    Product Description
    The Americans had the F-4 Phantom....the Soviets had the MiG-21 Fishbed. The Mig-21 first flew in 1957 and entered service in 1959. Between 10,000 and 13,000 MiG-21's have been produced...making it possibly the most produced aircraft since WW2. In total, 47 different countries throughout Asia, Africa, the Americas, and Eastern Europe have operated the MiG-21 since the late 1950s. Even today after more than 40 years since it entered service, the Mig-21 is still operated by some airforces.
    The MiG-21 is a pilots plane and relied on expert training of the pilot to make up for the lack of avionics and radar systems of western jets. Unfortunately this often proved to be the downfall of the MiG-21, but later models had many of these shortfalls corrected.

    Type: water-slide decals

    How to apply water-slide decals:
    1. Preparation: to achieve better result, a gloss or semi-gloss coat is very important. It will make a smooth layer which the decals will suction to and make it much easier to apply and set them.
    2. Cut out the decal you need (do it on cutting mat)
    3. Grab the decal with tweezers, place it on the surface of the water and leave it for about 20 seconds.
    4. Remove the decal from the water and place it on paper towel to remove any excess water.
    5. Apply decal solution to the part where the decal is to be placed.
    6. Slide the decal off the backing paper on to the model. Using a paint brush or cotton bud is a good way to do this without damaging the decal.
    7. Use the brush, knife or cotton bud to position the decal. Using your paper towel, gently dab the decal and soak up the excess water (decal softner is also recommended at this stage. After applying softner, the decal will suction to the part and flatten out smooth.)
    8. When the decal is completely dry, give another coat of varnish or Klear/Future to seal it.
