1/48 MiG-19PM Farmer-E

Recommended Posts

Following my MiG-15UTI and MiG-17F I've finished Trumpeter's MiG-19PM. The nose from the windscreen forward was replaced with a resin correction from SBS Model and the decals are by High Decal Line. The finish is Mr Color 8 Silver. Full story at http://jonbryon.com/MiG19PM.html.

Comments welcome

Thanks

Jon

Beautiful work. I must make a note of the Mr Color 8: It seems to work extremely well for simulating that Russian aluminium lacquer finish.

Stunning looking Mig-19 and excellent airbrush work with the elusive silver color! Btw,the ejection seat seems to be low,the pilot's shoulder should be level with the canopy rail.

Thanks everyone for the comments!

I love Mr Color 8, but I have oversprayed it with AMMO Satin varnish. Mr Color 8 by itself is very shiny, but I wanted a dull finish.

It's how it comes in the kit, but I make a comment in my write up that it looks too low. Something for others to be forewarned about!

I don't like putting ordnance on kits :) They slow me down...modelling time is precious enough as it is! And to be honest, I don't like to highlight the bits of planes that are the destructive parts (there's a quasi-pacifist in me somewhere!).

Very nice :) now it's time for mig 21?

Yep, a Trumpeter MiG-21F-13, then an Eduard MiG-21SM and MiG-21R. I've got the resin nose for a MiG-21bis (and some nice decals) but no kit yet! Then I shall tackle the Trumpeter MiG-23 and finally an Academy MiG-29. I have to pause my MiG building spree to make a Tornado for a friend first.

Thanks, but that is entirely down to the RG-3 airbrush. It's amazing.

Cheers

Upgrade to a GWH MiG-29, you won't regret it in the slightest.

Ahh, yes a superb airbrush... Hoping to get one at Telford! :) You've done it justice that's for sure.

Thanks again everyone :)

I'm sure I wouldn't, except that I've had the Academy with various resin bits and pieces in the stash for 10 years and am bloody-minded enough to press through and build it :) It's a kit with a reputation, but I'm looking forward to it ;)
