Zvezda Mig-29 SMT - A surprisingly tough build so far!
Posted by Faust on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 7:09 PM
A challenge is one thing, but sometimes you just run into something that’s just difficult for no reason, and it seems as if the designers can be heard sitting in their conference room snickering “Hah! Let them figure THIS out!”
 
Sadly, the Zvezda Mig-29 SMT is one such kit. Don’t get me wrong; it’s a nice enough looking kit, and all the weapons and features it has still make it cool. However, there are some design choices that break the “questionable” boundary and spin off into the void of unnecessary complexity. A perfect example of this latter kind of design are the intakes on Zvezda’s lumpy Fulcrum.
 
I know a lot of people were eager to see this one built, so I thought I’d best warn everyone that this is one Fulcrum that might push YOU past the tipping point! Check out my build report below, and don’t say I didn’t warn you about this one!

How is this challenging build going?

It's okay. 

 

The hardest part is behind me, now. I'm into painting and the like, so it is all "downhill" from here! At least, I hope it is! :)
