  8. hello Michal, your MiG and its NMF looks great. did you use any primer for this paint job or just sprayed Tamiya AS-12 on the bare plastic? how is it works with glossy varnishes? thanks, cheers Milan

  9. Hello Milan
    For this build as a primer I used Gunze Mr.Surfacer 1500 Black, but you can use any gloss black primer. Regarding gloss coat I used Tamiya X-22 with Self Leveling Thinner from Gunze. It work great giving nice semi gloss coat before decals. After decals and weathering I didn't put any additional layer of gloss because I was happy with the results. Hope it will help.

  10. Very nice, Michal. Is that kit still available? I built a couple of them when it was first introduced, but haven't seen them arounfd since.
