« on: April 19, 2008, 04:40:38 AM »
Hey guys!!! I am new around here but with plenty of expirience building and painting plastic moldels.

I'm sure I have more at work like some Mig-35 mock ups and a brown Mig-29 SMT Algerian in a hanger.  I know I have a Cuban Fulcrum and a few Peruvian ones as well but all at work.  There are hundreds of pictures of Fulcrums on the net.  I kind of get bored with pictures and don't have tons of them I rather read pilot interviews or articels about fighters.  The Yemen and Algeria Fulcrums I cannot find a single thing to read about them.  I'm looking for some Yemen pilot talking about how his old Mig-29A couldn't stand a chance against his new SMT Fulcrum and how great the upgrades are, but nothing.  No follow up from RSG MIG, nothing but a few hard to find pictures.

Well I think for my self that the Mig-35 is the total upgrade of the Mig-29. Nonpilot if u have some Pictures of the Cuban Fulcrum please post them, I think there are special. some where a readed that they have the blue caribbean cammo, never saw it before. And I think the Cubans painted the Mig-23 and Mig-27 in the same Color. Thanks inn advance

Hey guys!!! I am new around here but with plenty of expirience building and painting plastic moldels.
Now I am finishing an Italiery 1/72 Mig-29. I am looking for a full gray camouflage. I just want to know any suggestions from real cammo, specially Russian Mig-29.

I don't know how real you want it to be?

What does the box say? Which variant is it? Which options do you have? I have a hard time figuring it out because the cockpit/canopy doesn't look right to me, so it's hard to say whether it is a normal spine 9.12 Fulcrum-A or the fatter one of the 9.13 Fulcrum-C. The camouflage appears to be a non-standard one, looking a bit like some the MiG-29S display aircraft. So I suppose it's a 9.12S Fulcrum-A. These pics are the MiG-29S display aircraft in the blue camo, you can see the resemblance with your model is there, but looks a bit different. Now the problem with this variant probably is that MiG-29S were produced for the RuAF and sold to various customers, but with the bigger spine of the 9.13 model Fulcrum-C (9.13S/SE). So I don't know what Italeri made of it?

I haven't seen many pics of overall grey Russian Fulcrums, Russian standard is two-tone, grey with green, but exists in various shades. Sometimes more grey or blue than green. And sometimes they are so old and weathered that they look all grey. Overall one-tone grey would be a non-standard camo, although not uncommon on some types.

However if it's a 9.12 Fulcrum-A then you have many more alternatives, Eastern European countries and earlier exotic customers with many all-grey... which mostly were standard in all-grey... provided you drop the R-77 and R-27ER/ET missiles which may be included in the kit if they made it based on the MiG-29S. The R-27ER/ET can be modified to look like the older R-27 version though, redo some fins.
