Kit JX-02 MiG 15 is a 1/25 built up scale model jet. Includes a vacuum-molded canopy.
 
In Nov. 1950 when the Russian-built MiG-15 was introduced into battle by the Communists, U.N. forces were startled by its advanced design and exceptional performance and hoped one of the planes could be acquired for technical analysis and flight evaluation. However, MiG-15 pilots were very careful not to fly over U.N. territory where they might be forced down. In Apr. 1953, the U.S. Far East Command made an offer of $100,000 for the first MiG-15 delivered intact. On Sep. 21, 1953, personnel at Kimpo Air Base near Seoul, Korea were surprised to see a MiG-15 suddenly land downwind and roll to a stop. The plane was piloted by a 21-year old Senior Lt. Kum Sok No of the North Korean Air Force who had decided to fly to South Korea because he "was sick and tired of the red deceit."
 
This kit includes a full-size rolled plan, building instructions, hand sorted and weighed printed balsa and balsa strip wood, vacuum-formed canopy, wire, TissueCal™ markings (printed directly on tissue), and Easy Built Lite tissue in silver and red. You will need a hobby knife, fine sandpaper, building board, glue, and catapult rubber.

"Very nice kit. Fast build. I built this one for rubber-power, eliminating the Jetex mount, and making the rear fuselage formers “whole.” I added the wing fences and the nose intake nacelle, which makes a nice pocket for a little clay for balancing. I covered the fuselage with silkspan and brush-painted it silver. This little plane has a very nice glide. After taking it to the next Blacksheep meeting for show ‘n’ tell, I’m going to give it to a Russian friend." - Matthew Payne

"Took some liberties with your kit - Added wing air spoilers, landing gear, guns, and also built up the air intake and exhaust openings. Built up the body to exclude the jet pack openings. Model has North Korean markings." - Jim Choquette
