Gabriel reviews and builds the 1/72 scale Eduard MiG-15, and marks it up for Romanian service. Some very nice work in this smaller scale.

Thank you, Kevin! Exquisite editing! I'm not sure but I think the horizontal resolution of pictures is wrongly set, like they were re-scaled from 16:9 to 4:3.

I am not sure about the photos, they did look a tad off. I use Corel PaintShop Pro to resize, and it is suppose to auto detect the ratio when resizing. I did open another copy, manually set the ratio to 16:9 and they look the same.

They are a tad off indeed. Thanks for trying! I just check the source and they are fine on Google photos. I'm being troublesome, huh?

Cheers!

Not troublesome at all. I downloaded then from Google in one batch as a zip file. It might be helpful is you can resize them to no bigger then 1200x900, and email them to me at kevin.brant(at)kitmaker.com as a zip file.

Gabriel,
A most impressive build of the Iconic Mig-15.The decision to use the Romanian markings really makes the Mig standout all the more.

Eduard really did quite an excellent job designing and molding the cockpit. It really looks quite good.

Thank you, Joel! Yes, it's a gem of a kit. I bought already a new one which intend to make it also with Romanian markings but three tone camo this time. The Romanians used them until '90 as meteo recon planes.

Thank you for feedback.

The correct address is kevin.brant@kitmaker.net I guess.

Hi, Kevin!

Thank you for your efforts. There is no change on my screen whatsoever. I guess I have to live with it.

Thank again,
Gabriel
