African MiG-17F "Fresco C" x2

Recommended Posts

Hello! Here are a pair of Attack 1:144 Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-17Fs ("Fresco C") which I built back in 2014 using a Berna Decals sheet (MiG-17 African Air Forces Pt.1) to represent a couple of rarely seen African countries.

I built both kits mostly OOB, without adding any cockpit. I only thinned the guns, added the wing probes from metal wire and added the sway braces for the underwing drop tanks. I also added the radio mast.

Both were fully painted and varnished by brush.

 

First up: "Red 43" of the Guinea-Bissau Air Force seen at Bissau IAP in 1991.

Nice those, I do particularly like the BF bird,  that colour scheme suits them.

Nicely done.  We seem to have a dearth of African Migs here and these two are a good start for an antidote.

Thank you very much Steve and John

Within my collection of kits I have a sub-collection where I am trying to represent as many countries as possible through, mainly, military aircraft. It was within this framework that I built these two. Some of the kits and/or decals I buy are just for this purpose! It does offer variety in schemes and/or markings.
