    Nobi, you are tireless!
    Excellent choice, looking forward to more as you go along, as usual...any thoughts on the livery colors? Perhaps a camo scheme?
    Cheers!

    I just watched an episode of "Dog Fights" on The History Channel featuring these jets versus (I think) the F85 (or F86) Sabres in Vietnam (I think. I might be slightly off) This should be an excellent model!!!

    BTW, anyone else watch that show? Great inspiration for building, and a nice history lesson ...

    NOBI,

    another great design from you, as always. Why not a MIG in AF markings hehehe. They do have several of these hanging in front of their airports and a lot of them rotting away in the airfields. the ones that i see here are mostly in camo colors. by the way, i hope i can swing by Bangkok for a little R&R sometime this year if all things pushes through.

    The primary differences in the Mig-21 family are in the spine area. The -F had very little spine, the -PF had a larger bulge just behind the canopy. The PFM added a parachute housing, and then the -bis had the full length bulged spine. Then, there is the way the canopy opened. On the early machines, it opened forward, then later it went to a side hinge opening. And, not to forget, there is the Lancer, 21-93, and the SMT, one I would personally love to see you do Nobi.

    Not that I know anything about the Mig
