MiG-21 “Fishbed” - General Discussion

The origins of the MiG-21 can be traced back to the swept-wing Ye-2 in 1954. Its successor the Ye-4 first flew on 16 June, 1955 and featured the delta-wing configuration so synonymous with the “Fishbed”. After years of development, the design eventually entered service with the VVS as the MiG-21F in 1959. Since that time, over 11,000 aircraft have been built, serving with nigh on 60 air forces. All variants of the MiG-21 are fair game here, including the license-built Chengdu J-7 “Fishcan”.
Runs from 1 October 2019 to 26 January 2020.

I now need to decide which schemes I'll be applying to my Eduards...
It's my madness that keeps me sane.

I would love to see the PFM sheet! I did my first PFM in Mongolian markings. Looking for something different for my next PFM.
