    Hello,

    This is my first model after a very long break. Paining with Alclad II metalizers. The most parts fits quite well, but making undercarriage in up position was a true challenge, cause the wheel covers are in different shape than wheel wells.
    The aicraft No. 1023 was flown by Col. Władysław Hermaszewski (later become General and the Chief of Fighter Air Defence Corps) during great aerial parade on 1966, when he lead formation of 64 MiGs.

    I like that lot. But - an 'in flight' display and no pilot figure?
    But even without, it's still a very effective presentation.

    Thanks a lot. Glad to see you like it.

    Dear Airframes,I putted the pilot's figure inside, but glass blinks on the photos hidden it completely! On first picture you can see top of his hat, and on the second pic his face is visible through the side glass of windscreen. In Hobby Boss set pilot is not included, so I took WWII pilot's figure and made some upgrades in his oxygen mask and headphones.

    A little close up on the cockpit:
