    This is my recently completed Flogger in Polish markings. I ran out of steam on this build last year and put it on the shelf. Jets aren't my forte and adding a bunch of complicated aftermarket resin and photo-etch (Aires exhaust and cockpit sets, Eduard wheels and wheel well sets, Dream Model pitot and Model Maker decals) didn't help my motivation. The build was further along than I had remembered so it really didn't take much to complete the work. In my rush to finish it, I really didn't weather this jet properly outside of a pastel panel wash. Once I forged ahead with the attachment of the landing gear, I felt the kit too fiddly to do any additional weathering.

    The actual build is spread out over a couple of posts but if you are interested in seeing the journey, please see the posts below...

    Look great John. No need to start a new thread though for the finish.

    Thanks everyone!

    Gotcha. For some reason, I thought that Start to Finish and Completed Kits were to be utilized together but I can see now that they are separate. Makes things easier too!

    That is a very sweet looking Mig. I can see all the sticky outy thingies that would make it real fiddly. I like your attention to detail, it makes me see where I am lacking in skill

    Thanks for the compliments! The build was interrupted by some long breaks but I'm glad it finally got done. My shelf of doom is now empty!
