In Germany, a number of ex-East German MiG-29s remain in service with the unified Luftwaffe. The East German MiGs were Russian export models and thus are less capable than their Russian counterparts. For example, the engines were downgraded to 90 percent maximum power. The radar system is less powerful, with detection range reduced to about 40km. Even so, these MiG-29s have proven themselves more than capable on practice sorties against F-16 Falcons, defeating them with ease. The color scheme was only used for one flight. This was the last official flight of the East Germany Air Force on September 27, 1990. This special painted aircraft was named die Traditionsmaschine (the Traditional Aircraft).

Mikoyan MiG-29 Fulcrum-A

Designed to help the Soviet Union attain air superiority, the MiG-29 fighter was first flown on October 6th, 1977. The MiG-29, known as the "Fulcrum," has a high-mounted bubble canopy and twin jet engines with diagonal-shaped air intakes and large exhausts. Its tapered, swept-back wings and boom-mounted tail fins give it its classic look. Armed with medium and short-range missiles and unguided weapons for ground and sea-surface targets, the MiG-29's sight is a helmet-mounted system—the pilot chooses his targets by looking at them. Even today the Fulcrum remains a potent adversary, and will remain in service for at least another decade.

Corgi's 1:72 scale MiG-29 is constructed almost entirely of diecast metal with only the smallest amount of plastic used. The canopy is configurable and can be displayed in the open position for easy viewing of the pilot figure and cockpit interior. The robust metal landing gear with attached gear doors is easy to install for ground display. Details such as hydraulic lines and wing construction are visible inside the wheel wells.
