  1. Hi Youngtiger1, you're welcome Yes you can use Eduard 1/48 BIS for a reference, but know that - the fuselage-nose is from their 1/48 MF. Everything else is with correct shape But really sorry, I cannot recommend you any books, because I've access to the real Mig-21 Bis, MF, PFM, F-13 planes and I do not need books. Sorry once again my friend.
  2. HI Alain, well the nose-cone is wider than the MF's, not longer. I mean wider when write "larger". Sorry for that For fuselage-nose - yes it is wider than MF's also and the edge is "beveled". Maybe this is the right word. And for the spine - yes, wider and longer at the back side, where the tail it is. It ends almost where the parashute-tube starts.
  3. Thanks guys, well I do not like the "ready" colors sets from manufacturers. It's so far from truth. So every time I mix my own. About your question mc65, for "Russian cockpit green" I mix this two colors 50/50 ratio: And always you can change this mix, if you want more blueish or greenish shade of cockpit color. Cheers.
  4. Wow, Thank you guys everybody must feel excellent when people like his work Ok, no problem my friend. I've used a lot of 1mm polystirene and tamiya epoxy putty. First nose-cone: The exhaust and its "interior" : The re-worked fuselage-nose and MF back-spine: And start to shape the BIS spine: And already re-worked BIS spine, fuselage-nose and nose-cone: This was done maybe for five days, because the putty must be completely dry and hard. So hope this will be in your help at future bis projects Cheers
  5. Hi Alain and Thanks for kind words Well there are a lot of differences between MF and BIS, from outside First is the nose-cone, the Bis one is larger /got larger radar inside/, from there you've got a large nose. Second is the short nose, well it is not obvious, at 32 scale Bis nose is shorter with 1.87 mm than MF's one. Third is larger and longer Bis back side, the part after the canopy - the gargrot. Also it is with different shape. Fourth difference is between windscreens or un-removable part of canopy. The fifth - bis got a larger numbers of different antennas than MF - the obvious once are - one under the nose and one at the top of the tail. MF does not have them. Also there are differences between instrumental panel at cockpit, Bis got more gadgets At first look that is. If you want I will paste here some photos of two jets with pointed differences. Cheers my friend.
  6. Hello guys, at this topic I will show you one of greatest jets, served in our AF. The project is inspirited by this plane: For this target I've used trumpeter 1/32 scale Mig-21 MF. To became into a BIS I re-worked the nose-cone, nose itself, the back of the mig and a lot small details that make 21 into Bis. For interior I used Redfox 3d print for MF and re-work it also, CWS, BigEd from Eduard, Master, Aires, Quickboost, Armory, Begemot and home-made decals. As always acrylic tamiya for painting. Enamels, oils and acrylic pencils for weathering. So here she is: Hope you will like her Thanks as always for stopping by. Cheers friends.
  7. Hi friends, at this topic I'll show you WW2 Ju-52. Planes like this one were used for cargo transportation and para-jumps after 1944 in BG Air Force, when Bulgaria pass to USSR side. The model it self is beautiful - revell-monogram parts are great. For AM I've used Vector engines and resin-etched interior from Aires. The interior is painted with tamiya acrylics and weathered with oils and pencils. The exterior is painted with gunze laquers, weathered with tamya filters and dry brush. So here it is: Thank you always for stopping by and Cheers friends
  8. Hi guys this model is too old, but with some scratch-reworks, AM and new Begemot decals, it will close to the real bird. It's painted with tamyia acrylics as always, Alclads for exhausts and some filters over the paintwork for finish. Maybe new modelcollect B-2 is the best at that moment, but I already had this and think that the final result it's not bad at all. So here is the birdy: Well it is not a LSP thing, but for 1/72 scale - 80 cm of wing-span it is a big bird Thank you as always for stopping by and Cheers friends.
  9. Hello guys I found this cute "motocar" and I thought it will be nice to carry and lift some fuel tanks or NURS containers for my future 1/32 scale MiG planes. So the model is from Aoshima at 1/32 scale, and it is great to build from the box. Of course I add some additional parts like outer fuel tank, exhaust pipe and some rocket launcher containers to lift So here it is: And as always thank you for stopping by, and hope you will like it Cheers
  10. Hi guys at this topic I show you one of our three Panthers, that served at Bulgarian Navy. The kit is 1/35 scale from trumpeter. For now there is no AM, so I used a lot of re-works and scratch-build for additional details. The model is paint with tamiya acrylics and weathered with oil paints. So here she is Hope you will like her. Thank you always for stopping by And Cheers guys.
  11. No problem chirsh - cool joke like it
  12. Hello guys Here I show you my next non-LSP "small" vignette. The model is 1/24 meng Ford F350 pickup truck, build it from the box, without any AM and re-works. Perfect model, just like a lego, everything fits perfectly The girl with a chainsaw is 1/24 scale from hasegawa kit, and dogy is MB kit. As always the paint is acrylic tamiya, acrylic pencils and oils. So here are the pics: Hope you will like it Thanks for stopping by and cheers friends
  13. Well Chris, you know - practice, practice and many ruined models / at small scale of course /
  14. Hello guys as a little brake from 32'nd scale planes I've made a "small" 1/6 scale vignette inspirited from STALKER game. The girl and robot-dog are resin figures painted with tamiya acrylics, weapons are 3D printed, also painted with acrylics and weathered with acrylic pencils, soft-pastels and oils. The flora at the base is from local flower shop Hope you will like it: Thanks for watching and stopping by. Cheers my friends
