     I bought this from EBay in 2005 and was one of the early additions to my collection of aircraft of the VVS in the Great Patriotic War. The MiG-3 is undoubtedly one of the prettiest aircraft produced at the time. Just gorgeous. If it performed like it looked it would have been a legend. Unfortunately it was horrible to fly and was discarded in favour of better designs by Lavochkin and Yakovlev. Some of the many accessories you can get to go with this kit include:

 

  • Moskit Exhaust Pipes

  • Aeromaster Decals AMD48313 and AMD 48314 MiG-3 "Early Warriors" Parts 1 and 2

Aftermarket Extras

Cutting Edge Super Detailed Cockpit set Eduard Photoetch set Fusion Propeller and Spinner correct set MiG-3 Moskit Metal Exhaust set
This is the Cutting Edge Super Detailed Cockpit set. It is packed with parts and judging by their previous work, it is excellent. This is the Eduard Photoetch set. The Fusion Propeller and Spinner correct set. I had quite a problem getting this off of the EBay seller who was based in Canada. Poor comms, poor instructions. One of two MiG-3 Moskit Metal Exhaust sets. I will use the other on the Trumpeter kit.
Squadron vac formed canopies True Detail Resin Weighted wheels Cooper Details CD 4835 WWII Russian Fighter Main wheels  
The Squadron vac formed canopies. You get two for the money. The True Detail Resin Weighted wheels reserved for the MiG-3 Project although the same set appears universal across Lavochkin and Yakovlev Fighters.... Cooper Details CD 4835 WWII Russian Fighter Main wheels for ICM, Classic Airframes, Hobbycraft, MiG-3, Yak-7, Yak-9, LaGG-3, La-5 & La-7.
