Fujimi's 1/72 scale

MiG-21MF "Lancer"

 


Zvezda's 1/72 scale MiG-29 is available online from Squadron.com

 

Description

 

This is my second Romanian MiG, after the first one by "Sniper". I used a special edition kit released by Fujimi, with the "Lancer" decals in the box.

The MF Fishbed from Fujimi is really a bis and has many accuracy problems, though it looks quite good in panel lines and some details.

I didn't make any serious accuracy modification this time because I just wanted to enjoy the smooth progress of building a easy-made kit this time.

In order to keep nose cone always sharp, I used a stainless needle top to strengthen it.

 



And I added some wiring and detailed structural features on landing gear legs (They are in quite nice molded and it is really worthwhile adding more).

Then I made some rivets on the bird, and the reference is the plan from MiG-21 book by Czech 4+ Publication.

During my building, I obtained a lot of help from many friends in different forums. Without their help, I would not be able to add the accurate antennas on this "Lancer". I must express my appreciation here.

Thank you very much, guys!

 



In addition used a resin seat from Pavla Models. And I remade the little fins on the pitot by Evergreen 0.14mm plastic sheet.

Hope you'll enjoy this "Lancer"!
