Nice topic! Watching with interest.
Btw nice start and amazing looking pit.
24. February at 11:42:41
Thank you for your comments!
In der Tat! Dieses Projekt hat mit Deinem inspirierenden Modellversium-Beitrag seinen Anfang genommen!

An interesting aircraft! I would have figured with the forward swept wings you wouldn't need much nose weight...
2. March at 03:44:22
Here it is, Holger, please fasten your seat belts....
I am very pleased about your interest on this project, gentlemen, because this Hasegawa kit is a sound offer indeed! By no means over-detailed but with very neat and precisely done parts. Yeah, Stefan, the subject of this kit is spectacular!
Gordon, nose-wheel kit part seems to be a quite sturdy, a one-piece affair.....

A first coat of "White" Gunze H 316 have been applied, later on it was sanded off on some areas to get a more satisfying smooth and glossy surface.
3. March at 11:58:28
Nice progress so far!
And I'm also a bit surprised with the amount of lead in this one. Since I've got that one in my stash, it'd be good to know
Are you going for an ever so slightly weathered look or brand spanking new paintjob?
3. March at 13:27:30
Thank you Rene! To be honest ,I did not think a lot about the weight needed- I just packed the openings full with lead. I like my models to have a certain heaviness, that makes them sit more stable on the shelf....
4. March at 13:26:20
The X-29 is nearing completion! Decals worked very well, which was a great relief after having read certain construction reviews.... This Hasegawa-offering could be built up to a really nice and neat representation of this exciting aircraft!
6. March at 21:20:30
Ah you like to make your planes earthquake-proof
She turned out great! Sanding paid off
And I'm relieved to see the decals behave, I read those reviews too!
and kind of feared for the coming masking job.
7. March at 08:31:37
Thank you Rene! Decals worked without any flaws- indeed, masking that complex appearance would be fun! Have un with your X-29, it´s really a nice an inspiring plane!
One of the few matters not offered by this kit are the two pitot tube near the canopy, I will reproduce them with plastc sheet- or etched parts- and needle-tips
8. March at 10:00:52
Marvellous. One of those futuristic aircraft that proved Gerry Anderson could see into the future
8. March at 10:03:21
Die Dekorstreifen an der Bugnase sind ein wenig zu weit hinten , liegen eigentlich am Staurohr an , ansonsten wieder einmal mehr eine klasse Arbeit !!! Die vielen Bleigewichte stören nicht, ich nehme grundsätzlich auch immer mehr als notwendig. Weiter so ........
9. March at 08:49:21
Thank you both for your remarks! Oliver, danke für den Hinweis! Das erklärt natürlich einiges..... zb. das auffallend stumpfe Ende des vordersten roten Decal-Randes!
Bei der nächsten X-29 mache ich es besser!
Your words of encouragement are very welcome

Very nice build so far Roland. I've always wanted to build one of these in 1:48.
9. March at 12:38:49
Looking good! what did you use for the cockpit? That is not a Hasegawa OOB
10. March at 03:13:48
Dave, that's correct. The kit decal was used for the instrument panel, the rest of the equipment came from the etched-parts spare box. The harness was taken from an Eduard set.... ummm.... "Luftwaffe seat belts
10. March at 09:23:37
Roland, another proof of your talent. You plane builders have the luck to start new projects every 4 to 5 weeks. We, slow shipbuilders once or twice a year. I envy you guys sometimes
11. March at 12:55:58
At first, thank you very much for your interest and words! Lode, you point to something I admire in you shipbuilders: long breath, staying power and lasting enthusiasm! I try to learn from you.
12. March at 11:25:16
Thank you Roland, for this nice compliment. Most appreciated from a builder as you are
12. March at 12:39:07
Hehe yeah this little kit looks like a relaxed in-between build. Good point mentioning the decal alignment!
Luftwaffe seatbelts... Hear hear
12. March at 12:43:20
Yeah, this "Luftwaffe"- Grumman Hybrid was an ideal small project for in between.
Lode, I once have to try out my patience on a decent ship, way not "HMS Perseverance"?
12. March at 16:27:59
This enjoyable project is finished... Grummans X-29 is quite a fascinating plane with pleasing lines- and this Hasegawa kit still offers a chance to get that lines captured in scale.
12. March at 20:19:13
Roland, excellent choice. If you build it faster than Captain Slow (me) you'll really persevered
12. March at 21:49:58
Another great looking effort, Roland! That would have been quite the masking endevour if the decals were unusavle. Now you need to make a X-31 to go along side it...
13. March at 13:44:42
Thank you for your kind remarks, Gordon! Indeed, X-planes have caught my imagination, but it will be Trumpeters F-107, which will continue this series.
13. March at 16:52:55
Very nice, Roland. Good job with decals. Congrats!
13. March at 18:11:13
Wow. Makes me want to strip mine and redo my decals. Very Nice work!
14. March at 03:30:39
Looks great Roland, ultimate X-29 of all internets I assume.
I remember having issues with those long decals last year and some recommend cutting them in parts, did you manage to avoid cutting them?
And what did you use for the interior detailing?
14. March at 21:15:28
Thank you very much for this great praise! I looked at your construction report beforehand and was warned Despite or thanks to that, Iwas happy enough to get all decals applied in one piece. The interior of the cockpit was improvised from etched parts, the harness comes from an Eduard "Luftwaffen" set
15. March at 09:01:01
Fantastic looking result Roland!

I thought you're gonna write about a unique edition of X-29 PE fret
but in such case, lot of respect for that very convincing scratchbuilt cockpit, Sir
