Airfix's 1/72 MiG-29

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me if Airfix changed the formulation of the plastic used in the rebox of their Mig-29? I'm currently building the one in the original boxing that has the RLM02-coloured plastic, and it is crazy brittle. I've had to repair a bunch of bits and the nose landing gear has already broken a few times. I'd love to get the new Czech boxing but I'm wary of having to deal with that beautiful but super delicate nosegear, especially if it just keeps snapping on me.

The lasest Czech boxing of this ids in their now standard grey plastic.

I have found both the Airfix MiG 29 and Su 27 in their original boxings to have very brittle plastic.
