MIG 29M "Fulcrum" - 1/32 Trumpeter


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

As my presentation, I will start the construction of a well known kit of Trumpeter: the MIG 29M "Fulcrum". I'll do it OOB, with some scratchbuilding for the engine nozzles. I'll post in accordance with the advances, which requires some patience (for you  :lol: )

All the best,

PL

Hi,

 

Today I show you an update of the model construction, including the fuselage and exhaust nozzles, with the necessary details. I chose not to add any scratch on the exhaust nozzles, trying to enhance the paint to create the illusion of reality. I hope you enjoy.
All the best,

Although not well represented, these are the covers of  air intake openings. I painted them black to give the illusion of depth.

A lot of green putty connecting the intakes to the fuselage

For the junction of the horizontal stabilizers to the fuselage, I chose to place two vinyl rings, to allow its mobility.

The exhaust nozzles were painted in various shades of Alclad II, namely "steel", "aluminum", "jet exhaust", "pale burnt metal" and various mixtures with blue and red enamel. The interior was painted with quick sprays of acryilic white.

Here, in a subtle way, you can see the red, yellow and blue tones of the nozzles

Hi,

 

Once again, another update. This time scratching the covers of air intakes and engine nozzles, "plus" the painting.

Cya!

for the covers of air intakes and engine nozzles I used plates and strips of "evergreen" plastic.

Covers painted with insignia red and some silver chiping.

Pre shading with acrylic black Tamiya XF-1

The camo is in two-tone: Skygray and green light, that I got using the following mix:  for the light green I mixed  Tamyia XF-65(2)+ XF-23(1), which subsequently added a few drops of white XF-2 to give the lights in the center of each panel.The gray tone was obtained with XF-19. I used a Iwata Revolution airbrush.

Hi guys!!

 

Another update. This time I applied the oil washes with a home made "recipe". I also built and painted the missiles that are going to equip the Mig.

I hope you enjoy.

Cya.
