MIG-29C "White 44" Trumpeter, 1:72


Recommended Posts

 

It's been a while! 

 

I had a week off work so I've decided to spend the time the best possible way, that means doing some modelling! This is a very nice little kit by Trumpeter on my preferred scale (1:72) perhaps the only low was the decals but nothing too bad really.

 

I hope you guys like it and all comments are welcomed!

Did not know  that the Antonov airport housed MiG-29s

Thanks exdraken!, to be honest I'm not sure about it, I just copied the information in the colour scheme instructions ...

This level of weathering in 1/72 scale is amazing!

Wow!

Beautiful weathering.... 

Now I really want to learn how to achieve that kind of weathering effect in 1:72...

 

 

Cheers,

Regarding the weathering, the way I do it, is by applying everything locally, focusing on one area at a time, using good reference images, and avoiding overall washes. I do all the weathering with OIL paints following Michael Rinaldi's OPR approach. It takes longer but in my opinion the result are much better because you are always in control.

 

cheers guys and thanks for commenting,

Superb. Really good to see a Ukrainian '29 in the two tone camo, and the weathering deserves all the positive comments you have already received. Again; superb.

Nice build. 
 

Were the decals from the kit or aftermarket?.

Sorry for the late reply Ryan, No, the decals are from the kit and they were not that good, very thick and brittle...but with a little love and care (and lots of micro sol and mark softer) they work OK.

The rest of the Trumpeter kit is truly fantastic, so good that I got two other variants to build in the future.

 

Once again, thank you very much to all for commenting.!

 

cheers,
