GWH 1:48 Mig-29 AS Digital Camouflage


Recommended Posts

Up all night and then some completing this Great wall hobbies Mig a fantastic kit with extreme surface detail and builder options not found in many kits. I opted to take advantage of having the engine out and the cowling covers removed. I added a few upgrade Eduard kits to enhance this build I have been planning for some time. There are at least three digital schemes between the Ukraine and Slovakian Air force all very similar with variations to the pattern and shade. I chose a Slovakian digital scheme in a tighter pixel pattern that I think looks more interesting. A mask does not exist for the scheme so careful reference photos and a mile of masking tape would be needed to hand airbrush.

Great job! 

what's that tool called you used for making the camo masking?

 

Hope you don't mind if I jump in. Alexen Model, and maybe one other company, make Photoetch tape cutting templates for cutting various shapes. I found a vendor in Australia that sells them:

Don't know who in Europe sells them. I believe they are made in China. They also make some very nice looking tools.

Truly beautiful to behold. I like the fact that you chose to display during servicing with one engine out. It looks very realistic! And I also like the way you figured out how to paint the digital camouflage using homemade masks. Very clever! Kind regards,  Dutch
