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.

Jens
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

Man Jens, missed this totally...very wel done so far, respect for the red paint very nice and tight!
16. July, 05:23
Jens
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 :)
17. July, 16:00
Thomas Bischoff
quite some decals to do

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

arne vd burg
Already looking very nice. How is the overall fit of the icm kit?
3. June, 19:54
Jens
Hello Arne, the fit of the parts to each other is very good but when assembling the cockpit and engine section you should adjust the lower part without covering the sides. Connection from A14 to F11 and cockpit, with parts C 5,6,7,8 and C 23, 24 you have to fill small gaps
3. June, 21:56
Megan Harris
Awesome! How do you achieve the realistic metal effect on the rear end? The heat stains and different shades?
3. June, 22:35
Jens
Hello Harris, the metal colors are with Gunze
Mr.Metal Color and Alclad Metal lacquered as base colors, so there are color differences in iron and aluminum, the "burns" are additionally "lacquered" with Alclad tempering colors e.g. with this hot metal sepia https://ds-design.de/alc416-metal-sepia/p-13042.html

24. May, 01:09

Thanks Thomas :) yes, the Academy CH 46 is quite easy to build, but I also like to look at original pictures, the construction plan is a bit incomprehensible and the position of the parts or the necessary holes are not always clear, we are probably too as model builders very spoiled ;)
24. May, 06:33
Thomas Bischoff
looks like you built too many Tamiyas ... lol :)
24. May, 18:23

There weren't many Tamiya, but I should urgently have a new pair of glasses, it is still fun and perfect or I never wanted to be ;) so the basis is right again :)

What kind of varnish is there on the metallic paint, if any? :)
16. May, 12:16
Jens
Hello Treehugger There is no extra paint on the finish, only the mixture or layers between Alclad and Gunze Mr. Metal, the dark tones are with steel paint from Mr. Metal, the rivets are washed again with black from the school paint box
16. May, 13:00
Treehugger
It looks dirty, but somehow it looks like metal and I like it.
16. May, 15:06
Jens
Thanks Treehugger, it was my intention to make it look old and out of order, Su 9 on duty were a bit more neat and if I like it, I'm also happy with the new technology to create patina :)

Slavo Hazucha
Top job Jens! Yet I am clueless - do you work in some time-warping-capsule or how did you manage to go from "some work on the instruments panel" to "finished model" that quickly...? And what a finish, it really is a looker

Were the GWH decals a topic, or did I raise false alarms? Would like to know, there is a GWH kit on my ToDo list... ;)
30. September 2019, 18:54
Jens
Thanks for the compliments :) It is happy and motivated for the next model: -) @ Slavo, I do not have a time capsule, but once I'm sitting then I stick with it. The GWK kit has a very simple blueprint and you have to check many things 3 and 4 times if the position is right, the fit can convince, but I also have a lot to replace with Eduard, the seat of brass is of course a great for themselves. The decals are relatively thick and not 100% faithful to the scheme, but this is in the digital pattern, the Gunze Gunze Mr. Color C 305 FS 36118 is ideal for mending and color accuracy, otherwise Micro Sol creates the bad corners on the model
30. September 2019, 19:45

Very nice work on this, the base is great as well! I hope the slovaks paint their new vipers the same way :)

Wow nice Mig Jens.I got the same kit in my stash, hope it will turn out as good as yours .
Did u use the decals or a paint mask for the didital camo?
16. May, 10:05
Jens
Hello Arne :) Thanks for the compliment, and I firmly believe that your MiG 29 AS will be much finer than I could ever show ;) The digital samples are all decals from the GWH kit, with a little Micro Sol that was quickly done :)

A small box with very tightly cast parts in short run quality of the better kind.
The construction plan is confusing, the parts with a lot of burr and without any information about the colors of the details, but everything fits together well :)
4. May, 20:30
Thomas Bischoff
Comes along nicely
9. May, 16:26
Jens
Hello Thomas, there are certainly better kits, especially as far as the construction instructions are concerned, the fit is quite good for a short run model, the PE parts also bring some life into the cockpit, but some things have to be considered for a long time until the construction makes sense

Alexander Perov
Well then why didn't I write my email
28. April, 07:55
Jens
Flap to monkey dead, okay, the IL 28 has a lot of window space, all the entrances remain open, so the inner life is meaningfully upgraded with PE particles, unfortunately, the further fit shows the bad fit of the parts, you should in All construction stages dry fit in advance, not only the parts in the step of the assembly instructions, check 5 steps in advance what fits and where it should end up in the end, the grinding itself is nothing big, but the maintenance flaps and rows of rivets have to be re-engraved , otherwise the hull remains pretty naked and under the metal finish that would be almost a death sentence for the model itself .......
29. April, 17:41
Jens
I put my IL 28 aside for the time being, it is enough for me at the moment with sandpaper, the sink points described in the reports at the direct connection points on the wings I still gritted my teeth, but, with the first layer of aluminum polish, there were sink points along the entire length of the wings to show up, top / round connections, that robbed me of all my lust at the moment ....
2. May, 13:31
Augie
Looks like I might have to attempt the Hpm one after all :(
2. May, 15:03
Jens
ohhh yes Augie that would be an investment that you would certainly regret less frightening, even if HpH is not free of errors, but still freed from the many hours of grinding dust, even if it is a resin model ...
2. May, 15:39
Nathan Dempsey
I plan on doing mine in Nigerian markings and camouflage. Hopefully that will hide all the putty needed.
2. May, 16:36
Jens
Hello Nathan, it will be easier but it will not be possible without a spatula, some reworking is required on the vertical tail to the fuselage, the surfaces should be adjusted dry, it is simply not Tamiya and unfortunately with such modern new shapes it is also very much manufactured without expertise (mold making)
2. May, 19:28

I have the Hpm already.. its enough to scare me.. but I have powertools now so maybe not so bad,

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 :(
