nice start, or actually nice build!

please try to stay away from the kit's R-60s... the R-73s are fine!

If you want R-60s, try to find ones from Eduard MiG-21 kits, or frotm their resin line!

just my opinion though!

I have got this R-60, whether they will be good ?

YES!

they are perfect!

if you compare the to the shorter ones from the Academy kit, you notice the big difference in shape and the mcuh too large front fins compared to the Eduard example!

exdraken is right. Academy's R-60 (or whatever they are) are worthless. Keep away from them! :fight:

Eduard's R-60 are fine. Just remember that Academy's APU-60 and APU-73 are the same parts, So Eduard's rockets can look "undersized" with them

Keep on good work! You have chosen one of the most colourful paintings that are used in Polish Air Force at the moment :D

Thanks ! I know, but Polish MiG-29 with Kościuszko emblem at the fuselage look so nice.

just use the eduard pylons (APU-60) part E29 and add the Academy pylons' upper part (some cutting and sanding necessary )

alternatively there is a pylon set from Karaya (ex FM) that inlcudes (if memory serves me right) APU-60 pylons for the R-60

or... use 4 R-73s!

Eduard offers a very nice R-73 set with correct and detailed pylons!

I'm looking at the pylons from eduard, and i think that will be hard to get a nice pylon which by completed and fit to a model. Probably i'm go to buy resin R-73 They look so good, but i'm still thinking about Eduard R-60+academy pylons.

Today i painted the bottom of MiG-29 with C308. It looks good for me, in two place (you can see it on photos) paint go under masking tape and soil White color, fortunatley it's easy to repair it.

This is looking great. Do you know if there's a decal set for this scheme in 1:72?

Hello, recently I finish (finally ! :D) the camofluge. I know there's are some mistakes but it looks good for me. The model is after a gloss coat.

Today i was going to use a Decals from White Eagle. They are so horrible. They crumbled ;( (i think it isn'y my fault). Now i'm going to buy better decals from caracal ! I think i will get them at Tuesday or Wensday.

I hope you enjoy.
