MiG-42 from Jetfighter Full Burn

Working on something....  will involve a 1:72 MiG-29S, a knife and some glue to make a MiG-29 delta wing that looks more like this video game version of the next-gen MiG than what the eventual prototype looked like.

Need to tidy up a few lines, but here's how I did trying to match their computer rendering by putting a MiG-29S 1:72 model under the knife.   

Looks like their vertical tail is closer together and the double-delta starts a little further back.  That would have been pretty hard to match exactly since the MiG-29 'Centroplan' is so integral, it would have ended up a triple-delta to match their wing shape.

Very nice! Good call on retaining the original MiG-29 tails - the CG ones are nasty!
