I have put on the gloss coat on the MiG for protection from weathering. I want to chip/weather the windows with the masks first, so i can not exedential toutch the transparant glass parts. Then i make some photo's of the whole. Its a very nice combination of colours wth the blue, white, silver and red stars.

Hey Massimo  Cheesy

Well, the plane is not finnished yet. Now i am busy with pre-chipping of the blue undersurface. I am not happy with a row of rivets i placed back then. I am going to try to correct this also... Photo's!

Hello Remco, your are doing a good and clean job on your MiG!
Sorry, but I noticed a little mistake: the two vertical "frames" on the windscreen were not metallic, but glued joints between its three elements. See here:
http://mig3.sovietwarplanes.com/mig3/yuri-rr/canopy.htm
It seems to me that also wartime pictures confirm this.
I think the best (or the only) way to reproduce them is leaving these two "frames" unpainted. In case you want to correct it, DON'T USE SOLVENT! Gently rub them with a cotton swab soaked with Tamiya Polishing Compound and the paint quickly disappears without leaving traces.

Hi,
that is right, pity that I didn't noticed this when the first canopy was unmasked.
Hasn't this windscreen already been passed with any gloss cote, isn't it?

Hey guys!

I found a photo of the windshield.  Its very hard to find a nice close up of the window


With the fuzz i had on the windshield, i think i leave it like that. Like Massimo earlier sad, it can be painted in aluminium. Thanks for the comment, if i knew it earlier, i would do some better research on it.

Regards,

Remco

Hi Remco,
It's certainly better to leave it as it is; being the model nearly finished, the risk to ruin it is too high.

Hey guys!

We are making some progress here with the weathering. Some photo's of a step by step progress.

 



This is the underside. I blend the colours with a brush and a little bit of thinner for washes. Works for me.

Top side. The white is done with some oil paint of Panzer abt 503. This to have a nice contrast between the wood and aluminium parts.


No paint added


Small white dots added for blending


Here is the result of the blending of the white oil paint

Now the darkness in the wooden parts is now a bit "softer" than before.

Hope you like it!

Well, i still have to weather the metal parts and make some oil and grease/fuel staines. Also thinking about a snowy undergroud for effect.

Remco,
although I am not confident about so big metal/alluminium areas on the fron fuselage, I must say it looks realy nice! Very nice.
