This is the KP MiG-21MF with SyH@rt Czech AF splinter camo decals, nice easy build and then about 3 hours to apply the decals.....

Spectacular result Steve. I would have been hitting the eyedrops bottle hard after that one! :hypnotised:.  What's the base colour? Is that pale grey or white?

You have my deep admiration in having the patience to apply those stickies.

 

Well done 👍🏻!

I used Halfords Racking Grey overall, a lot of the splinter camo is in large pieces but it does take a fair bit of work to get some pieces in the right place to match up with the others. I did the decals in three sessions so they had time in between to dry properly and so I didn't go cross eyed. I enjoyed doing it but was glad to get it finished.

Luckily they supply quite a few spares of different shapes so you're right I didn't put them all on..... 😉

Thanks, when it turned up at Fairford I knew I wanted to model it but didn't want to paint all those random shapes! Buying the decal sheet was just a reflex action and has sat with the kit for ages as I thought it was going to be difficult to apply them all. It certainly stands out from the crowd of the usual grey jets!

 

Cheers.

What an eye-catching scheme that is, very nice work.

 

I also really like the backdrop in your photos, really sets the subject off nicely. Is the hangar a kit or scratchbuilt?

It's a card kit and I added some LEDs to give a bit more interest.

I looked at the first picture and thought I was looking at the real aircraft. A double take on the figures set me right. Really well done.

 

The figures are from a model railway shop - pre-painted which works for me!

It wasn't too bad to do, the decals are in a logical order on the sheet which was good, saved hunting around for a certain number etc. The only difficult bit was working out which way round some of them needed to go. It would help if the instruction sheet showed a line around each decal on the 3-view.
