  1. Onwards 2022, Great Wall Hobby (GWH) is to release a new tool 1/72nd Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-29 "Fulcrum" family. Source: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/319406-great-wall-hobby-gwh-l4830-148-su-30sm-“flanker-h”-multi-role-fighter/&do=findComment&comment=3063658 V.P.
  2. Hi all, I'm just mulling over the idea of a Fulcrum build at some point in the far off future. My eyes are focussed on a Peruvian machine - inspired by Pete's UB build - and wondered about the upcoming new release kits. It would be a shift for me in technologies as I tend to stick with what I grew up with - 50s and 50s jets - but I've always liked the MiG-29 and so having one in my collection would be appropriate. Why Peruvian? Because I like to be different! So, my question, is about the variants used. They are quoted as MiG-29S 9.12, upgraded to SE and then to SMP. What are the obvious differences from a modelling perspective, please? I'm certain there is someone out there who knows! Thanks a lot. Martin

  5. So with the Tucano done I need another project. This one landed on my lap from a mate, he bought it purely for the donation to Ukrainian causes and asked me to build it. I couldn't refuse. So I won't go into the contents of the box as these are all we documented on this site, its a nice kit with decent detail, a bit of flash but nothing to serious. Going to model this one in flight with one of the Coastal Kits Blur bases but some mods need to be done on the kit as its depicted as on the ground only. A bit of a parts cleaning session so far. Some fettling of parts is required but considering ICM have produced and distributed this kit is quite amazing in its own right. Was thinking of adding a couple of AGM-88 HARMs as at the moment there is a lot of controversy on the integration of the system to ex Soviet airframes, I think it might add a bit of interest ? Just a bit of AM Decals will be from the kit but I do reserve the right to add a tad more AM to the build Enjoy

  9. Hi All, Well after a lengthy battle, I've finally managed to drag this MIG-29 kicking and screaming into a somewhat finished state. The initial build was.....testing. Everything seamed to go wrong with this one so I decided I might as well make this model look like it has been though the wars too. I tackled this model as a "if it doesn't work, who cares" model so I could experiment. This is the first time I have used oil paints to weather a model. I found it to be a really rewarding process that I can't wait to try again. Obviously it is a little rough round the edges for a first try but it just looks so much more alive than the other clean models next to it on the shelf. I also tried stone chipping via dry brushing silver and enamel washing for the first time. I think for a weathering mule, it's come up pretty nice. Who would have though a model that almost went in the bin would help me learn so much! Thanks BR60066
  10. Greetings to all. This is a Mig that i finished two years ago. Although i feel little sad about it because i've lost all my project files due to a major damage in my pc, finally i tried and saved four pictures but unfortunately i can't have photos any more because the model has been sold.. As ordered this model should include all the possible aftermarket details as you see below. 1. Metallic pitot tube. 2. Nose correction. 3. Aires cocpit. 4. Aires photorealistic instruments. 5. Resin seat. 6. New chaff-flares dispencers. 7. Aires nozzles. 8. Aires airbrakes. 9. Aires set of wheels and landing gear with all the hydrolic cables etc. 10. Complete set of weapons from Big-Sin and Brassin with complete set of photorealistic decals from Eduard store. I wish i had the model. The complete detais were remarkable i hope you like it.
  11. Hi all, Here I would like to start a new topic for Mig-29SMT "917" which will most probably take her place in my "Never ending projects" list (aka "Hall of Shame"). Several years ago I bought dozens of Condor kits with various versions of Mig-21, Mig-25, Mig-29 and Mig-31 aircrafts. Last week when I was updating my kit inventory I have seen this Mig-29SMT 9.17 kit. Actually the kit is neither the production 9.17 nor the prototype "917". Therefore I decided to modify the kit slightly and use my own decals to finish the model (if you followed any of my other builds in this forum, you will quickly understand why I selected this finish. Simply it is in shades of blue...) Here is the Condor kit I will use in this build: In overall the kit provides sufficient payload. The fuselage panels are raised whereas wing and tail panels are engraved. The clear parts are very foggy and there are significant mark pins in the middle of canopy. I hope with a bit sanding and polishing I can improve this. Serkan
  12. Hello, Introducing my Mig-29 9-12s in 1/72nd scale. Story started a few years ago when I built my first Mig-29 in 1/72nd scale. At the time best choice was between the Italeri and Airfix models. I thought the Italeri kit was a better starting point and proceeded with my project. I actually was not very satisfied with that first try for 2 main reasons : I missed to correct the angled position of the main landing gears (Italeri gives them vertical…) I left the upper auxilliary intake doors open – they normally are closed when aircraft are parked and idle. I decided to correct these flaws and later started a second Fulcrum, also from an Italeri kit. I also corrected some other aspects of the aircraft addind resin accessories in the process (nose cone, cockpit and seat, wheels and exhaust nozzles). Aircraft was built as a Malaysian Mig-29N. Resin IFR probe and fairing were difficult to cement in position so I decided to build my Mig-29N without the IFR equipment (I found information proving that Mig-29N have occasionnaly flown without them). Then better Fulcrums were released both by Trumpeter then Zvezda. I had decided for either an East German, Czeck or Polish 5 colour camo which left me with the Trumpeter Mig-29 9-12 (Until now Zvezda reselased only the 9-13 and 9-19 version from their new moulds). Here are both models Italeri Mig-29N Trumpeter Mig-29A Cheers Eric B.
  13. Hey guys, for my current project of three MiG-29 in 1/72 I wanna do the SMT in blue-grey two-tone camouflage of Algerian AF. I have Begemot's decal sheet, but there are no codes or numbers for colours, just named. Anyone knows more about ? Is that blue same as Su-24 and MiG-21UM, for that I found Humbrol 65 in the Internet ? MiG-29SMT and Su-30MKA should be same colours. Any ideas ?
  14. This'll be my first build report so be gentle with me Firstly a bit of background:I got back into modelling like many others I suspect, last year during lockdown here in Germany. Luckily we didn't have it as bad as some and a few shops were still open. I built a couple of WW2 trucks converted to civvy use based on what I see every day on the roads in Myanmar every winter. I also did the very good Revell 1:24 Land Rover which was loosely based on our old Landy. Anyway I got back into aircraft with the Trumpeter 1:48 Wyvern, mainly due to the fact it was based on one serving on HMS Eagle at the same time as my father was serving on it in the mid fifties. I may get round to posting some pics in the 'Ready For Inspection' section: I made a lot of mistakes but it didn't turn out too badly in the end... I quite like building something a bit out of the ordinary(see above!) and thought about trying a MiG in Myanmar Air Force colours as I've seen them flying regularly and have snapped them on occasions too. I discovered that Caracal did a set of decals surprisingly, so that decided things. The choice was between the Trumpeter or the GWH version. Finding the Academy one for 20€ on Ebay whilst the GWH one was around 60€ plus postage twisted my arm towards the cheap option Big mistake as I was to discover... Just tried uploading pics to Flickr and linking them using the 'Insert image from URL' button but it doesn't work
  15. MiG-29s are backbone multirole fighter aircraft of Myanmar Air Force. Great Wall Hobby is making very nicely detailed MiG-29s so I gave a try. It is built and painted in Myanmar Air Force Camo. The Air Force markings and numbers are from Caracal Decals printed by Cartograf. I left one engine cover removed and one engine displayed on a stand. This model will be at Malaysia Miniatures and Hobby Show 2018 very soon.

    Two of my favourite aircraft are the MiG-29 and Su-27. I've been smitten with the MiG-29 ever since I saw it for the first time at Farnborough in 1988, and have fond memories (and not enough photos) of Fulcrums and Flankers at Farnborough and Fairford in the 90s. So I can't explain why I've never built a model of either of them. Fast forward 30-odd years and a Zvezda Su-33 came into my possession (thanks again @vppelt68). That prompted me to think about all the Flankers and Fulcrums I want to build and, having gone a bit mad in lockdown, I built up a stash of them in 1/72 pretty quickly. So time to get building. I'm starting with two MiG-29s, and will get onto a couple of Flankers next. These are the Zvezda and Revell 1/72 MiG-29S (9.13) Flanker C - actually the same kit although I've found Revell has made at least one change to it. Box shots: These are going to be fairly quick builds with no aftermarket apart from decals. I have a couple of Linden Hill sheets and a Begemot sheet so lots of options to choose from. One of them will be in Uzbekistan colours, not made a decision on the other but I'm leaning towards a Soviet aircraft from the late 80s. I've made a start. The Zvezda instructions have you assemble the main airframe components first, then move onto the cockpit. The unconventional build order works in this case as the cockpit tub is moulded into the upper fuselage. So I've got the fuselage and wings assembled pretty quickly, I've also got started on painting some cockpit bits but not photographed them yet. Here's how they're looking tonight: thanks for looking Julian
  17. I have Just completed My last Aircraft Honoring the Kosciuszko Squadron Flyers. This was the 1/48 Eduard/Academy Mig-29 UB in Polish Markings I need to thank Polish AF US Liaison Budniak Karol for all his support in correct colors of Mig-29. The decals are from ModelMaker ,a Polish decal company and they were fantastic. Below are two Aircraft with 100 years of separation tied in by the pilot, American Major Cedric Fauntleroy. The Albatross is the markings of Major Fauntleroy in 1920 and the 2020 Mig-29 has the pilots image on the inside of the the tails. Both aircraft sport the Kosciuszko Squadron Emblem designed by an American flier Elliot Chess during the Polish/Bolshevik conflict in 1920. Major Fauntleroy was the Kosciuszko Squadron commander during the conflict. I was trying complete the Mig-29 in 2020 but I did not receive the decals until December. I added the Eduard F.O.D covers just to add a Little color.The kit was loaded with Photo-etched parts,Resin seats and I added Resin Exhaust set. Notice the two different photos in the tail area, one in flying gear and one formal uniform. Thanks for Looking Comments are always welcome Regards Bill
  18. The ICM kit of a Mig-29 from the Swifts aerobatic team straight from the box. The kit decals only provide straight lines but the scheme needs many curves and the decals tend to break easily if coaxed to bend, so I masked all of the swift and only used the silver stripes. Steve
  19. Hello Everyone. . . A Mig-29SMT from trumpeter in 1/72 scale. I had built this model a while back. Now I decided to put this on a base, thus the Snow Diorama. This was my first time doing a diorama, its a small one where I just had to build a Base and merely modifying the MIG I built. The modifications are : 1. Missile covers done by Paper. For the R27s and the RVVs, the paper was rolled into a cone and superglued to the missile. Thereafter it was sanded to the desired shape. For the R73s a small square was cut and just pushed on the Nose of the missile giving the shape of a cover. This looked descent enough to pass by in this scale. These were painted red finally. 2. The Engine intake cover, Upper intake cover and the engine exhaust covers are all done by this plastic sheet. I used a ball pen to get the required embossed effect on these covers. For the upper intakes the walk area was marked by using tamiya masking tape. 3. The pitot cover was done using paper again and the string was a sewing thread. 4. Wheel chocks were taken from the Zvezda Kit. All the weapons, chocks, covers are detachable and are just press fit to the aircraft. For the snow I used Cotton and Baking Soda. I hope You guys Like it. Do lemme know for all your suggestions and opinions so I improve in the Future. For the video, the initial bit is the making of the base. You can JUMP to 05:30 for the Aircraft assembly. Enjoy and Cheers . . . .
  20. For my next build I have gone modern day and will build the Great Wall Hobby 1/48 MiG-29 Fulcrum C 9-13. I don't think this kit needs too much introduction as it has been widely reviewed and many great builds have been completed. Hopefully I can do it some justice! I intend to build a modern Fulcrum based on the Linden Hill Decal sheet 'Pavlov's MiG's', these aircraft are depicted as they appeared in 2015 and sport typical MiG-29 grey/green camouflage and markings for contemporary MiG 29's. I addition these aircraft sport quite interesting individual markings after they were blessed on there arrival to Erebuni AB in Armenia, where the aircraft have been operating in the QRA role. I will add the Eduard Big Ed photo etch set. Paint will be from the Akah lacquer acrylics, AK interactive Xtreme metal and Vallejo for anything else. A couple of shots of the kit unboxed: the quality of the presentation and packaging is second to none. The slide moulded missiles are exquisite. The engine detail is also impressive, some mad part of me wants to depict the aircraft with an engine dropped out for servicing/replacement. Finally a comparison with the Fulcrum's cousin the Su-33 (Kinetic kit), this really shows how much bigger the Flanker series is compared to the MiG-29! Thanks for looking!

  22. 1:72 Trumpeter MiG-29 SMT kit as visually its exactly the same, other than the ELT-568 Advanced Jamming pod on the starboard vertical stabilizer. Its a beautiful kit with loads of details and fantastic fit. I hardly used putty and assembly was a breeze . I scratch built the Jamming pod & FOD covers using polystyrene sheet. Paints were MR.Hobby, I had to mix and match a bit to get the IAF grey, decals from Bright Spark for roundels and fin flash, the black serial numbers were printed on a laser printer.

  24. Fun build, took almost a year to complete on and off due to uni. The HUD was lost during construction and despite my best efforts, couldn’t scratch build one to fit. Anyways, hope you guys like it. http://MIG-29UPG by Pranay Kumar, on Flickr http://MIG-29UPG by Pranay Kumar, on Flickr http://MIG-29UPG by Pranay Kumar, on Flickr http://MIG-29UPG by Pranay Kumar, on Flickr http://MIG-29UPG by Pranay Kumar, on Flickr http://MIG-29UPG by Pranay Kumar, on Flickr
  25. Evening all, My latest completion hot off the bench, Trumpeter's lovely little MiG-29. A mostly trouble free build, the only real effort required was around the intakes and nose. Finished as a Czech example using Hataka Orange Line lacquers, my first foray away from enamels, I won't be looking back! They were infinitely better to use compared to my usual Xtracolor. The decals have silvered in places which is really annoying and takes the shine off the finished model, but it looks OK from a few feet... 1/72 Trumpeter MiG-29A Fulcrum by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr 1/72 Trumpeter MiG-29A Fulcrum by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr 1/72 Trumpeter MiG-29A Fulcrum by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Thanks for looking, comments welcomed Shaun
