Very nice…very, very nice! The metal finish is superb.

Sergej I
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👍

Clifford Keesler
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.

how's this one doing Moritz? The work so far is too good for this model to never to see the light of day. The bang seat is absolutely stunning! One of the most realistic I've ever seen in this scale.

Roland Gunslinger
I agree with gorbygould 😉

Thx mates, but this build seems to be my cryptonite.
Every time I head back on this, something unespected happens. I hope to come back on this soon

First participation in a 'contest', first natural metal finish, so wish me luck 😀.

I'm not sure if it is gonna be one from Russia, Poland or Yugoslavia. But surely an out of the box build with some scratchbuilding.

Comparison Eduard/Quinta Studio. Albeit not really cheap, you get some really beautiful (and complete) stuff from Quinta...

Rather big difference in sizes. VEB kit is true to scale, Tamiya kit not. I've also hand brushed two coats of Gunze Silv...

Following. Maybe it's TT 1:120? 😛

There are seemingly multiple interpretations of having fun 😉 But nice to see that an old kit being build. Courage 👍
20. May, 13:14
Julian Herrero aka Yuri
Well ... I do have fun with these old kits ... kits are meant to be built .... don't they ?

Rui Da Silva
1:100, Yikes! I'm struggling to see the parts on the 1:72 MiG I'm working on now.
30. May, 07:31
Julian Herrero aka Yuri
I'm rather shocked about the big difference in size between Tamiya and VEB kits so I checked both against good references ... and the result is rather odd ...
31. May, 16:32
Julian Herrero aka Yuri
VEB kit is spot on in lenght and span ..... Tamiya kit is grossly overscale in length (1/89 scale) and span (1/92) .... so even the VEB kit is more crude , lacks a lot of details and some details are pure phantasy ,,,, is spot in scale
31. May, 16:34
Łukasz Gliński
Wow, that's very surprising indeed 😮
