Here is Heller's Mig-29UB. It is quite good both in fit and shape. I had already built the Airfix single seater, and when I got this from a friend, I thought that I will make one of those infamous Moldovian Mig-29UB for which I have two decal sh[...]

The other week I got a postage slip saying I had a package waiting at the local mail delivery spot. A few days ago I went to get it and in the package was a nice surprise. It was my prize for the December iModeler contest random Award, a very ni[...]
