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!
