This kit was presented
to me by very far time, together a MiG.21 (see previous submission); it was a
cheap but very complete box from the '90s and is a very beautiful kit, all with
engraved panel lines. I carefully completed the interior with a decaled
instrument panel, its seat and a spare pilot.
I painted the interiors
with Humbrol 120 enamel. After some research in my stash' documents, I
found it would be painted in 30118 and 34079 upper, with pale blue unders, all
done with H. 29, 30 and 122/IAF 4.
I selected the Atoll missiles and
two launchers at the pods and then, after the gloss paint, I applied the decals
included in the box. They are a bit fragile but reacted quite well with the
A layer of matt cote (Humbrol)
sealed the paintwork. It is a very fun kit to built and I recommended it
to anyone should have the chance to find it.
Happy modeling to all ARCair friends!
