MiG-21bis D Hrvatsko Ratno Zrakoplovstvo

This aircraft was one of a number of MiG-21s purchased in the first half of the nineties, despite a UN embargo, from the former Soviet Union (reportedly the
Ukraine or Kyrgyzstan). The first unit to integrate the aircraft was the 22nd eskadrila lovačkih zrakoplova (Fighter Squadron) based at Pula. In 2003, this was
one of eight MiG-21bis aircraft to be modernized in Romania by Aerostar to MiG-21bis D standard. Later, the plane was observed at Zagreb, Čakovec and
Zadar. It carries a typical camouflage scheme for the modernized -bis D aircraft.

Once again it's Eduard's fishbed in 48th scale. This time it is bis variant. The only difference between this and MF kit is in one sprue with a different spine and aerials to make it into modernized Croatian bis D.
