Belenko's 'Bat ++FINISHED++


Recommended Posts

For this group build I'll be doing Hasegawa's 1/72 Mig-25 Foxbat.  Specifically, the one used by Lt. Belenko to defect to Japan in 1976.

MUCH easier task this time. In fact I'm surprised just how basic this kit is !

Fuselage closed up, starting on the air intakes.  Some kit's have ejector pin marks, this one on the other hand has full double Gloucester cheeses sticking out of the intake walls !! :rage:

I now face a great modelling dilemma - Belenko's aircraft on its famous flight did not carry missiles. But come on, it's a Foxbat - I can't not arm it !!! :hmmm:

I didn't arm mine for the 70s NATO GB as I thought it looked cool without

Nope, and I am not sure if it will work from a PC. I tried to place a link to your picture, but it didn't work.

 

Hopefully you have more luck.

Cheers, Peter
