Zvezda 1/72 MiG-29SMT Fulcrum


Recommended Posts

Evening all,

 

My build rate has slowed up considerably in recent weeks, but projects have been ticking over in the background, with this MiG-29SMT from Zvezda crossing the finish line this evening. A lovely kit with largely great fit and good details, as well as a ridiculous amount of weapons to choose from. Built completely OOB, the main camouflage colours are by MRP (not sure about the accuracy of the darkest green...) while the details and metallics are courtesy of Hataka Orange Line and Alclad respectively.

Nice one Seamus!

Regarding the colours - The colours you used are correct for the SMT prototype with bort number 777. MRP has two sets of SMT colours - the other one is for operational examples. But there's always a but. There are actually three operational schemes. The latest one carries an ordinary green/grey camo. The early batch, that was originally in used by Algerians had splinter camo of three shades of Grey. Some were overhauled and repainted and the dark grey was replaced with a weird dark green gray which MRP bottles... But there were only a handful of repainted aircraft in service.
