Among Brickmania’s April releases is this 1/35 model of the MiG-3, a Soviet WW2 fighter introduced in 1941. The machine was intended to serve as an upgrade to the previous MiG-1 and although built in large quantities, it proved difficult to fly and inadequate in its role as a high-altitude fighter, which resulted in the type being retired from service prior to the end of the conflict.

The new, limited edition Brickmania model reportedly consists of 338 genuine new-condition LEGO elements and includes a custom-printed Soviet pilot minifigure, a high-quality sticker sheet, retractable landing gear and a detailed cockpit.

The new, limited edition kit reportedly consists of 467 genuine new-condition LEGO & BrickArms elements and includes deployable airbrakes, retractable landing gear, opening canopy, towing equipment, printed elements and a high-quality sticker sheet.

Following the release of their new Gotha G.IV model last week, Brickmania is continuing their line of German WW1 fighters with this new Fokker D.VII custom LEGO kit.

Arguably the best aircraft produced during the WW1, the D.VII entered service in 1918 and proved itself to be such a formidable fighter that remaining examples had to be surrendered following the Armistice. Brickmania’s new 1/35 kit presents the machine in Jasta 18 colors and consists of 329 genuine new-condition LEGO and BrickArms elements, stickers and a custom-printed minifigure.
