    Jetlegend Mig 29 Fulcrum

    Well it finally arrived yesterday straight from the factory, number 006 Jetlegend Mig 29 ARF and what a glorious example of aircraft moulding, complete with a set of wonderfully engineered retracts that are just outstanding to look at and fondle (much to my wife’s dismay).

    Well when faced with such a shiny new box of β€œThrill” what was a bloke to do?? Well you get a couple of mates around, taste a couple of beers, unpack her and start bolting it together (for a bit more fondling – sorry sweetie).

    Luckily the factory installed the gear doors (all 9 of them) and the LG so it was not long till she stood there, resplendent in all her glory.
    Have posted pics (I hope anyway) and will post more as the build comes along over the next 4 weeks or so.

    RE: Jetlegend Mig 29 Fulcrum

    Very nice Bart. I'm in the process of waiting for the JL SU27 Flanker. Interesting how they have done the tailpipe. I wonder how much the power will be reduced with that large a split ?

    They have kept the leg diameter quite small which at first looks odd but when you think about it thes gas velocity will be kept higher. Guess you could argue that it's a bit like Wren's "Divergence" design when you take the size of the primary chamber into account. I will let you know how the 160 handles it when I strike the match.

    Just a simple drop made by the same people called "Fusions" mixed with a hint of lime, helps me keep in touch with my feminine side.....but boy they do go down well on a hot afternoon.

    RE: Jetlegend Mig 29 Fulcrum

    Very nice indeed. We have the UK JL agent in our club and we are just waiting for him to get his finger out and get one up to the field.
    What is the paintwork like? It has been a bit variable on some of the JL models but the rest of the construction has usually been very good. We have a lot of JL models at our club.

    Paint is not too bad, this is my 4th JL but the second that was painted. From 2 ft back it looks fantastic, but when you look real close there are obviously imperfections, however I can promise you 2 things, 1 - Its a hell of a lot better that I could ever do, 2 - At 300 kph who the hell cares.......

    You can just see the tanks in the 7th pic of the second post. They are blow moulded plastic and were pre-installed in the front section and all pre plumbed, my drug dealer (aka Jetlegend rep) informs me that they are 1.8 lts each. The tank neck has a screw on cap where the main line goes through so it is easy to remove the clunk to check. I will get some better shots of this soon when I start building.

    No OVT at this stage but the tails cones remove real easy if you wanted to adapt after market units.

    RE: Jetlegend Mig 29 Fulcrum

    awesome thanks amigo. i saw that pix but assumed that was a UAT of some sort. vent nipple looks undersized from the photo.

    and at 2ft and 300Kph who cares? it looks like a Mig to me.

    We must have about 15 JL models in our club. L39's are two a penny, but F16's, F4's, F18's F15's, F22's and F20's have all flown well. Some people have had a few building issues with the early ones but we have seen no airframes failures that were not owner induced.

    Having now built most of these companys models bar 'der jet' my opinion is that all of these ARF's can be built into great models. Some do require more work than others..................I now use a pin hole camera to check the internal wing structures and have not found a problem yet with the new generation of models coming from SM, JL and FB.

    RE: Jetlegend Mig 29 Fulcrum

    Hi,
    Yes I received one too for a customer - think I'm going for one with a custom paint job as I'm not keen on the factory scheme!

    It's so nice and Mr Yang at JL was very pleased with its flight performance.

    Just a note for you guys thinking about the SU-27 - I received one of these too and in my opinion it looked better than the MIG! However, please note that the SU is beeing supplied as a TWIN airframe with possible turbine choices such as Wren 70, SS, P70, Merlin 90 etc...

    Super airframes from JL these days...

    Hi Jeff,
    So you did get your finger out

    Jeff
    So you did get your finger out
    Are you bringing it to Elvington? (actually that could be a bad idea with the number of jets I have at the moment. SWMBO will have my guts for garters if I bring another one home0.[]
    I agree about the colour scheme though. See youi next weekend if we don't have snow.
    Cheers
    John
