mig-21 camo pattern?

  • I have a question about a certain color pattern I saw, can someone help confirm this pic?

    Last night, I was looking thru a book called Modern Military Powers: Israel by the Military press, and I saw a pic of a Mig-21 moving fast, looked in a roll. It was ID's as Egyptian, and the color pattern was the coolest Black/Gray/Blue camo pattern (By chance I have justpicked up for a whopping $3 a 1/72nd Mig-21 kit). Does anyone know if this was a standard color pattern for the Egyptians? I have never seen it and was not able to find it in any pic research via the web, so I am wondering if the pic that I saw was perhaps taken with a filter of some sort - some help, please?

  • Sounds interesting, can you scan it? I'd like to see it.
  • Definitely NOT a standard camo pattern for Egyptian Migs.  The most common camo colors were tan, green, and brown.  some were just tan and green.  But you never know with Mig-21's.  I never knew that there was a Vietnamese Mig-21 camo'ed in three shades of blue (seen on an Albatros decal sheet). 

    I'd like to see a photo of your Mig also.

    Cannot promise but will try.  If you go to a place called arcair.com, and click gallery, and then select Mig-21 - man there are WEIRD  camo finishes out there!

  • Indeed there are!  Try and find the Mig-21 decal sheets from Albatros.  Here's a link to a scan of the sheet for 1/32:

    The byline on the decal sheet is "Do you want weird Mig-21's?  Now you've got 'em!"  However, I must admit that not all of them are that weird, but the Vietnamese one looks really cool and I plan to build it soon.
