Finally the model, that i started to make at the end of 2007 is ready to be shown in it’s complete full-armed and dangerous view. A lot was going on during last 7 years and sometimes I thought that I will never have enought time to finish that beast.
Despite the 90% of mesh was ready few years ago I have not had the courage to start texturing the model due to lack of experience in texture creating. But my recent advances in texturing weapons helped to develop methods that allow to create high-resolution maps for this aircraft in fairly limited amount of time.
Now I'm working on some of the first images of the aircraft. I think that they will be published after August 11. This will include several versions - Soviet/Russian and Kazakhstan AF MiG-31B with R-33, R-40TD & R-60 missiles and the newest BM modification, armed with R-37, R-77 & Ks-172 missiles.
Best regards, Alex Iartsev.
