Here's a possibly helpful article from Britmodeller showing in good detail how to convert the HB MiG-3 to a MiG-1. I'm thinking about trying it myself, although my attempt to make an early MiG-3 from several years ago is still not complete!

Hi John,
it looks a good work, although the HB with its solid fuselage isn't the ideal for surgery.
Now I should work on a page on MiG-1s.
I considered to convert my kit in 1/48, but I am becoming lazy and I think I'll have a bit hard time to make a correct early MiG-3 with that kit, so any additional work wouldn't be so welcome.
