Hi guys...

There is a page with an MiG-3 (1/32 of Trumpeter) developing construction in   www.modellersite.com/nov2006/Espanol/Mig3_Esp.asp 
You can traslate this using the english key inside...
Then please comment Grin...

Hi Rodrigo, Smiley
I've seen your model.
It's interesting under some points, because such weathering requires a lot of technique.
On the other hand, it don't fit the look of MiG-3 n.39 on wartime photos, nor the typical look of MiG-3s, unless you mean an abandoned one.
White was too visible on an unsnowed background, so, when spring arrives, survived winter planes were washed or repainted.
I have photos of LaGG-3s of early 1943 that can somewhat resemble this look.

Dear Massimo: Good point. In some articles that I have about MiG-3 the paint is presented like a casein based compound. (Case?n is the milk protein). Is this true??.

A question: Correct the Scuadron Signal vacum canopy the shape of the MiG-3 canopy??

Another thing: How I can obtain your MiG-3 book signed by you? Roll Eyes

All the best for you

Hi Rodrigo, Smiley
about casein... I don't really know. I see that the style of? painting of winter 1941 (nearly solid, prevalent on MiG-3s) is often different from that of 1942 (mainly on LaGG). I have found somewhere a photo of Lagg wreck that has lost all his white paint during the spring, and paint lies on the ground... but it's a wreck.
About the book, I would answer by mail.

Massimo
