great subject ! I see a fuselage in the package but it says conversion for Eduard's kit. Have an option for Eduard and just simply build it from the '' box '' ?

This conversion mean that it need landing gear and cockpit canopy from Eduard kit ;) very conversion as you see :))

Well done and nice result!
Mine is just started (no photos yet... If you agree I will publish my work here)
Funny to see that yours had a hole in the wing at the same place than mine...

No problem to put your build here, I am not owner of the topic, just starter ;) Hole in same place... so we have case of quantum teleportation of state and Domi generate same empty space on two different places!!!

OK, time to begin mine!
I will represent the aircraft abandoned on a field (see photo). For that I will use as a base... A piece of wall! The texture of that element is excellent to represent a ground with grass...
First step: the tail is in place and putty used

White primer on the cockpit interior; canopy masked and primer also on the base

Post by: No.1 on March 18, 2019, 07:50:09 PM
Yes, base, I forget that I have to make for my sample

good !

Cockpit interior color airbrushed. First time I used MIG paint... Seems more green than blue... Not really a problem for what I want to do anyway (normally you will not see the cockpit interior)
And for the base, Gunze H72

True, not good match but who cares in this case ;)

Solution was simple for the cockpit color: I've slightly sanded the canopy so it became opaque (no need to build nor paint the interior!!!).
I've also worked on the base that is ready now to receive the grass...

Wise one... you catch specific redish soil which can be seen on many area in Russia

A little bit of miliput needed to correct excess of sanding at the beginning of the build, just behind the cockpit
Title: Re: MiG-21 Analog
Post by: modellius on May 21, 2019, 11:41:41 AM
still lot to do but you'r progressing nicely, well done

Watching some photos of "my" Analog, I've constated that the nose and the exhaust are covered with a cache. To do that: miliput...
Looks good for the nose; not finished yet for the exhaust

Excellent what details you observe on such small kit!!!

Thank you my friend

Post by: draken35 on June 07, 2019, 09:24:52 PM
Miliput sanded. The border of the exhaust cache is added (Tamiya white masking tape; followed by a little bit of Klir to fix it stronger)
Title: Re: MiG-21 Analog
Post by: No.1 on June 07, 2019, 09:55:51 PM
Tape will stay there permanently?
Title: Re: MiG-21 Analog
Post by: draken35 on June 07, 2019, 10:07:40 PM
I think yes because KLir will play the rule of glue...
Title: Re: MiG-21 Analog
Post by: draken35 on June 09, 2019, 06:33:13 PM
Exhaust cache needed a little bit of putyy. To be said that the masking tape is weel fixed with Klir  :-green
Preparation for painting...
Title: Re: MiG-21 Analog
Post by: No.1 on June 09, 2019, 06:41:37 PM
Painting... :))
Title: Re: MiG-21 Analog
Post by: draken35 on June 10, 2019, 08:03:05 AM
Yes, time to do that...
Title: Re: MiG-21 Analog
Post by: Second Air Force on June 10, 2019, 02:09:48 PM
The method of using tape will work just fine--the vacuform F-89 I built in the 1980s has some tape on it and it is still in good shape after all these years!

White primer reveals that some putty is still needed. I have to correct that!!!
