  1. Good evening all, while building a project I like to have a second simpler project of let's say 'lesser importance' running in parallel. Like a B-side to the main project. So while I was building the Arado 196 for the Heller group build I confess I was having an affair with Hasegawa Now that the A-side project is over and done, what was hiding in the shadows comes under the spotlight: The idea is as I understand this, to build a kit without having to worry about accuracy, details, sources, aftermarket products, expensive material etc. I failed.

  3. Here are my latest completed models, Firstly the Su-17 ("P") 1949 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sukhoi_Su-17_(1949). This is the A&A Models kit finished with Vallejo Metal Color paints namely aluminium and duraluminium. The pitot on the wing was replaced with aluminium tubing. The undercarriage is very delicate and fragile because of the way it is fixed together. This has been sitting on my Shelf of Doom, so glad l have completed it. Next is the Eduard MiG-15, the Weekend edition. Not much to say about the Eduard k

  8. MiG-15bis - ProfiPACK Edition (7059) 1:72 Eduard The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15 was the most famous fighter aircraft to emerge from behind the Iron Curtain during the early years of the Cold War. Although a Soviet design, the MiG-15 made use of captured German research on the aerodynamic properties of swept wings, combined with a reverse engineered Rolls Royce Nene turbojet engine. The resulting aircraft was a triumph, easily outclassing the more conventional jet fighters then in service. In order to ensure it could perform adequately as a bomber destroyer, it packed a f
  10. This will be my effort for the Group Build: It's an attractive scheme for the early MiG-15, representing an aircraft that flew with the Forţele Aeriene ale Republicii Populare Română, or Romanian Air Force. As you can probably make out from the text in the picture, the blue arrow was painted on the aircraft for a film. The kit and decals come from this boxing from Eduard: I've had it for quite some time now so I'd do well to get on with it. The box is comprehensively packed with a Mig-15, 2 x MiG-15bis and a two-seater MiG-15UTI:
  11. Ok...as promised, a bit of Eduard to straighten me out after the weirdness that was the last Mig I built...oy! Since Stew is building the Romanian Film Star I figured I'd start in on the Hungarian Mig-15bis from the 25th Fighter Div., 35th Fighter Reg., Taszar Air Base Hungary, 1954-55. I swear I saw that someone is building another Eduard Mig...East German? Or am I confusing it with Exdraken's Viennese Mig? Here's a page from the Eduard booklet...I'll sort out the sprue later...That is actually the hardest part of the Big Eduard Box O'Migs... Like the S
  12. Okey-dokey...I have had these Blue Rider decals in the files for I cannot remember how long and why, I do not know, because back then building a jet was not on the radar, but I am happy I have them. In terms of when and where...well, we are dealing with Albania under the Hoxha rule, a time where no one knew what the heck was going on inside the borders; a place that had machine-gun pillboxes every 150m on the borders with the guns pointing in! All I know is that these roundels were used post-war and up to 1960. And they used the MIg-15. This would have also been before Hoxha aligned with t
  13. After my CF-104 and F-84G, I'd planned to switch gears and do a pair of F/A-18s. But, in doing those builds I learned a couple new things about doing NMF, and I generated some new ideas, so I'm going to do another NMF aircraft: a Polish MiG-15. My planned F-18 build is going to be a little grueling because I'm going to re-scribe one of the kits. So I figured I'd try to do a kit that would be a "quick victory" -- after all it only has 40 parts. I'll get into the details first, and leave the personal, human-interest story for last . The kit I'm going to build is a Dragon
  14. Finished Mig-15 using AK Interactive xtreme metal paints. Very nice kit to build and paints much easier to use than Alclad!

  16. Hello, 1/72 MIG 15 UTI slightly altered to represent a Czech version (Aero CS-102): kit by Eduard with a good deal of aftermarket goodies (Brassin cockpit and speed brakes, photoetched flap and external details), very few scratch details (gear indicators and aerial), Vallejo paints. Decals from various sources, trying to represent a Romanian Air Force plane from early 1990, just months from type retirement. Thanks for your comments.

  18. Hi Guys, I have added an historic MiG-15 of a Chinese fighter ace to my walkaround site. It is on display at the Military Museum of the Chinese People's Revolution. Take a look here: http://warbirdswalkaround.wixsite.com/warbirds/single-post/2017/10/10/Meritorious-Jet-Fighter-Wang-Hais-MiG-15 Mods: This is not an advert and I receive no funding for clicks on my site; it's purely for the enjoyment of others. No, really. Not a sausage, nada...
  19. The summer edition called MIG-15 is over. Models for rest and relaxation, everyone well-known. In my work, I only had a problem with Techmod (TRASH) decals. Even though they are subsequently coated with a decal film, they are decomposing themselves in water and do not suffer any kind of decoys. So the number 40 on the models was as good as it is. Less silvering is seen on the shelves than in the paintings, but what is there. The colors are Humbrol 93 and 105 above, Model Model 2123 is below. I do not blunt anymore, here's the picture. Regards.
  20. Platz is to rebox the Eduard's 1/72nd MiG-15UTI "Midget" kit - ref. AE-4 A test build was on display at the All Japan Model & Hobby Show 2016 Source: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1111514358943111&set=a.148871311874092.33321.100002536719681&type=3&theater V.P.
  21. My take on the Airfix 2009 tool sorta-MiG-15; I say that because when you put it next to the Eduard kit the differences are very apparent. It looks nice enough in isolation though. I added an Eduard photoetch cockpit set, but you can't really see much of it in the photos. This kit was a would be victim of the hardwood floor monster (closely related to the carpet monster), who conveniently rematerialised the canopy, which I had dropped earlier, directly underneath my foot. Fortunately, I have a second copy of the kit and was able, after much swearing, to smash-form a suitable replacement. Eduar
  22. My very first jet. Yes...after almost 40 years of this hobby I have finally built something without a propeller. I was astounded at the kit, actually. Talk about tight fitting pieces! Amazing. They must be molding their plastic with lasers. I really enjoyed this build and, as a big fan of Cold War history, this is a must for me and any other aircraft hobbyist. In fact, I have become so enamoured with the early Migs that I have ordered the Quattro box from Eduard and also some Mig-17 kits from AZ Models. Something about all those uses in the Middle East and Africa... I used plenty of s
  23. First the MiG-15: I used Kuivalainen (Eduard) photo-etch for the cockpit. I know there are things that are not 100 % correct, but this was enough for me. Since it was pre-painted, the whole cockpit became a bit too blue. I painted it with Vallejo's new, brilliant metallic colours. Decals are - also brilliant - from SBS Models. The whole build was pretty uncomplicated. Although nothing fits perfectly, it is easy to get a good fit with some trimming of the parts. And over to its successor in Finnish Air Force, the MiG-21UM: Painted with Gunze colours. Decals are a mix fro
