  1. Great looking Mig 3.
    This has to be one of the best looking Soviet warplanes of this era.

  2. Came out wonderful, David!

  3. Very nice achievement, David @mentaldental

  4. Wonderful MiG fighter David, @mentaldental! 👍 I have that kit also and your model certainly inspires me to put it in the "near future" queue! Cheers🍻

  5. This is great. Thanks for doing it - it's inspiration to me for the one hiding in the closet stack.

  6. Really nice MiG-3, David. This is the scheme I personally prefer when I get around to my 1/32 Trumpeter version. IMHO, a well-weathered solid green looks better on the MiG-3 than the various two-tone camo versions in black/black green plus light green or squiggles that are usually built. They end up looking too acid in color for my taste (even if they are favored by the experts on Soviet painting regulations) . I like how you have varied the tones along rivet and panel lines.

  7. Great looking MiG David, nice job!

  8. Sharpe looking build!

  9. Simply beautiful.

  10. Great looking Mig David. Love the tiger stripped Mig 3's that flew in the Leningrad defence 👍

  11. Just another beauty - simple as that!
