1/48 AMK Mig-31BM

Recommended Posts

After a long break I finally made a start on this one. I had this kit in my stash for nearly a year now.
AMK's giant Mig is an absolutely beautiful kit. I'm building it OOB, gears up and refueling probe extended as it would appear lining up behind a tanker.

 

I used AKAN 73005 for the interior. I'm not really satisfied with how the pit came out, but not much will be visible once the canopy is closed.

Cockpit in place. I still have to finish the instrument panels and seats.

After some careful dry fitting, the gear doors closed up beautifully even though they were designed to be built in the open position.

I tried to simulate carbon deposits on the exhaust.

This is where I'm at with the beast at the moment.

Thank you guys!

Tiny update on the cockpit. I painted the instrument panels. Normally I'd add decals to the dials, but again, not much will be visible once the canopy is in place.
