Not only rendering goofs, but parts are spread all over each page and some parts are missing altogether. Some parts are mismarked and the same number is used for two different parts? There are some parts with the part number printed across them ( instead of a leader line to the part). Lastly, it is missing detail views of the components, so it's a guessing game and sometimes, I had to rearrange parts to make it all fit.

The photos of built model on the Model-Kom website is not the same as the printed one I purchased. So whoever modified the model for commercial printing messed up somewhat.

I would not recommend it for an inexperienced builder.

but.....

I just love unique planes and this is certainly one.

external skins

There are two housings in the assembly here. The nose gear bay and the air brake.

I had to remove a portion of the framing as it interfered with the airbrake housing.



gear bay is glued

trimmed and ready

but....


the frame is a bit too long in the back and needs trimming.



also, the nose gear bay aft wall is non existent ( I will add a scrap piece ).





all is ready

note : the small rectangular opening on the sides of the inlet are for the engine auxiliary blow in doors ( used during take off condition ).

Exclamation Inlet on

Here is the inlet assembly and the fuselage
Mig-Ye8 Model Kom in 1/33-img_5307.jpg


glued on.

Not the best fit in the back due to some confusion on my part and part fit as well as lack of glue strip/frame there. I will fix it later on.

Despite all of the issues with this kit, you're doing a great job Isaac.

My kit came with duplicate 2 pages, so some missing parts that are identical can be "harvested" from those extra pages. I think the publisher knew of these goofs and just thrown in those extra pages. More to come.

Exclamation Fuselage mated

At this point, the nose section is attached and we now have the entire fuselage.
