MiG-25 - part 3

The mighty Foxbat is now complete.  I kept the paintwork simple and having sprayed the whole thing shiny silver painted in the cockpit windows, nosecone and tailpipes.  Markings were selected from those supplied with the kit.

Being so shiny makes it look even bigger!

That's a nice model Tim, Foxbat is such a cool name too :)

It certainly sounds a lot more menacing than 'Fishbed'...

Now that is one silver fox!

As big pointy planes go, I suppose it is pretty.

That has turned out nice Tim. I noticed no hole for a flight stand- what will be keeping it up?

Cheers,

It'll probably be balanced atop a pint glass.
