Mig-29A 9-12 Soviet

45.7k Falkenwut  11 months ago

Name: Mig-29A 9-12
Type: Detailed Replica
Attempt #: 6
Falkenwut Generation Build: 7

As this is my favorite fighter from the Soviet Union, I present to you, my re-re-re-re-re-remake of the Mig-29, this time, the A model 9-12!

With this Beta 1.11 version out, I thought I'd try my hand at remaking my Highly detailed Mig-29, This time, comes with:
- Detailed, functional and VR-capable cockpit
- Functional RWR and Gear Gauges
- Function HUD and HUD repeater
- Detailed Air inlets
- Functional IR sensor
- Detailed Gear doors
- Moving engine nozzles
- Functional Custom Afterburner
- Personally made Air-to-Air Missiles
- Detailed Antennae

Though I still didn't nick all the little details on the bud and didn't reduce the part count as much as the original High-detailed one, at least it comes far better than I had originally hoped for!

It was a tough 1 and a half-weeks to make this, I hope you guys get to enjoy it, especially in VR!

As per the real Mig-29, the Airbrake only functional when Gears are up and the Centre Fuel tank has been jettisoned.

Credits goes were credit is due! Special thanks goes to:
- 11qazxc on Skipper's Simpleplanes Discord server for his help with the directional funkytrees
- @BiliBluewingsEngineer for the HUD
- @BombBoi1822 for the afterburner nozzles
- @lemoose for the automatic Leading Edge Slats
- @tomlin5412 for the Targetting pod system I used for the IR sensor

    @Amirabadi Popularity-wise? It's starting to rise, but this game is NOWHERE close to DCS. The planes in DCS have been meticulously researched to get the most realistic experience of the planes they offer.

    Here... A flying toaster with bacon missiles is just as logical 🤷

    @Amirabadi I just search online for what I can find. It's not always easy, but if the plane is popular, usually you'll find very very detailed blueprints.

    For this model particularly I was lucky to have the DCS model on standby to confirm specific details

    @parkrangerjerry Soviet is referring to the colour scheme. Soviet i.e. Soviet Union, not Russia(ish..)

    Also yes, United States did purchase Mig-29s, but that's a political can of worms...

    @Tang0five You seem to use the windows version, why not give it a spin? At least till the devs release an official version...

    @SyntheticL You are right. I gave it a basic star shape because i didn't want to add too much to the part count.

    I wish they would add ASCII characters to the new labels feature, it would save me A LOTTTTTT OF TIME...
