Below are shots of the 1st Prototype I built for Topgun Aircraft in 1996/97
(Photos taken by My Wingman, Ben Ndubuisi)
Topgun MiG-29 all composite Prototype at Toledo Show 1997
Shot of the FOD doors, I think this shot looks real. Check the scale nose gear with the mud guard.
Can you spot the rear view morrors in this one? And the next one, too?
Notice the pilot is Maj. Steve Austinoff. He was in the MiG-29 I lost at Superman in 1996. I found
every thing in the cockpit except his head and arms. BUT............., we had the technoligy to rebuild him. Hence his head,hands
and one arm are not painted.
I made this scale nose gear, complete with mud guard.
You can see the main gear doors in this view.
Gear door Cylinder in the upper left, and the custom bend in the pipe adapter to help clear the nose
gear. Note the location of the header tank. It's centered on the carb.
The FFIR (Forward Facing Infra Red) and pitot are evident in this view.

NEW---- MiG-29 Construction pictures!
I am currently working on a replacement to be Turbine powered. I have all the fiberglass composite parts completed and am
working on the scale landing gear.
