[W] - MiG-29M - Trumpeter 1:32

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I started this model more then one year ago, but I didn't do to much since kit was missing some parts.

I got those parts thanks to general distributor of Trumpeter in Poland and I could continue my work.

I bought Aires ejection seat and here's a comparision to the seat included in the Trumpeter's kit:

Nice going mate. I've taken the liberty of moving your thread here to Works in Progress, since that's what it seems to be. Looking forward to more!

Thanks.

I've noticed that by mistake I have created a new topic in Ready for Inspection section instead of Work in Progress and I've send email to Erik, Dan and Ron to move it to proper location.

 

Experimating with preshading:

In the meantime I found a picture of MiG-29M2 in very cool painting scheme and I decided that I will do mine in the same way:

Looks great!

Really like the late MiGs and the Flankers. ( Have a soft spot for the MiG-3 though..looks liker a racer.)

 

AWESOME choice for scheme...Those schemes make me skeered.

 

:beer:

Cheers,

Dave

Very, very nice indeed and a great choice for the colour scheme too. Like the others here, I love these modern "Eastern Bloc" fighters (although I'd love a MiG 15; pity no one does a decent one in large scale).

Thank you all for such superb comments.

 

Some more photos (part of them are taken with my phone so forgive me quality of those pictures):

Almost done with masking:

And right after finishing it:

P78234400.jpg

 

I paint too mauch areas with green so I have to correct areas where blue-gray will be, so I painted those places wint neutral gray and then preshading was done again:

After painting of second color I started masking and painting of some fuselage details:

And after removing masking model looks like this (engine covers were painted in the meantime, but I will show picture later):
