MiG GB – MiG-21MF ‘Fishbed-J’, a special kind of Czech
There’s not much point discussing Eduard’s 1:72 line of MiG-21s – excellent kits, decently priced and with overwhelming details. The only thing I did to improve the looks, was to sand the intake ring from the inside, which gives a much more accurate overall look, compared to the rather fat lipped one out of the box. For more info on the kit, check my first MiG-21 article: https://imodeler.com/2018/05/mig-21mf-fishbed-j-eduard-172/
Camouflage was achieved using the Syhart Decals sheet. Those are not specified for any particular kit, but I found the fit surprisingly good with just a little bit of trimming required here and there. There’s plenty of spare decals provided, too. I would go with masking, though, if I’d do another one.
All in all, a nice looking MiG for my display cabinet and a fitting first finished build for MiG Group Build.
