Microaces NEW MiG-3 Kit Now Shipping

Hi all,

If you haven't been following the Microaces Mystery Kit thread over the past month or so then this is just to let you know the latest Microaces kit release is the Mikoyen-Gurevich MiG-3.

As with all the other kits in our range it is designed to use the Spektrum AR6400 family of receivers (AR6400, AR6400L, AR6410 & AR6410L). The kit includes a seperate aileron servo and the Deluxe Kit comes complete with brushless motor and ESC with connectors installed to plug & go.

Here's the big releave video and a few images of the finished kit. The full spec of the kit plus historical detail can be found on the Microaces website.

Beautifully detailed kit, nicely done! It's next on my list for sure. I'm sure we all appreciate a scale subject that's rarely done out there, thanks!

Sweet, Jon have you do any tests with Parkzone's 3-bladed prop on your AP05?

I R Irv I have not unfortunately. I bought some GWS 3 bladed props to try out but the diameter of the central hole is smaller than the 2 bladed and so our prop adapter wouldnt fit so that was a 'non starter'. The other issue is the Microaces scale foam spinners wont fit a 3 bladed prop. We would have to create new tooling to make suitable spinners and that is a little bit of an extravegence for us at the moment.

I'll leave that sort of testing to you guys!

Looks AMAZING.
Any chance of getting a White version though? I am just not to fond of the green variant

Isn't the "paint job" a layer that comes separately in the kit?

Hi Whitepants,

As you probably know many of th Soviet aircraft were white washed during winter as the camo paint stood out like a sore thumb flying over the white terrain.

I hope to be able to produce the winter version of the aircraft too but it takes longer than most people imagine to create the artwork - even when its already basically there - to then create new stickers.

Model Airplane News just out has put in a little piece about the MiG-3.

I know it's blowing the old trumpet again, but I always get a little bit of a kick when one of our kits makes it into a magazine. if you know what I mean!

Think I might start sending press releases to Playboy
