It appears that Eduard isn’t the only company doing a MiG-21.  See AZ’s entry here.

The 2013 modeling project (entry 10)

Date: 1/27/2013

Time: 10:26 a..m.- 11:17 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.-10:04 p.m.

Session time: 1 hour 55 minutes

Total time for the Year: 12 hours 1 minute.

Two separate sessions on this day.  Did not make a lot of substantive progress.  Paint on the SSBN, but it needs another coat due to my overly thinned paint.  Began work on a long-term project on the new Sword Ki-44.  The P-40 and the MiG-21 are in a long term holding pattern.

The 2013 modeling project (week2)

The second week of the project is in the books.  I modeled on four occasions totalling 5.4 hours.

This is an increase over the first week.  I have no illusions that I can keep this pace up.  At this pace, I’d finished the year with 221 hours of actual building.  There is simply no way that is going to happen.

The P-40 is close to being done.  The SSBN is a simple kit that is taking a bit longer than it should since I am trying to concentrate on making it a construction and painting exercise.  The MiG-21 is moving, but not as fast as I’d like.

My goal this week is to post more photos with these entries, as I think it will make them a little more interesting.
