1/72 Italeri MiG-23 ML

by Dragan Cvetic



Here is my MiG-23ML done from the Italeri kit.  The kit represents a ex-Iraqi MiG-23ML that was overhauled in Yugoslavia but got stuck there because of the Gulf War and the sanctions against Iraq during that period.  The kit was rescribed and some wiring was added to the landing gear.  I have added a resin km-1 seat in the cockpit and have scratchbuilt everything else in the pit.  The kit was sprayed with enamel paints eyeballed from pictures.  The decals I used ware random Yugoslav Air Force roundels and stars.  The flag is airbrushed.
