    Building the model

    Firstly, make no mistake this is a lovely piece of work and builds into a very impressive reproduction of this iconic Cold War machine. From every angle this looks right. However, it is not without some issues. The level of detail in the cockpit is astonishing with a range of PE parts. The main problem is that some of these are tiny and require bending! Huge amouts of patience are needed as they tend to ping off if handled slightly off true. This lovely piece of work is then largely obscured when the fuselage halves are together and the canopies are on. The model requires weight in the nose to stand on the tricycle undercarriage. It tells you this in the instructions. What it doesn't say is it needs a lot of weight and there are not a lot of cavities to put it in, especially when there are two transparent panels in the floor. The painting mask for the canopies is a lovely idea but they are very fine, hard to remove from the backing and curl up almost instantly sticking every where but where they should. Finally the decals are well presented with a good variety. There is a second sheet of tiny warning notices etc but there is no indication of where these go! This is a great kit but not for the novice or those with a short temper. I suspect that the week end version of this model will suit the needs of most modellers and at a lower price.

    UTI MiG 15

    On first inspection this is a little beauty. The molding is crisp and detailed. The instructions are very clear and the choice of five markings is generous. There is a PE sheet of tiny parts which will prove to be quite a challenge. How it all goes together we will see in construction.
