1/72 Italeri MiG-29 9-12, Myanmar Air Force

Recommended Posts

Well, here's #2 of my single type solo group build. This is the Italeri kit, which is up until recently the best MiG-29 in 1/72. Caracal's international MiG-29 sheet is awesome as usual, and I could not resist this beautiful blue scheme. I had meant to this to be an out-of-the-box build, but I found a picture of the Myanmar bird armed with S-8 rockets and I couldn't resist. grafted a pair of S-8 pods and pylon from the Hasegawa J-15 kit, and along the way I lost the clear sprue so I had to scratchbuild a new IRST lens and landing gear lights. The canopy seal is done with thin strips of white decal. An Indian Fulcrum is next!

A beautiful build of an aircraft from one of the smaller Mig 29 operators and fitted with armament not usually associated with the type. Well done, I love the paint.

Thanks guys!

Reini, I pretty much had to mix everything, though the two darker shades are Tamiya mixes. It was complicated a bit further by realizing that the colour profiles didn't match photos, so I had to determine how much of it was colour distortion. I'll get back to you later this evening with what I used.

Lovely job and the camo colours I agree are very nice, not sure I've ever seen a Myanmar subject modelled before, excellent!
