A set of micro-scale (1:200) Soviet fighter/interceptor aircraft.
About this creation
My latest set of micro-scale aircraft -- Soviet fighters/interceptors, including a MiG-21 "Fishbed", a MiG-23 "Flogger", a Mig-25 "Foxbat", a MiG-29 "Fulcrum, a MiG-31 "Foxhound", and an Su-27 "Flanker". I expect that most folks viewing this picture are already very familiar with the aircraft. After trying to create a camouflage scheme on the Mig-21 and Mig-23, I sort of threw in the towel. It's just too hard to do a reasonable job on camouflage at this scale. The faded green of the Mig-29 and faded blue of the Su-27 are supposed to represent the gray/green and blue/green camouflage schemes that these aircraft sometime sport.

Quoting Steffen Rau Great! I specially like the way the "tile with handle" is used (http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=2432)
Thanks. Using the clamp (or "tile with handle" as BL refers to it) was one of those "Eureka" moments for me. But it wouldn't have worked so well if I didn't also figure out that a skeleton leg (LDD part #93062) could be used to create the fuselage in front of it.

Quoting Claw Paradox What, no SU-47 Berkut?? ;) nice work!
Thanks. I definitely considered doing the Berkut, but decided to stick to strictly Cold War-era aircraft for this set. I might create one in the future.

Quoting clayton Marchetti These are just amazing! Everyone of them is easily identifiable. I really like the Flanker and the mig 23, but they are all excellent. You always pick the perfect parts to represent a particular aircrafts identity ,and that's what makes these perfect!
Thanks. The Flanker is still my personal favorite (see my most recent post for more Flanker goodness). I do often agonize over parts selection, but that is the only way to get decent results at this scale.

Quoting Stephan N an excellent collection
Quoting Elk Guard Fantastic work, the 27 and 29 are particularly brilliant!
Quoting Builder Allan Hehe.. Fun title :-D Nice micro planes, very detailed for their size. I like the shape of the SU 37 and the colors on the MIGs :-)
Quoting Kurt's MOCs Beautiful job! These are really nicely done. Great work.
Quoting Oran Cruzen Great work of Lego creationism!
Quoting Starscream Soundwave I don't have much knowledge regarding Soviet aircraft, but I do know that these look fantastic. Nice title too!
Quoting sam the first Beautiful...
Thanks, guys. I appreciate the support.

Quoting Jeremy McCreary Man, I hate it when that happens! (Shrinking the MiGs, that is.) But I love the way you differentiated these fighters so clearly with so few parts.
Thanks. Yes, achieving some differentiation among the fighters was definitely one of my goals. In some cases, the main difference was really just size (MiG-29 vs. Su-27, or MiG-25 vs. MiG-31), but that is sort of how it is in real life as well.

Quoting XY EZ All is perfect!! Have you tried a mig 17 ? Could be an idea... 8-) 5/5
The thought of doing some earlier aircraft (MiG-15, MiG-17, Su-7, etc.) did occur to me, but early Cold War aircraft are very difficult at this scale because they are usually very small. My MiG-21 model actually has a wingspan that is a little too large. The MiG-17 has a larger wingspan than the MiG-21 (31.5 ft vs. 23.5 ft.), but the swept wings would be really difficult to do. I'll keep it in the back of my head, though.
Quoting Alex Sonny The SU-27 is incredible! I see you got youeself deep into microscale. These are really awesome!
Thanks!
