MiG-29 Fulcrum

MiG-29 1:64

Scale: 1:64 (?)
Make: Maisto TailWinds
Model #: N/A
Year: 2007
Name: MiG-29 Fulcrum
Description: Camouflage

The MiG-29 (NATO reporting name “Fulcrum”) remains in use by the Russian Air Force and many others to this day in the air superiority role. India reportedly has the fourth largest fleet in the world with 63 in service. I saw these in action at Aero India 2007, as well as the previous Aero India, where a MiG-29 M2 unexpectedly used thrust-vectoring to carry out the “sky-shattering” Cobra Manoeuvre, typically performed by the Sukhois at airshows. The 2007 Aero India had MiG-29 OVTs climbing up vertically, stopping in mid-air, falling out of the sky, and generally putting American aircraft to so much shame it wasn’t even funny.
