MIG3 Winter

Another warbird for John's Soviet fleet? The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-3 was a Soviet fighter and interceptor aircraft used during World War II. It was a development of the MiG-1 by the OKO of Zavod No. 1 to remedy problems found during the MiG-1's development and operations. Image left shows a MIG3 durng WWII on Winter assignments.

Here in 2018 we now have a MIG3 based at Cashmoor thanks to John Ireland.  He has spent some considerable time on this model from ESM managing to install a canister exhaust within the fuselage to keep the outline scale.  The exhaust exits near the tail onn the underside. Powered by 3W55 swinging a 23x8 wood prop.

The MIG 3 was maidened at Cashmoor on the 30th August 2018 and test flown by jon Tappin.  Flew well and as the new engine beds in more power will be on tap.
