Back to MiG-3 Main

I decided to build a MiG-1 model from the simplified but accurate HobbyBoss MiG-3 kit.
I altered the length of the fuselage and the engine details as written in the I-200 and MiG-1 chapter.
The kit has a bad cockpit area. For this reason I cut off all things from the original kit cockpit and scratch built a new one from plastic sheet. The canopy is home vacuformed.
My model has the shorter underbelly water radiator and the typical landing gear doors. Besides, I made new wheels and exhaust pipes by resin.
The painting is from this profile.
