What the Fox Bat?? An OOB Build for fun ICM MiG 25PD

Recommended Posts

Excellent news, fellas!  Thank you very much!  I started on the cans last weekend, but then came four days of uninterrupted work.  I hope to have a small update sometime tomorrow.

With a few hours to spare, here is an update on the MiG:

 

I'm not a complete stranger to Ukrainian plastic.  For size comparison I present my build of the UM Bf109G-14 in 1/48:

The port side landing gear attaches at three points and consists of five parts.  The starboard side looks just the same minus glue/paint thumbprint.

For those of you hoping for a detailed engine...  This is all there is.

The white plastic is sheet I used to solidify an unsupported seam.  The kind where one side will bow if you have to sand it.

Looking up the cans:

I should have worked a little harder on ejector pin marks.  But, I missed some.

Then there is this seam on one of the vanes....

Thanks for looking!

Another update...

    I'd better slow down before they raise my quota....

 

Anyway...  The day started with gluing the large fuselage Dorsal section to cans and bracing frames. 

I had started on the twin rudders yesterday and had them puttied ready for sanding today.  When first dry fitted, they showed some warpage:

Each one also had an intake which needed a bit of work to make look neat:

I had also closed up the nose cone with a 32g sinker glued in place with CA.

Dry fitting showed a small bit of trimming was required:

I tried cold-bending the rudders, but with seconds, there was a seam pop.  So, I went with the hair dryer.  Seems a little straighter.

Hopefully the angles and dihedral are right...Anyone wanna input?  There is room to squeeze the rudders closer...  or I'll have to add a fillet.

A side shot... She's big!

Takes up more space than a 1/32 109.

 

Anyway...  all input appreciated.  Hopefully I can find a useful plan drawing somewhere...

 

Thanks for looking!
