Great model

I have this one in the stash. How was the  Micro Mir like to build?

I've started mine, going to do the grey/green camouflage colours instead.

Just hope it turns out as good as this. Seems to need a lot of filling....

 

Can we get a look at the cockpit?

Cheers guys.

 

Not an easy build but a bit of time and effort can turn out a great model.

 

Just watch out for the cockpit roof panel, it can be a bit tricky, as can the wing joins.

Looks good, but I have to ask what the black grim is for?

Good work! I am currently struggling with the S&M Canberra B.6 which is AFAIK the same kit at the base and it is not an easy build.

How did you make these vertical stripes inside the canopy (it's a heating device, I think)? At the moment, I am experimenting with various ways to reproduce this detail.

Here is a pic of the real aircraft to show how dirty the real one did get. The soot was caused by the cartridge starters.

The vertical stripes inside the canopy were made with self adhesive aluminium tape.

Very nice Canberra, I like the dirt and weathering. The T.17 is on my wishlist. I builded the swedish version from AMP, same sprues as the S&M and yours. With some patience it goes together really well.
