Nosecone and pitot tube Chaff/Flare dispnsers Full set of pylons Wheels (with paint masks)

This resin MiG-29 Nosecone set corrects the shape of the nose and includes 3 beige resin pieces including the nose, pitot tube and a mounting bulkhead.  This resin set lengthens and corrects the shape of the nosecone.  The mounting bulkhead re-shapes fuselage allowing corrected round nosecone to fit.  Some sanding and putty is necessary.  This set also improves the shape and accuracy of the pitot tube.

These resin MiG-29 Chaff Dispensers set corrects the shape corrects the shape and detailing on the kit parts.  This resin set replaces the Trumpeter parts with highly detailed replacements.  This detail set includes 2 parts cast in beige resin.

These resin missile pylons set is designed to add extra accuracy and detail to your next MiG-29. The set includes 6 resin pylons, 2 humps and 2 optional extra mounting brackets. Detailed launching mechanisms are included on the undersides of all of the pylons.  Resin casting is of a very high quality and all the detail is very well done with no air bubbles. This new resin set from Zactomodels includes 3 different types of pylons which includes: APU-470 pylons 2 pylons included. These pylons for the Alamo missile are carried on the inboard stations.  APU-73 pylons 2 pylons included. These pylons for the Archer missile are carried on either of the two outboard stations.APU-60 pylons 2 pylons included. These pylons for the Archer missile are carried on either of the two outboard stations.

These resin wheel set is designed for the 1/32 MiG-29 and include painting masks and are designed to fit the Trumpeter MiG-29. These are direct replacements for the kit wheels. These are weighted wheels and the brake calipers need to be located towards the front of the wheel while keeping the flat spot on the bottom of the wheel with very subtle bulge on the side-walls, this means there is a left and a right wheel, so make sure you don't get the wrong wheel on the wrong side.  Hub details mastered by Alexander Rogal include detailed brakes as well as separate fittings if you want to add extra detail. Instructions are provided showing hydraulic line locations. Pre-cut vinyl paint masks are included to simplify painting.  Though designed to fit the Trumpeter kits these wheels can be easily adapted to fit the Revell kit.

These resin/photo etched exhausts are designed for the big Trumpeter MiG-29 kit and these take the model to a whole new level of extreme detailing.  On a  jet, the exhausts stand out and get plenty of attention.  

This combo set also includes Includes 1 pair of Alamo-A (B, C or D if requested), 1 pair of Archers and 1 pair of Aphid missiles.

Resin casting is of a very high quality and all the detail is very well done with no air bubbles.

Wow...this is a massive set and offers a discount by buying all these sets together rather than individually.  This would give you some excelelnt detailing and correct accuracy issues with the Trumpeter MiG-29A kit.

I would like to thank Chris at Zactomodels for providing me with this product sample.
