Revell, MiG-21 FL 1:48 Indian Air Force


Recommended Posts

Revell, (MiG-21PF), built here is the FL 1:48 . This is a very old kit with raised panel lines, which I sanded down and scribed. Roundel and fin flash decals are from the kit, but the Sqn. Logo, 52 and serial numbers are self made decals. The shark mouth is hand painted. Also used hair spray technique for fading and chipping. Paints used are AK Extreme Metal. The FL was manufactured by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited till the end of 1973, this model depicts a aircraft from The Sharks, No 52 Squadron, Indian Air Force. The Sharks were used in MiG Operational Fighter Training. They were deactivated in June 2005.

very nice model!

the kit is nearly old as the plane I guess!

hard to believe they were used until 2005....when severely lacking already in 73! the FL is after all something in between the PF and the PFM....still without gun capability etc.....
