Academy MIG 21 1/48

This is the Academy Mig that practically fell together. I love Academy kits value for money, great detail, and superb engineering. This one was no exception almost no need for filling and sanding, she even took a tumble two days before I was to give it to my daughter as a Christmas present. Bits flew everywhere including the whole spine and tail section, but it went back together with no visible seams and no need for touch up, you can't beat that!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

The only reference I had was this picture of the Indian Red Archers display team in the 1970's. I found the original image in the book "Flying Colors" by William Green and Gordon Swanborough, a must have reference for all aircraft modellers.
