Description

 

Here is my built up version of the tiny 1/144 OzMod Mig 15 UTI. The only real giveaway to its scale is the mediocre quality decals.

 

 

Hindsight tells me I should of the kit-supplied Polish decals and painted it in the three tone color scheme!

Here's what I did. The cockpit includes the following items:

  • Center and side consoles

  • Ejection seat foot pads

  • Ejection seat guide rails, located at the rear of each seat

  • Painted aluminum foil seat belts

  • Gun sight

  • Rear compartment bulkhead

  • Reshaped, painted wire for control sticks

  • Opened canopy. Luckily, there was a second canopy to use to avoid the mistake on the first.

 

 

Exterior embellishments includes:

  • Internal intake splitter

  • Burner can

  • Scratch built flaps

  • Radio antenna made from painted fly tying string.

  • Painted with Polly S tan and Polly Scale sand, light blue, and clear flat.

  • Decals were shanghaied from Hobby Craft 1/144 Su-25
