated MF-75 and are distinguishable by their 8-digit serial numbers vs. 6 digit serial numbers for aircraft built in Moscow (1). The kit from Eduard has the B wing, so in accordance with (1). RV’s MIG-21 MFN uses the B wing, what makes sense, since the MFN are modified Gorky produced MF’s. Interestingly, RV’s MIG-21 bis instructs to use the A wing, where I awaited a B wing. In my neighbourhood there is a Czech MIG-21MF on display, serial 965210, which is a Moscow built aircraft and has the A wing. I supposed the B wing is for Gorky produced MF’s and bis, all bis except the Indian license production are from Gorky (1). This contradicts with RV’s MIG-21bis instructions. So far I haven’t found a picture of a bis where I can proof which wing it was equipped with. Or has the bis type also two different wings like the MF's? Can anyone help solve this puzzle? Thanks a lot Martin
