Trumpeter 1/32 MiG 21 F-13 Completed
Posted by Theuns on Saturday, August 11, 2018 6:48 AM

I started this kit for our MOY in December.

The detail out the box is very nice, here is the tub

The seat will have the paracute harnass on it, otherwize it is a little to bare.

It is an early 21 so it will not have the "hurt your eyes green" but the light bleu /grey colours.

This kit has really nce detail but some rather odd features. The avionics bay has not front or rear bulckheads to blank off the gaping holes eithe end of the bay floor. It also has a nice metal intake cone, fully detailed engine but no intake trunking....

I saw anlther build of this kit and the guy had a resin after market insert for the vertical stab that features nice hydrolic and electrical points.

Not having ANY budget for Am bling I had to make my own, not as cool as resin but I do what I can with what I have ;-)

Here is the IP

I am installing all the bits in the fuse and even here it is confusing as there is allot of forward/rearward play in the locator seats for the cockpit, avionics bay ect so I need to be slow and methodical in doing this.

Thanx Mr T

I got the alclad black on, not as glossy as the enamel I usually use but I am not going for a super high shine.

 IMG_20180909_133048 by Theunis van Vuuren, on Flickr

The heat stain area of the rear fuse is pale burnt and burnt iron alclad.

A few coats of airframe allu alclad went on , I will mask the dark pannels and put more airframe allu on to make the rest of the pannels lighter. This way the difference between the pannels is not as hard.

Thanx

 

I got the decals on, they are a huge letdown with this kit.

They are out of register, I had to cut the stars out from the paper. The stencling looks OK, but then they are so small it doesnt matter.

Yeah, that Mig is looking great.  The tonal variations in the NMF provide an outstanding realism.

Gorgeous realism in your NMF. I'm striving to get that now on a 1/48 P-38 I am doing, using your Mig as a referance.  A big thank you for posting.

I see that you use masking tape, any problems with NMF lifting off?  I am not as corageous as I use Post it notes for that.

I'm actually working on a NMF Mig-21 too.  Mine is the 1/48 Eduard kit.  I have been using Tamiya tape, but I like to stick it to my hand 3 or 4 times to remove some of its tack.  It hasn't peeled the finish yet, but I'm very careful about removing the tape.  I can see some of the metal "fleck" sticking to the tape I remove.

the metal fleck on the tape is normal, I get it all the time it is almost like an overspray dust.

I also do not pull the tape up and away from the mdel, I lift a corner and pull it back on itself so that the non sticky sides almost touch. This way you put very little pull force on the tape.

Yeah, sounds like a good approach.  I get paranoid with the NMF.  I keep reminding myself that I'm one careless yank away from a ruined finish.

As with any paint ;-)

I use the same tecnique on all my other non metal stuff aswell

Very nice work! I find that a good primer coat will prevent the paint from lifting off. Primer, black base, then Alclad.
