MiG E-152M - new 1/72 scale kit from Modelsvit

Recommended Posts

Finally finished - the latest in Modelsvit's growing collection of one-off MiG prototypes..... this is the MiG E-152M.




Apart from a few issues getting the cockpit/intake sub-assembly to fit, the rest was just the normal 'limited run' type of kit from Ukrainian manufacturer Modelsvit.


Great surface detail, comprehensive decal sheet, etched brass parts, self-adhesive masks for the wheel hubs, dielectric panels on the wings and the canopy - but  with the usual large sprue gates with every part needing to be 'fettled' before assembly.


It looks highly accurate and was a pleasure to build.




Three wingtip options are included - with dummy (port) and test(Stbd) missiles. The canards can be left off - replaced by a fairing.




The centreline drop tank is optional - it was not carried during its few flights.




Canards and front-opening canopy - note the HUD.


This latest E-152M is the third 'BiG MiG' from Modelsvit - following their E-150 and E-152A.....




All these many prototypes led, eventually, to the successful MiG-25......




I hope that Modelsvit will re-issue this kit with markings for the record-breaking E-166...
