Fit looks okay-ish, except on the nose. The join will require some work. Overall not terrible, but definitely no shake and bake

Peter Hardy
I am in as well, but I am special!

Martin Oostrom
You can have the special seat Peter, the one with the straps

Looking forward for final result!

I finally found some time and mojo. This is a kit from 2008 and it can be seen. Instructions are ancient style, fit is a work in progress.
If the ghost from Kyiv did exist, he deserves a better kit.
5 June, 12:14
I have also preordered the Ghost of Kyiv. Me 12!

So sad. Will there ever be a decent MiG-29 in the one true scale??
5 June, 17:14
Łukasz Gliński
Isn't it the Chinese one? I liked it. 🙂
Or do you mean another scale? 😉
5 June, 19:45
This looks like lots of work ahead... but if someone is going to make it look nice no matter what, is you Martin!!

Peter Hardy
Ah ha! A Mig made of putty! Sculpture lessons coming up!
5 June, 22:26
Martin Oostrom
It's a putty-fest Peter! And surprisingly for myself, after sanding it retained the general shape and feel of a Mig-29. So I put on more putty 😄

Martin Oostrom
Does anybody know what colour the wheel wells should be? Same as the wheels, some sort of forest green?
6 June, 06:48
Peter de Bruin
I thought, although depending on nationality it differs, the wheel wells are light greyish, same as the bottom of the plane in many cases.
For a Russian variant I had Vallejo 71121 noted down for the bottom and wheel wells.

Nice molding on your custom shaped kit here Martin. 😀 always liked the looks of the 29 and yours certainly looks like a 29. Well done!

I am fighting the same battle with my su 27 flanker

Łukasz Gliński
Not sure which camo you're to pick, but it seems grey to me
6 June, 09:29
Martin Oostrom
The instructions call out a combo of Fulcrum grey with Fulcrum grey/green. Whatever that may be.
So I guess it will be a grey/green camo.
6 June, 11:27
Łukasz Gliński
I meant wheel wells and the landing gear 🙂
Still, love that grey-green classic Fulcrum camos 👍
6 June, 11:42
Alec K
Lukasz: you mean the Trumperer release? I read mixed reviews. It's probably the best at this point though.
6 June, 12:48
Łukasz Gliński
Yup, it was a pleasure to build, though the open vents are there too (was there a kit with the closed option anywhere?)
Martin, sorry for this little OT 😉
6 June, 13:06
Peter de Bruin
The Zvezda kit has closed vents and has a good fit/2015 new tooling: MiG-29 (9-13) (Zvezda 7278, 1:72)

I don't mind off topic Łukasz.
I actually finished sanding and started painting two weeks ago. Forgot to post pictures.

The colours are… fantasy? I couldn't find Fulcrum grey and green and my regular shop, so I went with Tamiya ijn green and grey.
I call the effect "make-the-enemy-seasick-camo".
3 July, 12:31
Kyle DeHart
"Make the enemy seasick". Sounds effective to me. 😂
4 July, 01:23
Peter Hardy
Forgot you were doing this Martin! Good job on the camo!
4 July, 08:19
Łukasz Gliński
For me the colours are fine, that camo used to fade very quickly anyway.
Thx for the hint Peter 👍

Martin Oostrom
I have been decalling today. Unfortunately the decals were veeeeeeeeery fragile.
8 July, 21:47
Peter Hardy
It's a poor tradesman who blames his tools!
9 July, 00:30
Martin Oostrom
I'm only blaming myself. After taking the roundel picture, I put on two more on the lower wings. Tho whole ones.
For the love of everything dear to me, why didn't I just swap one?
9 July, 06:00
Peter Hardy
Because Marty, you love a challenge!
9 July, 06:22
Martin Oostrom
As it turns out, you can use Ammo enamel panel line wash over Tamiya lacquers without ruining your paint
10 July, 08:47
Looking quite good Martin
