Eduard MiG 21 MFN 1/48 Czech Air Force

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!
