The only Hungarian word I remember from a visit to Budapest 45 years ago is dohanybolt. I believe it means tobacco shop and it was there you could buy tickets for trams and buses. Luckily I could speak German with my Hungarian friend. And I saw Migs on August 20.

Łukasz Gliński
But have you seen any hovercrafts? ;)
That must have been a remarkable trip for you, to the other side of the curtain. Been there couple of times, before the bat plague, learned some words, but haven't seen either MiGs or hovercrafts :(

Daniel Mysak
Nice work on the two trucks and a great result with the green decals. Have you ever thought about a plotter to make masks and spray paint these markings instead of printing the camouflage color around?
25. November, 19:17
Thomas Kolb
Daniel, thank you! Yes, I looked at the Silhouette Cameo cutter, but it is just too expensive.
25. November, 21:08
Daniel Mysak
Okay, I purchased the Silhouette Portrait about a year ago, it´s perfect for this kind of stencils. Anyway, your solution with the decals works also perfect.
26. November, 13:43
Thomas Kolb
Daniel, what is the smallest size of cut that the Portrait can do? Would it work for this, like 2-3 mm stencils?
26. November, 13:45
Daniel Mysak
I did 4mm for my Oshkosh Tanker, that works fine. I think it will depend on the chosen font and the masking foil but 3mm should work anyway.

Ok, thanks, I might take another look!

Very cool looking & rarely seen Flogger version, and a perfect installation, especially the night pics!

There are moments when I think about some form of "base & background" for my kits, this definitely is one of them! :)

Thumb ups and handclaps, stunning work, especially the canopy cutting part. Those hand scribed panel lines scared me off from buying one though... (Still better than floggers from KP probably?)

Raphael, thank you! I will try to add as many details of the build process as possible. I recommend that you load up with filler before starting the kit, it certainly needs it.

Doing some back-pedalling to fix some issues before I continue... there are some serious fit issues with the ramp assembly, so I have decided to display it closed instead. A pity, but at the same time a relief, I was not too happy about the inside detailing anyway.

Got it, my references confirm that. It seems to be a longer version indeed
6. November, 17:36
Cuajete
Wow... I hadn't seen this job until now...
An amazing job so far, Thomas. I think my expectations to build a Mig-17PF from the Airfix kit have faded considerably :D
Following!
6. November, 19:29
Thomas Kolb
Cuajete, thank you! Yes, the MisterCraft kit is horrible even in small doses... But it is pretty obvious that Airfix has prepared for the possibility to produce the PF without a huge effort: all the subtype specific parts are nicely separated on the sprues. So I don't find it impossible that they will make one at some time.
7. November, 11:04
Bernd Korte
That's coming together nicely!
7. November, 17:30

Thanks, Thomas. I hope to Airfix release a PF version :)
In the meantime, I hope they see your amazing job and they fall in shame for not doing it sooner :D

Thanks to you all... I've been slowing down significantly with my builds lately for daytime job reasons, but I am trying to pick up some speed again to finish my ongoing projects. Pretty much everything is done except for the replacement vac-formed canopy (currently in transit from Hannants in England).

Łukasz Gliński
@Sergej: GX100 works with metals, depending on the metal probably. Haven't encountered any problems with Mr.Hobby SMs and Alclads so far.
29. October, 14:40
Thomas Kolb
I have never tried to sand it, although I have polished it with Tamiya Polishing Compounds a few times, and it worked fine without peeling. On the other hand, the Gauzy Glass Coat (the orange jar) does lift easily with masking tape. It can even be peeled off with a wooden cocktail stick (which can be a good thing if you don't get a smooth layer).
29. October, 14:44
Thomas Kolb
Łukasz & Sergei, how do you guys manage to get such a mirror finish with the GX-100? Are you applying multiple thin coats with waiting inbetween, or spray it on wet-on-wet?
29. October, 14:48
Łukasz Gliński
I spray generously thick layers of very thinned GX, so first it levels and then most of the thinner evaporates. But this can only be done over safe surface (e.g. enamels are excluded).
29. October, 14:53
Sergej I
Thomas, same as Lukasz. I thin it at lease 1 part GX, 5 parts MLT. Then apply wet (but not runny) coats, two usually.
I would wait some 10 minutes in between two coats, which is just finishing the full plane and refill on varnish.
If I need a glass-like surface I would "polish" it afterwards with a wet application of clean MLT.

But applying it wet to metals, it will eat them up in my case. And I can't have thick application of metals, otherwise black base has no effect...
I work with AK Extremes mostly, tested also Alclad Stainless Steel with same effect.
Have to check one last Gunze silver chrome...
29. October, 16:35
Thomas Kolb
Thank you both for your great tips! I think my mistake is that I apply the varnish too thick and do not thin nearly enough. For metal surfaces I find that Gauzy or Alclad Gloss works the best, but I have a few upcoming projects that call for a super glossy surface on top of acrylics, so I will give the GX a new test run.
29. October, 16:49
Sergej I
Thomas I normally open a new GX and pour it whole into a 50 ml dropper bottle, then add MLT until its thin enough, usually I'd fill the whole bottle. Add a steel shaker and good to go for a year or two, I don't need to mess with lid cups and measured thinning...
29. October, 17:55
Thomas Kolb
That, Sergej, is an excellent idea! :)

On the other hand they are not that high on my prio list ;)
17. September, 19:42
Thomas Kolb
Yeah me two, pretty much sold out everywhere now except one box each on the shelf of my local hobby shop here in Göteborg (I intend to grab them on Saturday). A pity really, they look like really fun-to-build kits.
17. September, 19:49
Erik De Smet
I might have the Heller version somewhere in my stash, but I cannot check it for the moment. I remember to have bought several Saab kits at the Linkoping museum shop some years ago. Can you compare the Heller and Special Hobby kits ?
18. September, 08:09
Thomas Kolb
Erik, I have never built the Heller kit, but I understand that it has raised panel lines, wheras the SH kits have recessed ones. Besides this, I think both are fairly accurate representations of the J-21A. To build the J-21R in 1:72, your only choice is really the SH kit, unless you are prepared to do a fair amount of scratchbuilding.

I wonder if it will have the exact same content as the old MPM box
12. September, 18:04
Thomas Kolb
Cuajete, by looking at online photos of the MPM kit, the SH looks exactly identical. The placement of the items on the decal sheet are slightly shifted around, but has the same content. If there are any other changes, I certainly cannot see it. It looks like a fun build.

What's the story behind the backround? Looks like some competition for my hangar ;)
29. July, 12:09
Thomas Kolb
Łukasz, thanks! Yes, the ground maintenance crew were waxing and polishing up the canopy nicely for the photo shoot... but they forgot to clean the aircraft itself... ;) About the background, no story really, just got a bit tired of not having a proper background for the photos except for a white wall.

Łukasz, yes I agree, they are really best for small aircraft and closeup photos. Maybe I should learn how to make a realistic diorama base. But I think your summer backdrop is actually quite nice.

Judging by the unassembled kit, it looks really neat, with a well thought out molding gate pattern and no particular flash. Some ejector pin parks here and there, but at hidden places. The interior is a bit sparse, but I ordered aftermarket stuff for it. The canopy is a one piece affair (closed), so I ordered a vac-formed open canopy. The decals look outstanding. It should be a pretty simple build really (but a rather ugly aeroplane).

Before doing anything else, I began with replacing the most obvious raised panel lines with my own scribed ones. I will definitely not replace every panel line, as a lot of them should actually not even be there. I expect this part to take at least a few weeks as it is really a slow and arduous task, but it is somehow strangely satisfying.

Regarding the orange - I have rather good experience with the Revell Aqua Colour from my Vampire project, maybe you could give it a try?

Bernd and Harry, I will try not to disappoint! :)
Łukasz, thanks for the tip! Revell Aqua is unfortunately not available from my local hobby shop, but I was told that Vallejo fluorescent orange would be a good match. Anyway, I bought a bottle of the Vallejo and also a jar of Acrysion Fluorescent Orange, and will test later which one is better. TBH, I think both look far too vivid, so I will probably need to fade them with white and yellow for a more realistic look.

@Erik, yes, I bought two kits to have some major spare parts in case I screwed up the first kit. As it turned out, I didn't need to sacrifice the second kit, so I will later try to build it as the regular C-version (the light attack version). I suppose it should be much easier, since I know all the pitfalls now.

I am still contemplating what to do with the panel lines on the model. They will obviously need to go as I cannot stand raised lines, but I cannot just leave the surfaces blank and lifeless. On the real thing, the surfaces have overlapping panels riveted together and also riveted to the frame, so the "panel lines" are in fact mostly rivet lines: thousands of really visible, protruding rivets! I am not sure I will be able to represent this with my rivet wheel tool as I cannot seem to be able to draw straight lines with the damn thing for my life. Just rescribing everything is also unrealistic, it would make the model look like an Excel spreadsheet. I guess I will have to test it on a mule.

Also I am still thinking if I should make a yellow or a green/blue camo version: both are really attractive. I guess I will do what I usually end up with: getting a second kit and build both.

I did the Sk.50 some month ago. I did the main rivet lines with the rivet wheel tool and Tamiya tape. And I think that is enough in this scale. ;)

What comes to my mind is a scotch tape and riveting tool. Haven't tried it on my own, but it's thicker than Tamiya.
Btw. Why does the yellow verion carry the roundels and civilian Id at the same time?

Harry & Łukasz, thanks for the tip - Harry, your SK50 looks stunning! :-D I think I will do the same, but probably use Dymo labeler tape as guide, or possibly electrical tape, which I am often using for panel scribing.
Łukasz, it is because it is withdrawn from service from the Swedish Air Force, and is now a privately registered civilian aircraft. I think this one belongs to the Aviation Museum at Västerås, but AFAIK it is still airworthy. There is also a camouflaged SK50 at my airport where I fly, it is registered as SE-KGZ.

It´s also possible to take some layers of Tamiya tape or an electrical tape. You better get into the curves and small areas then dymo tape.
