Very nice camo 👍

Almost done with the MiG-21.
Sorry, I forgot to take more pictures during the building process.
Paint is on, as well as the first layer of gloss coat and decals.

I am not that happy with the colours of the two-tone camouflage. It's rather dark and the contrast is not as high as I first intended to.
But I won't repaint it due to lack of free time. I'd rather finish this project take a short break and start the next one.

The kit itself is great, lot's of parts and details but I had some real problems glueing both halves of the fuselage.
Maybe the alignment of the engine was not correct as I had to use a lot of putty to fill the large gaps on the underside of the fuselage, which is strange for a kit with such great fit. On the topside I used the spine of the aircraft to hide the gaps.

The mig looks great from here, just a bit dark. You did the same ac I planned to build from the kit. Will take care when aligning the engine, thanks for the early warning

You may be right about the camo colours being a little dark, but otherwise it's a great looking build 👍
16. May, 17:08
WhiteGlint
Thanks Roland, Jan and James.
I'll upload more pictures when I made some progress. Hopefully I get my mojo back fast for all those other decals. There are a lot of them.
Hopefully there is some nice weather once it is finished. It's been rainy and dark the last few days, not the best conditions for a photo op. Pictures under natural light are the most beautiful.

Even though aircraft of my favourite subject, I really hate adding hundreds of little decals for warning signs, etc. but in the end it is really worth the effort, as I could see on my Su-57.

Or I could stick to WW2 aircraft as they don't have that many decals. 😉

Looking forward to your MiG-21, Jan! 👍

Wyvern, please!
2. May, 17:25
WhiteGlint
Thank you very much for your kind words, mates! 🙂

The Wyvern is definitely on my list, already waiting in my stash to be freed from its cage.
Not sure when I will unshakle the beast, though. It's a pretty large aircraft compared to the other 1:48 scale planes I built.

There are many kits I am eager to build and I have far too many kits in my stash, it is really hard to decide what to build next.
Space to display them is also becoming an issue. It already is, to be honest. 🤔

I'll try some digital camo again in the future, but next time I have to make it easier and more accurate. I had to cut a lot of masking tape.

Disaster struck. Gloss coat reacted to my gloves, I believe and created some heavy chipping... At least the coat is nice...

Welcome aboard, mates 🙂
Except for the black anti-glare in front of the cockpit the colours are done.
After that is applied and some necessary corrections are made I will apply the gloss coat.

I prepared some plasticard where I will test my decals first, before applying them to the aircraft. Can't wait to put them on the Flatpack, hopefully they are okay.

So far the kit was quite nice. It does not have many parts but its details are good in my opinion. The cockpit is somewhat simple, though.
10. April, 13:38
Maciej Bellos
Nice to hear the kit is ok. I had some thoughts to build it together with the T-50, but made a pass on it. I'll see later on. I intend a what if with it.
10. April, 15:34
WhiteGlint
Disaster struck as I applied the gloss coat. Looks like the colour and/or gloss coat somehow reacted to my vinyl gloves I use all the time when spraying paint.
First time I used die Tamiya TS-13 spray can.
Was quite happy with the paint job.... Need to let it dry and see if I can fix this somehow.

At least the coat is smooth and even, which is nice. 😄 👍
11. April, 09:25
Łukasz Gliński
Too bad, luckily it's on the underside.
11. April, 12:40
Maciej Bellos
Bummer... Still, you and we learnt something. Vinil gloves and Tamiyasomething should form close encounters😉
11. April, 13:21
WhiteGlint
Yeah, bummer indeed. As Łukasz said, luckily it's on the underside.
I'll let the jet sit for a few days. In situations like this one it is best to put the model away for some time and consider one's options.

Everytime I tried to fix something like this immediately I made it worse. I will probably sand the biggest area carefully and apply some more grey, after that another gloss coat.
Should I use the Tamiya coat again I will not touch it until it has dried for an hour or more...

Maybe I'll start another project in the meantime.

Great combo - funny thing is this actually looks very much like some of the post-Flanker - pre-Felon Russian paper-Stealth-fighters! 👍
19. February, 23:22
WhiteGlint
Thanks Konrad, Roland, Maciej, Clifford and Slavo. Much appreciated. 🙂

@Maciej: I am not sure about additional decals, as in my mind the project is sort of completed.
My goal was to fuse these two aircraft to create some hopefully cool looking fighter and to get some experience with cutting and Milliput.
But maybe you are right, why stop there? 👍
This bird should receive some decals, ordnance (shouldn't leave those pylons empty) and some light weathering.
20. February, 08:40
Sarunas D
That's an interesting idea. I'd like to do a kitbash myself, inspired by Arma 3 near-future jets, like the F/A-181 or the To-201, https://arma3.com/dlc/jets.
20. February, 10:40

20. February, 17:08

@Sarunas
Yeah, F/A-181 and the To-201 are cool jets. The F/A-181 is a mix of the F-22 and the Super Hornet, while the To-201 looks like a Su-57 with Mig-29 wings.
You should definetly try kitbashing. It can be both frustrating but also a lot of fun.

@David
That's right, I used a Su-57/T-50 kit for this project. The other one was Italeri's F/A-18E.

Thanks everyone. 🙂

Put it on top of a piece of plexiglass so it literally looks like hovering 😄
28. January, 08:14
Slavo Hazucha
alright... 🙂
28. January, 09:16
WhiteGlint
Maybe I'll try that, Sarunas. 😄
The other idea I have is to place it on one of those transparent flyer bases like they are used in Warhammer 40k or I have seen on Dioramas with flying aircraft.

First there needs a lot to be done with this tank. Especially the lower hull.
I need to close the hull where there tracks would have been. Not sure yet how I will approach this.
And a lot more to be filled and sanded.
28. January, 12:02
Slavo Hazucha
or you could make it actually hover using a magnet-setup... just saying...😉 I´ve actually seen a 40K Eldar dio with this gimmick somewhere...

28. January, 12:42

Magnets sound really intriguing. Could make for a very cool diorama if done right.

Thanks for all your interest. I hope I don't dissapoint.

Today I recieved the magnets I ordered some time ago.
They are a bunch of neodymium magnets with different holding force (is that the right term regarding magnets?). I hope they are strong enough for the result I am aiming for.
Still, as long as it hovers I'll count it as a victory.

I think I found the 40K Eldar diorama Slavo was talking about. It used a ring electromagnet. I really like that dio, but for now I don't want to buy an electromagnet as I try to keep the costs low.
Right now I am trying to buy some furniture for my new man cave, to finally get the workbench out of the basement. 🙂

Next I need to find the right way to position the magnets on the ground of the future dio and inside the tank. Positioning the magnets in a ring around the tank is probably the best way to avoid it slipping from the magnetic field and keep it hovering in one place.

Also it still looks too much like a Gepard. I feel like the hull needs some more modifications.

Looks great! How did you thinned polyurethane varnish?
24. January, 20:49
WhiteGlint
Thanks, S M. 🙂
I mixed the varnish with tap water, roughly at a ratio 50:50 (tap water : varnish) using a 0,5mm needle an about 1,5 bar pressure.
It sounds really simple now, but it took me quite some time to find the right mixture.
The right needle was also important. Most of the time I used a 0,3mm or 0,2mm for the varnish which I also used for often when applying colours. The varnish was just splattering around.
Instead of thinning it even more I finally got the idea to use another needle, which did the trick.
I suppose it is possible to get an better and more even coat but I am slowly getting there.
