First the usual “thank you very much” to Aires for providing us another of their excellent resin items for review. We at IPMS USA truly appreciate your support…
This is a simple set for Trumpeters’ Mig-19 “Farmer”, in that the kit seat does not provide a figure for those of us who actually use them for scale and human factor in a kit. Consisting of five molded resin items (torso with legs, head/helmet, two arms, and ejection seat upper brace) on one pour stub, it is simple to primer and paint for a final product. All ensconsed on one ejection seat.
AND, a painting guide is included for the seat and figure. Yay!
First, the seat appears correct and accurate in design and layout. Simple gray paint and it’s done!
I tend to attach the arms and head before painting, as I have found there are still gaps that need filling with the resin and superglue or epoxy to attach the parts… this way I can primer the whole thing and paint it in fairly rapid order.
