Czech Splinter camouflage paint masks for Czech Air Force MiG-21MF “7701” 1:144

Suggested scale: 1/144

Re-usable die-cut camo mask set

Limited Edition

The set includes one sheet of masks (shown in the picture). The masks are made from thin masking tape, which is easy to be peeled off and doesn’t leave any stains. The tape is tested on clear and painted model too. If carefully removed after painting, they can be used over and over again. Material is flexible and easily applied over curved surfaces. Semi-transparent for easy and accurate placing.

Czech Splinter camouflage was a demo scheme applied on a MiG-21MF. The Air Force number of the aircraft used was 7701. It was flown mostly at Air Shows by the Czech Air Force. That specific camouflage was made from several almost identical spots, which are spread all over the aircraft. In real life, the Czech Splinter was painted in stages. Each stage was consistent of a specific color, with the spots corresponding being masked off. Then the next color was applied. Because of that, the exact same method is to be used when painting your model with this mask set. That will help achieve maximum realism and color accuracy. Usually, when painting a model, starting with the lighter color is suggested. Because of the complexity of the scheme here, that might not be the best way to complete it. Therefore, you might pick darker color to start with.

Eduard MiG-21MF – 1/144

The original Czech Splinter project by DN Models was based on Eduard 48th scale MiG-21MF kit. Since Eduard MiG-21 kits are the most accurate on the market currently, including their 1/144 scale kit, we designed this set for their smallest option. DN Models does not work with masks for 1/144 scale kits, however due to the high demand for this specific set, we decided to provide it to our customers. As a result, we made only a Limited Edition run, rather than releasing set that will be available long term. In contrast to our regular mask sets, once this Limited Edition is gone, it won’t be re-issued.

Czech Splinter,

or Czech Zebra as #7701 is popular, is one of the most attractive and famous demo camouflage schemes used on MiG-21. It is a complex project and require patience and devotion. In order to complete it accurately, choosing the proper paint colors is very important too. Be sure to trust your best judgement when picking up the colors and check with the reference photos for best results. There are no specific colors stated, so it is highly possible, that the original ones were mixed by the technicians when painting the jet. That makes the task with choosing the colors harder, but nonetheless – fun. 

Mask set features all the spots and the insignia of MiG-21 #7701 Czech Splinter.

Fuel tanks and extra spots are included in the set.

Additional masking might be needed. Rearrangements of the spots is possible. Refer to pictures of the real aircraft.

Mask with caution!
