Decals - H Models 48-005
Extras - Master turned-brass gunbarrels, pitot etc, Eduard etch cockpit set.


MiG 15 bis
Assigned to Capt. Mikhail Mikhin
518th IAP, Tatung-kao, DPRK
Summer 1953





















Built for a GB on another site. second time I've built this kit and second time it didn't let me down. Superb engineering as ever by Tamiya, and my favourite of their first tranche of 1:48 aircraft kits. First time using H Model decals and although a little brittle, they react well with good ol' MicroSol & Set. Not to much else to say except that this was my first serious attempt at 'marbling' the finish (underside only) and it seems to have come-out OK.

As ever thanks for taking the time to look and / or comment. Please feel free to make any comment, ask a question or hurl abuse.

Happy Christmas everyone.

Ian.

Nice work Ian. Like the colour scheme, certainly more interesting than looking at a NMF.

Nice build Ian. I note some variation in top colours, especially inspection openings? Did you adopt a post shading approach to the top and a pre-shade (marbling) to the bottom?
