April 8, 2017 · in Aviation · · 16 · 4.2K

Hello, dear friends!
Finished my next model. Just want to Express my admiration for the quality of the sprues and connectivity. They are just gorgeous! Zvezda your new kit has surpassed itself. Almost no filler whole Assembly went smoothly with a minimum of repairs. Also impressed decal. The Technicals are amazing. Very detailed and excellent quality.

What was changed or added:

  1. Wheels from the Equipage.
  2. Nozzle from AMIGO. Excellent nozzle, perfect in regular places.
  3. Photo etched parts from the Eduard.

Primed and painted I straulino from cylinders paint KUDO. Color namesever himself on a photo. Camo painted on the clay of Blutak. Not fully able to reflect color in the photo exactly as on the model, for that I apologize. But if you compare the model with photos of the real aircraft, like the color got. Glossy varnish, too, KUDO, but the semi-matte finish - Tamiya X-35 acrylic. Lantern before gluing bathed in the Futura. After removed the mask walked on it with Futura again with a brush. Nozzle colored metallics AK-Interactive Xtreme Metal. Mud Vidovi did with oil spots, soft brush with white spirit 1050. The joints were isolated for the most part gray mixture of gouache+Fery+water. Control surfaces - black mixture. Lights this glass, but I filled them with epoxy. Me as more like them.
Actually that's all.
