1:72 Matchbox MiG-21PFS Soviet Union

Recommended Posts

The old Matchbox kit of the MiG-21 built in Soviet markings.

 

A very simple kit, but my main problems happened, after it had an encounter with the floor and parts like the undercarriage did not survive it. The undercarriage was not all that strong to start with.

 

Sourced a MiG-21 undercarriage from the spares box.

 

This kit is also lacking missiles, so had some Eduard AA-1 Alkali missiles with pylons handy, part No 672192.

 

Painted overall Tamiya X-11, but a section of wing had to be touched up and despite my best efforts, it came out different to the rest of the paint.

 

Decals are from Linden Hill sheet No LHD72033.

This is a blast from the past! I remember building one of these as a kid. Basic kit but affordable at the time, compared to Hasegawa and all those exotic manufacturers! Good build.
