1/48 ICM Mig-3
Posted by stikpusher on Monday, January 2, 2023 6:25 PM

This is ICM’s 1/48 Mig-3 kit that I built in the markings of one of the top scoring Soviet aces, Alexander Pokryshkin. He flew several Mig-3s in 1941-1942, before transitioning to the P-39 Airacobra. Between the two ill reputed types, he scored more confirmed kills (59) than any Western Allied ace. I built this with only the addition of a Kits World 3-D decal seat harness and a Cutting Edge instrument panel. Paints were Gunze Aqueous and Tamiya acrylic. The kit decals were translucent, especially over the topside dark colors, so aside from the underwing stars, I cobbled together the rest from my spares.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and with the rest of my 1/48 Red Air Force

Nice work, Carlos.  The MiG 3 is bigger than I thought, even allowing for perspective in the photo.

Many thanks for your kind feedback guys!

Jim, I'm living very safe these days, you do the same Wink

John, the Mig is about the same size as the Yak, perhaps a tad bit shorter, but pretty much the same wingspan, and certainly more petite than the Airacobra. Hmm

Brandon, I could say the same thing about your work Wink

Chris and Eugene, thank you.

Chris, I'm kinda partial to the La-5FN and La-7 myself. But yeah, these MiGs that started the dynasty do look good!

Eugene, I like the early war Black and Green scheme better than the two tone Gray mid to late war colors.

Accurate Miniatures Il-2 Eugene?

I had one too... until a certain cat must have been listening to Radio Berlin and took it out one day...
