While on the subject, one difference between the two 1/72nd ICM recce Foxbat kits released so far is that the RB nose has recesses for what looks like extra ECM blisters, which do not show up in the RBT instructions.

 

I cannot find any mention of this in my MiG-25 resources (Yefim Gordon "MiG-25 Foxbat: Guardian of the Soviet Borders" book, WAPJ MiG-25/31 variant briefing). 

 

Does anyone know?

 

Cheers,

The two blisters was part of the early RB navigation radar gear. The later RBT etc versions had the bigger ventral Doppler bulge.

Excellent, exactly what I was looking for  - thanks! 

 

The funny thing is, with your information I can make the diferences out on the line drawings in the Yefim Gordon book - the text does not point out the external differences.

 

The WAPJ feature does not feature a line drawing of the RBT at all. 

 

Cheers,

 

Andre
