Jonathan's JACH MiG-17F

Spitfire versus Bf109? MiG-15 versus Sabre? Stuka versus T-34? Martians versus humans? Any pair of 1/144-scale items that were pitted against each other in mortal combat are fair game. Get those creative juices flowing ...
Runs from 7 May 2016 to 17 July 2016.

The other half of my F-8 vs Mig17, the Attack/JACH MiG 17F

This is a beautifully made model kit

The worst part about that decal sheet is now I want four more so I can build the whole collection! And I dont want to collect MiGs right now.

The instruction sheet shows the green and brown camo scheme. the NVAF called the planes with this paint scheme "snakes".

Early in the war they were bare metal, but I think I will have to try to do the camo. I havent done any camo painting since i was a boy.

I dont see a call out for nose weight, but I bet it needs some!
