Title: Hobby Boss MiG-3 Article
Post by: mbittner on June 24, 2008, 01:54:08 AM
Massimo,

Honza's Hobby Boss MiG-3 article is missing a few images.  Plus, in the cockpit shots is the statement:

"On the left: the canopy was improved by struts, instrument panel, photoetched seat belts."  I think what is meant is "cockpit" and not "canopy", yes?

I just picked up the kit and it looks awesome.  One of these decades I'll have to start it...  :)

Awesome it is! For better or worse, I decided to convert one to the early MiG-3 configuration, and it's been kind of a long project. It would be wonderful if someone (Trumpeter, perhaps, since they've already covered it in 1/48 scale, although Hobby Boss seems to be related to Trumpeter) would release an *early* MiG-3, in 1/72 scale. Whatever connection there is between HB and Trumpeter didn't prevent both companies from doing the P-40B/C in 1/72, so maybe there's hope that Trumpeter will release a 1/72 MiG-3 too.
