The "Strizhi" or "Swifts" are one of the Russian Air Force's main aerobatic teams and currently fly six MiG-29 'Fulcrums' pooled from six MiG-29A single-seaters and two MiG-29UB two-seaters, which operate from the 237th Proskurov Guards aircraft demonstration centre at Kubinka Air Base. In October 1991 the team carried out its first display abroad, when it paid a visit to the Swedish Uppsala airbase. The tight six-aircraft formation carried out almost every aerobatic stunt: oblique loop, loop-the-loop, barrel roll, etc., and ended with a spectacular break-up of aircraft to various directions, the so-called "tulip" breakup, followed by a volley of flares, fired by fighters. The "Swifts" Aerobatic team flies around 50 displays per year. Its pilots have visited in excess of 28 foreign countries and the team traditionally participates in Tushino air parades and Zhukovsky air shows.

Please note: An optional display stand is available separately if you wish to display this model "in-flight".

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.

Witty's 1:72 scale MiG-29 is constructed almost entirely of diecast metal, with careful attention paid to even the smallest of details. This is a model with many movable parts, including a hinged canopy, deployable speed breaks and movable rudders with correctly replicated actuator mechanism. The landing gear is highly detailed, with rivets inside the gear doors, separately applied transparent landing lights, structural detail inside the wheel wells and a detailed splash fender. The auxiliary air inlet's louvers seamlessly blend with the upper fuselage. Fully armed with a 30mm cannon and three different missile types, this model is available as the single-seat A variant or two-seat B variant.
