Agustin Prellezo Going on with this kit taking advantage of the Covid19 isolation. The model is a good quality Hasegawa but it has a very poor cockpit. So I used the Pavla resin cockpit. It has very fine details, but I always find very difficult to fit the resin to the plastic.
Agustin Prellezo Thanks, friends. It was hard to finish. It is an old Hasegawa model, I had to scribe the panel lines, modify the seat and the wheel wells... and at the end, the decals. They were very fragile and the white colour is yellowish. In summary, I do not recommend this kit.
James White I couldn't agree more. This is a lovely old "space-age" looking delta wing and one of my favorite planes. I am very impressed with the scribe work. That takes patience and precision and I've never pulled it off with those older raised panel line kits.

Agustin Prellezo I did my best but I think i will not scribe any more. It tooks too much time and, in my opinion, the end result i can get is never as good as a "factory scribed kit".
Agustin Prellezo Thank you, friends. If anyone has this kit in the stash, take into account that the antenna location is wrong. The kit hole must be filled and a new one opened. The canopy in the open position will tell you where to drill the new hole.

James White Oh, my. I had a deep gasp of wonder when I saw this. Astonishing! I'm so impressed by the weathering of the fuel tank and gear doors. May I congratulate you on your exceptional photography as well? I know this is no accident.

William O. I applaud you sir, you did an amazing job on this one, and I agree, your photography is up too stuff. Kudos mate!

Agustin Prellezo ???? thanks! For the weathering I first used ak paneliner, later brownish oil paints and ended with sand color pigments. And I did the photos on my kitchen table with my samsung phone. No extra lights, nothing special. Just take a lot and select the best ones. I recommend a light grey background.
Slavo Hazucha Sukhoi always comes with cool new camos on their prototypes & demonstrators (probably to conceal they are selling the same plane from 1985 on ) Gives us more options, I can live with that... Nice build & paint job!

Agustin Prellezo Thanks, Slavo. I agree with your comments about Sukhoi. Mig is doing even worse!

Andy Ball Striking scheme-was the kit a breeze to make?
Agustin Prellezo Thanks, friends. The kit is high quality. The joint in the back of the fuselage is not easy to adjust, and there are some delicate parts, but in general I agree with the comment that this is the best flanker at 1/72 in the market.
