Hello, I`ve managed to take pics of the project I`ve been working on for quite some time. I`ve stopped cause I decided to build the new CSM`s kits - F.K.8.

The Lim-2 was a Polish Licensed built MiG 15 bis. I always wanted to have a decent looking kit of the Polish Lim 2 sitting on my shelf since I had been looking at one during 8 classes of my primary school (named after the 1st Fighter Regiment "Warszawa" (Warsaw) as you can see in the picture below:

Unfortunately, it has been repainted some time ago in an inaccurate manner - the tactical number should be red etc.

I was also lucky to find a picture of that plane during the time of its service in 38th Fighter Regiment located in Powidz:




When it comes to the kit I use the Part set for MiG 15 Bis and Bill Model decals and Alclad paints.

In the meantime, I`ve painted the pilot`s figure.

Filip,

From time to time some jet model caughts my eye, and your Lim-2 is one of such jets.

What looks like a flawless paint job, restrained (but very real like) panel contrast and subtle weathering really brings your model to life. Well done indeed.

Also a word about your photos... damm, I wish I could take such clear photos of my models. How do you achieve this?

Overall excellent, thanks for sharing

Cheers
Pedro
