  1. A real beauty Allan! Didn't The Hasagawa kit have the later radar nose?

  2. Never met a MiG I didn’t like - (expect the MiG-19 ugh). Perfect colour on a great looking model Allan.

    • Thanks George, I don't have a kit yet but this is the subject !

      • Nice scheme Allan. I’ll make an exception to that MiG-19 because we can classify it as an F-6 ?
        Do you have a kit in mind?

        • maybe a new tool KP. This recently acquired !

  3. Great build, Allan.
    That paintwork looks very uniforme, well done.

  4. A beautifully built "Fresco", finished as an Aerobatic bird: I love it!

  5. Once again we get treated with a very nice build from the @kalamazoo stables. Well done Allan.

  6. Top choice of colour scheme Allan.

  7. Great colour scheme, masterfully applied, but isn't a bit late for the MiG GB? I wasn't allowed to join because I was just one day late (through no fault of my own).

  8. That is a bright, shiny MiG! Nicely done.

    A very nice job on this model Allan, love the sheen.
