The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-3 was a Soviet fighter aircraft used during World War II. On 22 June1941 at the beginning of Operation Barbarossa, some 981 were in service with the VVS, the PVO and Naval Aviation. It had been designed for high-altitude combat but combat over the Eastern Frontwas generally at lower altitudes where it was inferior to the German Messerschmitt Bf 109 as well as most modern Soviet fighters. Even with the MiG-3's limitations, Aleksandr Pokryshkin, the third-leading Soviet, and Allied, ace of the war, with 53 official air victories(plus six shared), recorded a number of those victories while flying a MiG-3 at the beginning of the war. He later recalled:“It's designers rarely succeeded in matching both the fighter's flight characteristics with its firepower… the operational advantage of the MiG-3 seemed to be obscured by its certain defects. However, these advantages could undoubtedly be exploited by a pilot able to discover them”.This kit is full-composite and designed off the original plans CAD. Its very light weight, strong construction and the fact that all the rivets,panel lines and so forth are in the mold make this a fantastic kit for those who want to leave the beaten path.
