Dragon 1/72 Mig-15Bis Ex LR Korea, USAF

Build from the box in the nineties, decals applied by Cutting Edge
paint Xtracolor .

On 21 September 1953 a disenchanted North Korean pilot made a decision that changed his life and American history. Lt No Kum Suk flew a MiG-15bis with the tactical number Red 2057 to the American zone. He was offered $100,000 to defect and he did it.
I finished this kit in the markings the aircraft carried after escape at USAF Okinawa.
