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

You keep teasing us with photos of the real thing. Where's the model?
