ICM 1/72 MiG-25BM Foxbat


Recommended Posts

Morning all,

 

My modelling time has slowed a bit after a busy month getting out and about photographing real aircraft, but I've been slowly tinkering away in the background and have finished my latest build this morning, ICM's awesome 1/72 MiG-25. Despite the fairly complex assembly, the model comes together beautifully with relatively little filling and sanding required. Built completely OOB, I used MRP Traffic Grey for the main colour, while the details and metallic areas were painted using my more usual Hataka Orange Line and Alclad lacquers respectively. Overall, a fabulous kit of this absolute brute of a jet

Shaun, your models are very impressive. Any thoughts on doing a WiP for your next one so we can see how you get such great results ?

 

Great MiG-25BM btw.

Thanks Robert, I don't really bother with WIPs as it invovles setting the photo tent up each time, which is just far too much hassle! But, I'm happy to do one with dodgy phone pics on my next build if you're interested :)

Hi Shaun, even with 'dodgy phone pics' l am sure they will be useful.

Fabulous looking Foxbat and great to see another ICM kit of this put together.  I have the PD version on the go at the minute and agree with your comments regarding the build process.

That really is a brute of a jet! Fantastic, neat work as always Shaun!

Really tempted to build that to go alongside my 31.

I'll soon be building my 31 to go alongside this... 😎
