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. 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.
Hello I was wondering what your thoughts on the Trumpeter MiG-29 UB. In general what aftermarket do you think it needs? I was looking at Aries aftermarket exhaust if the kit needed it? For example. What decals are available? How are the north star quality for the Wheels early and late? Thanks in advance Danny
Evening all, I've just finished building this as a mojo-mender as with a few long term projects on the go, I'd become bogged down and in need of something that went together without problems - this 1/32nd scale twin-stick MiG-29UB proved to be just the medicine. I picked this up at Telford for Â£25 which proved to be very good value for money. It's quite simple kit but in truth that's why I chose it - the cockpit lacks detail and the undercarriage bays are very basic, but the overall fit and construction is excellent and I encountered no construction issues at all. I used the decals from the box, which represent a MiG-29UB of 120 IAP based at Domna, Siberia, in the summer of 2003. Revell's colour guidance could only be interpreted by someone with a masters degree in colour mixing, so instead I just used pictures on the net for guidance, using mainly US equivalents from Xtracolour to get a close-enough match to the real thing. Other than that, it's as it comes in the box. Mikoyan MiG-29UB, Domna Air Base, Siberia, 2003. Jet pipe detail isn't too bad at all: Cockpit detail is pretty basic but some Airscale placards and dial decals and a belt set from Eduard means it's passable when peering through the canopy: The overall quality of the surface detail is excellent in my opinion: Wheel bays are basic but when sitting on its undercarriage very little is visible anyway: If you're thinking about a good value, large scale modern-era jet fighter, then I'd recommend this kit wholeheartedly...
