Thumbs up

HI cafe,
I found your work in this forum before,'Le forum en papier' which is very good。Beautiful and smooth design. THX!
This is a version I have completed.

It's the earlier version where the camo on the spine didn't line up with the fuselage. I hope the new version corrects that. I think that's the only change. You get more external stores in the pdf, though for this one it's R-3R missiles, more empty pylons and more fuel tanks (3D & 2D). If you want R-60s, get the most recent czechoslovakian MFs (9714 & 4312) or the east german #570. That one has more options including adapters for 2 R-60 on a single pylon. The east-germans upgraded their PFMs to carry them. (1)

You may have gotten it from either my FB or the french forum where I post most of the screencaps (though the latest batch with the Bis is only on FB for now). Many of these haven't been released as pdfs and should be taken as previews. You can also get a lot of unreleased (and untested) Mirages that way. ;-) Most of them are 300 dpi but the earlier ones might be 150 or 200 dpi.


(1) There was also a dual rail adapter for 2 R-3S (R-13M & R-13M1 too?) used at least on east-german and polish PFMs. I need to make that one. Might remind me how to fold the APU-60-2 with 2 R-60s.

The camera is cruel to th my building skills. ;_;

Anyway, I built 2 MiG-21bis fuselages to test two options for the canopy/spine :

- two parts, separate canopy and spine (like on the finish test-build) -> 1st fuselage
- single part, the canopy is attached to the spine -> 2nd fuselage.

I prefer the single part.

The 3rd fuselage is my old hungarian MiG-21MF test-build (1st version). The different shade of green shows where I used a felt-tip pen to hide the misaligned camo.

On the 2nd pic, the first fuselage has the 2-part version and the middle has the single part version.

Maybe the next step for the bis... Tough those yellow patches currently don't align with their equivalent on the nose. Paper width may (or may nor) compensate.

I added an algerian MiG-21FL to this download. A quick and easy recolor.

Going well mate.

Last night I glued the two-piece spine and canopy on your MiG-21U two seater. Looks fine but in hindsight and assuming it would still fit a single piece would certainly be easier. Nearly finished the model, which, like all my 1/200 builds is displayed wheels up 'in flight' on a stand. I'll post photos hopefully later today on my 1/200 thread.
