Awesome! Your base is coming along really nicely.

 

Kev

Thank you Kev.

 

Base looks terrific, and you've got a great canvas ready to go on the plane. Great work!

 

Cheers

Jim

Thank you Jim.

 

I was quite busy lately, as I had to do some additional paint rack and drawers modules (do not have a photo) as previous were almost full.

This one is half size of the one already done and have space only for 20 jars of Tamiya paints (it have 36mm holes):

Previously made modules are for 45 smaller jars (36mm) and 30 bigger jars (40mm):

Finally, armament is ready:

And I could finally finish monument, first black then some blue on sides:

And rest with orange:

Orange looks a little something like this:

Some final work on base, so what was this:

Became this:

The whole top element could be removed so I have now two bases in one.
 
And plane got pre shading on bottom, now I will have to mix some colors and finally paint it:

This diorama is really a good idea. The model and the base look great, and this uncommon "post service" blue scheme fits nicely to the Mig-23.

I just wonder how will you be able to use all this great armament on a single aircraft !

Zero77 - thank you. I was a little affraid of painting plane with such colours, they fit more to Su-27. I can't recall MiG-23 in blue-grey 4 tone camo but hey, why not. And it seems it was a good choise.

As for armament - it will all be revealed soon (I hope) while posting the ready for inspection photos.  :whistle:

Love this, if you look on Russianplanes.net there are quite a few old Russian birds laying around like this, I've always wanted to do a Mig-15 in a similar way but not if that makes sense... maybe one day I can find the time...

 

 

Look forward to seeing it complete!!

Doors of front gear were corrected (I fill the wrongly drilled holes) and repainted:

Time has came to paint the upper part. This came scheme is very unique, it is probably fiction as I didn't found any photo to such pattern or colors on MiG-23.
Let's say that this is my vision of monument plane camo and real planes attached by Trumpeter to the kit.
Colours are total craziness. I had to mix a lot of colours (and thus waste some) to get the shades I wanted. You can see the result on last photo.
 
Preshading with gray, black and white:

Masking for dark grey::
