Croatian MiG-21UM

Hey All,

Here's my first entry into the GB. This is the RetroWings MiG-21UM conversion for the Eduard kit. I took a slightly different approach. Due to a really badly warped fuselage and my desire to not drill out the resin fuselage, I grafted the rear end of the Eduard kit. As you can see, this required a little plastic filler (measure once, cut twice right?). The wheel well also required significant cutting/sanding to fit inside the fuselage.

So far so good though. I hope to make more progress over the weekend. I also have a Czech MiG-21MFN started.

Wow! That is fairly major surgery .... carried out extremely well indeed.

Nothing like some decent scalpel work to get a Group Build rolling. Well done! ;)

Well, I don't have much progress to show, but I'm slowly moving the UM and an MFN along. I'm hopeful I can get the canopies on and hit them with a coat of primer this weekend.
