  1. Spanish resin manufacturer, Scratchaviation (aka Scratchaeronautics), will be releasing a resin 1/72 MiG-35 kit. Other than Deagostini's diecast 1/161 model, this will pretty much be the only MiG-35 kit so far. It's available for pre-order on their page for 40 euros, or about $45. http://scratchaviation.webs.com/apps/webstore/products/show/7388373 Their Facebook page shows off their other kits: https://www.facebook.com/Scratchaeronautics/ Anyways, I'm glad someone has stepped up to provide a kit that has been sorely lacking in the Soviet/Russian scale modeller's collection.
  2. Hi all! I present to you my latest project, the 1/48 Great Wall Hobby MiG-29SMT Fulcrum-E, "Red 23" in the fantastic splinter camo of the Russian Air Force, circa 2010. This is indeed a beautiful kit that goes together very nicely, with relatively few fit issues. One such issue, according to builds I had seen during research, are the intakes. But I kinda cheated... 1. I Did not install the full engines and 2. I modeled the FOD doors in the down position. By doing this and removing all of the locator pins on the rear trunking I was able to get the fit to be nearly perfect. Aftermarket used were a Quickboost seat and Master pitot. The pitot gave me some trouble, as it didn't really fit the GWH nose. So I did a hybrid with the kit plastic and master metal. I have actually already broken it once now, and looking at the pics it seems I did not get it perfectly centered on the plastic part. So I will need to fix that. I didn't even notice it in person, looks ok from any reasonable distance... but photographs tend to magnify things! Decals are OOB, and they are actually quite good. No issues there whatsoever. So, looking at pics I have seen the SMTs in states anywhere from pristine to absolutely filthy. I wanted to model mine somewhere in the middle. But it did kinda get away from me (LOL), and is a bit more heavily weathered that I originally set out to do. Oh well, that seems to be something I have to fight often. Enough chatter, on to the pics. Hope you enjoy! Kit: 1/48 Great Wall Hobby MiG-29SMT Fulcrum-E 9-19 Decals: OOB Aftermarket: Master Model Pitot, Quickboost Seat Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), Tamiya Liquid White Primer (for marble coat), Gunze Aqueous H333 Extra Dark Sea Gray, H75 Dark Sea Gray, and FS 36320 Dark Ghost Gray , Mr Paint MRP-189 Traffic Gray, Tamiya Rubber Black, Clear Red, Clear Yellow, and Smoke, and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Hot Metal Violet, Hot Metal Blue, Airframe Aluminum, and Burnt Iron. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 5:1 ratio for final matte coat. Mig Ammo Deep Gray panel wash.
  3. http://www.janes.com/article/68801/ukraine-announces-plans-to-develop-new-fighter Due to its current no-so-great relationship with Russia, Ukraine is going to develop its own lightweight fighter jet. As the article says, it's going to be more or less a MiG-29 (MiG-29C I'm guessing) but with wholly Ukrainian engines and electronics. Between this, the MiG-35, and the proposed fifth-gen Fulcrum that Russia and the United Arab Emirates are going to be producing, it looks like the Fulcrum design is going to be around quite a bit longer than expected. Of course, I just want a model of all three. EDIT: http://bmpd.livejournal.com/2447644.html proposed concept art of the Russian/UAE Fulcrum. Like the love-child of the MiG 1.44 and MiG-29. I've found nothing for the Ukrainian LBL, although this article (http://quwa.org/2017/03/20/ukraine-intends-develop-new-multi-role-fighter/) says that Ukraine has drawn up sketches of it.
  4. Are the bombs on this MiG-29 the FAB-250 M54 type, or of a different kind? http://russianplanes.net/id198889
  5. Hi everyone! Here's my latest project done. This is the excellent Zvezda 1:72 MiG-29 in S model (izdeliye 9.13) built in the markings of aerobatic group Strizhi (Swifts). The model was built for "Build a Bear Group Build" currently running here at ARC. You can access full article with photogallery here: https://vvsmodelling.com/2016/10/23/mig-29-9-13-fulcrum-c-swifts/
  6. After finally finishing the MiG-25RBF conversion, I've finally gotten around to building Zvezda's 1/72 MiG-29. I don't know if it's just me, but this kit practically snaps together, and with little seam lines to show for it. It seems like it'll need a fraction of the filler than your usual kit needs, let alone ICM's MiG-29 9-13. I don't know how it compares to Great Wall Hobby's 1/48 9-13 (mine is still collecting dust, sadly) but this kit is a breeze so far. I haven't seen much in the way of completed builds, though. Probably not looking hard enough.
  7. Hi all! Here it is, finally, after weeks of painting! I had this model built, painted and 'decaled' last year in Russian markings, but, while working on another model a couple of months back I stumbled upon some pictures of this plane and that was it, I had to make this scheme. So, I striped all the paint of it and started to paint it in this digi-camo scheme. After days and days of cutting Tamiya tape for masking and painting all I had left to paint were the rudders, and let me tell you, they were a pain in the butt to paint. I striped the paint twice 'cause it wasn't right, but eventually I managed to finish it, well, 99% at least, as you will notice, the pitot tube is missing. I lost it, thought about scratch building one, but I just ordered a resin one last night... I'm also working on a Su-30 and at the moment I'm sick of scratch building. Some stuff had to be scratch build though, the antennas in front of pit, the one behind the pit, on the engines trunks, the flap actuators and well, you'll see the rest. So, here it is... Thanks for lookin"! Cheers Emil
