    Hello,
     
    after a thin layer of Tamiya X-22 Clear Gloss, I've applied a dark wash all over the model.
     
     
    Now I have to put another couple of thin layers of Clear Gloss than it should be ready for decals.
     
    CIAO!

    Hello,
     
    my Fulcrum is back in full Czech's camouflage colors!
     
    This machine will be the Czech's 5918.
    Not even two Czech's Fulcrum had the same camouflage pattern... why????
     
    This time I hope to be a little more lucky with the Tally Oh!'s decals...

    This model is cursed...
     
    After the usual decal process of clear gloss, micro set and sol, again clear gloss and than clear flat... here the result.
     
     
    I don't know what's happened... all decal's film is visible and extremely flat.
     
    Before spraying the clear flat here's how the decals looked... they were fine to me.
     
     
    Now I'm very disappointed at least... I think I'll throw it away from my balcony at 5th floor... damn!!!
     
    Never again Begemont decals for me.

    nearly close to put on some paint... but still some work to do.
     
    The airbrake has been put on in closed position. The actuators has been reshaped and detailed too.
     

     
    Some details has been added to the IP cover. The HUD frame is there but still no glass, this will be added after the painting phase.
     

     
    A very nice surprise were the plastic under-wing pylons: I was worried of the amount of work I should done because these parts in the M and K versions are wrong in shape and details.
    Instead, in this box the pylons are almost correct in shape and details... so a little work here and the job is done!
     

     
    Now its time to paint the cockpit area and the frame inside the windshield.

    ... some details has been added under the front fuselage part: these includes open some air intakes, antennas dishes, stiffener plats and a lot of panel lines correction.
     
     
    The ventral engines nacelles and jet air intakes fitted under the main fuselage part. Also here I've added some details as stiffener plates, PE parts, a lot of panel lines re-scribing and rivets too.

    ... looking at the ventral engines nacelles and at the main jet air intakes plastic parts, these has a lot of wrong or missed panels and also are missed some drain and pipes points.
     
     
    Along the jet air intakes there are two long molding lines... that needs to be removed.
     
     
    The FOD plastic parts are really bad... I don't like the way they fits and the grills are wrong too.
     
     
    For me here the better and easy job is to replace the plastic parts with the Eduard's PE pieces.
     
     
    Here're the ventral engines nacelles after the details job I've done.

    Hello,
     
    some update here.
    The main undercarriage wheel bays plastic parts has a good level of details but I've also added some details as a lot of hydraulics lines ,stiffener plates, fuel cap and so on.
     
     
    On the upper surface I've added some details around the auxiliary air intakes, using plasticard and PE parts.
    Also, I've opened a pair of oval air intakes and a circular inspection windows on the right side.

    Hello,
     
    last we i worked on the front wheel bay.
    The plastic parts are ok but can be detailed and so I did it adding some reinforcement plates, hydraulic tubes and valves.
     
     
    Dry fitting the wheel bay inside the lower fuselage part is ok.
    Now its time to work on the central undercarriage bays...

    ... Unfortunately it went like this...
     
     
    My first experience with Techmod's decals has been "difficult": they are printed very well, good color saturation and a thin films... but hardly to use because are so fragile to move from the wet paper and to place on the model.
    Despite the model was so well glossed I had also a lot of silvering all over the stencils... a nightmare.
    This is the first time such a thing has happened to me... so I removed paints and decals until the bare plastic: I've used the AK Paint Stripper specific product for this task.
     
    Tomorrow I'm going to clean the plastic, restore some panel lines and rivets and after that I'll paint it again.
    This time it will be a Czech's Mig-29A, as it should has been from the beginning.

    Hello,
     
    the Fulcrum has been glossed with a couple of layers of Tamiya X-22 thinned with Tamiya Laquer Thinner "yellow cap".
    After that I've applied a wash using the Flory Model's "Dark Dirt" acrylic wash.
     
     
    Now it's ready for the decals.

    Hello,
     
    I spent the weekend spraying colors all over the small panels, antennas, metallic plates, radome and the interior of the undercarriage bays.
     
     
    Now its time to prepare the surface for some good thin layers of clear gloss paint Tamiya X-22.
