I am interested in seeing if it's possible to make some 1:500 scale models of the Russian MiG-29 Fulcrum.

I have already been told that the landing gear can be a problem in such a small scale, but i am willing to sacrifice that for something like this:

Also, is it possible to get them printed in colour, or can they only be printed blank?

If it is possible, what material would it be, and what would a possible trial batch cost?

It's possible to have it printed in color, but it would be ugly at that scale.

I can produce this model at that scale for printing in FUD for $25 if I can retain the IP rights to the model. If you would like to buy the IP right as well, then I would charge $150. Some of my previous 3D art can be seen here: http://patternsforcnc.com

I can make a very accurate model for this as blueprints are available that show the cross sections of the fuselage. http://www.the-blueprints.com/blueprints/modernplanes/mikoya n-gurevich-mig/28234/view/mikoyan_gurevich_mig_29/






It always was. It always was because somethingness cannot spawn from nothingness. And in the was of the past there is the forever of the now. Only now. Only now and nothing new, for anything new would add to the infinite, yet there can only be one infinite. Only one. The universe is only becoming something new in the delusion of our minds. This delusion that makes life worth living in our perceived universe becoming.

Only $25? I'll send you a PM.
