MiG-21R Czech AF

Another Mig-21 in my collection, and again it's an Eduard in the quarterscale. I built the plane OOB. Eduard provides a lot of extra's like PE, masks and a lot of decal options. Paints and varnish are a mix of Tamiya, Vallejo and Humbrol.

I chose the Czech Air Force version of the MiG-21R (R for reconnaissance). You can recognize the R-version by the wingtips and the big recon pod under the aircraft. Maybe the colors are a little bit to dark. The real plane’s brown is not quite so dark. 

Like always, this Eduard kit came together without any problems. The quality is rather good, so the price is also rather high.
