MIG-15 UTI 1/72 Eduard

Hola friends of the Polystyrol,

big changes in our forum and a very tiny plane to show.

My very last build before I left Berlin last year was a pleasant one, because the fit of the parts was ok and the addition of PE for the cockpit area made things easier, specially in 1/72.
First I decided to go for a camouflaged finish, but then I changed my opinion, because I wanted to do my first Natural Metal Finish and trying different shades of Alclad Aluminium.
I liked the result and the decals blended in well. The markings are finish and yes, there are some tiny parts missing. After 3000 miles in a container the little bird arrived in a not too bad
shape.

Cheers Rob

I heard allot of good thing's about this kit Rob. And if i look at your model, i only can justify that rumor. Really good looking MIG 15, and in Finish markings, something that is not seen often.

Thanx Danny, and yeah this is a nice kit. Everything fits well and the detail, especially in the cockpit area is very good given the scale. The decals are of great quality and depict not only the usual suspects. There are also interesting Algerian and Indonesian schemes on the sheet.

I have the "normal" Eduard Mig-15 in my stash (The Bunny Racer edition), which is complemented with a lot of resin and PE. One day after optical surgery or the purchase of a microscope I will continue my 1/72 adventures :blink:

I always have the deepest respect for people that tackle this nice little gem's. Sadly it's not in my range because of my eyesight that is lacking.

Normally that is not my comfort zone either. It was the first 1/72 build since I was a kid. The eyes don't get better with the age :).

Thanx Jeroen, sometimes I thought it would have been better to start with the single seater :), but then what the heck with a little help of colored Photoetch everything gets a little easier with the cockpit.
But building this little plane was in some ways a reminiscence of my days as a kid with an Airfix Phantom in 1/72 and no PE, no resin, no airbrush and no weathering at all. Modelling has changed a lot and lost some of it's innocence, but so have I. Anyway, I like to have all that stuff around nowadays and to challenge myself in building different kind of kits and learn new techniques.

Cheers Rob
