Didn't mention that when I contacted them, just the cockpit and the canopy, personally I don't think they're all that bad.

 

I see four detail sets now available from Eduard...

Personalky after looking as close as i care to i cannot see anything worth talking about in the Trumpeter Mig-29.
A seat and some PE is all it needs from here.
I just wish the SU-27 was half as good out of box.
The Revell Mig-29 is one of the worst crimes ever committed on the modeling community and have no idea with this lovely 32nd 29 now out why it even gets mentined. Even with Zactos brave effort it was wrong in the remaining areas untouched by resin.
It should be shut away in a dark cave never to be mentioned except in rumour.
It makes Trumpeters worst effort look stellar by comparison.
Can we just let it die quickly...lol

the revell kit was made without references, only way to not make the errors would be to produce no kit at all....

keep it in perspective

Hmmmmm .... I see this now entirely from a monetary perspective I must confess:

The Trumpet is little over 134 USD now. If one is lucky it might even be possible to shoot a cheaper one in the time ahead.

Even if henceforth the old Revell kit would drop significantly in price, in order to render a halfway decent interpretation of the original, you are bound to get the ZACTO parts which are at an understandably 128 bugs.

In any case, going the Revell / Zacto route would cost me more dough to achieve the same level of accuracy as the Trumpet at max, if at all.

 

Hmmmm .... makes a decision fairly easy for me I guess ....

Shame they didn't put that energy into something like a J.35 Draken instead, which was still around in numbers back then - and accessible.

I have the Revell UB and Zacto set. At least the nozzles can be used on the Trumpy. I might give the kit to my wife for her school raffle.

The fact that Scalehobbyist has it for $109.99 should make that decision even easier! ;)

 

Great to see the UB out now, too! :thumbsup:

Zactomodels' Vympels are great...

Really hankering after this UB but the boxes are even bigger than the colossal Intruder kit. I almost fell over holding the MiG-29A box! (There's nothing wrong with more compact packaging Mr Trumpeter, especially as most of us buy mail order.)
