Slavo Hazucha Very nice job - I like the depiction of "mid-service-life" Soviet metal and the pilot in the cockpit is a cool detail too. Personally I like the bulkier Sukhois even more than the MiG-21 family... Is this OOB or did you add anything substantial for this result?
My fascination for Italian WW2 planes probably stems from this French or Belgian comic, in which pilots from various countries in WW2, gets shrinked, and fly around in tiny tiny planes and establish a micro community. The planes looked so nice drawn that cartoony way I though.
Dave Flitton I have three of these to build, there is some inspiration here!

Treehugger This reminds me, I have a Pilatus Porter model, seaplane, but I put a lot of nose weight inside the floaters big mistake, because it made the model really weird to hold and very problematic.
Looks like a really nice model, and the canopy clear parts look nice as well I think.
Łukasz Gliński Ahhh, that bring memoeries back! This was my first ever encounter with model kits - never really completed though
Dat box and teal sprues! Respect for your detailing, watching it makes me consider building one in the future

Slavo Hazucha Lovely work & beautiful color finish - the light blue turned out just perfect - is that an actual shade out of the bottle, or your own mix? Top

Scott Head Slavo, that is my own mix. I forgot what colors are in it.
Dave Flitton Nice work! I am glad to see what the inside looks like

Łukasz Gliński Well, OOB there's nothing inside that tram Lovely job, btw, I admire the scratchbulding effort (as it prevents me still from starting mine )

Scott Head Yeah the interior of the kit is void of anything, annd to make matters worse, if you want o make an interior, you have to deal with the back side of the wing recesses which form huge bulkheads in the cockpit. I worked around these to give the illusion of a cockpit, but in reality the upper pilot cockpit is much more spacious.
Murad ÖZER Scott that's a beautiful camo! how do you recommend the kit , any fit issues? i believe this one is a relatively recent zvezda kit where they began upping their game vs. the gorbatchev era plastic lumps.
