Great looking MiG-17 Isaac. Nice with the separate control surfaces.

I like the landing gear details, including the bays. The overall artwork gives this model a very realistic and attractive look. Very well done!

This is collaborative effort with Gary ( MacSongLi ). Gary does all of the art work and I act as the technical advisor in both aircraft information and also in the artistic finish of the model. Gary deserves most of the kudos since he takes the information he collected and runs it by me. After a few iterations we obtain the desired results. Gary has done superb work even before we teamed up.


What makes this effort work is that we both respect each other and listen to inputs and comments. We do not take it personally when input is different than what we want, but rather strive to make improvements.

In the past, I had good and bad partners. The good ones listen and incorporate valid pointers. The bad ones always become defensive, take things personally, lash out and basically fail to make a good model. Those, I always stop and do not proceed with. I do not tolerate small minded abuse.

Anyhow, more to come. This model and future ones.

That's a very impressive recolor and build. It looks very realistic.

Cool Canopy

I decided to use a canopy I purchased years ago from GPM.pl . This is a Mig-15 one, but it is the same for the Mig-17F.

However, this was my last one and I have at least two more Mig-15s to build, so I made a positive mold. I will be able to vacuform my own canopies later on from this one.

and the frames

Here is another view of the cockpit

and glued on

I will go over the canopy later on and clean up the glue from the edges of the frames.

Exclamation Drop tanks- future work

In addition to the model being done, I will add the two wing drop tanks a bit later on.


For reference, here are my 1/32 scale drop tanks from a plastic model I built years ago.

The paper tanks are next.
