My MIG-15 and MIG-21 were about the same size and weight- 64 oz. The 15 has an airfoil wing and flies great, good climb, less throttle for cruise. The 21 has a flate plate and the SPJ needed alot more power to push it around. Big difference. And the 21 is supposed to be a rocket. So with a small airfoil wing and twin SPJ, it will be. Besides, I didn''t like the way the silver scheme came out. So it will be some kind of camo next.

Wish you all a good day !

Thank you so much for this great comments.
Hope I can learn just more from you all.

@ Beanie: I think J`s answer is right "rearview mirror" on top of the canopy.
The second thing I mean, you can see on the picture in the middle, on top of the fuse:



the problem is, I can`t see on the picture how that things really look and found also no pictures in the net where I can see. That where just little parts, but I think, they will give my bird a real good characteristic.

Thank you all so much for all you`ve given to me. Hope I can give you back a little bit with my pics.

Primed the fusealage and did a little sanding. Much more to come.
There are some areas where I might add some bondo, to fill small gaps.

Hope to learn decals!!! Hell, i hope to learn how to paint as good as you, and the rest of the guys around here.

finally got around to getting the last components to my mig-21 build. And all future builds.

Got any pointers?

I looked threw local paint stores/hobby shops and the like, and they want an average of 150$ for these little tiny .25 gal airless compressors!! This one from home depot cost $80 and came with a cheap brad nailer and staple nailer. not sure if ill ever use them on any of mt foam builds, but im sure they'll come in handy for something. Plus this is a 1 gal tank. although its louder then maybe some of those high dollar jobbers they where trying to sell me, but im positive this will run less :P

Airbrush seems tyo have all the bells and whistles those 75-100+ jobbers they where trying to sell me. Picked up the mositure filter and hose as i just knew they would come in handy, the compressor had no filter, and the hose supplied is less then cheap :P
