 Hoping this does well and they do some more.

 

Not sure about this particular kit, but what I've heard from distributors out there, most if not all of the recent modern jet kits out of China are sold out before they hit the streets in the US.  I wouldn't be surprised that the first shipment of Mig 29s were all already sold to the distributors and on down the line.

Friend of mind just got his mitts on some of these.

 

I'll be getting mine in a couple of weeks!

 

Comes with Hungarian and Russian AF markings, but not Cold War.

Got one on Tuesday, and have a second one on the way. They are in stock at Squadron and they have a 25% Memorial Day sale, so the price is $100.

In at Squadron.

https://www.squadron...3-p/tr03223.htm

Ordered!

FYI:

Use coupon code MEMDAY17 and it's only $99 + shipping

 

Well, I just clicked on order now and the web page is having a hiccup.  Trying to communicate with papal.

EDIT:  Got it!  Had to redo the order a couple of times.  But $112.69  shipped to my door.

Hmm, just worked for me using Paypal. BTW, shipping charges drop over $100, and using the coupon drop the price on the MiG to just under $100, so if you need a bottle of paint or anything else cheap, might want to add it.

I thought about adding just for the free flag,  but I was thinking shipping costs worked the other way around.  Oh well.  :innocent:

Oh shes a cracker...
Got home yesterday to two boxes with the 29's.
The fuselage moldings are superb work.
Finally we get a great looking early 29...

Started cutting out the parts on mine. The cockpit is actually pretty detailed and matches well with photos of the real thing. The seat is OK and is made up of a number of parts, but only has molded in shoulder belts. The lap belts are missing and no PE belts this time. I think I may use a Quickboost seat, but the rest of the pit is GTG. Also may replace the wheels, not that the kit wheels aren't nice, but I'm not a big fan of rubber tires. Hope to build the first one mostly OOTB.

Overall, I think this is one of their A-team kits as far as detail goes. A big leap over the old Revell kit, and more detailed than their M/K kits, especially in the wheel wells, intakes, and engines. Think there are some shape issues around the cockpit area of the fuselage (canopy seems to taper too much inward toward the rear) and the air brake looks a little wide, but it definitely looks like a MiG-29.

One thing I've found is that the kit doesn't come with the Odd Rods IFF aerials for the nose, and the photos of the HuAF birds I've seen all seem to show them, so I'll probably got for Russian markings on this one.

Very encouraging, thanks.
