Finally some new releases from Zactomodels!

For the new Trumpeter MiG-29A and UB kits:

 

Exhausts -

These were made by modifying and adapting the exhausts Alexander Rogal made for the MiG-29M/K kit (also used for the Zactomodels Revell correction set).

They are now full depth.

Side2_zpslxd5xwlb.jpg

 

I slightly revised the shape of the outer exhaust petals to have a more accurate shape.

This is closer to the original part that Alexander made which I had to modify to fit, but didn't quite nail the shape.

Top is the new shape. Lower is the previous version that had too much curve on the petals. Subtle, but more accurate.

Chaff/flare dispensers (MiG-29A):

 

I adapted the parts I made for the Revll kit to fit the Trump kit. This was more involved than it sounds...

Trumps parts are a very weak attempt considering how visible these are (and their parts don't fit well!).

Nosecone:

 

This new set corrects the profile, corrects the cross section which is supposed to be round and lengthens the nosecone.

It includes a mounting bulkhead that spreads the kit fuselage to better accommodate the round nosecone.

Advanced warning!!! :BANGHEAD2:

There will be some sanding and putty work necessary to make it fit. But then the stock nosecone on my copy of the kit doesn't exactly fit well.

It also includes a new pitot tube toe rplace the tree trunk Trumpeter provides.

In addition, I still offer really nicely detailed pylons (also mastered by Alexander Rogal) that will fit the kit.

Awesome missiles mastered by Alexander.

And wheels to replace the nasty rubber things Trump provides (Alexander did the hubs and I did the tires).

I am offering all the parts separately and also a MiG-29A combo which includes all of the above at a 10% discount.

You can choose between the mixed loadout shown, an Alamo/Archer loadout or Alamo/Aphid loadout.

Yes, buy the 1/32 B17 but NO  am allowed. That's like taking a dump without TP.
