MiG Group Build recap

First, I would like to thank all the participants to this group build, wheter you finished your builds or not. I must admit, I expected slightly larger participation but I am nevertheless proud of the resulting builds and I hope our group build will server as an inspiration for future MiG builds.

In honour of 80th anniversary of establishment of Mikoyan i Gurevich construction bureau, these are the completed builds, listed in order from oldest to the latest MiGs.

  1. All excellent builds, sometimes quantity isn’t equal to quality 😉
    Still I’m surprised no MIG-35 was built in this GB, given the fact that lately we’ve seen a few brands release this plane in 1/72 and 1/48.

  2. Thanks for running the GB, Sebastijan! I like your Mig-29SMT a lot.

  3. why didn’t you include me?

    • Hi George.

      I am sorry this happened, but there are two reasons. You did not open a new thread in the MiG GB group and I didn’t notice your article and second, you missed the (extended) deadline by 2 days, unfortunately. Very nice MiG nevertheless.

      • Thanks for getting back to me, I did in fact try to post it on 31 Dec but iModeler wasn’t playing ball (I noticed a couple of other people had problems, too). Oh, well, never mind, it was a great idea and you got a good number of quality MiGs.

  4. A masterful Mig collection! They all look great. I meant to participate, but I never around to adding a new Mig to my stash.

  5. A very nice line up of MiG’s! Great work everyone.

  6. Nice collection of MiG’s, well done all, thanks to Sebastijan for the GB !!

  7. Nice to see the GB result! And proud to make part of it. May I ask to correct my id in my mig-29 photos, please? it’s @magrus , thanks

  8. Sebastijan, @inflames
