Yes, my scratchbuilding skills are supreme.

But this is What-If. That means it's not a MiG 1-44, it's a MiG-37!  :P

If built, it would have been MiG-33.

It would also have a nose radar, modified intakes, new canopy, and revised wing shape.  Plus it would have been generally "cleaned up" for RCS reasons.

This is to be built as a prototype so I know how the kit builds up.  When this one's done, I'll start on the other one as a MiG-33.  I'm not sure about redoing the canopy, but I do intend to redo the wings and clean up the shape a little.  I'm also working on giving the intakes a different profile.

And I ran out of Jelly Babies.

Looking good Tom.

Guys, in the latest "Air International", they call the 1.44 a MiG 37...

:unsure:

Sure thing. I mentioned the canopy because, as might be obvious, the 1.44 demonstrator used a standard MiG-29 canopy. Its like the EAP; a hack machine put together to prove a basic layout. Imagine trying to mod an EAP kit into a production Typhoon- or the YF-22 into the production FA-22 - thats the scale of the task, coupled with the fact that the actual finished design has never been revealed ;)
