So this is the third attempt to finish this mig. It has been in my shelf of doom for a long time ...
Now I have a pilot with a seat from Aerobonus, because the kit seat and the cockpit just look horrible. Now I can also build an "inflight" version.

Ooo watching

Very welcome Augie 🙂
At first I wanted to build a silver one, now it's going to be a Hungarian camo.

I remember that there where times one man said I don't like Pilots in my planes😉.
And now nearly every build from you starts with a pilot 😉!
Times are changing but the pilot looks great Roland!

Take a seat here as well and watching the show!

Thanks and welcome Konrad! 🙂
LOL Touché 😄
The Aerobonus seats just look great. And there is a pilot on it 😉
BTW: You have a good memory 👍

Welcome Nathan! Thank you 🙂
A kit from my „pile of shame". The bad thing is that the kit was a present. I've never been a big Mig fan, but as Konrad wrote correctly: preferences change.

Count me in (again). Looks like a #migresuscitationfebruary on our benches (again)😉
Looking forward to see this finished

The pilot looks really cool Roland! Great painting and highlighting (Just wonder a bit what he's doing with his hands^^)
I have a started mig 21 smt rotting in its box as well for years now, I have half a heart to join in to this mig-re-whatever-February...😉

Welcome Guy, Moritz and Daniel!
Tahnk you Guy. It really is that way. I don't like most of the pilots. But the Aerobonus look really, really good. Especially the seats.
Moritz, that was actually a year ago, 😄
Thanks Daniel! The pilot is busy. He had to adjust something to the right of the console. And he was looking for his corona test with his left hand😉

This came out of no-where.. Awesome looking cockpit and pilot. Following 👍

I've got a couple of these in the stash that I had been considering selling off and replacing with something from Eduard. What was the basic fit of the fuselage and wings like?
18. March, 17:16
Roland Gunslinger
Many Thanks and welcome James! The kit fits together well. The only disadvantage of this Academy/Italeri kit is the lack of detail in the cockpit. The seat in particular is just plain smooth and even with the Eduard PE parts it looked terrible. That's why I bought the pilot on the seat. I cannot say whether the kit is accurat because I am not familiar with MIGs.
