Afternoon all,

 

My latest off the bench, as my Russian theme moves into the jet age, is the lovely 1/72 MiG-15 from Eduard. This is the Profipack edition finished completely OOB; fit was a bit tight in areas so a bit of filler here and there, but generally it was a problem free build. Finished using Hataka Orange Line and Aclad lacquers- I've always been a bit scared of the unforgiving nature of natural metal finishes, so thought it was about time I gave it another go. My inability to achieve a flawless surface finish is highlighted more than usual, but generally I'm pretty pleased with the outcome.

Looks great to me. Working on an Eduard Mig-15 myself, as you say the kit is great but the fit being so precise makes any errors you may make even more punishing. I doubt my finish will look as good as this.
