Trumpeter 1/32 Mig29K

Recommended Posts

Hey fellow modellers, haven't posted anything in a loooong time but have been lurking nearly everyday so thought I'd get off my lazy backside and take some pics of my most recent work, Trumpeter's 1/32nd Mig 29k. This is the first jet of any kind I've built so after being nagged at the recent Model Expo here in Melbourne to "just build a jet" I went home and did just that! Actually I picked this kit up at the swap n sell at said Expo for $50 after thinking that if I don't like it or it doesn't build well I haven't wasted a whole lot of hard earned.

 

The kit builds beautifully with no real vices that some basic skills wouldn't be able to fix easily, general fit of the kit is excellent. Although the wing fold area is a real bear of a join to contend with!

All paints used are Tamiya cross refed with Gunze which are called out in the instructions.

 

And where she's at the minute....

I did have the bluing on the exhaust done with a drop of x8 blue in some acrylic clear which worked well but bought Tamiya's weathering set which has "burnt blue" in it and added to it......maybe a little over done?

The painting of the top surfaces, as well as the bottom, I've tried to keep random. I tend to use the airbrush very much like a colouring pencil, very close to the surface and in short sharp strokes as well as cross hatching. What you end up with is a really patchy random layer of paint which in essence has already 2/3rds weathered the paint. Add to that some different shades and repair patches and it starts to become interesting and a whole heap of fun especially when its heading in the direction you want it to go!

Not quite there yet with some small bits and bobs to do to the airframe. Working on the weapons at the moment so will update with that stuff soon.

 

Thanks for looking in......

Wow, that looks great! Nice variation in what is a single color.

Cheers Ray, the single colour schemes can be a challenge.

 

Holy mother.... What a wonderful paint job!!!

Thanks Stormer, glad you like her.

 

Okey, that tops the list with the best painted/weathered models i`ve ever seen :) Very Beautiful!

Thanks F's, your too kind.

Kikka, I was going to do that scheme, but I wanted something a little different on the shelf. Glad you like her.
