it came partially disassembled in an open top container.
A portion of the structure on top of the aircraft obviously encountered something along the way. Fortunately, the extent of the damage was very small compared to the mishap that destroyed one of our Mi-24's.
As work has progressed on the MiG, the damaged ribs and damaged portion of the turtledeck skin were removed.
Replacement ribs were fabricated and a replacement piece of skin was flush joined to the remaining structure.
The final join will be a perfect fit. We are fortunate to have a craftsman with the ability to do the necessary work.
