Eduard 1/72 scale MiG-15bis

By Tom Foti
Published: July 8, 2014

Eduard’s 1/23 scale MiG-15bis (second) plastic model kit features optional photoetched-metal interior pieces, masks for the clear parts, a posable canopy, and optional parts for some of the variants. There are markings for five aircraft: Cuban, East German, Egyptian, and two Soviet.

In the cockpit, you have a choice of plastic pieces and decals or photoetched-metal pieces; I chose the latter, gluing them down with Microscale Micro Metal Foil Adhesive. It was hard to hold onto the throttle quadrant, let alone glue it in place. The cockpit and pilot seat are painted ocean gray; likewise, the intake ducts were painted aluminum and installed on either side of the cockpit.
