[Angraf] Ghost of Kiev

Hello, modelrs!
It's been a while... from last post.
I finished some models at february, but I was busy to did some team activities, major exams...so I couldn't post them.
But now, semester is over and I got some time to enjoy hobbies :D

This time I will build Ukrainian Mig-29 which known as 'Ghost of Kiev' published by Answer.



-Inside the Cover



Cover. It is 1/33 scale.



Some specifications of Mig-29, text instructions and publisher's thank to original model author, 'Roman' and publisher 'maly modelarz(Little modeler)'

Note: Every informations from poilsh are traslated from google. So don't trust me 100%



Instruction drawing. It is same as the original model's one.



Some of the publishes...



This is the one of the original model from maly.




Left: Ghost / Right: Original
Angraft's one is simplified. all the landing gear bays are deleted,
some of the cockpit parts are also deleted.



-Build

I sticked every single parts of skeleton to 1mm paper and cut.
My weak fingers are still painful.



Then I assemnled body, and I found some errors.




I definately followed drawings, but this part causes gap between up and downside.




Anyway I streched it very hard to fit them. I just hope this action wouldn't cause any further errors.



Almost done. Now I move on to the cockpit(to finish whole skeletons.)



Main body. It was really easier than the other models.



These are parts of zvezda ejection seat.





And It's done! They are quite simple, but looks fine.
This is reason why am I like maly's model :D


Next time, I'll build its nose and some bodies.
Have a good day.

I noticed photos size are too large. I'll resize past ones. Sorry.



Build continued with firing handle and stick.


Next, I began noses.


Skeletons are need to be sanded their edge to fit with bodies.





I assembled cockpit with body.
There are some gaps caused, but I ignored because they will be hidden by canopy.





I concerned about any erorrs,
but thankfully, patterns are matched very well.



This is all I've worked on today.

To be continued...

Thank you, people :D
Here's other builds.



It was hard work to fight with aeroplane's body.
When I fit them without glue, I saw many little gaps.
So I spend most time to remove them and It is still happening.




At least upper plate fitted well.




First problem: Some errors occured between skeleton and body's length.
Skeleton have to be shorten at least 1.5mm. And tip of the plane is tapered, So I sanded those tip.





These flates need to be reinforced. If don't it would be hard to attach each part without gap.




Rear main body is done. It looks fine to me.



Now move on to the front main body.




Second problem: Another gaps between skeleton and body again.
I'm working to lengthen skeleton

Thank you YOAV :D


Here's other one goes.




After reinforcement, I attached Front main body to the skelton.
Upper result is my best as I could. I couldn't remove further gaps...
This looks quite big in front view but,





Looks better in diagonal view.




Lower part.




Then I worked rest of body.





Start at lower,





End at Upper.
I only glued its edges, not a sides. Because sides will attached with finish part.

Thank you, Shalom :D



It's sealing time...




Thankfully, these sealing parts fitted very well.
Also they covered gap between main bodies.




Then I assembled rear wing skeletons.
I hope there is no more gaps at least here.




Now move on to the jet air intake - engine skeleton.




It's late time to solve this big problem.
Anyway how can I solve this...



To be continued.

Beautiful work! You handle the small gaps and misalignments very well. Interesting camouflage livery, it looks like the pixel structure has inspired the air force.
