Mig-31 foxground
« on: November 24, 2018, 01:04:26 am »


Inspired by the photo above, I also start in this assembly at 1:72, I am looking for a good soul who would have in his box rabiot empenage of the same size as that of the photo above at 1:48 or 1/72. Thank you in advance.

Since the fixed inner parts of a swing-wing are called 'gloves', why not give it the ASCC reporting name 'Foxglove'?

Looks like a Sovietised Tornado with only one fin, but VERY good.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Very much so.

Or give it a larger fin and you have a Tornado Mk 10 ?

That's looking nice! But I agree: the fin looks somewhat small, lacking depth, as if the rudder was missing?

Looks great with the VG wings. Agree about the tail fin looking a touch small maybe but it looks nice

Great work!   

Agreed! 

Needs a F-111 tail fin...

When I used a Mig 31 fuselage as a base for my Avro Super Arrow, I calculated the fin area of the two Mig 31 fins, then increased the Arrow fin to the same area
