Mig-15, Tamiya 1/48

October 17, 2017 · in Aviation · · 25 Comments

This Mig model is supposed to be an older idle machine somewhere on the edge of the airport somewhere in Russia.

The model is without accessories and I built it as a test of metallic colors and riveting.

  20. Absolutely superb.
