HobbyBoss' 1/48 scale
MiG-17F

MiG-17F

 


Hobby Boss' 1/48 scale F-111C is available online from Squadron.com

 

Construction

 

Here is my 1/48 scale HobbyBoss MiG-17F from the Egyptian Air Force in the SIX-DAY-WAR.

I used the resin replacement Neomega cockpit.

 

 

This is beautifully detail and fits perfectly – it is great to work with!

Painting of the cockpit was done after checking some pictures from older MiGs in grey. Washing and drybrushing was used to bring out the detail. I also used etched parts from Eduard for the MiG-15

 

 

The wheel area is colored and weathered like the cockpit

The maintenance area in the vertical fin was scratch built. Here I used parts that were supposed to be for the engine, along with some wiring.

 

 

Once again, painting was based on reference photos.

 

 

Painting and Markings

 

The model was painted freehand with my airbrush fitted with a 0,15mm needle.

The colors were taken from RLM, tank and brown colours.

The basic airbrush is weathered with a very thin mixture of  brown oil colours, than I filtered with some brown colours from MiG and polished every thing to get a good base fort he decals. After the decals I brushed a very thin sand-thinner mixture around the model to get the weathered desert effect and coloured up with white some details.

Post shading is done with a mixture of black-brown thinned mud colours.
