Angolan Air Force MiG 21PFM, Academy 1/48

Postby _BlackHawk_ » Mon May 13, 2019 3:04 pm

The Academy kit in 1/48 is still a nice model and is a good cheaper alternative to the new Eduard model. It comes with several options for AAM's and unguided rocket pods, but no bombs. I pinched some FAB 250's from the Kitty Hawk Su 22. Decals for the nose came from Crosswind Hobbies and the find flash was painted. I was unsure if the aircraft carried any wing insignia, but as I didn't have any, I left these off. There is the chance the aircraft didn't carry them as it was most likely used in the Angolan Civil War, which the Cuban's had a hand in. Many of their MiGs were flown by Cuban pilots.  C50 suffered a crash landing at some time during the conflict and was probably written off.

Looks good, I like camo on modern jets. Colourful tail section too.

Yeah man!!!! Nice work on this one!

Probably one of the best efforts I've seen of the Academy kit.

Lovely! Nice to see a scheme from Africa represented for a change, too.
