Mig 3 report or "News from the Eastern front":
I am still not done with the earlier version which I had previously shown ( pics. # 1 & 2).
Many parts have been rebuilt ( air intakes, louvers, upper front panels, etc), many more have been added.I still plan on finishing it...
before the end of the year.
I have started working on a later Mig 3 version ( pics. # 3 through 7).
There are few but significant differences: wing
slats were added, the engine area was "re-organised" ( simpler too, such as a one-piece
"hood" for the engine, with lever locks), etc.
I guess you can "pick" most of them.
I will leave the back wheel out on this version,
as shown here, as it was often a quick fix for a
disfunctional rear landing gear on this aircraft.
And hopefully, the next time I post anything about Mig 3's, my models will be completed.
Ps:images rendered with BMRT/Rhinoman,un-textured,
and all information concerning the Mig 3 thank's
to Massimo Tessitori's wonderfull research work
on the subject.

You've really wrung out the volumetrics of this design group. Each detail of a scoop alone shows mastery of boundary layer. Now the internal bracing picks up another finesse of the match of electronic and paper in representing aluminum. Rhino and the rendering form comes out well in your hands.

You have perfected one of the finest models of an airplane I have ever seen!
The time you have spent on detail and blending and fairing all the lines, is a
Testimonial to your eye for form and beauty. I admire your ability to stick to the
Idea of getting it right even if you have to re-build. You have set a standard of lofty
Dimension to aspire to. The path to perfection is only archived by the few who have
The fortitude to work hard at there craft, you have the gift. G
