The MiG-21F-13 was the first operational version of the fighter. It was used throughout the Soviet sphere of influence. It was used in the deserts of the Mideast to the Jungles of Vietnam. Trumpeter's kit of the F-13 is a really nice kit but the kit decal options could use some updating. Enter Iliad Design and this sheet.

Packaged in a ziplock bag is a single sheet of instructions. Printed on a double-sided page are seven aircraft from around the world in full color. The instructions show left side profiles and upper plan views. There are descriptions and FS callouts for each aircraft.

The decals themselves are very well printed. I'm not sure who printed them. They are thin on the sheet and it perfect register. The colors all look accurate. There are no stencils included but the national markings and individual aircraft markings are.

The first aircraft is from the Chinese PLAAF with Love Live Chairman Mao on the nose.

The next is a famous MiG-21, the one that an Iraqi defector flew to Isreal in 1966.

Another Arab MiG is the next, a Syrian aircraft from the 1973 Arab/Israeli war.

An Albanian Air Force is uniquely painted with green flight controls and canopy frame.

Yet another Arab Air Force is next. An overall painted aluminum lacquer Egyptian from1967 Six-Day War.

The most colorful aircraft is next. An upper surface painted in red and the lower surface is painted aluminum. This special scheme was used at Sliac Air Base in August 1964,

And the final aircraft is a North Korean aircraft from the 1960s.

If you want to add some color or just develop some variation on your MiG-21F-13 this sheet is all that you'll need. There is a variety of schemes from various countries. The decals are well printed.

Highly recommended
