  1. Thanks Werner. Aaccording to this picture they did. /Bosse
  2. Congratulation to all Finns on your Centenary Indepence Day. Time for the final assembly. Main landing gear and drop tank. F037 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr F038 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And some ordnance. F039 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr F040 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And unfortunately this is how far I got. Life and workload took away to much time for me to be able to finnish this before the Centenary Indepence Day. This is how far I got. F041 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr F042 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr F043 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr F044 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr F045 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr I got the ejection seat, canopy and half a pitot tube left to do. And I'll not be able to finnish it tonight due to the office Christmas Party this evening. So it'll be a few days late to the finish line. To be continued..... /Bosse
  3. Hi. Decaled and matt coated. F034 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr F035 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr F036 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr I only used around ten stencils this time instead of the full 200+. One week left to do the final assembly. To be continued..... /Bosse
  4. Thanks Werner Yes I have, but since we're living in an apartment I don't have a space for an airbrushing place other than the balcony. And this time of the year that's not an option. /Bosse
  5. Thanks / Kiitos Antti. The "brown" is actually called "Black" on the bottle. But it's more antracit than coal black. Yes, the pictures was taken with artificial lights, and flash on my mobile. Not much daylight these days, hey? I don't know if I'd like five Finnish Bis on the shelf, but I might do a recce one someday. And you're absolutely right about that AKAN paints are manufactured in Finland. /Bosse
  6. Hi. My finnish MiG has got some colour. F032 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr F033 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr I've used AKAN's AN11 and AN44. And now I've seen one of the advantages of acrylics. I did two coats of each colour last night, and with my normal Humbrol it would have taken at least four evenings. And with Xtracolor or WEM/Sovreign it would have taken even longer. So I guess I'll convert to acrylics, and I really like AKAN's colours. I'll done some more painting tonight, and then some clear coat. And perhaps that means that I'll start with the decals this weekend. To be continued..... /Bosse
  7. Hi. If I'm to have this done by december 6th it's high time go start painting now. F031 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr One layer of steelgray (AKAN 73023) I'll be continuing painting this during the week. To be continued..... /Bosse
  8. Hi. It's time to glue the fuselage together. When gluing the fin to the fuselage, use every clamp you can find to get a good seam. F024 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr The same goes when fitting the wing section to the fuselage, it's unfortunately very easy to get a step between the wing and fuselage. F025 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr When the wingsection had dried I just continued to mount all the small bits. F026 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr F027 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr F028 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Nearly all bits are done. The traces after my nose surgery have been taken care of and are now gone. F029 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr F030 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And with that my plan for the evening is to glue the last parts around the cockpit in place, and then primer. To be continued..... /Bosse
  9. Hi, My Finnish MiG is starting to grow. As I suspected you have to adjust the nosegear well a bit. Plastic part C40 is replaced by a smaller resin one. F017 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Then I dryfitted the aft conering so it fits up against the nosegear well. When it was in the right position I drenced it with CA glue. F018 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr After that I glued in the cockpit/nosegear section. F019 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr The part fits reasonably well. F020 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Less so on this side. F021 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr But nothing that can't be fixed with some small plasticard strips. F022 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr So out with the strips and the glue. F023 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr To be continued..... /Bosse
  10. Hi. Almost all sub assemblies are done, and it's time to glue an aircraft together. F016 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr To be continued..... /Bosse
  11. Thanks alot. They were very tasty birds. /Bosse
  12. Hi, I had a fantastic All Hallow Saint Weekend. I had found frozen quails for a good price. And my lovely wife Anne prepared a real feast for us with them. 025 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr The quails was stuffed with parsley, bacon, lemon sest and a bit of garlic. Served with potato gratin, and champignon sauce. Marvelous.... I also finished my egyptian MiG-21 FL. 026 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 027 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 028 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 029 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 030 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 031 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr The only thing left on it is some silver on the pitot tube. I got eight weeks left on my Six Days war memorial build, and I don't think I'll be able to finish them all in time. But a few more should be possible. To be continued..... /Bosse
