Are these based on the R.V. Aircraft MiG-21 molds like the MiG-23 was? I'm not saying that's a bad thing, I just want to make sure of the quality and availability of the kits. -HK sends



Phillip I was a bit curious too. I have just been comparing the recent release of the images of the sprues and test build of the KP MiG 21 MF on Modelarovo compared to a review of the RV kit on ipmsdeutschland . You can make the comparision yourself, but we can see that the wing sprue originates from the RV kit, possibly the fuselage. The fuselage is on a new sprue along with the new tool cockpit and ordinance. The RV kit is a multimedia kit, whereas the KP kit is plastic. The quality of the KP kit looks pretty good to me, considering close up images can be a bit unflattering.
