MiG-29s in Libya

Looks like Russia is sending clandestine support to rebels in Libya.  The most interesting part of the story to me is the fact that the MiG-29 is almost completely out of the Russian Air Force inventory.

An Azerbaijani Air Force MiG-29 has crashed.  One has to wonder the mechanical state of these aircraft.

Egypt is receiving upgraded MiG-29Ms. This article has an interesting overview of their costs and features.

I mentioned the other day a new set of masks for MiG-29SMT camo.  Well, it looks like another model company is releasing a MiG-29SMT. Zvezda is stepping up to the plate.

I got the Trumpy kit not long ago.  These might come in handy.

This MiG is in a scheme I’ve only seen on the T-50.  My question is, is this a MiG-29 or MiG-35?  29 I think.

Here is an interesting story from the Ukraine.  What I find interesting is the third photo down of the Ukrainian MiG-29 Fulcrum-Cs

I found this photo on this site, which is a great avation blog.  The blue nose and dielectric panels are unusual.

Magazine review: AiR Isssue #32 (Oct/Nov 2010)

I don’t often purchase this magazine.  That is a shame.  It is really a good magazine, and I have picked up several tips from it.  However, the $16 price tag is just too much to make it a regualr part of my modeling purchases.

I got this issue because of two things.  1st, there is an article by an excellent modeler , Yufei Moa.  He is one of the best 72nd scale modeler I’ve seen and I love his work.  This issue contains a model of an early MiG-29.  As usual, the work is inspired. 

Also, there is a build by another modeler of the Trumpeter Su-15.  Since I am in the beginning stages of this kit, I wanted to see what someone else did, especially since the modeler/author did the same scheme that I wanted to do.  It is a very nice job, with very subtle fading and weathering.

Again, I’d recommend this issue, but given the price, I just have a tough time recommending every issue of this magazine, even with its quality content.

Here is a great shot of a Belarussian (sp?) MiG-29.  I love the colors on this one.
