AWESOME!  Yes, I read that as 1/32 mig31

 

Then my optician got my prescription right this time......this will be big, kind of glad I held off buying a 1/48 if this comes to fruition soon

According to Scalemates the MiG will be in 72nd.

Well I guess something got lost in translation- mods please delete if this is the case.....and there's me thinking I gotta scoop....

It would certainly make more sense in 72 than 32, but I'm prone to trust the manufacturer website before a 3rd party site. Not to say typos don't happen from manufacturers...

Wow, how cool would that be, and I do prefer the 31 over the 25.

 

They already have a Mig-31 in 1/72, so either this is just a rebox in 1/72 that includes that hypersonic missile or it really is a new 1/32 kit. 

 

Cheers,

MAN! I hope HOPE this is true!   And I hope HOPE that the same team that did their Flanker will do it if its in 32nd!!   I scoop one up in a HEARTBEAT.  And yes it will be huge, BUT..........

 

 

Trumpeter has a history of doing large Russian jets in 32nd scale, and most/some are quite well done.  Not only do they have a history of 32nd scale Russian jets, but if you talk about size, and are worried a 1/32nd Mig-31 is TOO big think about this:

 

 

SU-27 Flanker     = L is 72'/22 m [-2.something ft smaller than the Foxhound]
Mig-31                 = L is 74'/23 m [+2.something ft larger than the Flanker]

 

SU-27 Flanker     = W is 48'/15 m [+4 something ft larger than the Foxhound]
Mig-31        = W is 44'/13 m [-4.something ft smaller than the Flanker]

 

SU-27 Flanker     = H is 19'/6ish m [-0.something ft smaller than the Foxhound]
Mig-31        = H is 20'/6 m [+0.something ft larger than the Flanker]

 

 

Not a whole lot of difference between an SU-27/30 and a Mig-31 other than having a smaller wingspan by 0.125 in, and a longer fuselage by a mear 0.0625 in

 

Heres hoping that bad boy follows suite with their 1/32nd Mig-15, Mig-19,  Mig-21, Mig-23B, Mig-23K,  Su-25,  Su-25UB, Su-27, Su-30, Mig-29A, Mig-29UB!

 

Bring on the 32nd Foxhound!!!!

Actually to my knowledge currently Trumpeter does not make a Foxhound in 1/32nd. 

 

They do currently make a 72nd scale Foxhound, so guys Id say its more likely a 1/32nd Foxhound

I kind of thought that too, as it does make sense. But when I looked at Trumpeters current Mig-31 it is an MiG-31BM when that is what the site lists as coming out.
