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, almost like it wanted to be built. 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.
