Eduard 1/48 Mig-21 MF

March 26, 2017 in Aviation

As the profipack, the kit comes with extra detail and of course masks. Only problems occurring was a tiny gap in the wing root, flimsy front landing gear and a slight bent nose aerial. Painting was done in Tamiya and Revell paints, both airbrushed and hand painted (as always), weathering Florymodels wash and varnished with XF-86 (Anyone else use this?)

Not a huge jet person, but have to admit I loved this one!

  1. Very nice work as usual Michael, I’m looking forward to seeing this next we meet up.
    N.

  2. Well done Michael. I built the PF weekender version two years ago and loved every minute of the build too. I had a similar problem at the wing fuselage join at the rear underside. Some plastic shim fills the gap but other than that it was a joy to build.

    I’d agree with the gear particularly the mains, they are a bit ‘story’.

    Good one.

  3. Despite any minor problems encountered, this turned out nicely, Michael.

  4. Nice work! I’m a big Mig-21 fan and love that kit. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Very nice build, Michael.
    I had that kit on my bench a while ago but postponed it for the time being. I described my way to deal with the gap at the wing roots here:

    I basically like XF-86. When it’s newly painted it looks very attractive. As it creates a rough surface, however, when handling the model it’s easily polished to some greasy appearance and so I stopped using it.

  6. A good-looking MiG-21! Nice work.

    Very nice job on the camouflage, this color scheme with Russian markings is not seen much, one always see’s the Mig-21 under Russian markings in silver ( that is my view ).
    Nice work Michael.
