Making Realistic AfterBurner Flames. . . 1/72 Mig-29SMT/UPG
The build is a MIG29SMT built into an Indian Air Force MIG29UPG taking off on a Wet Runway with Glowing Afterburners.
The kit used is a Trumpeter MIG29SMT in 1/72 size.
Most of the work done was on making the Flame look realistic enough. The flame is Clear Resin and is lit by using 2 White LEDs housed in the exhaust cans.
The model is painted using the bare basic techniques of preshading and light coats of grey color to make this an IAF grey machine. Paints used were acrylics.
This was a first trial run to make the Afterburner Flames, so I hope this becomes a step in producing more of such models.
Do Enjoy the Build. . . Cheers . . . . 🙂
