Omega Models 32-003 1/32 MB bis Fighter

By Mike Norris

Here is my build of a Mosca-Bystritsky MB bis fighter, flown by the Imperial Russian Air Force from 1916. The full build is in my Work in Progress build thread.

The basic 1:32nd scale kit is resin and made by ‘Omega Models’ (Kit No: 32-003).

The list of changes/additions to the model are:


Detailed with Nickel-Silver valve push rods, copper wire ignition leads and replacement induction manifolds.

Modified or corrected:



The kit decals were replaced with corrected markings, printed from an Inkjet printer and on white decal paper.

As usual I've created a downloadable build log in Adobe PDF format, for those who might want to refer to it for reference or build details. It contains full step by step descriptions of the model build, its modifications/changes and is also supported with illustrations and photographs. If viewed in Adobe Reader, each build log has book marked chapters/headings for easier navigation through the log.

My model website has the gallery page, so to view any model, go to the gallery and select it. If it has a PDF build log, it will be available to download using the 'PDF' icon on that model photo page. For any photograph, just click the photo to enlarge or reduce the viewing size.
