Academy 1/48 MiG-21 MF Fishbed J, Syrian Air Force, 1982 Lebanon War

This is a pretty good kit which goes together without problems. There’s a bit of a step between the the front and rear fuselage sections that I wished I had paid more attention to. I used Eduard wheels and the AirRes cockpit set. I also tried some tank weathering techniques to add some streaking – I think it adds a bit of realism. Thanks for looking.

  1. Really nice result here, Richard. I like it a lot.

  2. The camouflage is very well made from a painting perspective, since I know nothing about how these MIGs were painted by the Syrian AF. It does look very realistic as a whole, I really like it. Well done!

  3. I like it Richard. Nicely painted.

  4. A really nice build with excellent finish! And the Mig-21 is one of my favorite aircraft of all time.

  6. Agreeing with the above gents completely, Richard.
    An excellent result!
    A beautiful camo, perfectly executed.
    I think the tank weathering method suits this desert style worn camo.
    Well done!
