Model by George Perkowski >> This Syrian Mig is the 1/48th scale Academy kit. I added some cockpit detail and a resin seat (I don't remember the mfg.). I added some landing gear detail and the rest is basically out of the box. A mixture of water, India Ink and a drop of dish detergent was used to high light the panel lines. Model Master enamel paints were used and Testors Dull Coat lacquer cut with automotive lacquer thinner for the final finish.

Model by Greg Wise >> 1/48 Academy Kit that swallowed every thing Eduard had available plus plenty more resin aftermarket stuff. Lots of overkill on this one. and really not much over all improvement. I did this one over a course of 5 years or so, most of the time she collected dust in the pile of shame, finish it right after the Mirage.
