|MODELING THE EGYPTIAN AIR FORCE
|Mig-15 (click on link to see the prototype).
The Mig-15 was first introduced in 1955 to the EAF. The initial paint scheme was natural metal for the body with the old Egyptian flag roundels on the wings, fuselage, and a flag on the tail. Later they carried the markings of the United Arab Republic and kept their metal paint. After 1967, only few training double seated models were paint in camouflaged army and sand color.
This model was built in 1/48 scale in natural metal finish and with the 1956 markings.
|Below, see another model of the Egyptian Mig-15 in 1/72 sacle showing a different paint scheme, and drop tanks with numbers on the front of the fuselage, not really sure if those tanks ever used on the Egyptian Mig-15s.|
