This spiffy little kit comes two to a box. There are 5 markings choices. This is the “out of the box” version review. I did the other half of the kit using the Brengun PE.
Since this is the second of these, I gained a little experience with the first, and I learned something. Well, I actually knew this from before, and that’s the MiG-15 model is a tail-sitter, and you need to add weight to the front. On my Airfix 1/72 MiG-15, I had to put about 6 finish nails in the intake before it would sit on the nose wheel. For this kit, the amount of lead needed just fills the top of the intake splitter.
As for the cockpit, there’s a decal for the instrument panel, there’s a seat in there, and the stick is there. This is a huge improvement over the JJ-5 (MiG-17) I built 10 years ago, which featured no opening for the cockpit, just a smooth surface with the canopy on top. Before putting the decal in, I painted the interior 36375 gray and the seat black.
