Trumpeter 1/48 scale
by John Trueblood
My build of the 1/48 Trumpeter MiG-23MF is a Polish Flogger of the 28 PLM at Slupsk Air Base in 1994.
I used the excellent Eduard photo-etched sets for the interior, exterior and F.O.D.
The kit wheel wells and jet exhaust were replaced with the Aires resin sets and the plastic landing gear swapped out for G Factor brass. The air to air missiles are Brassin.
Paints are by Gunze and decals by Montex. The Flogger is one of Trumpeter's best kits and I experienced no construction problems.
Research was easy for me since we have a full size Bulgarian MiG-23MF at the “Wings Over the Rockies” museum where I volunteer as a docent.
