AMK will release a MiG-31!

Recommended Posts

Any rumours out there that an aftermarket company are doing some Pitot tubes and like details for the MiG 31? Those fittings on the tube of the nose radome pitot look so fine and delicate, would be nice to have them in photo-etch.

the AMK MiG-31 got released already.. what does it matter which way the topic goes now?

can't you just READ the topic title please.

there is still another AMK 1/48 MiG-31 kit that hasn't been release yet.

there could be useful info related to the AMK MiG-31 that can be posted.

like upcoming dedicated aftermarket stuff... tweaks that could be shared... info like the decal stencils "coincidence" shown above, that could be share...

but what you or anyone else wanted for next AMK release is unwanted here. there is plenty of other topic to do so...

i wouldn't be surprise to see something pops from "Master-model" from Poland... they are very active and cover most of 1/48 subjects that are produced...

Yeah, I'd be shocked if Master Model didn't release a pitot, and if they don't Dream Factory or Mini World almost certainly will. It'll probably take a couple of months, though.

We collaborate with everyone we can. Aftermarket kit manufacturers are given the kit very early on so they can do their magic.

I have to agree with Mingwin here though guys, this really is a MiG-31 thread. Technically it is a MiG-31B/BM thread as the new early version MiG-31B/BS will be out very very soon. Factory is just finishing the boxing up. Almost ready to release for sale to importers. They will be getting a heads up in the next week or so I expect.

Canopy seals/framing coming in January from Furball Aero-Design. Printed by Cartograf they will be printed to FS 31158 (except for the white center panel) unless someone has a better choice.

Cool!Although it should be lighter and more 'pinkish' than mentioned FS31158? Desert pink?

More like something between Pantone 5005U and 7523U

If i am being completely frank; FS 31158 is a terrible choice.

The way i see if there are three FS color candidates;

FS 31630:

FS 31638:

http://federalstandard595.com/?s=31638

FS 31669:

http://federalstandard595.com/?s=31669

I think first two are the best ones. As Gabor said it varies (not too much though, from what i have seen) depending on the mix. Here are two pictures to compare to;

Either way i have never ever seen it in FS 31158 like shade.

Could you give us a few reputable on-line shops where we could find this beauty please.

Hi all,

To set the record straight, Mr Bobek at HGW has our full permission to use the decals and AMK logo.

Permission was sought in the correct way and there are no trademark or copyright contraventions.

Thank you for the alert though.

Its the same pink "Germetika" on the inner side of the plexi + the tint of the plexi. You want to that too??? :D

The Germetika is applied by hand (smeared on to be precise) and as such it has completely uneven edges and surface.

Best regards

Gabor

Germetik not Germetika, Gabor, i'm know that surprize for non-russian, but inanimate objects have a sex (man's, female and even neutral gender)

Thanks Andrey,

Yes, you are right, I refer to it as Germetika becouse our Hungarian technicians called it this way. Just what I got used to.

Best regards

Gabor
