I'm not a jet guy, but I figured some of you might be interested in this news from Trumpeter:

Ok ok....I know some of you are not just satisfied with 72th scale fulcrum from us that easily..... In this case.....May the Force of 32th scale with you....Brand New Tool 03223 MIG-29A Fulcrum 9.12. Coming soon!

Yeaaah !

 

I'm really happy.

The only downside is : am i still motivated enough to build my old Revell kit with the ton of Zacto resin?

Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)

It is very welcomed news that the 9-12 appears to be the first, and not the postulated 9-13 flagged on Cybermodeller's apparently jammed radar. The A has appeared in a host of attractive schemes including groovy blues.

Looking forwards equally to the MiG-29UB Fulcrum 9-51. Have the decals for the Armenian snow leopard ready for that one.

Thierry, thanks for your conversion work with the Revell A and Trumpeter M - somebody had to do all that to make these possible!

Of course it is, after I've invested all the money in the Zacto corrections and the Cold War Studio cockpit.

Phoned Hannants (Tony) a week ago and was told that they knew nothing about any of the new 1/32 Migs from Trumpeter?

Hopefully they'll be stocking them when they're out but it's interesting that they're currently unaware of the new listings atm. 

Will be getting a copy when it's available from someone out there!

Don't just talk about it, build it!

There are four MiG-29s in Trumpeter's 2016-17 catalogue: A, C, UB and SMT

These appear real, unlike the now mythological Devastator and F-100F

Possible.... The challenge may be attractive ! But it's lightweight compared to a brand new modern kit. :)

 

I already have at least 3 schemes i want to do : Polish Kosciusko squadron low-viz, North Korean (with the terrible garbage bag green !) and Slovak Mig-29AS with digital camo.

 

There are so many great schemes to do with the 29...

Can't wait, hopefully Cold War Studio will tailor their cockpit to fit the new kit, have decals for a Ukrainian 9-13 and a Hungarian UB  :wub:  :wub:

 

ps. Wonder if the Gripen in the background is a hint..?  :whistle:

I have the Revell UB and Zacto combo. I might, just might, build that and the Trumpeter UB side by side.

Easy task. Just ask Meng to announce one, and Trumpeters Devastator will immediatly hit the shelfes of your local hobby or online shop :ninja:

I don't promise. I guarantee! :punk:

This I think is good news! I'm not .necessarily a jet guy either, but there ARE a few i like, like the Flanker, Mig-29 UB, and the Jag.

If Trumpy fixed all the issues, I think I might have to pick up a UB.
