The kit includes 6 resin pylons, 2 humps and 2 optional extra mounting brackets.  Detailed launching mechanisms are included on the undersides of all of the pylons.
Resin casting is of a very high q
uality and all the detail is very well done with no air bubbles.  This new resin set from Zactomodels includes 3 differet types of pylons which includes:

  • APU-470 pylons 2 pylons included.  These pylons for the Alamo missile are carried on the inboard stations.

  • APU-73 pylons  2 pylons included.  These pylons for the Archer missile are carried on either of the two outboard stations.  

  • APU-60 pylons  2 pylons included.  These pylons for the Archer missile are carried on either of the two outboard stations.

There is one page of instructions with line drawings that will explain everything you need to install these correctly.  The line drawings are done to scale and can be used as a template to drill the holes on the wings for these weapons pylons.  The instructions are well laid out and easy to follow.

The detailing on these mi9sile pylons is up to the usual high standards we enjoy from ZactomodelsThe MiG-29 is capable of carrying several different combinations of missiles.  Check your references for the particular plane you are building.
If you don't want all these pylons, then the APU-60 and APU-73 can be purchased separately from
Zactomodels.
