Very nice…very, very nice! The metal finish is superb.
By now the stencils are done on top, bottom and right side. Next weekend left side, then GX100 and satan varnish over it. Still a bit confused how much it should be weathered, I kindof like a clean MiG... but not too clean 😄
Looking awesome Sergej👍
Agree with Ja mes, looking awesome. I did not know Migs had so many stencils. It took me forever to put all of mine on.
Thanks James and Clifford. Hopefully Weekend brings the end to stencils.

Trying to get ahead of Roland 🙂
Wash done, next is matt, grime/grease/smoke, matt, then final assembly... a lot of work for one last day hehe...
Considering I managed to throw the damn plane on the ground today and rework on antennas and rear-wheel. Luckily Eduard keeps so much spares it's easy to scavange.
Oh yes, I also managed to grip the front end with a glove soaked in MLT. So additional gray and yellow painting and lacquering... 2020 end of year is loong overdue :/
Finished! Crude photos just to prove my deadline 🙂, will make better ones when day. I enjoyed the Gustav, for sure not my last 109-er.
Absolutely beautiful work there Sergej🙂 The tones on the upper wing are eye candy.
I missed the finish-line. Beautiful work mate 👍 Congrats!
Thank you Roland! I should make some better photos of this one, deserves better 🙂

Stash is on the way, trying to find some decent and not too expensive RAM masks...
Thank god the navy didn't give up its use of color on those jets, awesome subject! really looking forward to this one 👍
At least they got the make-up to look right..! 😄
Looking forward to your take at the GB as well as to see what the KH kit is worth - I saw the Meng box open, stuff looked all right in there, yet still no purchase followed...
Certainly not building the F-35 anytime soon myself, but happy to be a "loyal wingman" to your efforts!😉
Following for sure 🙂
Mail call today... the thing in 48th scale is silly huge lol... like a big clad of plastic, who would want to spend all the paint on that! 😄
Following! I have the KH F-35B and would love to see how the build on this one goes.
Count me in 👍
😄 Maciej - I haven´t seen the KH box specifically, but had a look at the Meng one in a store and thought - "oh, what a compact kit, is it really 48-scale?" 😄
Nice work mate! What colors did you use for the fuselage? Main color and raised panels?

Cool looking Cat Sergej.👍👍👍
Lovely clean and sharp build, It´s a pleasure to follow all the exact panel lines, light weathering and plethora of details, particularly in this (for me) unexplored and hostile small scale...😉 👍
Keep up the good work, seriously cool job here!
Thank you Slavo, praise from you means a world! 🙂
I just wanted to add my own admiration 👍 Stunning!

I agree with Nathan.👍
This story is as sad as the build is lovely (and my fav airliner too) 👍
Thank you mates.
All 176 people aboard the two aircraft were killed.
Lovely bird, fine painting work, especialy on metal areas.

Super clean work and good presentation! 👍
Pic 111 - Stolen Tomcat!!! - oh, it just moved over to the silver stage in a finished-build Album... 😄
Nicely done! Beautiful!
Fabulous- the "pretty Tomcat's phase" classically interpreted and beautifully executed!
Thank you everyone, for your positive feedback! 👍
