This is my Academy 1/72 MiG-27 Flogger, converted into MiG-23BN Flogger of Iraqi AF. I added an intake splitter plate on both of the intakes to make it as MiG-23 (MiG-27 doesn't have them), and also I made a separator on the canopy.  Below to the right is a picture of our "Desert Storm" display at a recent event.

I used Tamiya and Xtracolor paint and decal was from Carpena. This Academy model has recessed panel lines and the fitting is good also, except for the join of intake-fuselage that need filler.

This model has some inaccuracies, but I found them too late to be corrected...
