Algerian MiG-15bis

This is the new version of the Airfix 1/72 MiG-15, one of the first Hornby Airfix kits to be released. Much has been written about the somewhat deep and wide panel lines, but it is still a joy to build. In 1962 Algeria received five MiG-15UTI trainers as a gift from Egypt following the Algerian independence from France. The Algerian air force subsequently operated 20 MiG-15bis fighters.
