Revell + Academy 1/144 - MiG-29 Fulcrum " Soviet Air Force" - Completed
In all honesty this recently completed MiG-29 Fulcrum to me just does not look right, maybe its the lack of undershading, weathering or maybe i just got the colour wrong, that green is far too bright.
Followed building this model quite a few other modelers attempt at updating this kit but alot of mine just does not look right, especially the nose cone from certain angle. Wonder why there is a total lack of decent Russian / Soviet aircraft kits available, at least for the latter cool aircraft.
Put this one down to learn from ones mistakes, decided to try and only build newer more accurate kit from now on like Revell, Platz, Sweet and maybe buy a few of the newer smaller company who are releasing some nice looking aircraft.
Favorite part of this build it the snow guard on behind the rear of the front landing gear wheel.
Got the Polish Fulcrum coming next which i think is a improvement on this one.
