I see what you mean.


If I have bad results, I may make them out of wood ( on my mini lathe ).



Thanks for the info.

Thumbs up Mig 15 construction start

First up on the build is the Hobby Model Mig-15 ( catalog number 99 ).

It is all silver with the Polish markings and a nose number. The silver finish on this kit is great. It is matt ( not shiny ) and looks good. If any improvement can be done is to make different panels in different shades of silver and maybe some weathering.


The Fuselage is simple barrel like sections ( all round ).


Parts here:

I started in the back. For this build, I am forced to make the air brakes bays as the part is in white and must be cut out. This is a bit delicate since the section is thin. However, it is manageable.

The engine exhaust is a simple cone and cylinder with an end plate ( I used the laser cut frame part ). The main trick was to insert a card disk in the tail and apply quick super glue around. This is Yoav's trick to keep the cylinder shape from deforming.

It is then inserted in the tail with only a tiny portion extended beyond the fuselage.

Actually, I have half the plane done. Just takes me time to post the progress.

Your builds really inspired me to tackle my old VK-1 model once again

Are you planning to build one of this kit in 'stripped-off' configuration or simply build them out-of-booklet? either way, i believe this would be an awesome build. Following with interest

This is very ambitious task. Good luck.

Do you mean the fuselage separated to show the engine?

No, I will build the kit as is.


Thanks

The trend now for all new models is to go to plastic wheels instead of wood.

I have some for other kits as well.

the hobby is going upscale with accessories now. Next step will be 3D printing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Thanks

Isaac
And I hear you... that 3D printing thing is coming our way in one form or another.

I'm curious about how you are going to prepare the wheels; resin, right?
