The Mig-21 chronicle (3).

Cockpit done and fuselage closed! This step has been hard. Not an easy thing to fit an Aires resin inside an Eduard kit, especially if the resin is for the Academy Kit. But there is hardly anything that a motivated modeller cannot fit with files and putty. The McGiver School.

I also used Eduard´s pre-painted photoetched for the control panel and some clocks. To save some effort. :)

I think it looks really nice so far. There are still some wires to be added in the front part before gluing the windshield, along with the HUD screen. 

Now I can add the windshield and canopy, as well as the final avionics panel behind the cockpit (also from Aires). But that´s another story...
