It was my first try on Chipping Fluids from AK-Interactive...a short Building-report (in german language) is available on my blog:

  1. Another fine piece of modeling, my friend...outstanding work.

  2. Got to love the idea behind this build. Great delineation of finishes, and that splash of cockpit blue really sets it off.

  3. Great work! Always liked this aircraft.

  4. Really nice work on this.

    Any chance of letting we monolingual culturally-deprived folks have some idea of how this works? I can think of a lot of uses for it with my models if I knew what you know.

    • Hello Tom, I added the link above to my small building report - you get to my website, on the left side you can "translate" the german text into english, google should do an understandable job 😉 Cheers, Christian

  5. Looks great ! Fantastic job with this one.

  6. Christian, the paint scheme (or lack thereof) on this is really good. I'm guessing this was at the end of its active duty life?

  7. 🙂 ... Greetings ... 🙂 :
    Beautiful build Christian , that chipping effect is very well done.
    You made good use of the FLORY products.
    I do concur with you, the end result was a very fine creation of a very nice model and one paint job one does not see too often.

  8. Christian, this is wonderful, I've had to go back and look at it more than a few times. Great technique with the paint wear / chipping.

  9. Like a model. Combat aircraft!)).

  10. Many thanks my friends, the end-result was also for me "wow" - the chipping-process was easy to do and went better than I expected! The MiG-21 is one of my fav-plane, as Dmitry says, a real combat aircraft!
    Cheers, Christian

  11. I think a bit of paint might have come off there mate! Fantastic chipping effect! I've always used hairspray in the past to do this, are the manufactured chipping fluids much better?
    Compliments again on the build, I wish I had your skills!

    • Hello Richard, it was not as hard as it may look like...I never tried the hairspray method, so I have no comparison. But the AK fluid worked very well, I guess I will bring it into the game as often as I can 😉

  12. Hello Christian,
    Superb finish.
    Regards, Dirk/The Netherlands.

  13. Many thanks again my friends, much appreciated!
    Eduard just wrote me today, they will publish the MiG on their medias...a great honor for me.

  14. Another nice build - and looks like your experiment with the new fluid was successful!

  15. Great effect, I've never seen a real one but this looks very convincing.

  16. Thanks chaps, your feedback is much appreciated!

  17. New photos updated!
