Eduard MiG 21 MFN 1/48 Czech Air Force

June 11, 2021 · in Aviation · · 22 · 2.2K

Hi there,

This my recente project, one of those very nice Migs 21. Used canopy masks, interior PE and metal pitot tube. No issues at all and, despite being a little bit worried about the "tiger stripes" decals, they turned out great. Very thin and went well with Mr Softer.

These aircraft had this commemorative painting only for a relatively short period of time, so I decided to weather just enough to show the dirt that comes from normal flying, i.e., didn't degraded the paint to have too many scratches and/or chipping.

Hope you enjoy!
