Great work with this pair, OT - that is a lovely smooth looking white finish on the '104, white can be such a cow to get right IMHO.

Both are looking really good and I'm looking forward to seeing the 104 get it's decals on

I wish. ;-)

The Sabre is just about there. Wash on:

Image

Wash off. Mr Miyagi would be proud! ;-)
I have uncovered the canopy with no damage done. I can even see the pilot. 8-)

Image

As you can see the drop tanks are attached so I just need to paint the nav-lights, make a pitot tube and paint the canopy framing. I will be glad to see the back of this one. :roll:

I've made a start on the S-tank but nothing to show just yet as I'm still assembling wheels, running gear etc.

I decided that the nose of the MiG-29 looked a little emaciated and a bit of research showed that I am not alone in thinking this.
So Quickboost resin to the rescue and I have to say what a lovely bit of resin it is.
You can see the difference between the kit part and replacement here:

Image

The kit part is a bit slim and a little short - very reminiscent of the pre-production aircraft before the radar was ready.
I guess this could be what italeri based their kit on. So I started on the nose job.

Image

I cut shy of the line where the parts should meet so that I can sand down to where I need. It's much easier to remove than add plastic. :-D

The F-104 is in the paint shop and I will document progress for that build in the 'Shelf of Doom SB' thread as it has been started for several years.

The Sabre is looking good and the replacement nose will make a difference.
