I recently completed a Vietnam era F-100D Super Sabre, so I have pulled my MiG 17 from the stash to keep it company on the shelf.
I will be using this book as reference;
I have a set of decals for North Vietnamese MiG 17, 19 and 21's which I intended to use, but the kit decals are just more interesting, so I'm sticking with them. However, they won't go to waste as I have a MiG 19 and MiG 21F-13 waiting in the wings.
The plastic looks nice on the sprues. I have read some reviews pointing out shape errors in the wing inner leading edge (it should be sharper), however this is a small issue for me and I will be leaving it alone. There are lots of alternate, or unused parts pointing to other versions in the future.
The instructions are Airfix's usual standard, which means nice and clear.
That's it for now, but I should have progress to post fairly soon.
