Chengdu F-7NM, Namibian Air Force

Recommended Posts

A few pictures of my Chengdu F-7, in the colours of the Namibian Air Force for your perusal.

This is the first model I build in quite a number of years. Also took me more than a year to complete. The model is loosely based on the Academy MiG 21 PF in 1/72 scale. I say loosely, because it involved quite a bit of plastic surgery to bring it to scale. Work in Progress here

Comments and criticism welcome.

And lastly, together with a Fujimi Mig 21 of the Angolan Air Force. that specific MiG 21 was the first of the type to set foot on Namibian soil when it executed a forced landing in the then Northern SWA. The original is now at the SAAF Museum at Zwartkops.

Great to see the bird finally done. I even started drinking Namibian beer during the course of this build.

All that hard work sure paid off - looks great.

Cheers,

Mike

:lol: :lol: :lol: Well, that is one way of boosting export sales! Who said an airforce does not have a positive effect on the economy?

Thanks for the comments everyone!

I've been watching this one develop in WIP and I know a lot of hard work has gone into it.

Pat yourself on the back - it's a cracking result.

As for the unusual topic - I somehow can not seem to get myself to build something mainstream out of the box. The next couple of projects lined up are in this line as well.... Cant wait :-)

Again thanks for the comments.
