  1. Comrades, thanks for visiting and for the feedback! Always happy to showcase something interesting... )
  2. A decree of the CPC of October 24, 1940, was issued to promote the aviation industry in a sporting direction. The country not only had to develop in the military and civilian spheres, but also to achieve heights in sports and racing competitions. In the first half of 1941, plant №1 named after Stalin, along with testing and debugging production combat MiG-3 were tested and two converted machines for sports. The engine was reworked to increase speed characteristics, which in turn resulted in minor modifications to the cowling fairings and air intakes. The weight of the aircraft was also reduced by removing an extra tank, radio equipment and weapons. To improve manoeuvrability, ailerons and elevator bars were experimentally fitted with additional bumpers. Slight changes were also made to the cockpit. But the sporting achievements could not come true, because the war broke out. Due to the difficult situation on the outskirts of Moscow, the decree of the GKKO No.741 dated 8 October 1941 and the next day it was ordered by the NKAP No.1053, which ordered the immediate evacuation of the plants. In this connection, in October 1941, plant No.1 was evacuated to Kuibyshev to the territory of plant No.122. Production of the MiG-3 was also transferred there in the first instance. That was the period when the traces of these flying machines were lost. As the country needed every warplane, most likely they were returned in operation and they have deservedly served the Motherland... P.S. This is what if...? (An alternative story woven into the real one. ) Thanks to our colleague Dmitry Lebedev for the "real photoshop", photo and sidebar! ) Painting and varnishing: urethane-acrylic GSI Mr.Color, acrylic PC88, varnish Tamiya, futura, + simple pencil.

  7. wood and fabric effects are first class. Having scratch built an H-B CC flying boat I know how tricky the star strut arrangement can be to get right - you have got it just right. P Colleagues, thanks for stopping by and for the feedback!
