There is another skin I want to do for the MiG-15.

It has a red tail and I can't wait to start. I'll post
an image of the work in progress after I finish
the F4U-1a and F4U-4 I'm working on.

In the meantime, to make your time reading this
worthwhile, I think you will really enjoy looking
at this really great video. It focuses on the MiG-15
vs Sabre during the Korean War. It is captivating
and is very well made.

Did you know that a MiG-15 pilot defected to the South in 1953? Guess who got to test fly that plane?

Answer is 39 minutes into that video I mentioned.

Here's the MiG I'm working on right now: number 4115, Chinese Air Force "Red Fox".

No, that's not me in the photo. But that is a really handsome RC plane, isn't it?

Here's my skin. It's a bit too shiny and I want to see how some weathering might improve the look.

I'm anxious to do another camo plane that's from after the Korean War, maybe a Syrian or Hungarian MiG-15.

Here's a great looking Syrian MiG-15bis in 1/5 scale (RC video)

Here is Nicolai Ivanov's #502 camouflaged plane. Just working out details
where stripes don't quite match on fuse and wing.

С новым годом

Interesting documentry. I was impressed with the description of the USA G-suit.
Since the the RAF and the USA had the G-suit from mid 1944 on, when will this
be reflected in Warbirds flight data for late model RAF and USA aircraft? P-47D 25s
P-51D 25s P-38Ls all had the G-suit system installed in them during production.
F6F-5s and F4U 4s also had the system installed although the USN and USMC called
them Z-suits. F4U 1Ds had the system retrofitted by late 1944. Spitfire XIVs and
late model Spitfire IX also has G-suit systems installed. Something to think about.
