Fighting Eighty-Four Posted April 4, 2017 Share Posted April 4, 2017 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!
