MiG-21MF 'Fishbed-J'; Yugoslav Air Force

October 28, 2021 · in Aviation · · 22 · 2.4K

Well known 1:48 kit OOB with Balkan Model decals. Commision build for an ex-21 driver and the number was his wish (101 was in fact a bis number in YuAF).

Unfortunately this is my first aircraft model this year. I only managed to build and paint a few Warhammer figures in between. But after the stresfull year at work (I have become an ATC approach controller!), the modelling pace is slowly picking up. Not entirely satisfied with the build, but it turned out quite OK in the end, I think?

  1. Beautiful work. I always love seeing Soviet cold war aircraft with NATO weapons.

  2. Looks great, Sebastijan. Welcome back! Your different panel tones are spot on. Noticeable but not overdone.

  3. Whats not to like? It's a great looking model. Nice natural metal finish. I hope your client liked it.

  4. Turned out wonderfully, Sebastijan!,
    Amazing NMF and multi-shade paneling, among others!

  5. An Eduard Mig 21 - lovely kit
    Super job Sebastijan - I would be delighted with it on my shelf !

  6. Now there is something to write home about. Its a Goldilocks build " Just right " shows the best features of the kit with some excellent natural metal paint.

    Two thumbs up, Sebastijan.

  7. A great build, Sebastijan @inflames
    I would be very satisfied if my builds turn out this way.
    Really love it.

  8. It looks more than OK, great job!

  9. Very nice - the NMF work looks great! Well done.

  10. Well done, Sebastijan (@inflames). NMF is flawless. Great choice on the markings, Yugoslav markings are not seen very often.
