Company: Advanced Modeling
There is a new player in the Aircraft aftermarket world, and they hail from Russia: Advance Modeling. I had not heard of them till they appeared on the IPMS Reviewer list and I thought I would try out their resin exhaust nozzle set for the new Zvezda MiG-29 (9-13). The resin used is a light gray color, captures very fine details, and is easy to cut using a razor saw or equivalent. The package is simple but effective, with parts in clear bags held within a plastic shell that, when a single staple is removed, is hinged at the other end and opens up like an oyster. The instruction sheet is in English and Russian, and unfolds with easy to understand and follow graphics.
Each exhaust nozzle is comprised of four parts, with each piece needing to be removed from it's pouring sprue with a razor saw. After which, the cut area just needs a few swipes with a sanding stick to clear up the joint. Before assembling the parts I would recommend that now would be the time to paint the interior, as it's easy to access the interior on each component. Once the paint dried, I used some CA adhesive to bond the resin parts together. It's that simple.
