MiG-25 Foxbat

I can quit my bellyaching and woe is me posts now! The Mig-25 is complete, as well as its build mates. This post should have been written a week ago but due to circumstance, here I am. It’s finished and that is what counts.
Hasegawa did a fair job of the Foxbat. For being such a large jet, I was left a little disappointed in the lack of detail. There is definite room for improvement. I opted to take a straight from the box approach and it is what it is. I am not overly enthused about the results, but it was my hand that created them. I wish I would have put a little more effort in adding more detail. I guess it’s a reminder for the next builds.
So construction was okay. There were a few minor snags along the way but nothing major. It actually goes together decently. There are few decals to this kit which made applying them a breeze.
When it comes time to build another Foxbat, I will look for more options. A detail set would be a great addition. I am unsure if they make one but maybe by the time I am ready they will. After building this airplane, I have been looking at various Foxhound kits. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  1. I see what you mean about the lack of detail. Russians make everything so sturdy, I’d expect to see more panel lines and rivets. You made the most from it though. It still looks like that menacing cold war foe that I remember. Great work!

    • Thank you! I am still bummed about the detail. I think I am going to do a Foxhound and really get detailed with it. Maybe that will redeem myself. It’s a shame too. There is a lot of model to the 25 that could have been addressed.
