Mig-17 (HB 1/48)
« on: October 15, 2011, 09:50:10 PM »
Hello!

I'm posting for the first time on this forum. Like your community verry much and now is time to present some of may works. The last project on my work bench is an Egyptian MiG-17 in 1/48 scale. I intend to biuld it straight out of box. The scale model is well detailed on the outside with sufficient details on the insade. Two major concearns are when building HB miniature replica. First are glass parts which are thick with thick cabin rams. The other is missalingment ot two halves, front and the rear part, of the fusselage.

This is how it looks now.

Thanks everybody for your kind words. The bird got it's colors. But only on the top so far. I set myself to build an exotic Mig-17 so I chose Angola AF colour scheme. For the decals I'll use HI-DECAL set 48-005.

And here it is painted lower parts with Vallejo MA 08. I forgot to mention that I used sand Vallejo MA 75 and brown Vallejo MA 29 fot the uper camouflage.

Coming from someone else who also enjoys "non-mainstream" markings, this is a great nationality choice, Primoz!
