Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21 Fishbed

(1/41) > >>

No thread for the venerable Fishbed yet? Sacrilege!  >:(

How about a third prototype of the Ye-8, with an intake much like the F-107's?
Still elated at the news of a 1/72 injection-moulded kit of the Ye-8 (CLICK), then seeing JoseFern's F-8V (CLICK), my brain connected the dots in a rather haphazard way (it skipped a few, but - hey - all whiffers' brains do that!) and came up with this:

Daryl J.:
Faceplate wings rather than Fishbed wings throughout the entire series.   :)

That one looks great Moritz. :)

Production Ye-8 with MiG-21SMT or Mig-21Bis spine, F-7E wings, and the engine and countermeasures upgrades of the MiG-21-93 (used one MiG-29 engine).  Do the same starting with the F-7 variant with the F8U-style nose intake.

Hi folks,

As the most-produced supersonic jet aircraft in aviation history and the most-produced combat aircraft since the Korean War, and it had the longest production run of a combat aircraft (1959 to 1985 over all variants), the MiG-21 should certainly provide some inspiration for you.  So let's hear your ideas.
