Palo M (Muro)

Bangladeshi Mig-19

A friend is from Bangladesh, so when I noticed it's one of the option in the model, it was the clear choice. Hope he'll enjoy the result.

I'm always disappointed how the first layer of paint clearly shows I didn't sand the seams well enough. This time, I tried to fill them with Mr Primer - to touch, it seemed smooth, but now I see there is more work to do.

Palo keep in mind that Mr Primer is shrinking as it dries, revealing the gap again. You will have to do it over and over (Filling - Sanding - Priming) until it disapears. Or try to use C.A. glue, medium or thick. It is much quicker as it dries very fast and its ready to sand and re-apply in no time.
Don't give up, you are in for a beautifull model!

Thanks for the encouragement, Cuajete and thanks for the tip, Gianni's - that explains! I got the idea to use primer (out of bottle with a paintbrush) from Plasmo on youtube, didn't realize it shrinks. I'll try some proper putty (water solvable), hope that will work. I don't like CA glue, but maybe it's a better idea.

Well, would you look at that! Thank you Giannis for telling me about shrinking Mr Primer and C.A. glue as a fix - worked beautifully! Smooth, for the first time ever! Thank you!

Lots of sanding on the wings, with KP making the unfortunate choice of wings coming in two parts, joining on edges.

Started with painting, fuel tanks and rocket pods still need to be assembled. The fuel tanks do not fit very well.

Going through the MiG´s with a system I see 🙂 I´ll join you on the 21 maybe, thinking about doing a MiG-21 in 2021... but not in this dangerous scale of course!

Underbelly looks pretty good already, but take care the bullets from the right-wing cannon won´t chip the nose!😉

Ha! I had trouble putting the guns in place, looks like it needs further adjustment 🙁

Fixed, by replacing with scratch built ones

Syringe needles are tight! 👍 I remember buying those in the 90´s in med-stores, me a young man then, the vendor looking at me like I´d be running a meth-lab or something, clearly doubting my claims the´re useful for scale modeling... 😄

Looking good, albeit the "one burst leader & wingman kill" look also had it´s merit...😉

Well, putting them there was super easy, barely an inconvenience. And looks better than before.

Camo is done, preparing fuel tanks and rocket launchers, but will weather it first.
