1/144 MiG-29 - Wanting to build 1, bought 3
Been wanting to build a Russian aircraft and there seams to be a real lack of good kits for the old soviet jet. Bought these 3 MiG 29's from DML Dragon, Revell and Academy one after the other hoping to get a better kit but alas all are so-so.
Best of the bunch is the Revell kit will be using the entire fuselage from that, the Dragon in Italeri for the European market boxing and Academy are on about the same level of detail, was expecting the Dragon to be the best but strangely not as good as the other Dragon kits i have.
Going to be using the landing gear, tails and weapons from the Dragon, they are the best and the Dragon does have a great selection of weapons which both the Revell and Academy lack.
Lastly the Academy, i will be using the canopy and decals, might also us the wheels.
Turns out to be a good thing i bought all 3 so that i can build maybe 1 or 2 decent MiG's got another Revell on the way.
