Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-29 Ideas and Inspiration
« on: December 29, 2011, 03:05:23 AM »
Hi folks,

A thread dedicated to your Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-29 ideas and inspiration.

To start off, how about a crude single engined MiG-29?



Regards,

Greg

The Super Fulcrum was to the Fulcrum what the Super Hornet was to the Hornet (conventional MiG included for comparison):



And although produced, the single seat version was no where near as useful or as popular:

Certainly looks like a natural evolution of the type.

And here's the head-on view of that!



Basically the two intakes drawn together. The intake area is somewhere between a single and both normal inlets, to allow for increased need for air for the more powerful engine.

EDIT: Regarding the engine:
How about a D30F-6 from a MiG-31 Foxhound? 93 kN dry and 153 kN reheated vs. 100 kN dry and 162 kN reheated from two RD-33s in the normal MiG-29

Could there be a side view of it?

^ Unless Greg did one, there isn't. I didn't do one as I though it wouldn't be all that much different in the side view.

It's alright, it is not that important.

Allow me to present here the Mikoyan MiG-29RV (NATO: "Fulcrum-Q"). The text of the advertisement is supposed to read: "It is our greatest asset for the future, and yet none of our pilots can fly it" but I'm told I made a few Russian mistakes...

Puts thinking cap on, looks at Academy kit in the basement, and thinks misshapen model kits are a great from-the-factory base for versions which never were..... ;D

I remember seeing a "HIMAT" Mig-29 at the old site, But I can't find it anywhere. East german markings... any help out there?

Ogival main wings similar in planform to the Su-27 prototype.  Wasn't that called the T-10 or something?    "Prototype'' styled remaining flying surfaces.


Central American/South American jungle camouflage.

Red/White checkerboard tail, red spine RAF  (Whichever squadron it was that flew the Lightning in those markings)

Correct - T-10:



Would look interesting on the MiG-29
