The Mig-21 chronicle (8).

Ok, a final update with photos of the finished quick diorama. Just some elements to put the Mig into context.
I used a Soviet Hex Airfield from Uschi Van Der Rosten, an Ural fuel tanker from Balaton Models, a soviet weapons loading cart by Aerobonus, photoetched wheel chocks from Brengun and a photoetched ladder from Eduard.
The gorgeous photos were shooted by Ricardo Rodríguez.

Here is the link for the whole aircraft photos: Mig-21

Time for another wonderful artist I love. These are some beautiful "Alien" works by Japanese artist Yoshihiko Sano. I don´t know what you think but in my opinion these paintinjob is simply amazing.
Mr. Sano has also sculpted some great statues for Roswell Japan, you may want to have a look: Roswell Japan

The "Spanish Hornet" work: Hasegawa 1/48.

After making  the "Spanish Adversary" with a former Top Gun´s F-18 in Spanish markings, I have had the feeling of being in the obligation to build a Hornet in the standard Spanish scheme. Of course the grey camo is not as eye-catching as the Navy´s adversary colors but with some weathering it looks really nice.
And here it is, I´m not a Lannister but I also pay my debts. Usually.
Apart from Hasegawa´s kit I also used the cockpit from Aires, the seamless air intakes from Rhino, Eduard´s AIM-9L Sidewinders and the "Export Bugs" decal sheet from F4Dable Models. 
I used Tamiya acrylics and Gunze´s Hobby colors to paint the aircraft. The weathering is done mainly with Ammo products except some effects in the flaps made with a graphite pencil.
Hope you like it.
