Foxhound!


Recommended Posts

This is AMK's superlative 1/48 MiG-31BM/BSM special edition kit, with metal landing gear, photoetch, and extra decals. It was a buddy build with Tamiya's 1/48 Tomcat, and this was definitely the better kit in terms of detail, ease of assembly, and value for the cost ($67 US)--and that is something, considering how good the Tamiya kit is! Begemot decals, Eduard photoetch seatbelts, Fox-One canopy decals, and that was about it. This and the Tamiya Tomcat has been my first venture back into 1/48 in years, and they definitely take up less room!

 

Cheers,  Tom

Gaz,

Thanks! I should have been paying more attention to your build for inspiration!

What a great looking Foxhound, chapeau. More than once my finger hovered over the buy-button, and it is happening again...

Cheers Rob

Rob,

Thank you! This kit was a pretty fast build, with a one-piece forward fuselage, fins integral with the fuselage sides, and a modular construction that has joins coincide with panel lines. Oh, and rear view mirrors, which is missing from the Tamiya kit. Plus, AMK listened to modelers input after the first release and added missing features such as seatbelts and metal landing gear. What’s not to love?

Cheers,  Tom
