MiG-31 Firefox (~1:24 Large Scale)
Visit exemplarinc.ca for more LEGO creations. Special thanks to Marty Fields for his inspiration for this build! Model dimensions (approx.): 32 L x 23 W x 9 H [NOTE: the cockpit canopy, canards, front & rear landing gear, airbrakes, fuel dual-intake hatch, flaps, and dual missile baydoors (housing 2 missiles each), of this model are fully retractable.]
About this creation
An authentic-to-scale replica of the "MYTHICAL" MiG-31 (NATO codename "Firefox") aircraft from the 1982 film called "Firefox" directed by and starring Clint Eastwood.

Technical Specifications:
Designation: MiG-31
NATO Codename: Firefox
Nation of Origin: USSR
Manufacturer: Mikoyan-Gurevich
Type: Advanced Interceptor
Power-plant: 2 Tumansky RJ-15BD-600 high-bypass afterburning turbojets producing
50,000 lbs. of thrust each; 6 Soyuz/Komarov solid rocket boosters producing an
additional 15,900 lbs. of thrust combined
Max Speed: 3,568 mph (Mach 5+)
Max Ceiling: 120,500'
Range: 3,000 nautical miles
Crew: 1
Armament: 4 AA-11 Acrid air-to-air guided missiles; twin 23mm
cannons
Defense: 4 rearward pods armed with anti-missile chaff/flare dispensers; Electronic
countermeasures (ECM) to jam enemy radar
Airframe: angular titanium / stainless steel / nickel alloy; "Cranked Arrow" wing
platform; Radar Absorbent Material (RAM)

Model dimensions (approx.): 32 L x 23 W x 9 H [NOTE: the cockpit canopy, pilot's entry-assist gear, canards, front & rear landing gear, airbrakes, fuel dual-intake hatch, flaps, and dual baydoors, of this model are fully maneuverable.]

This highly advanced Soviet fighter aircraft is revolutionary in terms of its top speed (mach 6), stealth (it is invisible to radar) and flight-handling capabilities (its "Cranked Arrow" wing design improves aerodynamics and lift, and its retractable airbrakes can abruptly slow down the aircraft). The pilot controls the plane's weapons and defensive systems by mere "thought" (a special computer system in the pilot's helmet can sense the pilot's thoughts and deploy weapons or defenses instantaneously, albeit the pilot must "think in Russian" because the system does not recognize other languages). The only weakness of this plane is that enemy infra-red missiles can easily track the plane's heat signature given off by the enormous thrust of its engines, albeit the plane has been known to outrun even the fastest missiles!

The photos depict the following:
> View of the cockpit, pilot, and pilot's entry-assist gear (in retracted position).
> The canards (in classic perpendicular position or swivelled backwards for better
aerodynamics).
> The front & rear landing gear (in retracted position), air brakes, and fuel dual-
intake hatch.
> The airplane appears to be flying (suspended by clear lego bricks) over the Arctic
ice.
> Classic rear-ward view of "Cranked Arrow" wing design.

Quoting Marty Fields Love the 'dynamic' stand! What happened to the small-scale 'Fox?
Yea I finally took your advice and went for the artic ice stand... works much better (lovely contrast). New pics too. The smaller scale fox is still around, I just decided that the large scale version is so nice, it makes the small scale one look rather shabby LOL.

Wow! Very impressive. I don't know how I missed this when it was first posted. It's one of the best uses of all black bricks that I've ever seen. The overall shaping is great, and I really love the engine inlets and nozzles. Very faithful to the original movie version.

Quoting f-22 raptor Well done! however, there's something about the angles on this aircraft I don't like. It just doesn't look horribly streamlined unfortunately. I give 8/10 because of this.
Trust me, the angles are accurate and the pics don't do her justice :)

Another great MOC! I think that for the Experimental Aircraft competition, you will be awarded (from me), 9/10 points. This is an excellent large MOC. And it is based off of a (relatively) fictional aircraft. Overall, a great score!

Quoting Marty Fields She looks great. I now wish I had built mine to this scale!
Thanks Marty - much appreciated! Please have Kurt Beswick contact me.
