If you have one [or more] of the 1/48 MiG 21 kits and you fancy building a diorama around it then Eduard have released a photo etched boarding ladder. The ladder is often seen in the images of the MiG 21 at rest. Tim Hatton [litespeed] takes a look at this release from Eduard.

Glad somebody did it, but IMHO that's a case of inappropriate use of PE. The real MiG-21 ladder is made of welded steel tube, not flat sheet metal....

I'm toying with one made up of fine styrene rod, but it ain't easy!
