Mikoyan MiG-21MF Bunny Fighter (Eduard 1/48)

The Eduard MiG-21 family in 1/48 is, as anyone who has built one knows, the best MiG-21 in any scale, equal to Tamiya in both accuracy and engineering quality. I was asked to build the Founder edition of the Eduard Bunny Fighter Club MiG-21MF by Adam from The Modelling News and I was happy to do so based on eveything I had heard about the kit.

To be honest I was not very wrapped in the crazy bunny scheme at first but after I started on it and came up with the idea of modeling it as a derelict with its glory days long behind I got invested in the build. This is meant to be a fun kit and I approached it that way, going fairly heavy with the weathering and using my own interpretation of the way the Bunny Scheme would have been applied in real life. Even though Eduard provides loads of delicious Brassin sets in the box, I chose not to use them on this build and what you see here is 98% out-of-the-box. The detailed build of this model can be found in the "On the Bench" section here.
