Hello everyone! Yet another donkey- this time ski option. Aftermaket already standard on this model – CMK resin, etched forehead cowl of Gonza, canopy Squadron.
Painted acrylic Gunze, lacquer Microscale, white paint – Tamiya enamel. Scrapes and scratches simulated sandpaper.
When building this model, the internet was turned off – and that’s good))), does not distract. Enjoy!

  1. Let me be the first to bow to your talent. Exceptional.

  2. Exquisite. And your building rate is admirable…

  3. that is simply stunning I built the academy kit witch can be seen here in I modeler the academy kit looks to be far less detailed than eduard that is a beautiful model great work all around

  4. Outstanding as usual, Maxim….you have a real artistic quality in your builds.

  5. I THINK we got the best of the month right here, folks. That header shot is Soooooo cool….gunsight is retty good too….skis….weathering….I’m rambling…..

  6. Maxim, Beautifully done! Great work in all aspects of the build.

  7. Man, that’s a great plane Maxim! I just bought the Trumpeter MiG-3 and that’s exactly how I want the paint to look. Thanks for the inspiration!!

  8. Thank you, colleagues – you made me blush))

  9. A great skier!

    Best regards, Vlad.

  10. A braying “donkey” for sure! (Hee-haw! Hee-haw!) One of the most realistic winter schemes i have seen on a model.

  11. I’m not a fan of winter cameo. Most folks make the model look like a blank sheet of paper or a Polar Bear lost in a snow storm…and the model looks way too white. In this case the paint looks appropriate for the scale and has just enough weathering (Other than white) to look spot on.

    Two thumbs up and ” You like this” +1

  12. Beautiful job, Maxim, I agree with everyone’s comments.
