Hi Friends, @Val_Ukraine , @Procopius My MiG is from IBG 72901 set "MiG-29 in Ukrainian Air Force". IBG reboxed Trumpeter's model with Foxbat decals (it is company from Ukriane). The set contains 3 different camouflage variants, in my opinion the most attractive one is with "tryzub" (harpoon). I added some extra goodies: Eduard's exhaust nozzles, Quinta cockpit and small but very usefull Eduard PE set designed for old Italeri kit. Instead of using digital cammo decal set I used additional masks produced by Foxbat too. I also added some wires, replaced probes and antennas. It was very relaxing build, took me only 3 months. Let's look a little closer: Important remark: I cut and shortened front landing gear. Without it model looks really bad - it's rear side is much too high, as you can see below. In my opinion best solution would be: to shorten all gear struts 1mm and add extra 1,5 mm for front gear. And some photos with Tonka which I finished recently too. She still waits for photo -session: Glory for free and independent Ukraine. Please, help and support brave Ukrainians, they are fighting not only for their own freedom. Thanks for watching and reading, hope you liked my Mig. Best regards, Michal.
Here is my 1:72 Su-27UBM-1 "Blue 67" Ukrainian Air Force. Trumpeter kit (not very good) with Eduard PE set, Pavla resin ejection seats, Aires resin aux air intakes, Master metal Pitot tube and some parts from old Heller kit. Foxbot decals and paint masks. Painted with Hataka Orange. It took me hundreds of hours to finish it and I`m still not very happy with a result. But looks nice in this camo. Thanks for watching!
Hi everybody, Me and Juan (JFVicente) decided to try a parallel build this time. A few months ago, Juan asked me to sell him decals and masks for "Blue 57" from Begemot decal sheet. I said to him he will get them for free (whole Flanker Family 2 sheet) if we do two Flankers together. Then he promised a pair of aftermarket Alamo missiles, and in return I will send him my Archers, as Eduard gives too much for single plane in one box. So, I took another Ukrainian Flanker, from Eduard re-edition of Academy, and here we are. Each of us will complete different Ukrainian single seater. I will go for "Blue 56" and it will be built in Karlovac, Croatia. http://www.airliners.net/photo/Ukraine---Air/Sukhoi-Su-27S/0607109/L/ While Juan will make "Blue 57" in Madrid, Spain. http://www.airliners.net/photo/Ukraine---Air/Sukhoi-Su-27S/2250983/L/ We decided to start it now - this project was postponed due to our commitment on 1:72 scale projects: Juan with his superior Hasegawa Su-33 and me with my Italeri Su-34. So, we both have some "Flanker experience" in the past. We would also like you support us all the way, as it's first parallel build for both of us. Also, Juan usually makes 1:72 scale planes only, while I have already one unfinished Flanker in 1:48, started many, many years ago. So we expect a lot of motivation and hugs from you. No kissy, kissy this time. To preserve our "momentum" in this joint project we decided to open one topic for both planes. You will have everything on single place, regardless of update frequency. It could be that one of us goes faster or slower, or we will have different approach, but the goal is the same. In the next posts each of us will present his model with all the goodies we have collected. Juan, I wish you the best modeling time during next few months. Stay tuned, Tomislav
