Recommended Posts

Just finished - the Modelsvit kit of the record-breaking MiG E-166......

It's really a MiG-152M.............

....... .but the designation was changed for the FAI record-breaking flights - to fool the west.

The three stars representing the record-breaking flights......

It is a typical Modelsvit kit - highly detailed, but with large spue gates and every part had to be 'fettled' to clean them up.

 

The decal sheet is superb - as are the instructions, etched brass parts and canopy/wheel masks.

 

It fought me all the way though - but I won in the end.

 

More pictures of the build here :-  http://www.flankers-site.co.uk/model_e-166.html

 

The real thing resides at Monino.....

The E-166 completes my collection of Modelsvit 'BiG MiGs' ........
