Now for something entirely different....

A passion of mine is painting camouflage preferably freehand and desert schemes in particular :D This paintjob was challenging, mostly because the vertical stabs had to be mounted and could not be painted separate.

It is an almost entirely OOB build besides of the pitot tube, if there is ONE thing I will add to a build it is a metal pitot tube :P

The G.W.H Fulcrum was a very nicely detailed and crisp kit though some assembly solutions were a bit unnecessarily challenging, like the engine nacelles....take good care when putting those together, I needed lots of putty :P (not necessarily the kits fault, I have a tendency to burn through putty at a rate :/)

 

this particular Fulcrum is painted in the colors of the Uzbeki airforce....looks kind of like a gown my mom had in the 70's :P....and not entirely unlike as if the whole aircraft was covered in sick :P

Wow!  That's an excellent build and a beautifully executed camo scheme ... even if one might question the Uzbeks' choice of colours!!

Thanx alxzinbox :D

the photos are alright, the editing of the pictures are a bit sloppy but I got better at it with time.

this is a few years old build.

I love it. I built this kit as a Moldovan Air Force example; love these type of schemes

Thanx Josh :D

 

indeed, it is the more exotic schemes that are interesting. A fun part of building a jet with many users is to find those intriguing schemes, it is the same thing with the F-16.... I don't think I've ever done a "vanilla" F-16 :P

In my opinion, the colors of this Uzbek MiG-29 really have a certain resemblance to the colors on the national woman Uzbek costume:

😉😁

which, however, does not apply to the fact that you made a really good model of this MiG-29!

Aren't those MiGs now painted in dark grey? the current AFM issue has great images ;)

Truly excellent & an unusual scheme as well. What's not to like!

 

I quite fancy one myself, got some Polish decals but just need a kit to go with them.

indeed I'm drawn to schemes that are a bit out of the ordinary.

 

not a clue...if so it is sad, I prefer colourful jets :)
