Is it possible to model a Mig 29K in 1/72 from currently available kits?  Are the differences with other Mig-29 versions all that noticeable like the sturdier undercarriage in said scale?

 

Thanks!

Note that there are two different kinds of MiG-29K, the original one that was in competition against Su-27K (Su-33) and the modern one. They are very different. The short answer to your question is; Nope. A vanilla MiG-29 (9.12/9.13) is radically different from either of the K's and one would essentially have to scratch build everything, it is far more involved than the landing gear.

The original K was based on the Izdelie 13 (9.13), but had redesigned trailing edge slotted flaps, no auxiliary intakes and other changes similar to the Mig-29M, while the current Mig-29K/Mig-35 is a totally different beast.

Habu, my disappointment clouded my reason; I didn't know what I was e-saying....Thanks to my fellow Joisyite Hems for that info....So is it possible to mix, match, hash to come up with a reasonable K???
