GWH 1/48 Mig-29 Fulcrum A


Recommended Posts

Things are coming along. Progress has been a little slow due to simultaneous projects, but it's getting there. Fit has been good to average, with the exception of the intakes which were absolutely dreadful.

Got the exhaust painted. I used GSI Mr. Metal Color buffable Iron for the inside of the exhaust, and used Vallejo Metal Color shades of Jet Exhaust, Steel, and Pale Burnt Metal for the rest.

Hi tex really like the paint , looking very good , like the panzer putty  too ,,you say fit is good to average, but whats the kit like for accuracy,the great wall f15 is supposed to be a very nice kit,probably the best f15 ,but i believe we only have academy in 1/48 in this scale for the 29 do you know if its better than that one,.? Cheers

This kit is far superior to the Academy kit. Despite a few fit issues, this kit is easily the best Mig-29 available. I recommend this for intermediate to experienced modelers. As far as accuracy, I am not a Mig expert, but it sure looks like a Mig-29 to me.

Really nice progress on the MiG 29. I will stand corrected but I think GWH reworked the engine intakes areas where you have encountered problems on their later releases in the MiG 29 series (9-13 & SMT) and the fit is now markedly better.

 

Look forward to seeing some more progress as I have a 9-13 to eventually build myself and this has been an interesting article.

That would certainly explain why I had no big issues with the intakes on my 9-12 Early Type release! I did wonder why people were having problems with the fit.

 

Good to see some progress with this, looking good.

The Academy MiG-29 is a totally different kit generation. With a lot of AM it builds into a nice kit though.....

 

What are some fit issues here would translate into major resin or PE integration work and its resulting fit issues there!!!!

 

 

By the way, excellent work Texan76a

Got the stencils on the pylons, missiles, and fuel tank. Unfortunately, there was a shortage of decals for the Archer missile pylons. GWH only printed enough for two. So I did two with decals on one side, and put the opposite side decals on the other two. Tomorrow I will start the task of the airframe stencils.

Got the missiles on the pylons, landing gear attached, and panel line wash complete. After drying overnight, I will put on a matte coat in preparation for final weathering and assembly. Getting close to the end of the line.
