One of the many which brought trouble to the UN aircraft…this one with the Chinese insignia…who knows if it had a Russian pilot occasionally…

That’s a great MiG-15, Marcus!
I love all those interesting Chinese camps of the time.
Your camp looks fantastic!

Great build of this MiG, Marcus.
Camouflage is fantastic, may I ask how you did achieve this?
Tks John,free-handed…Tamiya paint,Aztek A470 black-tipped (.3mm) airbrush…

Marcus….super-duper camo job, reflecting great skill and patience with the airbrush. All good.
Thanks Bob,indeed I had to be patient for there are too curves all around…all hte best!

From the research I did for “MiG Alley,” the Chinese MiG-15s were flown by Chinese in their own units, while the Soviets operated in their own units. It’s truly amazing what the Chinese were able to do, when you learn they put a pilot into a MiG-15 and sent him into combat with maybe 150 hours total time. About the time a US pilot had when he was first introduced to a T-33 for 100 hours before even thinking about climbing in an F-86 for another 100 hours training before going to Korea.
The camouflage scheme is amazing. What a great demonstration of airbrushing talent!
Glad to have you here Tom,always claryfing the historical background.Thank very much!
