I had to rework it a little to make it look like more like a real MiG-23MF.  The nose cone is from the RV aircraft MiG-23 boxing (I had a spare left over from my MiG-23bn build).  The panel lines were rescribed and rivets ware added.  The cockpit came from the spares box and the armament pylons are scratchbuilt.

The paints I used are homemade mixes using agama and Tamiya enamels and gunze acrilycs.  The decals are also from the spares box.  This aircraft represents a Syrian Arab Republic Air Force aircraft during the civil war that has lasted for several years.
