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

^ 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...

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

One of the long term builds on my top shelf is a RAF Mig-29... The idea was what if instead of a special relationship with america during WW2 a relationship had developed with russia... Fast forward a few years and the Tornado ADV never happened....

I got as far as the cockpit and other builds got in the way...

Yes it was, yes it can carry bombs and other ordnance.  The MiG-29 replaced the MiG-23 and MiG-27 in addition to the Su-17/22/ Fitter.  The aircraft is capable of carrying variety of air to ground munitions/stores to include nuclear free fall bombs, rockets, and precision guided air to surface weapons.  These weapons use stores pylons that are different in shape from those used for air to air weapons.

It also depends upon how you define 'bomb truck' since often ground attack is carried out using missiles rather then conventional bombs.

Essentially the equivalent of the F-16 is what I'm enquiring about but the above is enough to validate the concept.

One word comprehensive review of the Great Wall Hobby MiG-29 9-13:  Jawdrop.

OK, that being put forth one look through of the kit made it pretty clear I'd like to build it up clean save for a centerline pod.  Methinks a combination fuel/recce pod would serve well enough.   


(Yes, there is another kit in Ye Olde Stash awaiting its stores.)

Cool.

Alternatively, what if Russia and Australia did a deal whereby Russia paid for some of its debt/beef/wheat imports using MiGs etc (just as they did/tried with other areas).  Maybe even have the MiG-29s as a dedicated aggressor unit?

That makes me wonder what kind of western re-engining you could do on a Fulcrum.

Well, all are physically smaller than the RD-33 so could (with some fancy engineering) be fitted to a MiG-29.
