Thomas Wirsching proves that no matter what genre of models one likes to build, skill and attention to detail will result in art.

Thomas,
Glad you stopped by with your really excellent Mig 15 build. I'm most impressed. I did the same years ago just to see what the aviation modeling world was up to since I was actively building USA armor. Just never left.

Your NMF is really quite well done, especially with all those variations in tone panels. Weathering makes it look like an operational Mig, not a museum piece, which is how I like 'em.

Nicely done figure and base all help to make this an exceptional display piece.

Hi Thomas

Really nice! The combination of a classic aircraft with unusual markings ticks all the boxes for me. It caught me out too - I was all set to say "Wrong era, surely?" until I read your note that this is a '90s survivor. The hint of former markings is superb.

All the best

Rowan

0It's not every day you see a Madagascar MiG! Nice touch with the faded North Korean markings. Just the right amount of weathering too!

I just finished up a 1/32 Trumpeter MiG the other day, and I have to say, yours is eight billion times better than what I was able to accomplish. Congrats to you.
