The newest book from AirDOC is specifically devoted to the MiG-29 Fulcrum in German service. While most of the book covers the Fulcrum after German reunification, a chapter is devoted to service with the NVA (Nationale Volksarmee – East German People’s Army). The book is primarily a photo reference and is packed with an average of 4-5 crisp color photos per page. Mixed in with the photos are a number of color profile drawings, a number of which will doubtless appear on the upcoming decal sheets announced by AirDOC. Highlights of the book include:

• Color 4-view drawings with color references for both the Luftwaffe Norm 90J scheme and the original NVA green/brown tactical scheme.
• Fold-out 1/48 scale drawings of the MiG-29A (G) and MiG-29UB (GT), including drawings of the missiles, pylons, and drop tanks.
• 8 pages of detail photos covering the cockpit, landing gear, and engines.
• A two-page section with 5 photos of the specially painted 40th Anniversary bird from JG 73 “Steinhof”.
• Listing of individual aircraft by serial number, giving both the current Luftwaffe code numbers and the original NVA codes.

The chapter text is in English, with a summary in German at the end of the book. All photos have captions in both languages.


If you are interested in modeling the Fulcrum in German markings, this is all the reference you need. Highly Recommended!
