MiG-3 in winter colours
This is my attempt to build nice looking model from HobbyBoss Easy Assemble kit (1/72 scale – HB has EA kits in 48 too). On the other hand this is probably the best MiG-3 kit in this scale and also I’ve wanted to play with the imitation of a temporary winter camo – there are a lot of interesting WWII subjects to build using this technique.
I’ve added instrumental panel, gun sight, seat belts and some other details to cockpit. Exhausts, machine guns and all air intakes were drilled out. Navigation and landing light were added. HB forgot about flaps, so I’ve added this too. And finally I’ve added rivets.
Painted with Vallejo colors, temporary white was made with several layers of Humbrol enamel chipped with brush and enamel thinner. Full WIP thread is here – http://imodeler.com/groups/work-in-progress-aircraft/forum/topic/172-hobbyboss-mig-3
Hope you’ll like this little MiG!
