Mig-19 S 1/48 HiPM

Recommended Posts

Hi again

One of my side by side project is this beauty,Mig-19S

I had trumpy one ,but gave it as a present to my very good friend,and bought this one.The difference in quality you can see first time you open the box(2 times smaller than trump),but I have no problem with that

On to the work! I don't know if this is a short run kit,but it look's like one. The fit is ok ( for me) ,sink marks only on the fairings of the horisontal stabs.I've put the resin cockpit,and a lot of weight in the nose,hope that will be enough, because the plastic is thick(2.5 and 3 mm on some areas ).

PE sheet looks great ,but not using the whole freet.The time I fixed charger for my camera,I've glued major parts

Hi guys I just joined.

I have muliples of the HiPM MiG-19S kit and i like it better than the Trumpeter kit. It is much more accurate in outline and a lot more fun to build. YES it is quite a bit more work but that is what I like because I will like the results more. One thing I noticed about the kit pictures in this thread is that it has detail in the wheel-wells which none of mine have, and I have all the variants of the kit. Did you put the detail in your self or is that molded in. I noticed the ejector pin mark and mine is lacking that also.

i just discovered that in the last couple of weeks, "Pavla Models has come out with a wheelwell detail kit. I decided to just use the Eduard cockpit detail set but will also use the Pavla Wheelwell set also. The recommended 50g of nose mass I think is a bit much but about 35g is required. The hard part is finding a spot where to put it all. As a detail note; the cockpit color on the MiG-19 was a light gray for the Russian and Chinese built aircraft and a lite blue-gray on the Czech built aircraft almost identical, if not actually so, to RLM-76.
