@Neil, indeed as part of my random and fictitious approach to cabins, it is a pipe for something- it can't be seen now! Correct, it is an A string!

It is true that there are a lot of templates on the surface of the MiG and it takes at least one afternoon to apply them to the model. The reward for the effort is a more authentic looking model. Especially on silver machines, stecils will brighten up a monochromatic surface. I think the extra work is worth it.

Congratulations Andy! Following since inception. Very happy that you got the RC of the 5 finishing school. Excellent work and research. Very instructive. I am currently making an specific misión of an A4Q from Argentina and enjoyed a lot the research and modifications to the Argentinean versión that even Airfix missed. I I deeply understand the tribute that we try to give. Cheers my friend!

Wonderful additions. Once you've bored out a 0.5mm hole, they nestle well into the plastic. Bonus: they are more robust from accidental break-offs.

I've used their roundels, (wing/fuselage), code letters and the tri-colour tail flashes. Tricky to get used to, but with a bit of trial and error they seem to work. The big reveal will happen once the camouflage is finished on the Airfix 1/24th Spitfire 1a. I'll post some pictures - wish me luck!!
