Seems the reviewer never heard about the Zvezda rendering...Trumpeter is Trumpeter , nothing more that a very nice toy, as usual.

It is not only the "bump" that makes the difference ! They could have taken the chance to correct the mishaps that plagued their 9-12 model.

Yes, it LOOKS nice but Zvezda is nice and right !

Just my two cents !

Could you tell me more about this misstakes, please?

For one thing Trumpeter represented the auxiliary intakes opened but you can fill them up or put a pilot in the cockpit.

The thing that bothers me more is the bloated windscreen base. I've built the Trumpeter 9.12 (it's the best option to do a 9.12 currently) but I'm not going to buy the other boxings because of it.

I am applying finishing touches the trumpeter 9.12 and one thing I can vouch for is the fit is excellent .  Accuracy wise , I am not experienced enough but it does looks a mig-29 once finished .

There is something you should look out for - the missiles supplied in the 9.12 kit (and I suppose the other versions ) include 2 pieces each of R-73 and R-60.  The mig-29 cannot be configured to carry both type simultaneously  , so either you have equip the airplane with four R-73 or four R-60 .   I used the excellent ICM missile set and equipped mine with four R-73 .  


I also have the SMT version box , inexplicably , it came with a single Kh-31 missile . I think they forgot to pack the second sprue in my case .

At this point I wonder if Eduard will re-release L-39 Albatross in pixel camouflage.

The Fulcrums are my favourite Russian jets but I've never added one to the stash, if it has the digital camo decals this might be my reason to finally get one

And Zvezda their MiG-29, Su-27, Su-25, Mi-8, Mi-24. ;) :D

Again I would like to see that, but I doubt Zvezda would be putting Ukrainian markings in their kits. 
 

We can hope decal makers like Linden Hill etc come out with decals.

The latest update on the site is 18th April, so they are still in business at the moment.

And an order with them will help the Ukrainian economy.

Nonetheless the Trumpeter kit is good, only the open aux air doors are disturbing me.
