Mig 17F Angola (1;48 Smer/ Airfix)
Gents and Ladies,
Here is an older kit I did a while back its the 1:48 Smer/ Airifix kit of the Mig 17F.
I used Tom Coopers African Migs as reference for the background info and photos. I drew up the decals for bort numbers and printed them out myself. Wing roundels are a combintaion of paint and decals. Tri-colours on the rudder were painted.
There are alot of versions of artwork for this a/c knocking about which wildly contradict each other so pick one . Indeed a number of photos of the a/c show changes in markings and colours over time so is it correct, dont know. Apparently this a/c ended her days as a wreck at Cuito Cuanavale AB
These were Angolan planes but were flown by the boys from Havana.
Interesting country Angola.
