  1. I really like this ìdea. Perhaps I'll "steal" it. My father is also a chess fan, and he will celebrate his 80th birthday in October. So I'll guess I could do a set Charles XII vs Peter the Great for him as a birthday present. /Bosse
  2. MiG-31 - AMK 1/48

    Hi, I've done some few decals now. 053 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 054 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr The Orca is in place. 055 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 056 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And as usual with Soviet/Russian aircraft the whole service manual is stenciled around the aircraft. I guess that there are something around 400-500 stencils to do. And since they're not grouped I have to search for each and everyone around the four large sheets in this set. But when I do find the right one, it's one less to look for. To be continued..... /Bosse
  3. MiG-31 - AMK 1/48

    Hi, I've finished the R-33's, and I'm as pleased with them as I'm with the R-40's. 048 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 049 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 050 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 051 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 052 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And with the ordnance ready, it's time to start with the decals. I'm going to use Begemonts sheet(s) for early MiG-31's And I couldn't resist "RED 27" when I saw the Orca. 025 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 026 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr To be continued..... /Bosse
  4. MiG-31 - AMK 1/48

    Hi, Because the early start of the Olympic competition I'm not able to start my building right after breakfast (late night snack?) So I've been trawling the net after some pictures of the missiles on my MiG-31. And I have to admit that I think I've done it this time. So I've been detail painting my R-40's the last couple of days. And I think this is the best detail painting I've done so far. And considering that the Mighty Mig is just another "boring" grey jet I think you have to find some colours where you can. This is my result. I think I used 12 different colours on them. 042 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 043 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 044 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 045 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr I opened up the rocket exhausts and painted them as well. 046 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Now I have to repeat the procedure on the R-33's. 047 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr But the Olympics, and my vaccation contiunes next week as well. To be continued..... /Bosse
  5. MiG-31 - AMK 1/48

    Hi. I'm having soo much fun watching the Olympics that I havn't been building that much. The competions start so early in the mornings/nights that I can't start building before the family wakes up. So I spend the first hours watching telly with some coffee in the shine of my own personal Olympic Flame. 036 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And this monday my youngest, Axel, celebrated is 14th birthday. 037 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr He was rather pleased by this present. He plans to be an astronomer when he grows up, and he knows just about everything about NASA's spaceflights, 038 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Four and half an hour later it looked like this. But I have been building some, I've completed the exhaust on the Mighy MiG. 039 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 040 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 041 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And I'm currently working on the ordnance, but that will have to wait for the next update.

  6. MiG-31 - AMK 1/48

    Thanks a lot. I do agree, it's one of the best kits I've built so far. I like it so much I'm going to buy the BM version later on. I'm doing this one as a Soviet "sans suffix" and I'll do the BM version as a Russian Navy one. That way I'll get the maximum difference between them. /Bosse

    Thanks. /Bosse
  8. MiG-31 - AMK 1/48

    Hi, The Olympics has started and so has my vaccation. I like to watch the Olympics and has since 1984 taken time off work to watch it. So now I have a fortnight of watching the Olympics and building my model infront of me. Yesterday the postman dropped of my new batch of AKAN colours from Finland. [url=https://flic.kr/p/KfsBvZ][/url]023[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/156426495@N05/]Bosse Persson, on Flickr So now I've been able to continue painting my MiG-31 [url=https://flic.kr/p/G5LSRW][/url]034[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/156426495@N05/]Bosse Persson, on Flickr [url=https://flic.kr/p/24aLuCU][/url]035[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/156426495@N05/]Bosse Persson, on Flickr To be continued.... /Bosse
  9. MiG-31 - AMK 1/48

    Hi. I've now come to the conclusion that this will be an early MiG-31 "sans suffix" in Soviet markings. That way I can build the BM version in Russian markings and get the maximum difference between them. So no inflight refueling probe on this one. 032 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr A bit of sanding and it's almost gone. 033 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr I'll have to find some picture of the nose area to see if I have to make some new panel lines. To be continued..... /Bosse
  10. Thanks alot. I'm been wanting one for years. /Bosse
  11. MiG-31 - AMK 1/48

    Hi. I've now come to the painting stage. The last parts hade been glued to the fuselage, and one layer of primer in for of Humbrol 140 has been laid. 030 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 031 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And after that I came down with something my stomach definitly didn't like. So I've not done anything more on the Mig the last couple of days To be continued..... /Bosse

    Thanks John. Yes it's rather big isn't it. /Bosse
  13. MiG-31 - AMK 1/48

    Morning. My worktable is getting rather crowded now that the nose section has been added. 029 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Hopefully I'll glue one or both fins on it tonight. To be continued. /Bosse
  14. MiG-31 - AMK 1/48

    Hi. I've had a rather productive weekend. I've glued the wing in place. 025 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr I had to use about every clamp I got to get a secure fit. The cockpit is done. 026 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr I actually used the kit decals, and it turned out much better than I expected. I found some sink marks on the nose section that I had to deal with. 027 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr This is the first ones I've found on this kit. The now matt coated cockpit is ready for insertion into the nose section. 028 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And that is how far I've come. My plan for tonight is to get the cockpit and nose section in place. To be continued...... /Bosse
