Default Hobby top Gun Mig-15 Bash

Well following the same theme as my Fly Fly F-100F build, I had to try the Hobby Top Gun Mig-15.

Features include:
Eflite electronic release mechanisms on the wings for drop tanks
Fiberglass finish
Panel lines and rivets
Light kit with landing light and afterburner ring
Partial cockpit kit
Full gear doors on the mains with sequenced inner gear doors

At the field! This thing is such a great flyer, I would build another one if I wasn't so burnt out right now!

Here is a video so you can see how the maiden went:

Thanks guys, it is a fun plane to fly, I really enjoy the extra scale features I added, so it was definitely worth the extra work.

You did yourself proud with this one beautiful job.

Have to ask how did you do the panel lines, and what did you use for for the panel lines. Have a GP patriot to build this winter like to do a paint job on this and try to challenge myself for a more scale look.

Awesome! How did I miss this when you first posted? Great work!

However, being an honorary member of The Historical Sticklers Society, (Futurama. Season 1 episode 2) I feel obligated to point out the MiG-15 didn't have an afterburner. Still an awesome model that I probably couldn't have done. And it looks great in the air too!

Thanks xmech2k! I didn't add an afterburner, it's just lights that simulate heat! Looks good in the air, and it was just for fun.
