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!
