1/32nd MiG-29G ‘Polish Air Froce’
I picked up this long out of production single-seat Revell 1/32nd MiG-29A cheap recently, and fancied doing a Polish version so also ordered a set of Decals from Techmod.
I built this more or less out of the box, but did close the upper air intakes with plastic card, made some FOD guards for the exhausts and intakes, and added a seat belt set from Eduard, but kept the cockpit closed as it’s fairly basic for this scale.
Paints were from Xtracolour with varnish coming from Humbrol. I thought about coating it in gloss, as the Polish MiG-29s are very shiny and clean, but decided to do more of a satin coat for a better scale effect.
The Revell kit is actually a MiG-29A version, but after doing a little research the differences between that and the G version very mainly internal so I could get away with it without too many problems.

With the new Trumpeter kit hitting the shelves, no doubt a few more of these will be sold off – hopefully I can snap another one up at some point.
