Your model is wonderful! But I just noticed that you painted the two windscreen front "frames" light brown. According to what I found in Massimo's MiG-3 pages, they are not frames but joints of the plastic windscreen made of three glued pieces. On my model I "reproduced" them leaving them unpainted.

According to Massimo, they are inner frames, but looking at pictures showing the windscreen from inside and also damaged aircraft where the broken windscreen shows no frames, I still think they are clear glued joints.

No internal frames were there. This is the overlay of the three parts of the front visor.

Hi,
that page needs to be updated. They are glued joints between plastic parts.
I would check the spinner against good photos.  The curvature should not be continuous, the front half should be more conical.
Regards
Massimo
