Maj I.N.Kozhedub was the allies leading ace from WWII. In 1949 he was chosen to lead the flypast over Red Square for the May Day parade in the then brand new Mig 15 fighter. For this occasion he had is aircraft painted up in the same colours as his final Lagg-7 from back in 1945, including his final tally of kill markings.

Model is Hobbyboss, paints are mainly White Ensign, markings are from the Eduard double boxing of the La 7

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.


Wondered what you were going to do with that MiG-15 you were searching for at Telford!  Nice retro markings Chris, great stuff!
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

You just can't go wrong with a MiG-15, your choice in paint schemes suits it well :thumbsup:
