1/48 MiG.-21UM/bis – Croatian Air Force
These are my first two kits I built 3 years ago. Nothing special really, rookie work, no aftermarket parts, no preshading, no postashading, bad weathering and decal silvering, but both planes are in nice and unusual color scheme so I thought I could give it a propper photoshoot and post it here.
Both kits have inaccuracies experienced rivet counters will find
Nr. 165 is UM version by Trumpeter, painted in display red/white squares color scheme.
Nr. 131 is bis version by Eduard (weekend edition) painted in standard CAf two tone grey scheme (after modernization in 2013). Old buckets are still in service (more or less) and waiting to be replaced with something younger.
