Mig GB – late to the party, Trumpeter 1/48 MiG-19
Hi folks, I hope Sebastijen doesn’t mind me gatecrashing his party, but, for various reasons, I have’t been on iModeler for quite some time. The main reason is that iModeler hasn’t been available here in China for some time, but I noticed it was online again a few weeks ago, and buoyed up by the enthusiasm in this group build I thought I’d like to join in.
This is the same kit that John Healy posted here a few weeks ago, but John did some research and finished his in Hungarian colours, whereas I was lazy and used the kit decals. What is there to say about the kit? Well, it must be one of Trumpeter’s early efforts, the sprues were marked 2002,, but all in all it was a pleasure to build. I had to add some lead fishing weights to stop her being a tail-sitter. The finish is Tamiya silver from a spray can, a few panels picked out in in contrasting colours, finished with a little panel line wash.
Thanks again to Sebastiejn for organising this group build, and to Louis Gardner for helping to get my mojo back. Happy new year everyone.
