Top Gun ‘MiG-28’ (F-5E), Airfix 1/72
Here is a quick post of the 'MiG-28' from the 1986 Top Gun Movie Airfix kit A00502
With 'Top Gun: Maverick' expected release some time this year, Airfix did a re-release of this kit from the original 1987 kit.
After I posted my last build of the T-38, my sons good friend kept whining about wanting a MiG-28, so that was the reason for the build as it's a present for his 26th Birthday coming up.
So, enjoy Jake and Happy BDay - and quit griping or else I need to get you some cheese if I hear any more 'whining'!
Since the Maple Leafs just got knocked out of the NHL Playoffs and hockey season is over in Toronto, I used another Hockey Puck for the mounting base with a metal coat hanger which I sanded down.
Found an appropriate logo on-line and copied onto a sticky shipping label. The base was sprayed with Future.
Went to together pretty quick, but nothing to write home about this kit as it looks like the only thing they changed since the '87 release was the box art.
Painted with X-18 and finished in Micro Satin.
