  1. Armory is to release a 1/72nd Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-3 kit. Source: https://m.facebook.com/story.php/?id=100064112460343&story_fbid=725151742965235 "Dear fellow modellers, we're excited to introduce You our very 1st 1/72 airplane kit - MiG-3 late production! 4 boxings planned. Estimated release date - 1st Quarter 2024" V.P.
  2. Hello everybody … my second build passed muster. It will he kit F.308 released in 1977 by Frog. Im not 100% sure on the history of the kit. I believe this was being tested as a new kit at the time Frog was going into its final chapter at the time. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/frog-f308-mig-3--1101787# Here are the sprues from the link. My kit was released by Emhar sometime in the 1990’s and these are my sprue’s. ⬇️ Albeit they were cut by the previous owner to fit into a baggie. You can clearly see they're pretty close to whats above. Im fairly certain I know which aircraft I will build. However I will make the final decision when I get closer to painting. Dennis
  3. Hello gents, just finished this, my fourth completion of the year: Trumpeter's MiG-3 in 1/32. Quite a simple kit, went together pretty well. Painted in Colourcoats ACUS37 - WW2 Insignia White ANA601 and ACS01 - A.II Blue. Kit decals were used. Thanks for your attention Cheers, Stew
  4. Hi All, Trumpeter 1/48 kit Filled the wheel arches, installed lamellas at the lower radiator inlet, changed the exhaust pipe fairings, added details in the pilot's cabin Unfortunately, almost nothing is visible in my photos I tried to present the MiG as typical for the very beginning of the war, in the summer of 1941 Painted Gunze Enjoy watching!
  5. Finally, let me show something too! The theme is (to me personally the most beautiful WW2 aircraft) the MiG-3 with UBK gun pods that was shot down in the fall of 1941, although there is no information on this aircraft. I based the model on the data provided by the famous Masimo Tessitori on his page ( https://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/mig3/shotdown5/shotdown5.html ) and I won't go into a much more detailed story about the apparatus itself. The model itself is already well known and is the original 1/48 ICM cast. I finished it around 2015 (started 4/5 years earlier), but just now I found it appropriate to take a picture of it: (and to dusted it). As I have listened to all sorts of things over the years, I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised! Despite the strange break down of wings, I had no major problems fitting! The level of detail is at an adequate level and with a little effort it is possible to raise model to a higher category. But to be true, not so new Trumpeter's MiG-3 is better for the class, but IMHO ICM is holding water pretty decent! The paint job is free handed airbrushing and the top greens are Humbrol 151 (or the new 226, I'm not sure but in any case FS34151), and Humbrol 91. The lower mix is Humbrol 65 + 47 in 1/1. Yellow 5 is brush painted. Weathering is a combination of dry pastels, oils, watercolor pencils (silver, green and gray). I had terrible problems with the airbrush because it functioned as a single action gun due to the faulty nozzle. Pardon me for such long story and for the bad photos (and the amount of them)! Hopefully next time it will be much! From https://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/mig3/shotdown5/shotdown5.html
  6. It's time to open this year as well. The first completed model this year, the MIG-3 Hobby Boss. You know everything about the model, totally relaxing to work with. This device, which I worked on, was part of the 62nd IAP of the Air Force of the Black Sea Fleet, and since I did not yet have a MIG-3 in these colors, he also came by order. Standard, Humbrol colors. Here's the picture:
  7. In 2014 I only managed to build two models which is not very impressive as modelling is one of my main hobbies, so for 2015 I really want to improve my productivity. So instead of my usual practice of having two kits on the go at a time I’m starting off 2015 with three, as I usually finish whatever I start I should be guaranteed at least three finishes for the year ! The first three kits will be Soviet WW2 (GPW) subjects as I really like the look of them but have always been put off by the lack of mainstream enamel model paint for kits of this period. It’s a shame that the WEM series of Soviet paints are not accurate as I have a drawer full of them and they airbrush beautifully. I am a dedicated enamel user and I do not like acrylics as they are (to me) too fussy, I tried using them once and did not enjoy the experience. So I bought a selection of AKAN paints (enamels) which are generally accepted as the most accurate model paints for WW2 Soviet subjects, however their formula makes them very smelly and I could not use them in the house. So I made up paint chips using the AKAN paints and matched them against easy to find enamel model paints that have a more acceptable smell. Acceptable that is to my wife who has a very keen sense of smell ! The first of my 2015 projects will be Trumpeters 1/32 scale mig-3 which has been living in my loft for years. This will be a very basic build using what is in the box without worrying too much about the kits faults, and with only a couple of aftermarket items. So here is what you get with the kit. The box And the contents And the PE Decals Cheers Dennis
  8. Old Zvezda model, but nothing is thrown at me but everything works. I'm satisfied with the work done, it looks nice in the showcase. Here's the picture.
  9. Hello, built oob. Painted with Revell Auqa Color. cheers Peter
  10. Hi, everyone! It's my next model. Made from "Hobby Boss" easy assembly. But I made cabinet from "0", riveting, Pitot tube, use etched details from "Kuivalainen" set. Main chassis from "Reskit".
  11. Trumpeter MiG-3 with Part set, resin exhausts and Montex masks. Inscription on the side means "For the motherland". Nice kit with, surprisingly, no major errors. I improved few things like a propeller blades - awfully thick in the kit. As a support for photos I used old cigarette case from Soviet Union when Saint Petersburg was a Leningrad. For Poland where I live, it was a dark and hard time. May it never come back.
  12. Welcome to my first attempt at a 'Work in Progress' post. The subject matter is this, the Trumpeter 1/32 Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-3; a kit dating back to 2004 apparently: I bought this kit on good old eBay with lots of aftermarket goodies included. The Aires cockpit set: Eduard photo-etched sets: Quickboost exhaust and Aerobonus pilot: The figure is new territory for me. I frequently see figures and dioramas at model shows and think 'I wish I could do that' but never get round to actually trying. Although the scheme depicted on the box artwork is great, I quite fancied tackling a more 'rough and ready' winter paint job. This Montex mask has just the thing, the standard camouflage with white slapped on roughly in the field to the tail and outer wings: This should provide good company in the display cabinet for my Special Hobby 1/32 I-16 type 17: Like many of us I am making the move from enamel to acrylic paint. The I-16 was finished using White Ensign enamels, for the MiG-3 I have picked up this handy set from Vallejo: And for our man in the cockpit: My main printed reference is this book from the excellent Mushroom series: It even has a profile of my chosen subject, with a name for the pilot: Lieutenant Panfilov Evgenyi Maksimovich.
  13. A quick build this one. Was the Hobbyboss Easykit Mig-3. Figured I'd give it a buy since it was only £2.50. Can't go wrong at that price. Turned out to be a decent kit. Fits together like a glove but had a very basic cockpit and was a little too simple to piece together. Still, it was enough entertainment for a Friday night and a Saturday morning so can't complain. I didn't like the schemes suggested on the box so opted for a green and white speckled, 'diseased' look that I saw online and liked the look of. Figured it would look cool and would be something different. I decided to nickname it 'Speckled Jim' There's quite a few interesting schemes available for the Mig-3 so I may end up buying more of this kit and getting a little squadron. Anyway, if you can pick the kit up cheap I recommend it. On to the pics...
  14. Just finished this project few days ago. Building process here http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234941996-mig-3-trumpeter-148/ . This model from Trumpeter is really nice. A bit scratch parts plus photoetched from Eduard. Hope you like it
  15. Hi guys! Started another project few days ago. Trumpeter MiG-3 Early version. Nice kit. Also I got Eduard photo etched set for cockpit. Artbox got few books as references With planning to get A. Pokrishkin plane... probably something like this: I know this kit got few mistakes but not critical. Going to change armour back plate on pilot seat and not to use harness straps because no one wartime photo showed it. So, lets go rock and roll Tried to deepen and make thinner pilot's seat First version armour back plate beside original one Progress at the moment. Hope you like it Ivan.
  16. Not much to say about this kit. It was very pleasant to build. The seatbelts are my first attempt to make from tape with thin wire metallic buckles. Not very much to scale, but anyway.
