Title: New Drawing of Early MiG-3
Post by: John Thompson on May 09, 2011, 09:27:27 PM
I wish the local hobby shop (Aviation World in Toronto), which used to be a gold mine for East European aviation books and magazines, would go back to stocking more of these items. I'd love to get a copy of the recent issue of Aviatsiya i Vremya where this drawing appeared; I got this image from Scalemodels.ru:

Av. World was where I stumbled across (and eagerly purchased!) such treasures as Leipnik's "Yak-9 - Soldiers of the Sky", the Skrzydla special issues on the Yak-1b and Yak-9P, and Stankov's "Yak Fighters in Soviet Air Force Regiments 1941-1945 Vol.2", as well as numerous issues of AiV and other foreign-language aviation magazines. Ah, the good old days - I must be getting old... No, wait a minute - I am old - when did that happen?! ;)

Don't worry John, it happens to us all (I suppose it beats the alternative).  Nice drawings, by the way.  Makes me want to work on the Trumpeter MiG-3 I recently picked up.
