Mig-31M cockpit color

Recommended Posts

Question for Russian aircraft experts:

 

What is the best match for a Mig-31M cockpit. I am about to start the Hobby Boss kit.

 

Thanks in advance.

All the pics I've seen show it in the turquoise color used by Mig in many of its fighters. Here's a pic of a Mig-31BM cockpit. I would think the M version no different.

There are a number of paint lines offering the color. More than likely you will find it in the line you normally use (unless it is out of production).

Thank you Mstor, but I believe the Mig-31M used a different color in the cockpit, I believe it is a gray color, but unfortunately, I haven't found any clear photos on the Web.

 

I'll keep looking.

The instructions for the AMK MiG-31BM/BSM kit call for turquoise blue for all cockpit surfaces. Now, I don't know if that is totally accurate, but it is what it is.

Correct, at least according to what Yefim Gordon's MiG-31 book is showing as images of the MiG-31M front cockpit (looks roughly like MM Dark Gull Gray to me).

Thank you madmanrick.

The kit I am building is the M, that never went into production, not the BM or BSM which I know use the turquoise blue.

Not sure about the early MiG-31M frames, but pretty sure the color on the later ones was indeed grey as the pictures above show. Also, Mstor's MiG-31BM cockpit picture is of the original MiG-31BM prototype, not the operational one. It was a beastly aircraft, still holding longest distance A-A kill, and one at massive speed at that...

Leave it to Mig to make one completely different. Probably did it on purpose mess with all us modelers minds. :OMG-OMG:
