Format: Paperback
The MiG-17 was an evolution of the highly successful MiG-15 which gained fame during the Korean War. This book gets five stars because it not only points out the differences between the MiG-15 and MiG-17, it shows the development of the MiG-17 and changes to the major production versions. Photos of planes from East German, Polish, Czech, Hungarian and Soviet museums are here in various camouflage schemes and states of disrepair. The beautifully restored plane owned by the Commemorative Air Force cockpit is shown in full color.

Modelers will get to see close ups of everything they need to detail their planes - wheel wells, access panels, engine, air scoop, radar, guns, wheels air frame. Aviation buffs will appreciate the detail of the photos. A lot of these birds have just been sitting outside exposed to the elements, but that somehow adds to the allure of this book. Real life planes have chipped paint, streak marks, dirt, rust all of which you can see clearly in these shots.

Several MiG-17s are still airworthy today; the last page shows Red 309 in flight, a big attraction at the Air Shows. 4 pages of color line drawings (including the one captured by Israelis' in 1968 and tested by the USAF in 1969) round out this book. A must have for all fans of MiG fighters, aviation buffs and of course, modelers.

Format: Paperback
A must for modelers and Mig lovers. 80 pages of black and white and color pictures covering every inch of the aircraft making it excellent for model building and reference. Line drawings, side views and different paint schemes are also included. Well worth the price and should be included in your personal collection.
