Item no: 73595 Price: €18.95
Eduard’s two-fret photo-etched brass and pre-painted metal package is designed to fit Trumpeter’s new 1/72 MiG-31 Foxhound, and offers a considerable upgrade for the cockpit and canopies. The K-36 ejection seats are treated to new pads, harnesses, firing handles, oxygen hose/communications connectors and leg guides, transforming their appearance. Similarly, most of the kit’s moulded detail on the instrument panels and side console is discarded in favour of Eduard’s metal replacements, and the cockpit sills benefit from new locking panels. Arguably the most challenging aspect will be the new canopy frames, periscope unit and latches, as they will have to be attached with PVA to prevent damage to the delicate transparencies.
