alberto49 Posted March 21, 2021 Share Posted March 21, 2021 Some time after I built my Phantom model, I thought it was a good idea to build one bird from the other side and I started my MIG-21 project. A little bit of history taken from: “MiG 21 units of the Vietnam War” January 2, 1967, in the skys over Noi Bai, Nord-Vietnam, at least five MiG-21 succumbed to the fire from 8th TFW Phantoms leaded by major Robin Olds. This unexpected loss was a terrible blow for the NVA 921 Fighter Group, including future NVA aces Vu Ngoc Dinh and Nguyen Van Coc who survived ejecting themselves. Speaking of the model itself, in addition to the Trumpeter kit, I used: True Detail Seat, Print Scale decals, Begemot stencils and Eduard Brassin AIM-9B to replicate AA-2-Atoll missiles. These are a few photos of the complete model and some from the w.i.p. 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
