I almost never work on two kits at once, especially when they are big. However, I simply could not wait to share the other build I have been working on, the Slovakian MiG-29AS in digital camouflage. I have had the Trumpeter MiG-29A kit for several years now and have collected some aftermarket: Scale-Pro Digital Camouflage Stencils Quickboost Nosecone Quickboost Ejection Seat Eduard Cockpit Set Eduard Canopy Mask Mastermodel Pitot Tube Tamiya "Bird Slicers" IFF antennae I could be mistaken (certainly not the first time), but I believe the aircraft has the following paint: FS 36375 FS 36493 FS 36081 My references are all online, but include Seans epic work: As well as Martins of course: Unfortunately the photos are gone from the latter, but I still have learned a lot! I will be making some corrections, and wanted to start with these so that I haven't invested a lot of time and effort in the build if they do not work out. So far my main areas of focus is on the upper fuselage: --To extend the LERX forward I have scored plastic inside the upper fuselage forward and behind the gun port and bent it out. When fitted to the lower fuselage this creates a gap which I will address with plastic shims, then sand the profile to shape and rescribe --The curved line below the cockpit is a actually two overlapping planes, so I've sanded the upper part to accentuate this and make this section more vertical --The dorsal spine should be rounder in profile, so I've sanded it back with a slight bulge at the APU --The upper bulges for the engines are anemic and too angular. I will be adding Tamiya putty, sand, and scribe. Anyway, here are the photos: My subject aircraft Cheers, Tom
