Finnish Fishbed

I apologize to the readers and visitors of my blog for a longer absence. Real life has stepped in and prevented any serious attempt at modelling for the last couple of months. New Year came in the mean time and I hope Santa (or any other local good old guy) brought you some new models under your trees.

As I’ve lost a bit of a modelling mojo during this time, I’ve decided to kick-start my building process by building something simple yet nice. Eduard’s 1:144 MiG-21 kits are just that – they simply fall together and there are countless of marking options for you to choose from. For this project, I’ve decided to build a Finnish bird and the only resentment I have towards Eduard is that they printed the FiAF roundels out of register.

Paints used were ModelMaster enamel Dark Green B-52 FS34096 and Revell 9 Anthrazite which were given an oil colour filter, which darkened the green, gave the Black that greenish tone, highlighted all the panel lines and toned down the markings.

And of course obligatory 1 Euro coin comparison 🙂
