[Kit Review] - Attack / Jach 1/144 - MiG-15 UTI -
Something that i picked up wondering what the 1/144 kits from Attack and or Jach are like. Found it to be a very expensive kit for what it is compared to say Revell, Sweet and Platz etc, with maybe half the detail. But then this was one of Attack first 1/144 releases and it look like there improving with each release which is mostly Soviet jet which Eduard have now started there new range with.
The kit itself seems to be in correct proportions with nice amount of panel lining but what i found strange is that this is a normal single seat MiG-15 supplied with the UTI duel cockpit which means cutting out the second seat behind the pilot to add a very chunky canopy, with no cockpit detail supplied at all. Nothing to worry about for a modeller but for the cost of this feels a little disappointing.
Decided not to build the kit, think remodelling the F-toys Gasphon would be a better option if i wanted a MiG-15, feel this could be the worst review ive ever done, damn shame. But the decals are nice with 5 options.
