I'm following with interest. I have the same kit in my stash and want to build it some day.

Hello Stefan, welcome on board :) You will not regret it, the kit is just a pleasure, even the accessories fit so far without worry to the whole :)

Of course Jens reliably found another self-punishing camouflage pattern and is preparing another enjoyable tour of watching a fellow modeler suffer through a difficult micro-detail-finish management job - watching ;)

I think I´ve seen this one being built on youtube and the decals, while nice, appeared rather thick (visibly thick after drying & varnish) - looking forward to your take on this very nice bird!

Hello Slavo if I only mastered 10% of your craft art, then I would be a happy man ;)
  If the decals should be so rough, then the paint remains, the only thing that could become a problem then I the tail, the shades of the tiger motif are too demanding for me.
Maybe I think on the fast also suitable replacement decal, it can not scare me moaent yet because the parts fit very well :)

Count me in!!!! I love this scheme, and having built one of the GWH Fulcrums I can say it is a fantastic kit. Looking forward to seeing your progress!

No prop? No nightfighter? Are you ok, Jens? Are you even Jens or did someone stole your account? ;)

Hello Michael, it's an honor to welcome you on my project MiG 29 :)
@ Michael, everything in the green area, on 16 / 17.11.2019 we have the special issue 80th Anniversary of the exhibition in Chemnitz Mikorjan, MiG 3 to MiG 27 I have already built and simple gray can not lure me to the nozzles ;) So which is correct and as I know the Fw 189 of GWH, I thought, the kit was worth its price .... at the moment that's still true ;)

Here is the video with GWH decals topics:

The MiG in particular:

Youtube Video


- about 13:00 into the vid, the decals go on + while he did a great job on the model & the outcome is really cool, in the end shots you can still see some of the thickness around the corners - he smartly avoid shots where it could be seen, but you get a glimpse or two...

And another GWH decal issue on youtube - there is a bit of a rant going on incl explicit language, cca. 7:00 into the vid you see why...:

Youtube Video


Just want to warn you to double check on the decals - I personally think they could be brought to submission with proper chemistry and a good layer of varnish & sanding... I am sure you´ll find a way, looking forward to see this cool plane built by the lord of the thousand snakes (@ that Bf110 Luftwaffe camo... ;) )

Apart from that, I have a GWH kit on my stash and I love the moulding and the detail... almost shy to cut it from the sprues when the time comes... ;)

Hello Slavo :) Thanks for the links and the info, but with everything you show so I have more and more consider that I come to a conclusion that in something similar to what you show as a video ;) in German then says "I have probably the pants full" :o

Jens, I´m sure you´ll manage - I´ll bet on a good day, you would free hand the tiger if you´d put some effort into it ;)

I just wanted to give you a nudge to take care and not run into a potential trap ;) I think the MiG-builder got it better than the Flanker, proper solvent and some extra varnish effort should get the trick done... Looking forward to see it happen, it´s a lovely model & paint scheme!

I'm following to watch Jens whip this one into shape.
25. September 2019, 22:41
me as well, this will be great!

Thanks for the motivational words and the help with the links to the construction of the MiG 29 AS, it was a pleasure to sculpt the model and a pleasure to design the colors :)

Top job Jens! Yet I am clueless - do you work in some time-warping-capsule or how did you manage to go from "some work on the instruments panel" to "finished model" that quickly...? And what a finish, it really is a looker

Were the GWH decals a topic, or did I raise false alarms? Would like to know, there is a GWH kit on my ToDo list... ;)
30. September 2019, 18:54
Thanks for the compliments :) It is happy and motivated for the next model: -) @ Slavo, I do not have a time capsule, but once I'm sitting then I stick with it. The GWK kit has a very simple blueprint and you have to check many things 3 and 4 times if the position is right, the fit can convince, but I also have a lot to replace with Eduard, the seat of brass is of course a great for themselves. The decals are relatively thick and not 100% faithful to the scheme, but this is in the digital pattern, the Gunze Gunze Mr. Color C 305 FS 36118 is ideal for mending and color accuracy, otherwise Micro Sol creates the bad corners on the model

Very nice work on this, the base is great as well! I hope the slovaks paint their new vipers the same way :)

Great looking digital camo, Jens!

Thank you Mates for the compliments, the GWH MiG 29 is simply a pleasure as a base :)

Wow nice Mig Jens.I got the same kit in my stash, hope it will turn out as good as yours .
Did u use the decals or a paint mask for the didital camo?

Hello Arne :) Thanks for the compliment, and I firmly believe that your MiG 29 AS will be much finer than I could ever show ;) The digital samples are all decals from the GWH kit, with a little Micro Sol that was quickly done :)
