    Mig-21 - work in progress

    Post  J.Fenech on Sun Aug 16, 2009 11:11 am

    More like work resumed, Academy Mig-21 with FM details cockpit in 1/48th scale. Drybrushed and put together the cockpit. The green color is quite difficult and really a b****h to work with, and you can't lighten it more otherwise it goes completely out of point.

    Fantastic Joseph......the tone looks very good and as you said, if you lighten a certain colour even more you end up with a different tone altogether.

    Maybe you should have darkened the base colour just a bit and then you lightened with the actual colour, but as I said it looks ok Shocked

    Hi Joseph,

    Take a look at---> http://www.helmo.gr/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=896&Itemid=1
    I think David achieved the accurate Interior tone for the Cockpit.

    Great work so far...

    Finally a soviet era jet from yur magic hands ... what nation middle east? Hope so ...

    I think the MIG21 is similar to the T55 soviet MBT tank, so many nations and so many schemes to choose from!

    Took a look at David cockpit, but my impression is that it is too blue, could be light effects, but it looks more similar to the blue used in sukhoi aircraft cockpits. Could just be my impression. Something I overlooked is that white strip in the front panel, will try to rectify but I doubt it as the cockpit is already fixed inside the fusalage. Thanks for the advice.

    Yep, middle east was my intention? What do you think about a syrian mig during 1982 were they suffered heavy losses to Isreali F-16 and F-15s

    If the one I am going to model was one of the aircraft shot down it is definitly extint, but a quick search on th net, it looks that syria still got a sizeable fleet of Mig 21, in excess of 200 if the sources are correct. Not sure about the scheme, if still in sand,green, grey,blue and given todays trend maybe they painted then in gray color. Will make a quick check on the net.

    Good site, Thanks. Found the 1982 database, but it does not give the Mig-21 number of the aircraft shot down, but gives the squadron number of the isreali aircraft that shot down an aircraft. Something is brewing in my mind, maybe a F-15A in isreali markings to sit side by side the Mig???

    using a 0000 brush, ruining the eyesight (do not use magnifying glass, got a pair semi-permanent Smile Smile ), doing it late at night instead of sleeping and lot of words What a Face Joking apart I use acyrlic in this case so that any mistakes can be washed away and redo them, something that happens.
