This recently completed 1/48 MiG is my first & only Trumpeter kit. I was impressed with how well the parts fit, it was an extremely easy model to build. The decals were also very nice. David Mills @davem has a photo posted of a similar MiG -3 ,in his tribute to his friend Alan Bottoms , which inspired me to complete mine with the same paint scheme and markings . It’s a beautiful airplane, looks like it might have made a good racer at the Reno Air Races.
