  1. I had this sitting around half built before I got sick, so decided to finish it off this week. It's not a bad little kit, some minor fit issues but nothing that someone with moderate skills couldn't cope with. Decals were shot so these were from the spares box. I went fairly hard on the paint chipping as I read the paint was probably scrounged from Army units and was applied in the field, probably with minimal surface prep. Thus it tended to wear rather badly.
  2. What is the best MiG-19 kit in 1/72nd scale? I know of the old Heller and KP kits, and Mastercraft do one. Are there any others? I'm specifically looking for the cannon-armed version, as opposed to the missiles-only version. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! Best Regards, Jason P.S. This is an aeroplane that cries out for a new-mould kit. Airfix? Zvezda? Anyone?
  3. I have combed the internet for a couple of days and can't find an answer... When applying MIG FILTERS to acrylics - to 'unify' the colours - do I varnish first - or apply to the raw acrylic... Help - Please Thanks in advance - Steve
  4. I have a question that's proven a little confusing. For a long time I've had a bottle of Mig Productions Thinner for Washes, but this stuff seems to be nigh impossible to get anymore. Everywhere lists it out of stock, and Mig Productions itself doesn't seem to have a store anymore. All I can find is the Ammo Odourless Enamel Thinner, which I've no problem getting provided that it is similar to the Mig Productions Thinner in its softness and use with pigments (I use it fix them) and washes. Has anyone had any experience with both and is there any real difference between them? I'd really like to avoid harsh turps and stuff if I can. Gaz
  5. This is the old Monogram 1/48 MiG 15 from the 70's. Dad had this kit kicking around the house for at least 30 years and he finally gave it to me so I thought I'd build it. It's not too bad, but scales out to around 1/44, so any aftermarket bits you have in 1/48 will be way too small. The fit is decent but the canopy is fairly poor. I added some instrument decals to the cockpit to add a little detail. Markings are those of Maj I. P. Golshevskij who apparently flight night time interception missions over Korea. Decals from the spares box and I made the front FOD cover.
  6. Acrylic Concrete Texture for Dioramas (A.MIG-2108) AMMO by Mig Jiménez AMMO have a growing range of acrylic pastes for dioramas, some of which we've reviewed already, such as the excellent tarmac and beach sand we reviewed last year here. I tested the tarmac before I dispatched it, and it was awesome. This new one is concrete, and comes in the same 250ml tub as the others, with a screw-down lid and tub shape that makes it unlikely to tip over. Inside is a goopy paste in a cement grey colour, which has texture particles suspended within its matrix to quickly give the correct finish. I tested a patch by scooping an amount out with an artist's palette knife onto some styrene card that had been roughened beforehand to improve adhesion. It is quite wet to use, but once shaped it doesn't slump noticeably, so you can add texture to your initial layer for quite some time. I added an anti-slip tamp marking to part of my test patch with the edge of my knife, just to see how well it would hold it, and it has held its shape very well. Please bear in mind however that I'm hardly an expert diorama maker, and this is merely a quick test. The colour will change when the paste is dry, and lighten somewhat so you may want to adjust that with paint, washes or pigments, as concrete seldom stays just one colour after laying. If you are depicting new concrete however, you could quite easily leave it as-is because the colour is pretty much spot on. The dry paste is also very flexible, allowing me to flex the card so that the ends were parallel without any cracking or lifting of the concrete. Conclusion This is an excellent range of quick helpers to create dioramas for anyone from the novice to the expert, and they are easy to use, water-based acrylic so no noxious fumes, and it even smells pleasant and somewhat familiar. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of

  8. Hello! Let's to start my another MiG! This is very quality ProfiPack edition set (PE, masks included). First time, I'm start to learn paint nozzle: Cockpit:
  9. Hello! I need instructions for "Mig 31 BM 1/72 - Condor" model. I found some scans online but they are so low-quality that I can't read them even when I print or photoshop them. Is there anybody who can help me and scan the instruction in high resolution? Thank you in advance!
  10. Another completed model. One of my favorite planes. I plan to one day make MIG-21 in the colors of all the countries that used them. This is the fourth, and there will be more. Here's the picture, enjoy it.
  11. Hi guys, I have a old Hasegawa Mig 25 I'd like to build up as its pretty basic and shouldn't take me too long, but I can't find the correct paint colour for the interior. Any help would be appreciated
  12. I'm looking for something to use for radio aerials and biplane rigging in 1/72 scale besides my old invisible thread, and came across this elastic rigging line from Mig: http://www.migjimenez.com/en/accessories/608-rigging-fine-003-mm.html Anyone have experience with this stuff? It comes in 0.01, 0.02, and 0.03 mm thicknesses, which (if those measurements are correct) are all extremely fine, but it's kind of pricey at 4.50 euro for a 2m long piece. I'm open to other suggestions for 1/72 rigging line if there are better options out there as well. Thanks!
  13. Hello I am new to this site and this is my first post - so please forgive any technical errors in what may follow... I used to scratchbuild model aeroplanes when I was a kid. After many years of building 1/48 kitsets I decided to have another go a scratchbuilding the old fashioned way, just for fun. I am in the process of building a 1/48 scale Mig 15 bis from scratch (with one or two aftermarket parts to speed things up a bit). I hope you enjoy following along. I'm hoping to have the project finished early 2017. Here are the plans I am using - graciously provided by a well-known aviation modelling magazine. it's a good idea to photocopy the plans several times before you start - you will need plenty of copies. Note that this set of plans also came with an underside view - it's just not in this shot. I also have a few books and articles on this subject - but I'm definitely no 'rivet counter' so I'm not going to allow myself to get bogged down in too much research. If you like laser accurate models - look away now - this one will be 'good enough' and that'll be that! Note the presence of the cross section profiles on the plans- they are very important. I selected a good piece of wood - straight grain no knots - in this case very hard Jarrah from Western Australia, but I daresay any decent strong wood with a straight grain should be fine. I like to use hard wood - never balsa - because hardwoods hold any carved detail better, they provide much needed structural strength and are less susceptible to surface damage such as scratches and dents. Cut out the relevant drawings and stick em on. I used PVA glue; nothing fancy - but if anyone can suggest a better alternative I'm all ears. Carefully Cut around the paper profile using a bandsaw, you could use a fret saw but a bandsaw saves a lot of time. in this shot the side profile is cut but the wood not removed (note the scalpel blade stuck in the cut as a marker for the photograph- I don't remove any wood until both profiles are cut as it's much easier to run the bandsaw against a smooth surface and not the contour left from the first cut. I also leave surplus wood beyond the end of the fuselage (both tail and nose). This excess wood can be used as a handle during some of the subsequent work. After both cuts are made you have the rough shape, in both side view and plan view of a Mig 15 fuselage. It doesn't look like much at this point - but stay tuned - with a bit of luck it will get a bit better over time.

  15. Hey, I stumbled upon the image of a Mig-23 in what seems to be yellow primer the other day. This started me wondering whether this primer has ever been used on anything else then Mig-29s. I vaguely remember some images of a Chinese J-something in trials and some Suchois maybe. Does any one happen to have further reference images? Thanks! Cristian

  18. So... I've been trying to find a stockist of Tamiya Panel Line Accents, both black and brown, and MIG Streaking Grime in the UK that doesn't charge mouth watering prices. The prices abroad seem to be far cheaper (e.g. Passion132 do MIG streaking grime for just under €4 as opposed to over £7, but unfortunately you have to factor in shipping which then kills the saving). Then I had a thought; can I not just buy a tin of Humbrol gloss enamel and thin down as required? Are the panel line washes not just extremely thinned down ordinary enamel paints? If so, then I just need a tin of Humbrol gloss black 21 and gloss tan 9 for the two Tamiya panel line accent colours above? Does anyone know how to make an equivalent of MIG Streaking Grime?
  19. Hi all, After a long absence of model building, i finally got around to completing some builds. The Airfix Mig kit was alright though it wasn't the best. Constructive criticism welcome
  20. This really exotic MiG was intended to be the MiG-23, but the powerplant didnt work which also led to the first bail out at Mach 2.15. My model was featured in ModellFan 2015/09.
  21. Haven't posted in RFI for a while so I thought i'd pop in with my Academy 1/72 Mig-27 Flogger D It's a fairly basic kit and not the most accurate as I understand it but it was still enjoyable to build regardless and thats all that matters really, as long as it was fun to do and I'm happy to sit it on my shelf that no one ever looks at what more can I want! She was mostly built out of the box with the addition of a couple of resin OFAB-100's, a couple of resin UB-16 launchers and some minor scratch improvements to the seat/wheel wells, seatbelts out the spares box. Painted mostly with Vallejo paints. Build thread is here for those that like to read them: Photos:
  22. Hi, First Work-In-Progress build here so bear with me if the quality is poor Got this Revell 1:72 MiG-21 F-13 "Fishbed C" for just £2.00 at the Air Tattoo 2017 because apparently, they weren't selling well for the £8.00 asking price . Either way, it was a bargain so I bought it - and seeing as I have all the paints needed I can start work straight away. Box The three sprues (plus a clear sprue) were very nice (sadly I have no images of them before I got at them with my blades) in Revell's metallic-silver plastic. There was no flash apart from a large chunk on the exhaust that I easily removed with a cutting knife. The clear parts seem high quality - with the canopy being in two halves so hopefully I can model this with the canopy open. Sadly there is no pilot - as with all other Revell kits - so I'll need to try and do a decent job with the cockpit. There is a very small decal sheet lacking in detail from what I usually expect from Revell - however it's a 1:72 model so I guess it's understandable. There are options to depict one from the "Air-Defence-Garde-Regiment", USSR 1961, or one from East Germany (GDR), 1963. I will be modelling the USSR one I will hopefully model with the gear down also. So I hope you enjoy this build I guess... again apologies as this is my first time documenting a build - any suggestions for improvements would be greatly appreciated! Cheers, Adam
  23. One of my favourite birds of all times - there`s one in front of my primary school in Jarocin, Poland (the first picture below). I`m aware that my model is faulty in many aspects but this is the first time I`ve painted the whole thing using Alclads and Gunze metallic paints, also this is my first jet in more than 25 years... Trumpeter kit + Part PE, Montex masks, Master barrels, Billmodel decals.
