SF.260 and MiG-21 - Tobruk, 2017

Post by Tim R-T-C »

Tobruk, Lybia 2017

A pair of LNA aligned Lybian Air Force planes are prepared for ground attack operations.

The planes are the Eduard MiG-21 MF with decals from the recent bagged edition, alongside the resin Heroes Models SF260 Warrior.

The 260 is a great little kit although I didn't do it justice with slightly fogged canopy and grainy paintwork. Still got 2 in the stash fortunately.

Technical support is provided by three 3D printed vehicles from Butlers Printed Models which are a little rough but provide some great weapon options.

The figures are actually WW2 figures from Arrowhead Minatures.

I'm very taken with these!
I wasn't really aware of Heroes Models but they appear to do some useful stuff.

I second that - I haven't even started my SF260 yet so brilliant getting it complete so fast Tim!

Re Heros models I can vouch for the quality of what they do and the excellent service. Our members outside the UK of course can get the stuff cheaper for the time being (depending on your local tax rates !1)

Yes Fabio is quite active on KG144 and is a committed 144th modeller. I've placed a couple of orders and all good quality. Shipping seems like a bit but he uses courier delivery so you get stuff in a few days rather than a few months!
