Thanks to some great advice in the general part of this forum, I am taking the plunge and ordering my first jet, a Mig-21 1/48 be Eduard.

I want to try out my bare metal painting skills but also do love to see a variety of weapons on my planes. Fighter / bomber / ground attack combinations have always caught my imagination.

I would love to strap some unguided rocket launchers under the wing along with an imposing missile or two and a fuel tank.

The earlier Migs appeal because their lines are leaner, particularly the hump.

I also prefer the green cockpits to the ones that came grey.

So in an ideal world I would like the following:

Bare metal paint
Turquoise Cockpit
Earlier leaner hump
Eastern European or Russian insignia
Rocket Launchers AND missiles

Any advice most welcome.
