Alright you fans of Soviet & Russian military aviation, Linden Hill has released another nice set of markings, this time for your favorite 1/48 MiG-29 kits. This set covers six MiG-29s recently painted by Anton Pavlov for frontline Russian service.
The subjects rendered in this set include:
- MiG-29 9-13, Bort 21/RF-29160, 3624 AB, Russia, 2015, 'Aleksandr Nevskii'
- MiG-29 9-13, Bort 23/RF-29161, 3624 AB, Russia, 2015, 'Dmitri Donskoi'
- MiG-29 9-13, Bort 24/RF-29162, 3624 AB, Russia, 2015, 'Merkuril Smolenskii'
- MiG-29 9-13, Bort 29/RF-92262, Lipetsk AB, Russia, 2015, 'Hero of Russia General Sulambek Oskanov'
- MiG-29 9-13, Bort 10/RF-93717, Millerovo AB, Russia, 2015, 'R-73 Bee'
- MiG-29UB, Bort 75/RF-92196, Millerovo AB, Russia, 2015
The instructions provide good color and paint information to replicate these various color patterns.
This set is ideal for the Great Wall Hobbies 1/48 MiG-29 9-13 Fulcrum and Academy 1/48 MiG-29UB kits. The painting instructions provide the colors using Akan paints (also available through Linden Hill Imports) but if the interest is there, we can add color profiles to show equivalent paints from other sources. In any case, these are going to be the most current MiG-29 schemes as of the date of this article!

My sincere thanks to Linden Hill Decals for this review sample!
