Surely Trumpy has their well documented issues, but I for one am glad to see them still producing some jet kits. Like them or not they did help create this monster that 1/32 scale has become today.

Well said, and remember that Trumpeter's 1/32 MiG-29K/M Fulcrum prototypes are very good models (the poor wing fold excepted)

Oh man, I am hosed! If it is anywhere close to the quality of the 1/48 GWH kit i will be getting about a dozen of these A models kits. A good 1/32 Mig-29 is a holy grail kit for me and I already have about 15 schemes lined up to do. I wonder if i should unload my 11 revell A and UB kits...  :frantic:  :help:

This is great to see this one coming. As soon as this kit was announced late last year, I started the Mig-29M I had in the stash as I thought that once the new tool is there my motivation to tackle an old kit would completely disappear. I did the same with the Mirage III from Revell. Lucky me that I do not buy multiple of the same kit (with the exception of Tamiya F-16).

Will this turn into a Devastator plan, or one of Wingnut Wings mythical "Special Editions"?

 

I'd be surprised if it pops up this year, or even next year.


"First, shalt thou take out the Holy pin. Then, shalt thou count to three - no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shall thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that then thou shalt proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number is reached, then lobbeth thou thy Holy hand grenade of Antioch towards thy foe who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it. Amen"

At last !!!!!! hope this kit will be a success , coming from Trumpeter , one can expect the best as the worst ....

Alain

Come on Alain, Trumpeter is not perfect but i cannot remember any really awful kit from them. Sometimes some details are a bit off, but nothing that cant be corrected.

For $20, and it's their first kit. I've got 3 boxes in the stash + 3 Mig-17 (basically the same game). I still have not finished one, but started to play with the plastic and it's not that bad. Really. Especially for $20. (ok, it may need a corrected tail and possibly a resin pit)

And i finished a Mig-19PM (not a huge improvement over the Mig-15/17 kits) and was very happy with it. It was a lot of fun to build.

Really if im honest, it was mainly the wing to fuselage fit that made the kit nearly unbearable. To that end I DID finish it............begrudgingly as it may have been.
