Well after the dr surgically removed the seat in the kit I painted up the resin replacement and think it looks ok.


I have also glued the wings and the fuel tanks ( lots of dry fitting and nothing is really amiss ( there maybe a little filler here and there but heho that's modelling.


About to seal up the two halfs


Cockpit was a dream to put the pe in once sanded down smooth. The rear of the cockpit tub was cut away to insert the resin seat,and I was thinking about putting a blank in there of plasticard but there is an apron that goes over the cockpit for the canopy to sit on and so this seals any gaps..... Result


Weapons bay was simple two colour Hellgrau and Anthracite but I'll try and spruce this up with some dry brushing and do some wiring too near the undercarriage as I have a wide selection of ref pics to use


The front nose air intake has a splitter and in the instructions it said part 33 attach to this but could I find part 33


Well I never thought of looking in the clear parts??


Pretty much a simple case now of adding the rear jet nozzle


Oh weights it says to add 20g so I got to 50 just to be sure it's no tail sitter


Oh and the weapons turned up today


Pics and comments welcome

Going great guns Robert, make sure that extra weight doesn't over stress the nose gear.
Glad you said that as I actually took it down to 35g as I had an after thought

Small wee update


Well got postie this morning posted yet more stuff for the Mig 15 build but a vital tool for other builds ( my rivot maker )


I got Hannants to send me a set of decals for Russians in Korea part 1 IMHO this is a great decal set because it gives correct placing of engineering decal placements other than kits decal placement that can sometimes be confusing.


From John SMS he's sent me 4 pots of metal cote for the painting NMF ( I've had a few tips from papa on how to obtain this finish so wish me luck.

Well there are 4 rivot wheels and I believe looking at the style the larger the gaps would be for larger scales IE D wheel looks very simular to 1/48 where as A looks simular for 1/72 if not smaller in scale.


I'm thinking of doing a review and at £5 it's a very useful tool


Regards


Robert

I like all the extras your throwing at this build Robert, love that quickboost seat those master cannons are always a welcome addition. I reckon my Korean build is gonna be my first out of the box build as certain third party extras just don't seem to be available for it but to be fair I was looking for a quick build at some stage.


Your cockpit is looking nice and I'm tagging along on this one now.

Right been busy with work a lot so not much time to get in the table and work on projects but now I've got a few days to myself.


Well the fuselage was put together and there's a nice amount of weight in the front so balancing on your hand she's defo a nose sitter now. The centre seam was very ugly and took a lot of squadron green and eventually ran out so went with humbrol filer. I lost a few panel lines but I've now rescribed them back in.


I now have to use my new rivoter to get the roots back.


Wings on and correct alignment of wings and tail unit and as you can see from the pics there's a wee gap to sort out each side. I may try a new idea I heard about.( I have some small syringes ( no needles ) and I heard of mixing humbrol filler with humbrol thin glue and making an almost thinner paste to fill the gap.? Anyone heard of this ??


Or I may just go in with squadron white.


I have been going at the whole frame with 12000 grit to get the seams all smooth ready for the gloss black Vallejo surface primer for my NMF hopefully get her primed Saturday

Still a little ways to go before that but I'm hoping to get some serious time in over the next few days

Diluted filler works well so long as you get the right components. I would try it on a test piece first to make sure it sets ok. It may still sink however so let the first application fully harden then add a bit more to fill the sink.
