I love the smell of Alclad in the morning 😀 or was it napalm? Doesn’t matter really as the work was done actually last evening. 4 Alclad shades, one ModelMaster metalizer and the result is NMF bussiness end of Flanker’s mighty Saturn AL-31F engines. Anyhow the whole process was documented step by step and will be hopefully published in the Scale Aircraft Modelling magazine article. While I was at it, MiG-21s also got the exhausts painted and Steel was used for R-27 ‘Alamo’ fins – many modellers mistakenly paint them with black colour, which is incorrect.
