Difficult build that built up beautifully! Very happy to see muddy boot prints on the root instead of the traditional scuffing; you put thought into weathering it.

I agree with Frederick. VERY nice job on a difficult kit, and the weathering is distinctive. The "mud" adds a lot to the wingroot.

Geoff,
8 year WIP. That has to be a Aeroscale World Record.

Your finished Mig 3 looks exceptional with a realistic overall weathering effect. As Fred and Brain already pointed out, going with the mud effect rather then the traditional scuffing, really adds quite a bit to the overall presentation.
