Trumpeter 1/72 MiG-31 Foxhound


Recommended Posts

Morning all,

 

My third completion of the year, Trumpeter's MiG-31. I finished this model back in March shortly after Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and thought it prudent to hold it back given the timing and sensitivities around the war. Hopefully I've not jumped the gun even now in that respect... The kit itself is pretty nice, although it became a bit of a slog, with lots of mistakes along the way, including snapping one of the fins off during decalling.... The decals themselves were largely useless, so I ended up purchasing a Begemot sheet to use in their place, otherwise what you see is how it comes from the box. Finished using MRP for the main grey with the details picked out in Hataka Orange Line and Alclad as usual.

Nice job Shaun, especially given it is such a stencil hog, you've done well with it. I do find them an attractive aircraft in an angular sort of way.

Stencil hog indeed! Took a few evenings to get them all on, a proper labour of love....

Nice job Shaun!:clap2: True, the stencils are too bright


Yes, in hindsight they could have done with being toned down a touch...
