Great...Don't call me rivetcounter or JMN...but Soviet or Russian fighters /attackers usually have odd numbers :) Mig-15,-17,-19,-21,-23,-25 etc.

But fictional Soviet fighters can also have even numbers, such as MiG-28 ;)

Comrades: Does this Socialist modelling collective have an associated NKVD unit? A capitalist interloper is suspected  ::)  Person claiming to be Tovarich GTX_Admin is suspiciously unaware that the hundredth anniversary of Sovnarkom's glorious Soviet Calendar approaches  :icon_surprised:

Comrade, the Committee of State Sanctioned Modelling, Alternative History and Tractor Carburettor Production (not sure how the last bit got added but the State knows best) is very aware of the approaching hundredth anniversary of Sovnarkom's glorious Soviet Calendar.  That said, is the loyal(?) comrade also aware that pre-emptive celebration events (approx 34hrs (corrected Moscow time) ahead of schedule) are an example of decadent counterrevolutionary behaviour obviously instigated by corrupt imperialist elements?  One wouldn't want to need to start a closer investigation of said comrades activities would we...

Thanks guys  :)

Well,what options would I have? ;D The other numbers are available and aesthetically speaking this MiG 22 fits perfectly between MiG 21 and MiG 23.

But fictional Soviet fighters can also have even numbers, such as MiG-28 ;)
I had this in mind.

Errr...is it 1st of April yet? ::)
Jeez...this happens when you reading between the lines or diagonally...or maybe 1st April is the pay day ;D and I jumped into the future  ;D
In this case,my drawing is still eligible?

That will be up to Comrade LemonJello, the current Secretary of the Committee of State Sanctioned Modelling, Alternative History and Tractor Carburettor Production.

GLONASS coverage is good.  Whether you will have time to use it though is questionable.  After all, there are all those Unicraft and Starfix kits to be building...

The Committee of State Sanctioned Modelling, Alternative History and Tractor Carburettor Production has met and come to the following conclusion:

Comrade Axor's eagerness to show the motherland's foes our military prowess is admirable but must be tempered so as to keep Шпионы и диверсанты (spies and saboteurs) in the dark.  In this case, we of the Committee of State Sanctioned Modelling, Alternative History and Tractor Carburettor Production see this as merely a "peek behind the curtain" sure to rouse the proletariat to even greater goals!

However, we must warn the collective that our glorious leader, GTX_Admin has his gimlet eye upon us all!

After investigation by the Committee of State Sanctioned Modelling, Alternative History and Tractor Carburettor Production,chief manager Alexey Axorovici was suspended for an indefinite period and MiG-22 project was canceled,although,the Air Force were in desperate need of an new jet fighter.
However, his departure didn't mean ceasing development of new projects  because,in secret,he collaborated with new chief designer and the result of their collaboration was MiG-24 Fantom !
