As the Battle of Britain Day approaches thought I'd get round to doing a small tribute to all the pilots inc the Polish, although I doubt it will be finished for the 15th.

Question. How much weight did you have to stuff into the nose and where did you put it?
14. July, 22:54
S B
Paul
If I recall about 15g, just be careful of placement I failed to notice when I creamed it in I'd prevented the halves from joining so had to remove and try again!
15. July, 08:40
Alexander G.
That is an awesome solution for the concrete baseplate, very nice

The MiG is great too btw!
15. July, 09:58
Clifford Keesler
Awesome Mig, very well done.
15. July, 16:25
Paul Choudhury
Did you have an trouble with the alignment and fit of the completed three-cannon assembly into the underside of the nose section? Mine just doesn't line up right and I'm trying to figure out a solution.
23. July, 17:38
S B
Paul
It was always my intention to have the gun assembly lowered for maintenance so I acutually never tried to fit it in. Not sure how far the cannons pop out, could you try fitting a portion of them sticking out after fixing the outer panels in place?
It's the same with the rear I was always going to have the engine exposed so never had to Aline the rear to the front.
Hope you find a suitable solution
24. July, 05:34
Roland Zenhorst
Veryt nice, the Mig is a fine looking aircraft and yours looks absolutely great. And i will be borrowing your idea for the base. Looks absolutely dead simple and very convincing!

In the flesh it looks like the use of yellow over white then the orange is the best. Although in the photo I like the orange straight on the primer.

For what appears to be simple kit it caused a few problems. Prob down to my skills rather than the kit. The wings and tail plane just did not want to stay on. It's time to move on and just leave as is with all the issues on show

Help needed
I’m looking for a source of good aircraft concrete hardstanding photos to use as base of model photos. Ideally free source but quality commercial kits considered. Preferably in 1/48 scale.
Cheers for your help.

Hi Sybar,

Noyes Miniatures do a good set of paper ones usually run about £30
Costal kits do ones printed on foam.. usually around £20 on ebay.

Freeones are out there but you have to consider printing etc.. which can be as expensive (from own experience of making own and having them printed.

Hi, that metal finish is beautiful and I'm very keen to try it on my p47. I'd love to know your method for applying the foil. Do you precut the individual panels and how is it stuck to the plastic? Does the model need to be treated with anything before and after the foil?
17. November 2019, 17:58
S B
Hi sorry for the delay.
I didn't treat the plastic and I used micro scale industries metal foil adhesive. It looks like pva but not sure what it is but it works. I used cheap foil as it tends to be thinner and that's a good thing. I tend to do each panel separately or two to three in an area just to enable some variation. I cut the foil roughly to required size with a new blade on a piece of glass, cutting mats are too soft. I then apply the glue to the foil, leave it to dry a little (as per the instructions) then place it on the model. Gently smoothing from the centre of the panel to the edges and use a cocktail stick to define the panel edges. Finally using the nice sharp blade I run along the panel lines to remove the excess.
I would then choose a different area of the model to do the next set of panels giving each area more time to fully cure. Doing different areas allows for variation, foil has a grain and you can rotate the foil to give contrast also each side of the foil is very different so mix it up a bit and see what you like. You can also darken the foil by boiling some with egg shells in a pan of water ( wouldn't recommend using your best pots for this) this can give nice engine metal look.
Once you have the glue it's quite cheap but a little time consuming, although I found it relaxing.
Oh you can paint over the foil too, for anti glare etc and it chips very easy for real effects.
Have fun
