  Poland Independence Day 2010 

 

This is my MiG-21UM Mongol B in 1:48th scale.  I used as the base Academy MiG-21MF version with NeOmega resin conversion set for UM variant. It was very difficult and complicated operation.

However, the result came out satisfactorily for me. The model is painted in an unusual gray-gray camouflage.  Only a few planes of this type was painted in Polish Air Forces.
MiG-21 was called by our technicians and pilots as "szybki" ( speedy ) or " żelazko" ( iron ).  My 9311 was used by 10 ELT in Łask.  

I would like to thank my colleagues for their help in building this model: "dareksommerfeld", "dd1968", " Lucas HS", "young" and "Piotrek.S."
Best regards
