MiG-21PF – Eduard 1/48

I needed a kit for a 48th SIG on Flory Models forum and this one was more or less the first one I found, not counting my Memphis Belle or SR-71 kits. Since the SIG group build ends on may 31th I don’t feel I have time for one of those larger projects, so Eduard Weekend Edition seemed appropriate.

I started assembling parts to the cockpit, engine and main gear well.

Those things will need to have paint quite early on, so that will be what’s up next. Starting with the cockpit and fuselage sides.

So far so good, but I need to figure what colour to use in the wheel bays. Instructions says either interior green or interior grey green. Looking at pics makes it even more confusing.
On some it seems to be a greyish colour, on some more like a pale zinc chromate colour and actually on some it seems to be interior green. Looks like I have to ask around!
