    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 definitely is possible to do it. There are a fair number of shops selling jet planes in 1/300, 1/600 or 1/700 scale, which are the most popular scales for them. These would also give you an idea of prizes for printing them.

    Rescaling one of the existing models to 1/500 would not be much of a problem. However, as far as I can see, nobody offers a Mig-29 at the moment.

    Here is a model of the Mig-35 project, which is derived from the Fulcrum. Maybe you try to contact the designer?

    Thanks for the tip! I'll send the designer a message. :)
