Great Wall Hobby 1/48 MiG-29 all new tooled

Recommended Posts

Sorry I forgot to take pcitures of the cockpit.

The instruction panel is also very detailed and bottons, etc. are designed one by one comparing with the real cockpit photos.

Please check the instruction sheet instead.

You can try to put me off all you like, Yufei, I STILL WANT ONE!!! :woot.gif:

Thank you all for your inputs, guys.

Yesterday the formal product version finally arrived in my hands.

Some pics to share with you!

Box is much bigger than my expectation, and quite sturdy.

I was told it's the same size of their 1/48 P-61 ones.

Contents. Plastic sprues, photo-etched parts, film clear part, decal, box art leaf,...

You can find the clear parts are very well protected, and especially worth remindind is the vacform box for the missiles.

My first time to see such method to protect the precious parts.

Good job!!

Instruction sheet.

To be honest, since it was finished in a hash to carry up the Christmas schedule, maybe there'll be some little miss.

Please feel free to let us know and we will modify it in the next version surely.

Another surprise I found in the production version is that the details are even sharper than version 2.0

What's most inspiring is the injection pins have also been improved to the minimum effect.

Ver. 2.0:

Oh pre-order time is approaching !

I really appreciate the efforts of the workshop guys for reducing the ejector pin marks.

Thanks for the quick feedbacks, buddies.

By the way, the cockpit side where canopy meets the fuselage has been lowered by about 0.2mm compared with Test Shot Ver. 1, so it should match Mr. Drannikov's MiG-29 profile more closely now.

Thanks!

Looks incredible!! Big fan of GWH, but as you said, instead of me wasting money on the first version, and then asking for replacement parts....(and never getting a response)

I think I will wait till we make sure they got it right the first time......

But I will be getting one!

I think he was referring to the instruction sheet itself? I dunno, but to me that's of secondary importance.

I don't build 1/48, but I will very likely get one of these to make a companion for my only 1/48 build, HuAF Fishbed. Maybe HAD decals still has one of the commemorative MiG-29 schemes still available...

Yes I mean the instruction sheet.

Or maybe they won't be changed at all, who knows? :woot.gif:

Maybe I missed something on one of the previous posts but does the kit pictured above give you the option to build the earlier version (no upper flare dispensers, ventral fins, etc)? If not, any idea when that version will be released?

Regards,

John

Well the past is the past: the people who designed the P-61 kits aren't the ones who designed the MiG-29 kit. It's not because a previous kit had accuracy issues that things will continue this way. Didn't Kinetic improve the accuracy of their kits since the F-16s ?

Okay.

Have you looked at the pictures in this thread and the discussions about them, or are you just going off the manufacturer's name? Everyone seems fairly certain this will be a very accurate kit.

X2 for it being #1 on Christmas list!! Personally, I'd rather have 2 sets of Archers, I can source Aphids from MiG-21 kits, etc.

Good for you, but I don't have any MiG-21 kits and won't get them just for missiles... Beautiful Aphids were shown in one of the earlier posts in this thread and it is disappointing that they are not included in this kit :(

No R-60s in this release?... I'm very disappointed :crying2:

maybe they are not included in the "late version" boxing...

but if you look at post#77 page 4 of this thread, you'll see they have done the tooling for...

personally i rather have two sets of R-73 and no R-60 than one sets of each...
