Nice start! I'm looking forward to this build. You've taken on quite a project Lego... and a nice kit I'd imagine if it's like other Trumpy models. So no pressure not to balls it up :lol: What size are we talking here? It should look very cool all weathered up.

Thanks for posting!

its 1/32 again a size I have never done before :D . To be honest lets face it modelling today is completely different to what I did as a kid. Some mad stuff in this one [smilie=rofl.gif]

I think this is what I have to aim for. Should be able to do this one in five minutes with one hand.

Damn it I have been so busy that I did not have time to really get stuck into this model as I should have. I suppose seeing as it was an experiment I finished it the other day well out of the sell by date for the build.

It turned out ok but I was rather disappointed by the kit, but alas it is an old kit and I got it cheap :D I am not going to get into to many details but the split fuselage does not fit together right nor does the panel lines link up correctly. Then the injection marks made this kit look like it had the measles.

Trying to get anything of photographic reference out of the commies was nigh on impossible as well, made a mental note of that too. The only thing I could get from photos was that the repair crews nearly always worked from standing on the wings which I found a tad weird.

So if your fighting the Koreans you better get window wipers and a mask :lol:

I am going to do another mig 15 in the future but it will be a whole fuselage and not the split one like this.

Whats not too like, Camo well done, Nice flat scheme, it Russian and it looks excellent to me, Cant see the mismatched panels but if you did not say it you would not spot em, Trumpy kits sometimes throw up the unexpected!!

Thanks for lashing it up.

I agree, looks well done........I like the MiG jets from a - z.
The little spots are nice and clean.
Did you mist the top half or is that just a visual result because of the freckles?
I would not like making such a camo because one wrong move and the spot is too large or it runs out....certainly needs a practice on a scrap piece with a well running airbrush.

It adds interest with the halves opened and seeing the radial in that detail is great.
Nice big scale too so there is space for more detail....I haven't done a 1/32 in ages because they become so large and take extra space although this was a small jet of course.
I got 2 helicopters in that scale to build someday.

That's a cracking looking model in all fairness! You did an excellent job considering all the issues you faced. I really like it and it's a great size too. The camo is nicely done! :DX

I love the engine detailing! Well done!! At least you finished your Dirty Russian build... I can't say the same :oops:
