Hey everyone, 

So I finally managed to get this MiG finished to a point where I am reasonably happy with it. It was for UKscalemodeller on Youtube's group build but I thought it would be worthwhile showing the process and the finished result here too! If you're quick I'm sure you could get an entry in if you wanted to. 


Here it is!

The camo was a time tricky to do. 4 tones, 4 post shades, 4 highlights. 12. Twelve. T w e l v e  colours. I can see why everyone goes with the natural metal finishes.

This came from the Zvezda tooling in 1/72nd scale...

It is actually a nice tooling for the price, crisp recessed surface detail. The packaging was a bit rough, everything thrown in the box inside another box without bags, decals and perspex and all. The only way the packaging could have been more Russian was if the kit came in a metal can :lol:

I should mention that the paint scheme I went for wasnt one in the box, I just spare decals to make it possible. 

 

The thread to the build I posted...

 

Lastly the video I put together, it shows the whole build in a hopefully in a fuller light than the build updates in the thread above. Hopefully this one doesn't get taken down like the Harrier's did. You can watch the video embedded here from Youtube. Hopefully the admins wont mind seeing as everything is here...

 


Thoughts?
Cheers!

Hi Murrodels:!

 

Congratulations for that wonderful job.

I have learned some new techniques that will be very useful in a project I am currently working, and will be looking for some products to try my hand embelishing the model building. Thank you verymuch for sharing!!

 I've even got the 1/32 Trumpeter kit, had it years. Such an interesting and important design in the history of aviation 😊

Good luck with a 1/32nd beast! It would be huge! It really is, such a timeless plane.

Fine build of an iconic Cold War aircraft. Nice to see a Mig 21 in the proper scale too.

Haha thanks man! I'd be keen to try one in 1/48th as well, would be able to pack a lot of detail into one that's that much bigger!

Very nice build and a great scheme

Cheers! The paintwork was a real b*tch to get right, glad you like it though!

Nice looking Fishbed, especially with the tricky 4-colour scheme.  Well done!!

 

Must dig one of these out of my stash ...

I would recommend it! It is a lovely wee kit, not with 4 tone camo, then its a horrific grind, a lovely kit but a massive chore haha. Thanks man! 


Sorry about the mother of all replies, been up to my neck in course work that I have pied the entire Easter holiday haha. 
Thanks for your kind words everyone!
