MiG-29 in NATO Camo
Last year's visit to Kecskemet
Air Show left fair amount of impressions, and
brought a lot on fresh ideas and interests.
Among them, there is MIG-29 in Hungarian Air
Force markings, but in new, NATO scheme.
Regarding the lack of such
decals in the market, I started planning making
and combining my own, but luckily my friend
from Budapest (thanx Zsolt!) forwarded me a
link to webpage of a new Hungarian decal producer
Computers Ltd who is producer of decals
I was searching for, and many others (as by
what can be seen on their webpage, we might
soon expect even more modelling stuff from their
As I was already well hooked-on
to a Hungarian NATO MIG, I decided to try ordering
TOFF decals at any costs. I thank to Mr. Tóth
Péteru for giving me a set of decals for review
(and, also for use)...
So, let's start with decals.
Decals are printed on one piece thin, clear
foil sticked to 62 x 58 mm paper base. That
means that you'll have to cut any of it out,
before using it. On the reviewed set in 1/72
scale there is some 126 decals, of what 8 goes
to national markings (only 6 are to be used),
8 goes for numerical codes (for two different
aircraft), further 8 goes for tactical markings
and badges (two different badge types), 2 goes
for "false canopy", and the rest are
stenciles. Decals are printed fairly precise,
but edges on bigger decals are a bit smudged.
There are decals for two aircraft stationed
in Kecskemet AFB (59TFW HUAF): Bumblebee Squadron
(No. 21) & Puma Squadron (No. 04). Unfortunately,
scheme for only No. 21 is given. As decals which
are different for those two aircraft are marked
with the same numbers, from the painting and
positioning scheme it isn't too clear which
Painting and positioning scheme
is printed on A4 size paper by a ink jet printer,
and due to pale print some things are not too
clear visible. There are 4 drawings of MIG with
numerically marked decals and color chips with
RAL & FS markings.
This decal set has a price
of 10$ directly from the producer, and also
is available the same set for 1/48 scale, but
with almost double amount of stenciles.
Considering that the subject
for this decals is quite specific, this is very
interesting set, and I can recomend it to anyone
interested in Hungarina AF MIG-29s.
Thanx again to Mr. Tóth Péter from TOFF
