MIG Graveyard

These images, courtesy, are of abandoned MIG aircraft in fields near Bagram airbase in Afghanistan. Clearly, a diorama challenge for interested modellers.

  1. Hmmmm…

    That is so tempting. Thanks Rob

  2. That would be my kind of diorama!

    Thanks Rob

  3. That headline photo clearly depicts overdone weathering and panel lines. 🙂

  4. It’s the influence of the “Spanish school”, which has now caught on with real aircraft. Life imitating art, or that there vice versa, or something. “For sale, bargain lot of WARPAC aircraft, fixer uppers, gently used, must sell.”
    Is that a two seater MIG 15 UTI I see in photo 3, next to the bust of Vladimir Illich?.

  5. I’m planning on building an SU-15 in a “graveyard” version. I think it would be fun and challenging. Thanks for posting those great pictures.
