Cheers Shaun! Glad you made it back from the slopes in one piece! The only time I ever skied involved a 13' scaffold board and the snow slope at MK Xscape :-D

Anyway, the Mig is done; photos to follow tomorrow and a new project is on the bench :grin:
It's the Revell new-ish tool Spitfire Mk.IIa in 1/32nd scale. According to the experts, this kit has a multitude of faults and errors, none of which will be corrected during this build :grin:

So far it looks like a nice kit 8-)

Ha ha! Yes, that 1/32 Spitfire copped it from the critics for sure. (But in this day and age you have to wonder how money was spent on a new tool with the wrong shape oil cooler).
Looking forward to progress on your MiG 23.

Cheers,

David

It is a shame that the big players still manage to make such errors with their newer toolings (and I'm not singling out Revell here as I'm generally a big fan of their products) but, hey ho, I'm sure it'll look enough like a Spit Mk II to satisfy most of us and I look forward to seeing it come together.

The Mig got finished a while ago, but I didn't get around to photographing it until this evening:

Work continues on the Spitfire cockpit; most of the assembly is done and has been painted in Interior Green, with details to be picked out and then weathered

Very nice, Jim. That looks a bit more refined than the old Hasegawa kit for sure.
Watch out for the starboard AA-7 missile dropping off the pylon!

Cheers,

David

I'm not a fan of the MiG, but I can see you've done a good job 8-)

That looks great, Iggie. Aluminium or silver finishes are not the easiest to apply with a paint brush!

Good spot! I must remember to re-fix that when I'm next near the display cabinets! :grin:

Thanks Paddy!

Work continues with the Revell 1/32 Spitfire; the cockpit is nicely appointed and is now beginning to look the part. The IP is the kit decals, with a lot of decalfix to set it, and looks pretty good to me! Everything else has had a coat of Humbrol 78 Interior Green, and details picked out in appropriate colours and then dry brushed with Revell Aluminium. The whole lot got a coat of Tamiya Smoke and a matt varnish on top of that.
I forgot the compass and reflector sight; both have now been added :grin:

nice cockpit work. Did the MK II not have the reddish brown Bakelite seats?
