As part of the preparation for a game Martin and I are planning at next year's Conference of Wargamers I need a couple of MIG-21s. As I recall owning a rather battered example of the Airfix version many years ago, I began looking around at 1/72 scale kits. However, they all seemed a bit pricey - even on Ebay. Widening the search a bit, I discovered a Tamiya kit in 1/100 scale - one of a small range of kits in this scale which have been around since the '70s, but I hadn't come across them before. The fact that they are readily available for less than £3.00 each made the decision for me and as I needed two, I obviously ordered three of them!
The kits come in a rather nice box - overlooked by some manufacturers, but I think it makes a difference.
The parts all look very crisp. And thankfully there aren't too many of them! Three sets of markings are included - Soviet, Polish and North Vietnamese.
