Airfix MiG-17 #7 I’ve been framed

The MiG is ready for primer.  However, before that could happen I needed to paint the canopy frames Alclad Dull Aluminium so that you’d see that as the inside frame color.  Wiled I was at it, I sprayed a bit of Dull Aluminum in the intake tunnel to cover some minor touch up and also painted the underside of the tail under the burner can.  I also assembled the two drop tanks.  While I am not going to use them on this model, I know this isn’t the last Airfix MiG-17 I’ll be building and most of them carried the wing tanks, so this will get me ahead of the game in the future.  Also, I want to use the opportunity to do a little research and see what I can do to improve the kit parts.

I must have this
