HBB81753 1/48 Mikoyan MiG-31 Foxhound
- Customer Reviews
The MiG-31 is the replacement for the MiG-25 from which it was developed. It entered service in 1981 and is expected to remain in service until 2030. It has a powerful radar and is armed with a 23mm cannon and up to 8 air to air missiles. It also features an exceptional top speed (like the MiG-25) of around Mach 2.8 or over 1800mph. It has the capability to intercept small targets, such as cruise missiles as well as conventional aircraft at long or short ranges. In short it is a highly effective interceptor aircraft.
This kit from Hobby Boss looks very well detailed and looks to have many parts. The kits comes with plenty of ordnance and decals for 2 aircraft plus a small fret of photo etch metal parts.
