Trumpeter 1/48 MiG-3 (early)
Couldn’t find a lot about this aircraft other than what is on https://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/mig3/german-capt/germig2.html There is also a photo of the aircraft here. The fit of the kit was pretty good with the exception of the cowl panels which needed a lot of brute force. Trumpeter erred in the area at the front of the exhaust, this box-like shape is more for later versions. I removed them with a razor saw and reshaped them. The colours are based on Massimo’s observations so may not be correct. I tried to show the difference in colour between the metal and wood surfaces. Again…this may not be 100% correct but I like it. The codes were home made, swastika came from an Eagle Strike Bf 109F sheet and the Balkenkruz came from a Techmod sheet
