scooter Posted March 28, 2011 Share Posted March 28, 2011 (edited) Just finished today is my MiG-29B 9-12B (aka Fulcrum) of the Cuban Air Force. This depicts machine 910 of No. 231 Fighter Squadron ca. late 1990's. This particular aircraft has been active since at least 1990 and was last seen in 2008. Ten of these were originally delivered, of which apparently now four remain in service. From the beginning, my goal was to build with no extra expense, and to use only what I had on hand as far as paint/decals/resources go. This old Hasegawa 1/72 kit is nothing special, and depicts an early version Fulcrum, but it went together well and it was a lot of fun to try to replicate the paint scheme. I built it totally clean OOB as data on loadout was sketchy and the parabrake housing was apparently already opened! The decals are from the High Decals set (HD72044 â€“ note: the FAR roundels on the sheet instructions are reversed) and thanks to my friend Xavi and Antonov for their assistance with weathering and finish. I also enjoyed the research side of this as well. Enjoy! Adam Edited March 28, 2011 by scooter Quote Link to post Share on other sites
