Default CARF Mig 17. 1:3.75

We were lucky Andreas brought to Mig to the U.K. so we could see just how spectacular it is. Mine arrives around Xmas.

Not until Early October as I know. Andreas is in Europe till next week and will sort the last details after his return to the factory. Mine has been made and painted sometime, but from flight testing they have a revised install to suit balance point.

I cannot wait…but it will be winter here when it arrives 🙂

Ordered basic silver.
Will paint myself.
Don't have FS color codes. I guess will have to prepare the colors using the computer image.
If somebody knows the color codes, please help

Jack

Dave…. I really like that scheme.. I asked to switch to this scheme…. I’m having mine “weathered”.. I have seen their weathering on an SU and it’s really nice…

im going with MKS servos, Jeti equipment and Jets Munt M250XBL

This will be dirtied too, although the original would have been pretty clean, Migs just don’t look right unless they are a bit grubby…
