The MiG-3 rebuilt by Aviarestoration of Novosibirsk for the company Rusavia was exposed to the exposition MAKS 2005 in Moscow during August 2005.
This wide walkaround was provided by Yuri Pasholok, that is the owner of the copyright on photos. They can't be reproduced without his permission.

This restoration is made in excellent way, and it is by far better of anything has been done in the past; however, note that it is not 100% original, and it differs from wartime MiG-3s for small details, some of which have been identified on the comments. Please take in mind this before utilizing photos as references for a model.

The painting scheme is typical of early prewar MiG-3s, but, for what I know, it was not used on late type MiG-3s as the restored one. Besides the demarcation lines between blue and green are not perfectly identical to prewar style.
