Item DescriptionThe Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21 is a supersonic jet fighter aircraft, designed by the Mikoyan-Gurevich Design Bureau in the Soviet Union. It was popularly nicknamed "balalaika", from the aircraft's planform-view resemblance to the Russian stringed musical instrument or olowek (English: pencil) by Polish pilots due to the shape of its fuselage. Early versions are considered second-generation jet fighters, while later versions are considered to be third-generation jet fighters. Some 50 countries over four continents have flown the MiG-21, and it still serves many nations a half-century after its maiden flight. The fighter made aviation records. At least by name, it is the most-produced supersonic jet aircraft in aviation history and the most-produced combat aircraft since the Korean War, and it had the longest production run of a combat aircraft (1959 to 1985 over all variants).
Each ProfiPACK kit contains a complete plastic model with additional items for variants, photoetched sets, Eduard masks and a large decal sheet covering four to six markings options with stencils. The line is easily recognizable with its orange accented box, and with more recent releases, the addition of the ProfiPACK logo. ProfiPACK kits are designed for all moderately experienced modelers.
