Thanks all! I've had a few days off to recover after a couple of late night trips to emergency so I've been working on this lots. So many things to be doing with the MiG and the car on the go at the same time. Some pics of the progress:


This was my first experiment with the salt technique. I think a light blue for the body colour would allow the rust and wear to come across better than the red. But this should look okay weathered and faded a bit. I'll definitely be using the salt again.

Nice job the salt weathering on the car is nice and subtle, and I love that panel colour post shading ?? or is that pre shading on the Mig? anyway looks good.

I've done a few navy jets in the past with the salt technique usually I do a few passes with light colour paint and then wash of, re-apply salt and then do a really thin layer of 'grime' which is really thin XF-1 and a rust brown (XF-9??).

I hope you're ok mate sounds a bit serious having to rush off to A&E not fun!

The little Triumph Herald brings back memories. My first car kit about 3 years ago. I painted mine a similar colour - Probably the worst colour to weather. I did the salt trick also and streaks etc but with such a dark colour the weathering was hard to see. Next time I will use pale colours.

Spooky. Agreed about red not being ideal. Nice job on the diorama though. :)

Two trips in an ambulance and lots of morphine. The last week is a bit of a blur. Hopefully they have this issue sorted now though, and its not too serious if the diagnosis is right. But I've been a bit morose. I didn't expect to get this decrepit so young. :lol:

Liking what you're doing Grant... your builds really do inspire me to get back into it. If I'm not stuffed tonight, hopefully the Hurricanes will get some attention.

It was not a good weekend for getting things done. I worked on the decals and gear though. Looking at my reference pictures, these had very roughly applied paint jobs and almost no stencils. Suits me. :)

Ready for the final assembly of the car. A surprising amount of work for such a small kit.

Weathering and more parts added to the MiG-21. A flat coat will bring it together a bit. This build has been really satisfying so far.

I need a couple of figures, so I've adapted the figures in the kit which are truly abysmal. :lol: Naseem (the guy standing) is made out of the best parts of the four ground crew figures in the kit. He has a nicely characterful face but that's about it. It looks like he's break dancing. Hussein the pilot (including gangly limbs and oversized hands) will be in the cockpit. They look like caricatures, but I'm not sure that is a bad thing for this diorama given the cartoonish theme.

I took the masking off the canopy. looks rather colourful. :)

Figure adaptation looks ok, one of the hardest things to do I reckon.

I'm past that stage fortunately. The tried and true method worked perfectly. I did get some Tamiya acrylic satin coat that I'm thinking about putting on though. Maybe I should test it on another smaller kit. :dry:

The MiG is done apart from the canopy which needs some work for it to be posed open. I'm probably going to put this down for a while and build something else.

In Melbourne at the moment so no progress on this. But I did pick up a nice kit from Metro Hobbies. Maybe I can fit another one in the suitcase.
