This time hopefully it gets stocked over here as the first release didn't even make it to these shores.

You lucked out not getting the initial release of the Mig-29 9-12 late. There was a shape error in the keel between the two engine nacelles, but you could hide it with the big centerline external fuel tank. Great Wall has corrected this on later moldings of the 9-12 late and also on the 9-13 kit. I'm really impressed with GWH's Mig-29 9-13 kit. I wound up getting it from a shop here in California that was selling on EBay for $60 with free shipping.

I have the 9-13 kit, but I'll replace the rockets with Eduard's really nice Brassin Russian rockets. Maybe the Brassin wheels also.

Keep in mind it's not the same version as their first MiG-29 9-12. There were some differences at least in size of rudders and presence of the vertical fins under the tailplane. In "late 9-12" rudder were enlarged and fins removed. This makes this boxing inapropriate for some painting options (Poland for example).

Thank you Michal, I was not aware of that I'll bear that in mind.

I'll still get one and keep my eyes peeled for a late version at shows or hope for a release.
