  1. Very nice job, sir….love that weathering/finish/detail work you achieved.

  2. What a great brute of an aircraft! Looks like it was “rode hard, left out to dry”. Not your pretty airplane, purposeful and menacing. An impressive and well done build. I’ve been taken with the aircraft ever since Belenko defected.

  3. Very impressive. Great result with a kit I am told “presents challenges.”

  4. I like the Mig-25. Along with the flanker, It’s the only russian jet I have any desire to build. Your worn & abused Mig is a gem Rafael, though reading all that AM stuff you listed, it sounds like you payed twice for this kit

  5. Great job and photography, Rafael.
    This one’s supposed to be one of my next projects and I’m grateful for the shopping list …

  6. Very realistic!

  7. Very nice! Heavy weathering gives it a very “used” look.

  8. Very nice work. Too heavily weathered by my opinion, but the techniques used are extremely well done!

  9. Really well done, Rafael.
