Mig-31BM Foxhound Review Build 1:48


Recommended Posts

You know what? I thoroughly enjoyed the build, and if that's not what modelling should be about then my name is Michael Caine ^_^

Mike, that's exactly what modelling should be about. Far too many take things far too seriously.

Great build by the way, might have to try one out for myself.

Cracking job Mike.

It is hard to tell from the pictures just how large this beast actually is.

Better collar Christopher when he gets home from school as it needs a pilot to give a better idea of scale.

Hope that is gonna be available for the Britmodeller tables at shows. :tease: Some of us are still waiting for ours to arrive, I think you aught to build something from Mach2 now as penance for showing off with this.

That is a seriously nice build Mike. I doubt mine will be as good.

Hi Mike!

You did a marvelous job on that beast.

I will be taken as a reference build and inspire a lot of modelers.

Me art first :)

I really like the rendering of the painting and weathering... very sharp.

Congrats Sir!

Absolutely stunning model Mike, helped by accurate info from Gabor (thank you for that Gabor!)

You've raised the bar so high you'll have to build a spacecraft to get it back for us mere mortals!

"I've just noticed that I forgot to unmask the landing lights :blush:"

By the Gods - He is human after all!

That is lovely Mike, enjoyed watching it come together too!

May I be a pain, is it possible to get a photo of the wheel well / air-brake area? :)

Thanks Radders... seeing as you asked so nicely and I was taking another pic of the static wicks to add to the initial post, here you go :)

Such beautiful model of such ugly aircraft.

This is absolutely one of the best aircraft models I have ever seen.

Superb painting and very subtle, but distinct weathering and just perfect assembly.

Of course pictures are also awesome, but this is normal for Mike.

Well, I don't want to make my own MiG-31, when I saw this one. That doesn't have any sense. :)
