If memory serves me correctly, I have one or two of the Hit Kit 1/48 Ye-8 kits sitting in the remote southern stash.  I get the free time, I'll have to go check on the number.  I was going to combine it with the MiG-21Bis spine and canopy from the OEZ kit for a late-production operational example, but not necessarily in Soviet markings.

Let me make you feel worse, I also have a 1/48 conversion kit for a MiG-21-93 that I can add into the mix. :D

Seriously, we might work something out if you've got a spare day while you're in this area (it's a two-hour drive, each way, to get to the remote southern stash).

There was a proposed close support version that looked not unlike that: model pic in RSP-Fighters.

Many moons ago, I drew up an entirely hypothetical aircraft that looked like a Ye-8 (which I wasn't aware of at the time) with Su-22-style swing wings. My guess is that same-scale ones would be too big, but 1/100th ones (if such a thing exists) might be right for the Art Model ye-8.....

In addition to the later version of the MiG-21,  have always had a soft spot for the MiG Ye-8


I wonder if the Ye-8 would still have been worthwhile if it stuck with stock R-11/R-13 turbojet?

J-7 with a new forward fuselage and main wings modelled after those of the FC-1 prototype.

And the attachment is a partial mockup of the J-7MF project, an "insurance" against any possible failure of the FC-1.  Discontinued because of the ultimate success of the FC-1.

This past weekend I paid a visit to the very small but very interesting air museum in Olomouc, Czech Republic and saw this MiG-21.




I thought to myself:

Cut those yellow support legs down by half and pop on some big drag racing slicks and fire up that Tumansky in the back!  >:D

J-8D Finback with a stretched nose just behind the radome and a double delta wing like the later Flagons.   It would be about the developmental end of the MiG-21 subtype.

Stratospheric Models did one, but discontinued it due to poor sales.  I think I got the last one.  It's going to be combined with a Mig-21 Bis spine and a Ye-8 resin kit.
