Release date of our MiG-21BIS in 1/48 is getting closer and we’re here with a short blog post on this fantastic kit. Specifically, we’ll be talking about the last sprue that will make the MiG-21BIS kit complete.
The “J” sprue for our new MiG-21BIS was tested last week and first molds of this sprue went just fine. This specific sprue contains rudder, spine and antennas. These are the main parts which make MiG-21BIS different from other MiG-21 versions.
And why do we consider this first test as successful? It’s mainly because of the small parts of MiG-21 BIS kit, which were injected perfectly. It usually happens that during first tests, smaller parts do not inject very well and the intake holes or pressure need to be modified. It didn’t happen this time, which is good as we could go straight to final touch-ups and second test of this sprue.
Our new MiG-21 BIS 1/48 will be released in December 2011, in ProfiPACK line. You’ll be able to find it at Eduard Store, or in your local hobby stores under catalog number #8232.
Next week, you can be looking forward to more posts, photos and information related to this long anticipated kit. Until then, enjoy several photos made during the first test of the J sprue.
