1:72 Lift Here MiG-21UM Mongol B Somalia

Recommended Posts

The 1:72 Lift Here kit of the MiG-21UM Mongol B built in Somali markings. This kit is the Condor/Eastern Express MiG-21UM reboxed by Lift Here with some resin and etched parts and a large decal sheet.


Build posed a few little challenges as parts showed that the mould must be nearly worn out as round parts weren't exactly round etc.

Started out painting it grey until I found out they weren't but a dull silver colour, but that was after I had attached the wheels etc. Had to take those bits off before repainting.


Now overall Tamiya XF-16 flat aluminium.


No problems with the kit decals.
