  1. Pure plastic. A very quick test build of the new Eduard MiG-21PFM 1/72 nd scale kit. This is the kit to be released in January next. This is a PP version, a Pure Plastic kit, straight out of box. Just to see what the finished kit would look like. Find pitfalls for my other “full colour” build of this new kit. Do some testing. Here is the fully built kit on a MiG-21HUD glass. (OK I know the PFM did not have this HUD version but still. . . ) Nothing added, just the kit as it is, no detailing, no extras, not a drop of paint. Just glue and the pure plastic kit. I was interested to see what can one do in few days from the plastic parts. The only work carried out – apart from gluing all the parts together – was the cleaning of all the parts after cutting them from the sprues. Not easy to make the position of sprue gates invisible due to plastic flow in these places. But as much as possible they were sanded and polished to make them “invisible”. Under normal conditions the first layer of primer paint would hide almost all of them. But here . . . Although there is no flash on the parts but still a very thin line is visible where the two sided injection moulding tools meet. The lines were lightly sanded and polished to get rid of them. Tried to avoid any glue marks to be able to show the plastic parts in their pure beauty. Details of the Gp-9 gun pack This is all. The kit can be built in few hours straight out of box (OK in a weekend), it took me few days only because I left some drying time for liquid cement and the extra cleaning as well as doing some other traditional things like sleeping, eating . . . Some more photos of this kit soon. Best regards Gabor
