It took me forever, but I finally finished this after the various troubles I had with this. I was at first inclined to finish this in the movie paint job, but decided that was a little too standard and decided to have some fun with it. I raided my decal stash box and came up with this marking scheme to finish it. The idea is this: To me this IS the Firefox captured by Mitchell Gant in the movie "Firefox" but I chose to disregard what happened to the plane in the book "Firefox Down" as I just didn't like the idea of the plane winding up sunk in lake. This is my alternate idea of what became of the plane. In my alternate idea the plane survived and was flown to RAF base Mildenhal where it was taken apart and flown to the United States for reassembly and flight testing at Area 51 with the recovered MIG flight test group the Red Eagles. This paint job was what it flew with as a part of that group. While the group had other MIGs the MIG-31 was by far it's greatest coup, and the pilots got a bit brazen with the marking scheme. The star on the tail denotes plane being both a fallen star and a superstar aircraft that is #1 on the most wanted catch list. The stars and bars with the red surround denote an American catch but Russian Red Eagle Flight assignment. Then standard stencils were affixed as well for ease of operation.
Anyway, that's my idea with this, what do you think? Cool?
