After the MiG-29 (9.12) "Fulcrum-A" late version - http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=234925828&hl=fulcrum - , Yufei (Haneto) and Great Wall Hobby are working on a new variant of this fighter aircraft, the MiG-29 (9.13) "Fulcrum-C".

In the meantime Yufei has also announced the MiG-29 (9.12) early version...

Thank you all for your advice and encouragements, guys! (...)

For a Fulcrum mania, I think there's no more need for me to explain these parts? :coolio:/>

And the edge of the canopy is modified to be replica the real thing as real as we can.

Yes, I mean the little step forward.

Seperate intakes on the engine covers, and with holes of course!

The install holes are replaced on missiles so you do not need to adjust anymore.

(Sorry for the 1st edition, they were too hurry to rush for the Christmas sale.)

And last but not least, you'll see it before Spring comes. :whistle:/>

Enjoy! Cheers,

Hi Homebee

 

Eagerly waiting for this 9-13 also. Already got the 9-12 Late.

I just hope Yufei will find some time ( now that he is  a daddy :thumbsup:  ) to check these  PTB 1150  and pylons dimensions. For the PTB the cross section seems to be only 1 mm off , but for the length it's about 11 mm. The pylons look also some mm too short , but I may be wrong. My references are ZLINEK and 4+ Publication. 

 

I know it's pretty easy to correct these two little mishaps ( provided I am right ! ) but I am waiting for confirmation by Yufei.  Anyway I personnaly can live with that !

Yes I know also that it's pretty rare to see a MiG-29 A or even a C with these tanks , but for my dispair I can't live with aircrafts without drop tanks hanging under the wings ! :weep:

Since GWH provided us with them, and since this model is a gemn  why not correct them in accordance.( provided  they are a off ! )

 

Madcop :)

Let's have a look here:

Several MiG-29s from the VVS 16.VA regiments in Germany were equipped with those tanks for their flight going back home.

I haven't seen any reviews on this kit (either version) yet. Has it been delivered to customers yet? If so, what are your opinions?

I wonder if we're any closer to getting them into the UK at present? I'll email Creative since your post reminded me ;)

Has anyone else noticed that the camo scheme for the aircraft on the Mig-29 9-13 box top is not reflected in the kits painting guide. The decals for the aircraft are fine though.

I've been trying to dig some more information as I believe the camo layout on the box top is a newer pattern, with different colours. Have a look at this picture, it shows the different grey colours as well as part of the darker grey colour extending down onto the front part of the left engine air intake, which the box art shows as well.

Any help on this one would be appreciated, especially with a pic of how the pattern is laid out on the aircraft and approximate F.S. / Humbrol paint equivalents for the greys. I've started my 9-13 and would like to finish it as per the linked picture.

Cheers,

Devo
