Mikoyan Mig-26 FROGMOUTH San Antonio AFB, Cuba 1993



Another look at the "Kuban Krokodile" scheme.



Aggressive pilot (Got very used to the reclined look of the F-16, Really looks different)



"Viper" front



"Crocodile" rear



Underside



Underside detail



Detail of Louvres shown closed, they open on the ground when Intake Doors close to guard against FOD.



Shown banking for all you intrepid Photoshoppers out there...



Closer



Demarcation line, scoops, and 'brakes.



Front



Until next time.  O0

After 8 years in the making its finished! The last model I build before I move to San Antonio, TX this Wednesday morning. Researching the Soviets in Cuba I discovered there is a based named San Antonio:

So naturally thats where this beauty is based!  ;D Cool coincidence!

Colors are

50's aqua, Euro I Gray, RLM 75 Grauviolet, and Acft. int. black. outlined with Ink. Very thrilled with this one :-*

Love your model. Just beautiful.

By the way, in Spanish 'Frog mouth' can be used as a synonym of 'Big mouth': a person that speaks too much and says what he/she should'nt. Is in English the same?

 Beautiful build and a truly striking color scheme-I just noticed your moving just down the road from me
 ( relatively speaking. Austin is about an hour and half north of SA ) Any chance we'll see you at the
 Austin show this year?
