Nigel, i had a look on this kit today. And i have to say this is very very crisp and from other reviews i read there are no fit issues.
I was almost buying it, but i did not want to spent the money. i cannot wait to follow your wip building this massive beauty.

Good choice for the GB

Thanks Thomas, I hope I can do justice to this beast of a bird.

There is one fault with this kit, but I am well aware of it.
I'm hoping that I can construct the plane in such a way that I can remove the whole engine to display seperately when completed.





I will know when I have part of the model done.

I reckon the internal tail pipe wouldn't be a crucial scratch build component and if you can rustle up some spare exhaust nozzles etc. maybe even cast and mold the ones from the kit ?

you know where I am going with this line of thinking [biggrin]

I reckon making it so you can pull an engine in and out will be fraught with danger and damage,
I would think replicating the few parts required to display an engine (or two ?) as a separate part of the display would save on future problems, plus you get to learn how to cast resin parts [biggrin]

I am not going to follow the manual order of construction, so I shall start with the two Ejector Seats.



I shall construct the seats and then add the Eduard PE.

Thanks for looking.

These pictures just begs to be interpreted as a dio!! Maybe a solution to the removable engine problem [smile]

Thanks Daniel, it's what gave me the idea after seeing these photos.
This MiG is basically a rectangular box with two engines slotted in and a cockpit welded to the front....very clever.

This is what she looks like without the engines. ..



It would put you in mind of a double barrelled shot gun.
There is enough internal detail that I can't see what is stopping me from doing it like this, and then insert the engines.

Pure Genius.

Well, a good mornings work on the cockpit seats and, so far, no mishaps. (Has the GB curse finally passed on to someone else! ).

Photos...everyone likes photos...





Thanks for looking.
