Background Information

Decal Sheet Contents

This sheet offers markings for seven MiG-19 and Chinese manufactured J-6 aircraft. Countries include Egypt, Pakistan, and Russia. Many of the color schemes are a bit odd and unusual, which makes for some interesting subjects.

The first aircraft is a Shenyang J-6, the Chinese version of the MiG-19S, in Pakistani Air Force markings. The aircraft is a three-color scheme, with the FS colors called out.

Next is a Shenyang J-6 of the Egyptian Air Force, in a two-color scheme, and the FS colors are noted.

The third aircraft is another Pakistani J-6 in red, green and white retirement markings. This is a very colorful aircraft.

The fourth is a MiG-19S from the Moscow Military District aerobatic display team with an all red topside finish.

Next another Shenyang J-6 of the Albanian Air Force.  This aircraft is in a natural metal finish, with few markings.

The next J-6 is from the Vietnam Peoples Air Force in a natural metal finish with green camouflage.

Last is a J-6 from the Chinese PLAAF with a natural metal finish underside and a light blue and green topside.

Conclusion

This sheet provides a nice selection of colors and markings for the MiG-19S and J-6.  The FS color callouts is a nice feature included with the left side profiles and plan views of each aircraft. I recommend this set for anyone interested in finishing a MiG-19S or J-6 in unusual and colorful markings.

I wish to thank Iliad Design and IPMS USA for the opportunity to build and review this set of decals.
