Trumpeter 1/48 scale conversion
MiG-23UB Flogger C
by Ivan Aceituno
Trumpeter's 1/48 scale MiG-23M is available online from Squadron.com for only $36.95!
Here is my Trumpeter 1/48 scale MiG-23M Flogger C, converted to a two-seater MiG-23UB.
I chose one belonging to the "Al Iraqiya Quwwa to Jawwiya", the Arab version.
The kit itself is fantastic. It is injected in light gray plastic with countless details, and has virtually no problems with fit.
The Neomega conversion is good, maybe just lacking in instructional .... I had to support the build with many reference photos.
I used only 50% of the original kit, supplementing the plastic parts with many accessories and some scratch-building.
Aftermarket accessories included:
Set Neomega conversion to two-seater version.
Set Nozzle and Wells Aires.
Air Scoop and pitot September QuickBoost.
Resin wheels Eduard Brassin.
Eduard Intake Covers
Figure with seat Mig-23 Aerobonus.
Lindel Hill decals Iraq
Painting is a mix of Humbrol, Mr. Hobby, K4 and Vallejo.
For wear and effects I used a variety of techniques : washes , lights, peeling with salt, pigments and Promodeler wash.
The base is 100% scratch-built.
