MiG-23MLD ‘Last Flogger’

November 22, 2020 · in Aviation · · 20 · 4.6K

My 'Red 06' represents the last Soviet Flogger in East Germany, which featured 4-color camo and R-73 capability. It belonged to 833 IAP but returned to Russia in May 1992 due to the end of the Cold War. Their MiG-23MLD fleet were equipped with underwing fuel tanks. (For more infomation, please refer to

R. V. Aircraft -98 kit used. Good kit, but don't overestimate - It's not Tamiya, nor Lego. I spent 1 year to detail up this build to meet my own standard. Aftermarket goods used are following; RES-IM, Res/Kit, Eduard, etc.

I hope you enjoy!
