  1. Thx vultures. It's my first go at this technique so just seeing how it plays - hopefully work out well.
  2. Right folks, finally back with an update. Since my last posts I decided that I would go for the NMF Polish scheme for this build and that I was going to go totally off on a tangent and have this MiG in flight which is something I've never done before. So I've closed up the fuselage, filled and sanded where necessary although this was minimal and helped by the way the kit goes together to eradicate some of the joins. The only issue I've had with the 'in-flight' scheme is that the landing gear doors were a pig to sort - obviously Zvezda manufactured these to work best in the open position even though the instructions offer both. Other than that, in fairness the kit has been no problem to put together. The canopy was masked by hand and went on without problems and then the whole lot was sprayed in differing aluminium, silver and steel shades to offer contrast. This is where I am now: Thanks for looking folks - as always your comments are appreciated. I've just gloss coated her so decals, panel line wash and some weathering will be next as well as fitting the various pieces of ordnance. Hope to update you all very soon.
  3. That just keeps looking better and better - can't wait to see the finished article. Can I ask what paints you have used for the RLM 70/71 please?
  4. That is looking the business - have one of these in the stash so checking for any pointers and advice. I'd probably have more than 1 He 111 in the stash if it weren't for HWMBO!!!!!
  5. Yeah I'd love to see it - any excuse to see a 111 brought to fruition - gotta be one of my favourites me thinks - go for it!!
  6. Hey folks Is there room for a little one in the GB. I'd like to enter the Revell/ICM I-153 Chaika. I'm currently finishing a Mig-21 for the Nato/Warsaw pact build so I fancy going back in time with this GB. Kris
  7. Thanks Mark - glad you like it and thanks for your comments
  8. Thanks vultures and Martin - I'm bowled over by your kind comments. I'd love to see how your F15 turns out Martin - bet you'll do a cracking job
  9. Thanks for your comments FortyEighter & Steve - much appreciated. Hopefully I'll do my third jet justice (the Mig-21) which will be followed up by my fourth - the Airfix de Havilland Vampire. Modelling jets for me seems to have been like buses - I've waited ages for one - then they've all come at once lol!!!! Kris
  10. Right folks - this was my submission for the F-16 group build which I managed to finish a couple of days late I was so close but yet so far!!! This is only my second modern jet build and I really enjoyed it - made more enjoyable by the fact it's an excellent kit IMOH. Hopefully I can have as much luck completing the Zvezda Mig-21 for the other group build. So I would really appreciate your feedback on this one and I hope I have done the kit and the aircraft some justice. Built OOB with just a couple of tweaks such as a scratched up pitot tube. Pics below - hope you enjoy:
  11. Thanks for your feedback Rich - much appreciated. Glad you think it looks ok as I'm more of WWII aircraft guy so this was totally out of my comfort zone. Must admit I enjoyed it more than I thought I might so perhaps more jets will be on the horizon
  12. Right folks - I must apologise as I've managed to complete this group build - albeit a day late!!!! Booooo!!! I hadn't realised that in the throws of putting the model together I hadn't taken any more photos and before I knew it she was basically finished so I left it until it was totally completed to post any more photos. This is only my second modern jet build and I really enjoyed it - made more enjoyable by the fact it's an excellent kit IMOH. Hopefully I can have as much luck completing the Zvezda Mig-21 for the other group build. So I would really appreciate your feedback on this one and I hope I have done the kit and the aircraft some justice. Built OOB with just a couple of tweaks such as a scratched up pitot tube.

  13. Thank you for your kind feedback Brit - much appreciated. I'm not sure about the arresting hook as I have a limited knowledge of buccs. I look forward to seeing your model when it is completed and wish you good luck for your build. Kris
  14. Thanks Mick - it's getting there. Although I'm still distracted by umpteen other models on the go at the minute
