The first part of our Hungarian series L-29 has been published, with the Hungarian painted field pattern, numbers and the full stencil inscriptions.
The original Soviet silver (natural metal) machines were repainted in June 1973 with Trinate paints on a field pattern. This became the so-called. Hungarian painting pattern (later repainted in Trencsény - this will be the next member of the series)
Staining samples were given based on original codes. From the mock-up paints, we selected those that most closely resembled the original paints. Of course, the machines are worn and faded, so mix the right shades for everyone at the bottom of the photos.
The kit contains a water-stick decal sheet designed exclusively for model kits.
We recommend it over 15 years
Included in the set is a decal for the "Cápeti", a decal sheet for the Hungarian national insignias and a series of numbers, and an extra decal sheet containing the "Cápeti" Shark tooth variations, which available only in this pack. This is how we can make our kit with the new shark tooth painting flown in the last international show of the MiG-21 Bis " Cápeti" in Fairford, 1993. Then the retired and removed from flight "Cápeti" fades with grayed Shark teeth and third with the black shark teeth of the recently refurbished machine exhibited at the Szolnok "Reptár Museum" !
