Well i hope it could provide some image ( although it belongs to MSFS)

I hope that you could make a lot of great livery for Mig-21 as you have done for PC-9 and may someone could help you in the cockpit.Also we should ask for David Culp or someone to improve the aircraft FDM which is flyable but not really realistic.
A good flight sim is not to make people feel fly easier but to make them feel fly is as real as it get.

Thank you guys, I've already had some nice photos of cockpit from vitos. (Fürchte dich nicht mein Freund, mein Deutsch ist fast gut wie mein Englisch. :D )
IMHO external model is almost good as in MSFS, but later I'll need some help with instruments (Russian Cyrilic). For now I'm just playing with David's package and taking notes what will I implement and replace...

Models is now fully compatible with David's. All animations are rewriten and some nasal scripts are added. I'm working on lights and textures.

Liveries are finished (for now), initial package will include only three of them...
@Jack: 90% of the package is finished but 3D cockpit is still in mess! (need help) :oops:

Early development test package is now published on my hangar: http://sites.google.com/site/pjedvajflightgear/mikoyan-gurevich-mig-21bis/MiG-21.zip

@ Toanphuc: Sorry for my mistakes, I used some other authors reference photos. Please post me a real "North" Vietnamese mid 60's wing insignia photo as a reference (not some model kit cover box). :)

I just tested your Mig-21 and it new model is extraordinary and much much better than the old one.The livery is good and i don't know if you mod the FDM or not but it give some good feeling and handling.However since it is a beta version so it does contain some issue:
-I am not sure what version of this but the mig-21 has many version and there is some difference between the models and the FDM but i guess it not the big problem.
-Some bugs with the animation (most of them are at the wheels and the well doors).
-It still need some extra care at the wheel and the speed brake and try the new wing contrail.
-The cockpit is too need some improve.
-About the VPAF livery we have to face at the problem that not many of Mig-21s do really have a wing insignia ( you will be amaze that i can't find any Mig-21 VPAF pic that have a wing insignia that mean most of them don't have) the Mig-21 MF 5121 of Pham Tuan (the one still remain in Museum) doesn't have a wing insignia or no longer have(may be because the rain and rust).
Here is the real picture:

-Last but not least it does have a RATO and have been used a lot so it would be nice if we can simulate it,it will be some innovation in FG.

Very nice... can't wait to play around with it ;)
BTW: Why isn't there a Russian livery? After all it's a Russian plane.

Thanks for paint scheme, I'll make the changes to Vietnam livery as soon I pass my first exams. :)
I'll try to fix the landing gear animations and make some more liveries (Soviet, Indian and Romanian AF)...
