1/72 Rv Aircraft MiG-23 BN

Gallery Article by Dragan Cvetic on Dec 19 2013



I bought this kit almost a year ago.  I started it immediately and figured out that this is not going to be a pleasant build despite all the great reviews that one can find on the internet.  In fact this is one of the worst kits I have ever built.  I left it unfinished up until a week and a half ago when I decided that I should restart the build and finish this MiG in Communist Bulgarian markings from the early 80`s.

The kit has outstanding details but a terrible fit.  I only added the napalm bombs ZB-500 that I took from a 1/72 Italeri/Bilek Su-22UM3K kit.  I really like the end result.  I used also aftermarket decals from Dak products and those were bad also.  If anyone plans to use these decals, please be careful because the decals rip and tear at the slightest touch.  

The paints used are some homemade mixes using Tamiya agama and Revell enamels.
