Attack 1/144 Shenyang JJ-6 (FT-6)
By Matt Bittner
IntroductionJJ-6/MiG-19UTI (sic) arrived to the Internet Modeler "offices", I knew I had my chance. While the sprue gates are a little larger due to the "limited-run" nature of the kit, they are not bad as some other manufacturers. Plus, when you look at the level of detail that is contained within the box, it's a really nice change to some of the more "chunkier" kits. Since there was never a MiG-19UTI (as I mentioned in my First Look) I decided to build the Pakistani bird. In all honesty I wanted to build one as flown out of Bangladesh, but there are no decals for the country, and I was too lazy to make my own.
ConstructionApoxie, and smoothing it out with water and a brush to avoid sanding. The same can be said for the underside, since the longer fin-strake was also part of the starboard fuselage, and Apoxie was used to fill in that gap as well. Jammy Dog to outline, then filling in with Tamiya tape. After it was masked was when I glued the canopy on, and noticed it too needed some filling. So back out with the Apoxie to smooth it in. then coated it with Future and after that was dry - a couple of days - I masked the areas for the aluminum (rear and nose intake). After that was sprayed and masks removed, I then started to add the decals.
My thanks to Attack for sending the kit to review. It is appreciated and I enjoyed building it.
