The MiG-21i "Analog" was a test
aircraft designed to evaluate the wing designed created for the Tupolev
Tu-144 supersonic airliner. MiG engineers especially wanted to examine
the wing's aerodynamic characteristics and control systems as they had
never worked with this type of delta configuration before.
Two MiG-21S aircraft were modified and equipped
with the new wing, one that closely resembled that proposed for the Tu-144.
The first "Analog" prototype flew on April 18, 1968. A year later,
this first test plane was destroyed in a crash. The second "Analog"
flew for many years and permitted a deeper study of wing's flight characteristics.
The first two Tu-144 pilots were trained in this test aircraft.

COLOR INFORMATION FOR THE MODELER:
The one remaining Analog prototype is on
display at the Monino Museum in Moscow. It has an verall natural-metal
finish with a red nose-cone and red stars. The first Analog, which crashed
in 1969, is portrayed in our box art, its color scheme derived from good
black & white pictures taken prior to its demise combined with the
general color scheme the Soviets used during this period. The cockpit interior
can be painted in blue-green (FS 25299), the instrument panels and side
consoles black, and wheels wells and the undercarriage legs gray-green
