Post subject: Improving MiG-21 Shapes... Reply with quote
As per a request I received from Kap a few years back, I am finally getting to work on improving the shape for the version o fthe MiG-21 in FAF Korea...



Kap sent me the above screenshot with the requested changes...

I have made many of these changes to the shape to refine it and to fix the small errors that Kap pointed out to me in that screenshot of the default shape...

I am about 2/3s of the way thru it and will post pics of it tomorrow...

I have completed some additional improvements to the MiG-21 shape tonight... Completed all the work that Kap had requested, plus fixed some of the problem polygons that didnt line up correctly and allowed see thru cracks in the fuselage mid way thru...

Also fixed the skin stretch that these changes caused in the skin layout...

Tomorrow I plan on fixing the tail planes so they dont mirror the same skin on the bottom panels, and to align the skins on the wings better and line up the flap panels...

Should have pics tomorrow when the work is completed...

A big thumbsup to you, CAG - this really means a realistic shape, I say.

Changes so far...

Fixed the weirdness on the nose intake and corrected the out of alignment intake spike and rounded both more...

Fixed the lower vertical fin/strake

Fixed the sag in the fuselage meway between the intake the cockpit...

Tried to fix the tail coe but there was not enough polygons there to make any read difference...

Fixed the pitot tube and brought it to a point...

Fixed the cracks in the upper fuselage between the cockpit and the tail...

Still have to reskin the lower tailplane and correct problems with the skin on the wings...

Final MiG-21 shapes...

MiG-21F in aluminum skin... (used a combo of Yugo and NK insignia, since they are so close. I like the look!)
