Hello all

Lets see if I can get another WIP going (yes I am still working on the Catwoman for the Sci_fi GB).

I actually started this a year ago but it got put on the shelf while I did a few other bits n bobs.

So the box
[Mig21%201_zpshmblnfv9] 

The aftermarket
[Mig21%202_zpszeqf5evp] 
[Mig21%204_zpsawnovrlq] 

Eduard -Brassin Cockpit
           -Wheels

Cold War Studios - Correct Nose

Plusmodel - UZR Training Missile

Master - Bis Pitot tube

              Mig Static dischargers

Decals - Bort 243 donated

and this is what I am going to have a go at (243 was repainted last year and looks clean but I like this weathered one more)
[Mig21%203_zpsax7g4fyx] 
Picture courtesy of Anton Balakchiev (very nice chap) who has some great pics of the Bulgarian Air Force - web http://www.balakchiev.com

This is where I had got to when it was shelved, Test fitted a few major parts and cut off the nose and test fitted the CWS replacement nose (as seen when I was building my F-5)

[F-5%203_zpssljupckr] 

Now we have this beauty back on the table, I always seem to forget to take pics but these show where I am.

Almost completed the resin cockpit which is an amazing little kit all to itself. Here is the bulkhead and pics of the cockpit in situ (forgot to take pics before I put it in doh)

[Mig-21%205_zpsp2fppnwd] 
[Mig21%207_zps0cqumkkl] 
[Mig21%208_zpssvqwy3o5] 

And then the Cold War Studios corrected nose which fits nice (i just cut the angle a fraction out so needed a small amount of filler)

[Mig21%209_zpsivoumksk] 

[Mig21%2010_zpsnegl9eea] 

More soon

Thanks
Simon
