  1. I built this one straight after doing a MiG-29S as part of a recent Mig-mania spree All the pros and cons of Trumpeter's Fulcrum kits are here. The pros: very good fit and exquisite surface detail. The cons: bad nose fit needs a lot of filling and sanding which will wipe out the detailing and require a delicate rescribe. It's annoying but not a deal breaker in my opinion. Trumpeter's narrow canopy issue is carried over to both the S and SMT kits despite having a chance to correct it since the upper fuselage is a completely different piece in each of its kits. Most glaring, however, is that only ONE Krypton missile is included despite the manual and box suggesting that two are in the kit. What was Trumpeter thinking?!? There are also only decals for one of them so something clearly got lost in the chain of command. This is really annoying as it forced me to use an asymmetric weapons load which I'm not sure the Russians do. Unrealistic? Probably. But at least I got to use this lovely monster missile. Decals were entirely from the kit, there's not that much variety anyway. Went down well with just one pass of Microsol after applying. Now, an issue with camo which hopefully will help any modellers having a go at the kit or the upcoming Zvezda version: the AKAN set is woefully inaccurate! I know, this is shocking, since AKAN is the gold standard for Russian colors. But I think they really messed up this one. There are two sets, one which depicts the older green splinter camo, and another which has the more recent grey splinter. The only difference in both sets is the presence of the classic Fulcrum grey/green vs the new dark grey. All other five colors are the same ones. The problem is that none of the other greys appear to match the real thing, they all have a beige-ish tint that is inappropriate. Which means the set is a complete waste of money since only the dark grey is useful (the other useful colors, the radome grey and the wheel green are in the basic Fulcrum set so if you have that, you're sorted). Since none of the greys matched the real thing, I used the following. For the light grey, I used Vallejo 36495. It looks the part although some SMT pics show it slightly darker. I guess you can't go wrong with any light neutral grey. For the medium grey I used the dark grey lightened up with the off white at about a 1:4 ratio. I was quite pleased with the mix. The dark camo is the dark grey which I do think is the only accurate color in the set. I am £17 or so poorer... but wiser. With knowledge of the camo colors, I want another go at the SMT so will probably do the Zvezda once it comes out next month. I especially like that it will come with a much greater variety of air-to-ground ordinance. Until then, enjoy the pics. Despite the issues, I am quite happy about how the kit came out!
