1/32nd scale MiG-29G 'Polish Air Force'

Recommended Posts

I picked up this long out of production single-seat 1/32nd MiG-29A cheap recently, and fancied doing a Polish version so also ordered a set of Decals from Techmod.

 

I built this more or less out of the box, but did close the upper air intakes with plastic card, made some FOD guards for the exhausts and intakes,  and added a seat belt set from Eduard, but kept the cockpit closed as it's fairly basic for this scale.

 

Paints were from Xtracolour with varnish coming from Humbrol. I thought about coating it in gloss, as the Polish MiG-29s are very shiny and clean, but decided to do more of a satin coat for a better scale effect.

 

The Revell kit is actually a MiG-29A version, but after doing a little research the differences between that and the G version very mainly internal so I could get away with it without too many problems.

 

MiG-29G, Polish Air Force, 41st Tactical Fighter Squadron, Baltic Air Policing, 2012.

With the new Trumpeter kit hitting the shelves, no doubt a few more of these will be sold off - hopefully I can snap another one up at some point.

Really cool and clean build.

Great to see what can be achieved with these relatively basic Revell kits...

Loving the FOD covers too.
