ICM 1/48 MiG-25RBT

Recommended Posts

Here is my recce-Foxbat.

I started the build before Revell and ICM released the corrected nose, so I had to fix it on my own. The rest is OOB except for seatbelts and some extra details in the wheel wells and in the cockpit. I also corrected the angle of the main landing gears a little.

The first time i tried Mr. Paint colours. (Maybe I could have started with something smaller...). Great to work with, except for the horrible smell!

I really enjoyed the build, this is a great kit of an iconic aircraft, one of my all-time favourite subjects!

Looks great. All I hear are good things about this kit (nose error excepted) so I am looking forward to building mine.

Lovely stuff.

 

(I bought one of these from H's with the price slashed. Let me guess, the one with the wrong nose?

Is there a replacement nose available?)

 

👍👍

Cold War Studio do one.

But it is not wrong per se, just an early version not suitable for some late markings....

Thanks! They are a bit too upright, the plane looks like it is standing in its toes. So i just bent them a little to get a more correct angle. I read this in Airfix Model World, where our friend General Melchett did a great build of this subject. So I trusted him and just compared to the pictures of the landing gears after his modifications.

In fact, it is a bit wrong. The nosebulge did not exist on early types, so that is correct. But ICM:s nose lacks the "hump": See Cold War Studio resin nose (left) compared to ICM:s original offering below. But this was pretty easy to fix, I just put a piece of sprue at the right place to bend the nose to the correct shape.

You are of course right in the hump... nur I do not think that was corrected in later boxings either...

I did somthing similar in my "Egyptian" RB....
