KlausH That´s a really nice work Michael! Congratulations!

I have the Revell kit on my stash. Do you have a link or shop where I can order the corrected nose?
19. June at 19:27:41
Michael Phillips Thanks Klaus!

Here is the CWS nose:

coldwarstudio.com/MiG-25%20RBT%20nose%2048%20scale.html

And the Fairy Hobby Nose can only be bought on ebay, but they go almost as quickly as they are put up for sale:

potez452 What a magnificent paint. I like so much the jet's exhausts. Congratulation. Which paint did you use ?
19. June at 22:11:11
Dave Flitton I think I saw the original airframe outside of Baghdad in 2004, it did not look pretty at all, they had removed the cameras and radar and the whole aircraft sat on its rear wheels, sad really

20. June at 20:38:41
Michael Phillips Thanks Holger, Donald, and James! I hope to be finished this weekend!

Got the exhaust painted and installed. Will add a bit more weathering and heat staining to them, but mostly they are done.

Greg Jones It has really come to life with the weathering, great job Michael! Can I ask, how did you weather the panel lines to give them the brownish look?
09. May at 22:17:07
Michael Phillips Thanks James, Erik, Michael, and Greg!

Greg, the brownish tint of the weathering is done by two different techniques. The wash I used, MiG Ammo Deep Gray, has a decidedly brownish tint. I remove it before it completely dries, so it gives it a bit of a brownish stain in some areas as I wipe it off in the airflow direction. But what really gives it some extra pop, with a bit of a brownish cast, is the Tamiya smoke. I spray that over random panels, sections, panel lines (not all, just randomly), and areas where dirt and staining would collect. Heavier in some areas, lighter in others. I also use heavily thinned Tamiya rubber black to simulate soot and other darker dirt areas, such as on the vertical stabilizer right above the horizontal stabilizers.

Hope this helps!
09. May at 23:40:06
Michael Phillips Got the bombs painted, and made a homemade ablative coating using Mr Surfacer 500 blotted on using a brush to give it that textured look. I will post pictures of that soon. I might possibly be able to finish up tonight, as I have a few hours to work on it tonight. Stay tuned!
09. May at 23:44:01
Michael Phillips Added pics of the bombs and the homemade Thermal coating. I actually made two too many bombs, I found out I can't fit a bomb on the insides of the TER on the inside pylon because of the landing gear doors, so I had to take one off each side. Oops! Lol
10. May at 05:35:09
Rex "Slant Two" on the inner pylons is just like in real life. So, your model will be realistic in that sense, Michael. Rule of thumb for 500# on Skyhawk inner pylons,,,,,,Slant Two for TER, Five bombs for MER, and there was clearance for 6 on the MBR. (the guy with his back to the door during loading was very uncomfortable, though.)
10. May at 06:36:05
Michael Phillips Thanks Rex for that great insider info! I love to hear about the real world anecdotes concerning any project I am working on. :)
10. May at 15:54:21
Tom Griffin Inspiring work, Michael. Very nice weathering. Thanks for sharing your techniciques. I learned a few things to try.
10. June at 14:33:14
Michael Phillips Thanks Tom, I really appreciate the kind words! I hope to see you post some pics of your progress on any of your projects on here. I am glad to hear you can take some inspiration from things I have done and apply them to your work. :)

Michael Phillips Off and running on the Tornado IDS! Got some work done on the cockpit today. First time using decals on the IPs. Turned out pretty nice I think.

Murad ÖZER Michael you do love your greys! :D
14. May at 08:42:25
Michael Phillips Haha, I sure do! This is my third gray one in a row... and my next one, the completion of my on-hold KH Fitter in Polish markings, will be the fourth. LOL

Hmmm, somehow I accidentally commented on the project instead of the new album. Doh!
14. May at 08:58:51
Bryn Crandell Looking good so far. It is amazing how much time we spend on cockpits only to close them up. Love it with larger scales so you can see the detail, and this has got some detail.
15. May at 17:03:18
Holger Kranich Will you make a german Tornado, Michael? Work on the pit looks already very nice! I´m curious if the complex kit will slow your building speed down, i bet it wont! ;)
15. May at 17:16:11
Michael Phillips Thanks Bryn and Holger!

Bryn, I hear ya! I really am not great at cockpit detailing, and I don't spend as much time on them as I should lol.

Holger, yep, this one will be a German IDS. Going to do plain old in-service jet. And you are not kidding about it being complex! I thought the ICM MiG-25 was complex, but this one is far more so. But I am plugging away at it. Just got the wings attached last night.
15. May at 23:52:16

Michael Phillips Thanks Augie! The pictures are actually all from before I went crazy with weathering. Eek!

Alistair, I feel ya on the Russky stuff, I am really into that right now. I love all jet aircraft, and the Tomcat is my favorite, but I do just love the bruteness and unique look of Russian Aircraft.

And yes, the Master Pitot is fantastic. It really is well worth the price and a great addition to the kit.
