FirstLook

 

Considering OzMods' predilection for Korean War subjects to date, it is not surprising to see perhaps the most famous fighter on the peninsula in the 1950s - the MiG-15

OzMods'  comprises 21 parts in dark grey, low-pressure injection moulded styrene; plus  two parts in clear vacform plastic. Options include two drop tanks for the wings.

 

 

Surface detail on the shiny dark plastic parts is by way of finely engraved panel lines. The panel lines are quite crisp and consistent, and the overall surface of my sample is an improvement on the earlier kits from OzMods, but will still benefit from light sanding and polishing before assembly, especially the wings.

The engineering is conventional. The fuselage is split vertically, and the wings - one piece each - have small tabs that locate into slots in the fuselage sides.

A cockpit tub with moulded-on side console detail, a separate instrument panel and seat are included, as is a small decal sheet with four great marking options:

  • Czech

  • North Korean

  • Chinese

  • Soviet

In case of mishap, two vac form canopies are supplied.

OzMods' 1/144 scale MiG-15 is a very nice looking model that will be an asset to anyone's 1/144 scale Cold War aviation collection.

Recommended.

 

Thanks to Greg Anderson from OzMods for the review sample.
