TOPIC: Doc' COF VII - Iraqi MiG-15 UTI

Doc' COF VII - Iraqi MiG-15 UTI 19 Sep 2019 12:10 #1

Hi there,

Another COF (I told you I wanted all the ribbons for this campaign). This one is a Little gem, I love this airplane and I have read many good things about the kit.

This is the Eduard 1/72 MiG-15 UTI with a lot of PE, including Flaps and some outside ladder and chokes.

The airplane is a Trainer of the Iraqi Airforce near Baghdad in 1988. I am guessing it was destroyed in the first gulf war.

I hope you like it. I am looking Forward to building this.

These are the first Pictures:



Cheers

Alex

Thanks Bob and Christian,

I really enjoy These Little bugs, the MiGs-15. Eduard still lacks a bit on the detailing of the model but they make up for on the PE.

Things have been hectic but I got some more assembly done. Lots of adjustments, specially in the Flaps area (as usual).

In any case, the Progress:

Hi Friends,

Back from a rather Long unwanted pause (work related), some Progress on the MiG-15. Assembly is ready and all the PE got together. Shame I could not get a smoother finish, I guess with brush painting I will never be able to do that. Oh well. I will soldier on. :soldier


Cheers

Alex

Well, This is how you royally screw up a model and try to save it.

I went on for the painting and somehow the Dilution was not working well. I kept pouring paint and paint and... disaster. The Thing looked thick as wool. :bangs head :bangs head :bangs head

I had to scrap the whole paint down and I will let it dry a few days before trying again.

Very frustrating.

Cheers

Alex

I'm not sure if the smell of alcohol bothers you .

91 % alcohol and Q tips will remove most everything and dry in an instant.

Hi everyone,

So sorry for having been missing the last 5 months.

In any case, I wanted to finish this chapter here and so the Pictures of the MiG-15 after the new painting and finished. I am quite happy with the final result. I hope you like it too.

Cheers

Alex

You really did some great work on this kit and it shows. I like your color choose as its a nice departure from the normal natural metal as usually seen on these.
