Airfix MiG-17 #10 Decals

Previous post here.  I am into the decal stage.  Using Xtracals sheet 72-313.  The instructions show the national insignia in 6 positions, but the sheet only gives you 4.  This caused momentary panic and anger until I looked at the photos of the plane and determined that the wing insignia were upper left and lower right only, not all 4 wing positions as indicated on the instructions.

Here is where I am now.




  1. Do you figure the stencils were overpainted? I dread stencils. Looking good so far.

  2. From the photos available, it looks like most of the stencils were painted over when the a/c got its brown over blue paint. I am putting a few stencils on, as I think it looks odd without any.
