Hello guys 

 

I don't like aircrafts being full gray, so MiG-25 was no exception, either. 

When ICM released their MiG-25RBT, a friend of mine sent me some info about a three-coloured RBF. 

I searched the internet and found out about RBF and the changes I had to do on the RBT nose. 

So I purchased the kit and started modifying it. 

I have made a lot of progress, so I will upload photos step by step to let you know what I did. 

 

This is the kit

This is the bulge under the RBF's nose. I also have to delete the cameras and make new panels.

And here is what I did to make the bulge. I bent the plastic and filled the gap with plastic and superglue.

Some weight...

ICM has no instruments in the cockpit. So I used the ones from Revel's Tornado GR.4 and glued them on the clear part.

Some clamps for the intakes

And some paint when everything was together 

I followed the instructions from Begemot decals 

The sand is a mix of H66 and H310, 4 to 1 ratio. 

The green is H340. 

All lightened with white and sprayed freehand.

Thank you exdraken! 

There is a 3rd camo colour, H305 also lightened with white. 

The Begemot decals went on well, but the ICM decals are too thin and didn't like them.

The grey areas at the nose and the fins are H317. 

For the engines I used Alclad Steel.

Thanks guys! 

It's almost ready, but I had a disaster with the outer petals of the exhaust nozzles. I left them out to paint them easily, 

but when I tried to glue them on position, I had to cut off every locating pin there was for them. They were obstracted by the vertical fins, the lower little fins and between the engines. So they couldn't get to position well and I have to live with it. One day I will try to fill the gap with plastic sheet or something. 

 

Here are the nozzles

And the model so far
