Built in 2015. kit oob, seatbelts and antenna wire added, Gunze and Tamiya paints for camo and finish, fuselage band and tri-color rudder are painted, rest of markings are decals from Avalon.

Model shows a Soviet aircraft that was by the Romanians in 1941. At first they kept the single green, later on the a/c got some more camo applied. The aircraft was used as an Adversary/Aggressor for training.

  1. Very cool. I've never seen those markings on a MiG

  2. Very attractive paint scheme.

  3. Very nice. The Mig-3 is one of the best looking WW2 fighters in my opinion.

  4. Another stellar build and marvelous paint scheme! Lovely.

  5. I love the unusual scheme.
    Excellent model, as usual, Reinhard!

  6. Lots of compliments on this lovely Migg, Reinhard.
    Unusual scheme it is but makes it great looking.

  7. For sure different, and for sure looks great
    Very nice work

  8. Beautifully built and painted. The MiG-3 is quite small in 1/48 and I am impressed by the delicacy of the detail at that scale - a testimony also to how well it is painted and weathered (oil paint pin wash?). The Romanians chose colors that were quite harmonious compared to the Soviet factory schemes. I am tempted to do my 1/32 MiG-3 in this camo. Thanks for the inspiration.

  9. Very nice build, it really came out looking nice! This is the first time I got to see Trumpeter's Mig-3. The Romanian markings and paint scheme looks awesome on this plane.
