MiG-29 SMT Photo Etch and Masks for Zvezda Kit

1:72 Eduard

Trumpeter aren't the only model company releasing state of the art kits of modern Soviet/Russian subjects.  Zvezda have a long tradition of producing accurate, buildable kits of these subjects, and their MiG-29 kits are no exception. Well received by the modelling community, the kits are accurate and compete well with the (also very good) kits from Trumpeter. Now Eduard have released a set of photo etched parts to complement the MiG-29 SMT variant.

This set includes two frets of photo etched parts. The first fret contains pre-painted parts for detailing the cockpit and includes harnesses, pull handles and a cushion for the ejection seat, as well as details for the instrument panel, cockpit sidewalls, control column, rudder pedals, canopy and HUD unit. A range of pre-painted electroluminescent strips are also included on the fret. The second fret is unpainted and contains further parts for the cockpit, such as the rear cockpit decking, as well as details for the rest of the airframe. The landing gear gets hydraulic lines and a mud guard, there are the automated guards for the engine air intakes and afterburner flame holders for the other end of the engines. There are also details for the missile rails, which is helpful if you wish to finish your model without a full load of weapons. Smaller details include a host of small aerials and plates to dot around the airframe.

Conclusion

 

This is a sensible and worthwhile upgrade for Zvezda's rather excellent kit. It includes all of the extra details that you would want, with the added benefit of the cheaper Zoom set if you just want to jazz the interior up a bit. Recommended.
