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.

Valom has released the box top for their upcoming kit.  Even though rumor has it that Clearprop are going to do one, I will probaably get the Valom kit, if only to appease the modeling gods and make sure the Clearprop kit does come out. More on the Firebrand here.

I have always been of the opinion that the Spitfire V was the ugliest Spitfire.  However, I must say, this new Airfix kit looks rather nice, and you know the price will be right.

Another update.  Previous update here.  The MiG is done with painting and has now been glossed in anticipation of decals.  So far, so good.

The Arma FM-2 is out.  There are some very nice markings choices in the kit.  A must have.  Arma has also announced that they will follow up this kit with an F4F-4.  This gives me hope they will do an F4F-3 as well.
