I prime with tamiya rattlecan grey, works well and is easy to get a good finnish

My go-to primer as well. I also like Gunze's Mr. Color primers. They come in several colors.

Done and duste, other than a few fit issues it was not a bad kit with great detail.

 

Alclad airframe alluminium in different shades on different pannels and burnt iron on the jet exhaust.

Outstanding work. That large scale came out great. I think you nailed the NMF and the attention to detail is superb.

How are you doing Thuens? I hope well. Great job on the Mig! I really like the realism you're able to achieve with the NMF. Your weathering is fantastic as well. Thanks for the play by play. Ray...

Hello,

 

I am building the Trumpeter 1/48 version and I cannot find pictures on the Net regarding how the forward hatch is positioned. Yours hinged hatch is the same on Eduard site but is this accurate? Looking at the rivets, it looks like the entire hatch is removed rather than hinged. Thanks Dai

Dai Phan, the F13 had a canopy that worked as shown on Theuns' model.  The MiG21MF had a side hinging canopy.  Here's a couple of photos, the first is an F13.  The idea was for the canopy to act as a blast shield when the pilot ejected, if my memory is correct.

Dai, it is quite possible that the entire avionics bay cover was removed, I have no idea really it just makes sence to me that a hindged setup is better in terms of maintenance where the thing is not lying on the ground somewhere.

 

But your guess is as good as mine :-)

 

As for the rivet lines, perhaps it is how the skin is attatched to the frame that looks (in this overdone scale) like fastners instead of actual rivets, Im just specualting...
