1/32 Trumpeter MiG-29K - Black 941

Recommended Posts

I am a Superkart driver in the US and I paint Helmets for other racers. I also do alot of modeling. I love the building part, but being a helmet painter, painting the models is my favorite part. So when I went to build my 1/32 Trumpeter MiG-29K, I chose an interesting scheme even tho it was not a perfect fit for the actual aircraft. Kind of a what if Black 941 Was a Single Seater. I still think it looks good and it was a fun build.

I use Tamiya spray paints decanted from the spray can and then shot through one of three airbrushes using two air compressors. I use House of Kolor Urethane paints for my helmets to include Shimrin and Shimrin 2 base coats, neons and colors. I also use metal flakes as additives to color coats or to an intermediate clear. I use HoK candies and pearls as well as pearl powders. I sometimes use white and black HoK bases mixed with Tamiya colors for tinting for my models. I use 3 airbrushes, a touch up gun and and a full size gun with full size compressor for helmet and kart painting. Combining my helmet paints with my model paints work well as both are lacquer based. I also use something I learned about in helmet painting. I use SEM XXX Gun cleaner and XXX Waterborne gun cleaners. They are a spray lacquer and acrylic cleaner in a large spray can. Works great on airbrushes for cleaning.
