Airfix 2009 Tool 1/72 MiG-15 -ish

Recommended Posts

My take on the Airfix 2009 tool sorta-MiG-15; I say that because when you put it next to the Eduard kit the differences are very apparent. It looks nice enough in isolation though. I added an Eduard photoetch cockpit set, but you can't really see much of it in the photos. This kit was a would be victim of the hardwood floor monster (closely related to the carpet monster), who conveniently rematerialised the canopy, which I had dropped earlier, directly underneath my foot. Fortunately, I have a second copy of the kit and was able, after much swearing, to smash-form a suitable replacement. Eduard masks greatly simplified the task of masking the wheels and canopy.

 

Update: The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that I installed the inner gear doors on the wrong sides. Well-spotted, and now, after more cursing, they are fixed!

Worth the swearing I think! Very nicely finished. Makes a change to see a non Soviet colour scheme

Whatever you do,don't let them crossbreed!

Nice to see it (The Mig not the floor) in Hungarian camo marks rather than the silver norm.

That's come out rather nicely - as Scimitar wrote it's good to see one of the lesser seen WarPac colour schemes.

Sweet !  That looks really nice and I like the finish very much.  The swearing seems to be part of the 'fun' in modelling I find !  Thank you for the post.

Modeling = creating new language especially when the carpet or glue monster gets involved

Heaven help us if the carpet monster breeds with the glue monster; we'll never get any of our lost parts back.
