Question 1/48 Monogram Mig-15

I am looking for any info on how well the old 1/48 Monogram Mig-15 kit builds up. I can deal with the raised panel lines no problem.

What I want to know is how bad are ejector pin marks on the gear doors, bays flaps etc. These are tough to fix in these areas for me.

If possible, could you also post pics of the "Pin" marks in these areas so I can see how bad they are? (This would be a BIG help!!) Most of the sprue shots I have seen only show the "flat" side of these parts, so I can't see where the ejector pin marks are or how bad they are.

If anyone has this kit in the box, and can post pics of these areas, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks again for your help.

I can't answer your question directly, but I don't recall having any significant issues with mine (unlike with Monogram's F-86). I think I've read that it is a bit "portly" (a little like yours truly, I guess). This one was built sometime in the early 80s IIRC.

I built mine SOOB, except for the Micro-Scale PRC markings.

I can't remember what I used for the finish. I think SnJ. Unless you're tied to the Monogram kit (or can't spend the money) I'd go for a Tamiya MiG-15.
