MiG-21MF & MiG-21MFN Fishbed-, RV Aircraft 1/72


Recommended Posts

A few weeks ago I began to build a new pair of MiG-21 from R.V.Aircraft.I chose the classical version MiG-21MF (HI TECH box) and Czech modernized MiG-21MFN.

Currently both models are after the airbrushing camouflages.

MiG-21MFN: The camouflage is done using Gunze H.308. I sprayed the fading using mixture 2:1 Tamiya XF-2:XF-19. Finally I applied heavily thinned color mix 2:1 Gunze H.45:Tamiya XF-2 to achieve a bluish tint.

MiG-21MF was airbrushed in a similar procedure.

Nice work Pavol. Both kits look very good and that decal sheet is quite something! Shame the kit is so expensive here :(

Hello,

status after the applying of decals. The stencils are from the Eduard D72004 decal sheet. The marking of version MF is collected from the decal sheet "MiG-21 in Czechoslovak, Czech and Slovak Air Service" decal sheet designed by Mr. Marcel Kunec.

Thank you guys!

Viasistina, from my point of view are RV kits the best MiG-21 in 1/72 scale for the MF version. Zvezda kit is the best choice for the bis verisons. But I hope that RV will release the bis version in 2014.

What do I really like is the amount of released versions based on MF: MF, MFN, SM, MA, R.

Now I'm thinking about my future project MiG-21R :) The new kit MiG-21R contains the color PE cockpit, masks for clear parts and the resin parts for upgrade of basic MF version to R version.
