    Hi everyone! I still have some work to do on the F-14 but this will be my first MiG built for the group build.

    Eduard 1:72 kit out of the box with Syhart decals.

    Hi, Sebastijan! Complex you chose the color of the plane. Good luck!

    Fantastic camu scheme. Great.

    I know, it’s been too long, but real life is kicking my spare time in behind and the result is only one model finished in 2019 so far… But I plan to change that!

    Here’s where I am at, at the moment.

    Cockpit is finished. Hand painted everything, no pre-painted PE stuff. The only additions were seat harnesses made out of Tamiya masking tape and ejection seat handle made out of thin lead wire.

    Landing lights – little piece of kitchen aluminum foil on the back of clear plastic part does a very convincing trick!

    Cockpit finished

    Coming along nicely Sebastijan.

    @inflames – what a cool landing light! Looking forward to the paintjob! That will be a real masking frenzy (or some major decaling – I haven’t come across the decal-sheet you mention)

  • Sebastijan Videc said 1 week, 3 days ago:

    Thank you, Erik! It is indeed a cheap and very effective trick.

    I am using Syhart decals – http://www.syhartdecal.fr/references.php?lang=ENG&ref=Syhart%20074&page=description

    Check their page as they have many awesome special markings decals

    Base coat of Arctic Light Grey and little bit of playing with MrP metalizers for the exhaust area. Camouflage next!

    Even with decals, finishing this build is going to be a lot of work. Looking forward to seeing the finished model.

  • Sebastijan Videc said 15 hours ago:

    Overcame the first hurdle, applying decals to the fuselage.
