Zvezda MiG-31 "Foxhound"

The kit was finished and the nose undercarriage is quite fragile. The assembly of the main gear needs some care with the different parts.

The retractable pod  below the nose is the infrared search and tracking pod, whereas next to the right gear a 23 mm gun is fitted.   


The tail pipes require some work and "blanking" off; simply use some thin rolled up paper into the pipes up to the engine 


Cockpit internal painting was not clear, so I used a combination of grey and the common Soviet interior green on the canopy inside surfaces.

The stores comprise a couple of AA-9 Amos missiles below the fuselage and AA-6 Acrid below the wing. Also two long range fuel tanks are added. All parts are supplied in this kit.

The painting of details and the various panels was done looking at various pictures. 

Also added were some static dischargers from stretched sprue.

Decals were used as supplied and went on nicely.
