This time a better kit made it to my “workbench” (better than the romanian Hobby Park MiG-21). The plane was the most produced figher jet of all times, in his peak production period was cheaper to make than the BMP-1

This kit was produced by Romanian brand Hobby Park. It is, as technology used, as old as the plane it’s self 🙂 – so I have to modify a lot, to sand a lot, fill gaps modify parts, etc. … a lot of patience needed to finish it.
Like the Panther earlier, it was a nice kit to build (it comes from Zvezda, too). The little soldiers are from Zvezda, too.
On this model I tried a new type of paints (Hataka lacquer paints). It wasn’t a immediate success, but I’m still learning. The model was painted in IAF cammo.
This was a fun kit to assembly and paint, I had little trouble on the tracks, but the rest of it was pretty okay. About Panzer V (Panther) ausf D:
It was participated in the battle for Kursk (although is D variant, was the first operational of it’s type, A variant was a later one). Has a crew of 5, almost 45 tons and a 75mm main gun – rifled. It was not very a reliable equipment, later variants variants came with improvements.
