  5. I noticed last week my LHS has them in stock, but it seems I've missed the launch of this (apparently) new mold line of recon Foxbats altogether. Looks like they have the RB version covered too. It appears I've been following the developments of certain Soviet 1/48 kits more closely - even though that's not my scale. I haven't found any WIPs yet. Not much talk here on ARC either. At least my search found nothing. There are several WIPs of the earlier PDs from ICM elsewhere. Once again I was surprised to learn these new reconnaissance kits have nothing to do with the earlier fighter kits that were derived from the Condor kit (which I have and is very basic). What the hell I've been doing lately?! Anyone have the 1/72 RBT kit?
  6. Finally finished this beast. Converted from Condor's MiG-25P. This is the MiG-25RBF Red 57 "Ivan Lezjov", formerly Red 20 "Rostislav Yashuk". It's one of the more interested schemes from Begemot's MiG-25 decal set, due to the rough overspraying of the old markings, dark green and light green over sand color scheme (usually RBFs and BMs appear to have brown and green over light green camo), and the replacement flaps from another, overall grey Foxbat. Colors are from AKAN's USSR VVS tactical colors 1978-89 set. Fun conversion and build overall.
  7. A new tool 1/48th MiG-25RBT "Foxbat-B" by ICM announced for Q3 2016 - ref.48901 The RBs, the best looking variants! Good choice. Sources: https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/ICM48901 http://scalemodels.ru/news/9728-katalog-ICM-2016-god.html V.P.
  8. Hi everyone! Back once again to share my latest creation, the ICM MiG-25RBT. This kit is really quite nice, the moldings and details are very crisp. The fitment is quite good unless... well you do what I did and not spend enough time assembling the bulkhead support and intake section. This caused a chain reaction of fit issues in the rear fueslage. I am 99% sure that these issues I encountered were my fault. So if you build this kit, please take your time in that part of the construction process. I used the Cold War Studios corrected nose section, which is quite nice. The masks and IP acetate were also very helpful. Also used the Master Pitot set (which is really awesome!) and Neomega KM-1 seat. Decals for the Iraqi Air Force were OOB. My goal was to make this beast very worn and tired looking. So I weathered it quite heavily, so much so I was concerned I had overdone it. But the more I look at the pics the less concerned I am that I did. So I am happy with the finish. Kit: 1/48 ICM MiG-25RBT Foxbat-B Decals: OOB Aftermarket: Cold War Studios nose section correction, Master Pitot and AOA, and Neomega KM-1 Seat Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), Tamiya Liquid White Primer (for marble coat), MrPaint Traffic Gray (For MiG-31 and MiG-25), and Russian Wheel Green, Gunze Aqueous FS 36118 Gunship Gray, Tamiya Rubber Black, Clear Red, Clear Blue, and Smoke, and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Airframe Aluminum, Aluminum, Gold Titanium, and Burnt Iron. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. Mig Ammo Deep Gray and Deep Brown panel wash. Now on to the pics, I hope you like!
  9. Hi guys After about 4 years no finishing a kit, finally found something attractive enough for me to start with. Yes it's the new ICM 1/48 MiG-25RBT, my favourite MiG-25 variant rather than the interceptor type. And what's more awesome is that ICM even chose my most favourite RBT scheme, the very famous and honored 47th GRAP "Red 46" which is very famous for her nice performance during Chechen–Russian conflict in 2001. Simply cannot resist the "Hero of Soviet" mark and the colourful communist badges! As being said for the error ICM made unfortnately in the kit, is that the nose cone is actually an early RB but not the RBT, I started with the nose correction. Please be noticed that not ONLY the bulge you need to add, but also you need to flat the right side light panel to smooth, then add some panel lines with rivets. Pictures could tell more easily: After several rounds of reshape/sanding, scribe the panel lines then spray the surfacer for check. To be honest I'm still not satisfied enough about the result since the bulge seems too narrow. But since it's underneath, I chose to live with it somehow.
