1/32 Egyptian MiG-21 PFS

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

A kit that I've repainted and continually improved over the last 25 years. This one is the very old Revell 1/32 MiG-21PF. This is the link to Aircraft Resource Center from one of this models past incarnations:


I found out later (from the author of "Arab MiGs" book, Mr. Tom Cooper)that the camouflage scheme that appeared in his book was completely bogus !! I was so very annoyed by this news, that I stripped the paint and decided to reuse the model this time as an Egyptian MiG. I replaced the wider tail-fin with a narrow chord one supplied in the original kit and took the time to fix multiple issues that I had overlooked in the first build. New intakes, details on landing gear and speed brakes and cockpit were all done before this last paint. I actually enjoy the paint and finishing of built models more than the actual build-up. So here it is, an Egyptian Air Force MiG-21PFS sometime around the early 1970s.
