Ahh, a weasel! Count me in ...
I have no idea about the phantom series, I can only differentiate between F and RF and I was considering a pahntom of the Luftwaffe, which was quickly discarded, the Eduard set has no side panels and the device boards are intended for an F4F, so everything in color . The brassin seats are one or two kits of their own, each seat around 50 pieces, but it goes well together 🙂
Though we see quite a few Phantoms, a Weasel is a rare sight. Following with interest!
"IN"! Off to a nice start 👍
Welcome on board, I hope my workbench creates as much relaxation for you as the construction for me 🙂 but enough eye training for today, the week is still long 🙂

Top result! 👍
Danke Neuling , solche Worte von Dir wiegen doch besonders , denn Deine Details im Modell und im Bild zu erreichen wird für mich immer ein Wunschtraum bleiben 🙂
Danke Jens, ich fühle mich da schon geehrt.
Great result, that's a beauty 👍
Thank you Roland 🙂 After the experience you need such motivating words and it helps to find a laugh again with the next model 🙂

Great job 👍
Thanks friends for the nice words 🙂
Jens , super Arbeit ! Wie ist die Passgenauigkeit ? Die Cockpitscheiben sind etwas krumm.
Great build Jens 🙂
Thanks Nathan, I'm very happy if I can convince you 🙂
@Dimian Passung ist okay, nicht so gut wie bei Fw 189 aber doch gut, die Schiebehaube des Piloten ist mit UHU Booster UV verklebt und hat sich wegen der Spannung auf einer Seite gelöst, der Booster haftet nur so gut wie die Grundierung 🙁 muss ich unbedingt nochmal was machen 👍

Eduard's MiG 21 MFN in 1:48 is on the runway, but I can't decide on a paint job Silver arrow or Vietnamese Dalmatian with green dots, the construction itself hardly poses any problems, you can see that the kit often looks the mold was made, but it should still be possible almost without a spatula
both will be beautiful, i am sure 🙂
Thanks Spanjaard, let's wait and see how the engraving and spatula will be, that decides then metal finish or green rock
My only known pain point on the Eduard MiG 21, the fuselage seam between the nose landing gear and the surface approach, I sanded a lot inside and tried but the gap could not be closed 100%, the fine engravings are made with acrylic spatula, which makes post-processing easier
Watching. I agree with Jens, the Eduard MiG-21 is like LEGO - perfect fit.
A primer with Gunze GX Black and a paint with Gunze Mr. Metal Color did not dry out after 3 days and a light sanding made it roll like rubber instead of the slight abrasion as desired, so the MiG 21 goes into a bath made of Dowanol and is as a whole newly painted

beautiful camo indeed.
Thanks Jens very helpful
Thanks Spanjaard and Alain, I'm very happy when the colors like it, the greatest fun for me while building
Love the markings & your mottling came out great 👍
Hello Nathan, thanks for the flattering words , With your last models you show very well what colors make, and what is more fun than hiding all your worries under color and then celebrating the success for yourself with the photos: - )

Impressive nuild! Well done Jens!
Cool .... and a great build 👍
Really well done.👍
Thank you colleagues for the nice words about the model, it was a lot of work and certainly I will never again take a Kitty Hawk jet on the workbench, a real disappointment in terms of quality and design.
Mighty Fine Bird I Must Say ! Pretty Colorful for the DDR ! Top Notch work !
I've heard Kitty Hawk are a bit hit and miss, I've got their F-35 Lightning II hope that isn't a putty queen.
@ Michael, spatula is needed, but that's not much, what annoying are the sprues, ejector like spigot, big big tap, the saber takes forever, some recording tap are just wrong, parts are looking for but in the end you do it yourself. ..., the rails of the rockets and tanks should be checked carefully, a lot of imagination and the glue dots are not always in the same places ......., really no fun for the money, but it's model making and not LEGO technology 😄
Excellent. Great Job
Don't know how I missed this one. Well done Jens.

the paint scheme looks just great 👍
Just please tell us it's a pre-cut masking set...😉
Looking great & sharp in the tiger pattern 👍
Hello Slavo, unfortunately I have to disappoint you, the masks from DN are made on Venyl like the first attempts at Eduard the masks themselves are only a 2 D cutting copy of a photo without considering the radii or openings, the adhesive force is right strong so there is a lot of reworking in the paint itself For you as a professional model maker, it is certainly a help, for beginners it is probably horror to work with
Fantastic job. The cammo sheme is superb

Can i ask. what did you think of the conversion set?
The quality is poor, the resin is poured very poorly, almost like a garage product, the construction is complex, the building instructions as CD have to be researched in parts, but it is also the only conversion in 1:32
Many thanks. I was looking into getting this. I have the Ju88 C6 Dayfighter resin conversion on order. I hope it's better quality
It is made in Hungary, I still know the 1:48 conversion of the Ju 388, also a lot of work, the parts are very, very poorly cast, even Paragon or Verlinden delivered better quality 30 years ago, I had to with the Ju 188 The rudder unit was re-engraved, the MG turret was only partially included as PE, the weapons were soft as rubber and have been replaced by Master Model brass, but I will also make the 1:32 Ju 388, just now I know what to expect

Me and hair ended our partnership many years ago, so I'm not very practised at cutting hair. 😄
Thanks very much for taking the time to explain the process Jens. The next time I have a go at mottling I'll give it a go. Although I suspect that most of my problems are because I haven't the patience to get as good a result with an airbrush as you are able to.
Lovely 262 Jens
Great looking Me 262 Jens.👍
Thanks friends for the comments, that of course makes the next project a lot easier

Ahh the poor fkrs hope they are all ok & it allows them to keep trading 👍
Just how shit can this year get?
@Munkyslut 11 days left so don't make it a challenge😉
Unreal. Below is a link to a Czech news article, hopefully online translation will work. It seems that the inventory damage exceeds the initial estimate, but it apparently could have been worse (space below where the fire started was saved). Electrical problem is thought to have been the culprit. There was one person with smoke inhalation issue, but otherwise no one was hurt.
Holy crap! That is some serious black smoke...

I got this kit for the Centennial+50 (I was born in Canada back when the Red Ensign flag flew). I have not yet got the nerve up to build it. Only got as far as admiring the sprues and decals. I see you have taken on the one thing that holds me back and that is to remove the seem on the canopy. I actually ordered another clear sprue from Kinetic via Lucky Models in case I F' it up. Also thinking of getting a 2nd set of decals also just to be safe. I have been watching your build. Cheers.
Thanks Robbi, my suggestion for the canopy, get yourself an Eduard MiG 21 (there were also in Canada). Eduard always has 3 versions of canopy that you don't need, you can practice on them because of the decals I have don't worry, Leading Edge offers a very good replacement, or I simply use other Canadian markings, also from Leading Edge, because the Canadian special markings are simply the most interesting ones that can be found on the CF 188 / F18
I don't worry about decals and canopy, I have been looking for the perfect red for a long time and hope to have found it
I´ll take a late seat, really interested to see this paint-scheme done! 👍
Cool subject, watching as well!
I follow too! Cool colour scheme you have chosen here 👍
I think you indeed found a spot on red, very nice progress!
Man Jens, missed this totally...very wel done so far, respect for the red paint very nice and tight!
Thank you colleagues and welcome on board After a long search I got a relatively inexpensive care, a plus for the canopy but also training money when it comes to the clear coat, I destroyed with some decals through the paint, only the simple orange maple and easily replaced by a Model Master Orange and some Tamiya tape, but still tuition in terms of paint the hull quickly had its color without much worry, the small parts and rudders are like dust catchers and so is the vertical tail before the decals bathed in Dowanol a good 15 times and freshly varnished ...., but slowly it comes to the larger decals and the alignment is again something that requires more than just calm and patience
quite some decals to do 👍
A battle of attrition... gain some ground, lose it the another day, counterattack in the morning... 😄 Keep up the heroic effort, it's moving on nicely 👍
nice progress indeed, very eye catching 👍
The red Diva CF 188 has a forced break, a commissioned work simply takes priority

Well done Jens, this looks great!
Interesting paintjob on this BIG bird. Well done 👍
Well done Jens, and kudos for persevering with a difficult conversion 👍
Thanks Thomas, Rui S and Alec K, it was really my hardest project so far, and it took the most time, I was often about to give up, some days I didn't want to see it, but who has the Ju 188 in scale anyway 1:32, and I honestly say, after a few days I'll think of AIMS again, without the Vacu pulpit Mistletoe 2 and 3 are giants too
Hi Jens.Just had a look on Hannants website Revells new 188 has the same camo as yours,they say copying is the best form of flattery well done
