My first aircraft in a while, I think the last one I successfully made was the Dornier Seastar. Anyways, I think this came out really well, I'd say its somewhere around 95% accurate to the real thing, save for a couple panel lines and the guns. Most Mig-21's did not have internal guns, and I couldn't find any information as to where they'd actually be...so I just stuck them in the wings, because guns, right? ******IMPORTANT- Disable AG 8 before flight, it controls the flaps. AG 1 is landing gear, AG 2-3 for missiles, AG 4-5 for bombs, and AG 6 for fuel pod, and AG 7 to adjust elevator trim. Thanks for viewing and reading this far, so please enjoy! Comment if you'd like, I'm always interested in what you guys have to say. Upvote if you think I deserve it, and again please enjoy!

    Oh yeah, it's not that great. Haha. This is my first plane in a while, so I'm getting back into the swing of it... I can make car suspension and details without breaking a sweat, but when it comes to engineering aerodynamics, I'm not exactly the most ideal choice. Hopefully in time I'll get better at it. I'm glad you like it though! @KrakTankkill

    Nice plain, good work.

    Same way as the fuselage. Mirror them so that they're in the exact same location, and then nudge one down once. @KSPFSXandSP

    Oops, didn't realize that about the landing gear. And I originally had the tail like that, but it's pretty unstable when pitching down so I just used control surfaces. They still move though, AG 7 and VTOL. @NANOMAN

    Well they're just fuselage parts attached to wheels and tiny hinges. The front landing gear is also angled. @pushthelimits

    Or as Overlord said, the fine tuner mod is on steam workshop and incredibly easy to use! @FearlessFabEngineering
