Two days ago I built the F-86 (U.S. Air Force) modo, so yesterday it occurred to me to build the MiG-15 with chinese colors to get the couple of fighter jets that made history during the Korean War.

The FG kit is fairly simple (as usual) but I thought that the models landing gear could be better so try to build a landing more faithful to the real ones, I wanted to do something simple with cardboard but it took me several hours make changes, but is a good way to spend a free Saturday.

Another addition to the original design of FG was to include the three machine guns, antenna and a cable.

Here some photos of construction process

The bumps on the wings red painted, as the finishing touches to the model.

The oponents over the skies of Korea, as you can see are not the same scale, the scale 1 / 72 was intended but i did fail, the real MIG-15 is somewhat smaller than the real F-86, the MiG-15 model is a little bigger which is incorrect.
