Hello to everyone.  Here is my latest MiG-21 built out of the good old Zvezda MiG-21 bis model.

I managed to add a resin km-1m seat with scratchbuilt seatbelts.  Also the HUD was made by me.  I added some new panelisation while riveting the model.  Also the landing gear was lengthened by a mm or two so it wont seat on its tail.  This is one of the biggest problems with the model.  The main landing gear legs are too short.  

The paints used are Gunze and the decals are from Lift Here.

Enjoy the photos.
