Hello folks, I know I haven't finished the M114A1 howitzer yet, but I can’t resist this interesting and amazing kit. Well, a big project requires extreme measures ...BIG kit + BIG ED = BIG work and BIG challenge . It will be a long and slow assembly...lots of copper wires will be added , but I'm motivated to start it. There are hundreds of parts on 13 sprues, not counting the hundreds of photo-etcheds... I decided to build a Egyptian version with a camouflaged SA-2 missile: The vehicle appears to have a light sand color, different from the missile and base above... Well, hard work ahead...
For my next build I have gone modern day and will build the Great Wall Hobby 1/48 MiG-29 Fulcrum C 9-13. I don't think this kit needs too much introduction as it has been widely reviewed and many great builds have been completed. Hopefully I can do it some justice! I intend to build a modern Fulcrum based on the Linden Hill Decal sheet 'Pavlov's MiG's', these aircraft are depicted as they appeared in 2015 and sport typical MiG-29 grey/green camouflage and markings for contemporary MiG 29's. I addition these aircraft sport quite interesting individual markings after they were blessed on there arrival to Erebuni AB in Armenia, where the aircraft have been operating in the QRA role. I will add the Eduard Big Ed photo etch set. Paint will be from the Akah lacquer acrylics, AK interactive Xtreme metal and Vallejo for anything else. A couple of shots of the kit unboxed: the quality of the presentation and packaging is second to none. The slide moulded missiles are exquisite. The engine detail is also impressive, some mad part of me wants to depict the aircraft with an engine dropped out for servicing/replacement. Finally a comparison with the Fulcrum's cousin the Su-33 (Kinetic kit), this really shows how much bigger the Flanker series is compared to the MiG-29! Thanks for looking!
