Hey! You made me want to build this one! Amazing work, well done!

by the way - what is the mixture you used for canopy airbrush?

Eduard PE set colors for cockpit are always wrong in my opinion. I would definitely trust AKAN/Mr.Paint over them when it comes to russian colors.

Though it is easier to correct the color on the plastic parts rather than PE.

AMK has missed these small items on the wings, looks to be connected with the outboard pylons, which will be fitted after all, sincee I can't find any pictures without them..

front look a tiny big bigger than aft on the pictures, so.. and after some primer..

A BSM hasn't got any fuel receptacle panellines, so out came the filler and made a hinge there as well, mirrored from the right side..

Some progression from the last couple of weeks..

 

Mr Paint color 186 with a postshade made of the same color with Mr. Color white..

Mr. Paint 47

with a very thin stripe of black on the leading edges..

Only the Red stars are from AMK. I do think the color looks a bit strange. The rest of the decals are HGW wet transfers. Loving them!

Foxhound106.jpg

 

Eduard always has some small but important details..

That was a lot of fun.. uhh.. work.

Wash applied on a clear layer of Alclad 400 Gloss..

Adding another small detail..

I will try to get Alclad metals over a glossy white finish. Should save a lot of time masking the missiles..

Looking really sharp Sid! Like the shading you've applied.

Great work on the PE for the nozzles!
