This MiG-21UM was acquired for Croatian Air Force in year 2003, when it was overhauled and revised to the UMD standard. The first two years it served in the camouflaged “outfit”. With the aim of popularizing and promoting Croatian Air Force at home and abroad, the Air Force has ventured to follow world trends and paint one of its aircraft in an attractive paint scheme. One of the schemes offered by Željko Pračić was selected and this two seater, with number 165, was painted in ZTC early in July 2005. First flight after painting was conducted on July 14th, 2005, at 02:15 PM.
The official presentation of the aircraft took place during the flight program as part of celebrations of the 10th anniversary of the military operation “Storm”, on August 5th, 2005. Immediately after the presentation, the aircraft was affectionately nicknamed “Kockica” (literally: “Little Cube”) and has become very popular among aviation enthusiasts around the world.


Note:

Most prints are rolled for shipping, as tubes are the strongest practical container for this purpose.To open the shipping container, it’s best to choose a clean, flat, dry area in which to unwrap the package. A care should be taken when removing a print from it’s shipping container, and when removing the paper wrapping from the print. We are trying not to use an excessive amount of tape when packaging prints, as this can make it difficult to unwrap the print without causing damage. Once the print has been un-rolled it’s preferable to avoid re-rolling it, not only because it’s easy to cause damage during this process, but also because prints should be stored flat to avoid warping. Never store a print in it’s shipping tube/container for an extended period of time (months or years) as the paper will acquire a curve that no amount of flattening with weights will cure. This would result in a gentle ripple across the surface of the print when framed. Framing your print will make it less vulnerable to staining, humidity or other forms of damage and ensure you keep enjoying it for a long time. It’s also recommended that either ultraviolet filtering (UV) glass or UV plexiglass be used in your framing. Although the material used in creating the prints are designed to minimize fading, we recommend you avoid exposing your print to direct sunlight or fluorescent lighting.
