THIS MODEL INCLUDES A DISLPAY STAND
1:72 Scale Metal Die-Cast - Mikoyan Mig 29AS – Length: 9" Wingspan: 6.5”
This model has is a single seater and includes one pilot figure. It includes 6 missiles. It also includes a detailed landing gear as well as the cover of the wheel wells to give the appearance of in-flight.
This is a limited edition model with a total of 600 pieces. A card similar to a credit card is included which displays the particular number (of the pieces produced) of the model.
Some assembly is required to place the landing gear and/or wheel well covers in place, as well as the weapons on the wings and fuselage. This is quite simple, but one needs to be very careful and patient.
The cockpit canopy can open and close to allow for placement of the pilot figurine, however, one also needs to be very careful when moving the canopy as it is very fragile and the movement is barely enough to insert the pilot in place.
This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. If you have small kids that like to play with your models, save yourself some frustration (and money) and wait till later to get a model like this one. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.
The box measures 10 inches by 10 inches by 3.5 inches.
