Question JC Wings Mig-29 Tail construction material?

Hi all,

Quick one, what material are the vertical stabilizers on the JC wings mig-29 made from?

Metal or plastic?

My concern is that they appear to be molded completely vertical, if I purchase one I want to be able to bend them into their correct, outward angled, position. This is easier done with plastic obviously

Cheers,

Sorry, I don't know the answer. Remember it's a witty (sky guardians) mould. I was just thinking the other day how much I like the JCW Polish mig29 RIAT livery but how bad the model looks from the photos. In the world of diecast as far as I know so far there have been only two major MiG29 lines: corgi's and witty's. both are quite poor. I think unless you are absolutely married to some MiG29 livery that JCW has released that you wait for Hobbymaster to do the MiG29 properly maybe 6 months - 2 years down the line as I think there's a high likelihood that it's in their to do list.

A Google answer is..... "Plastic is warm feeling to the touch and metal is cool."

So if someone already has a JCW Mig-29....they could do the touch test and tell you

You need one of these, can also be used to count the rivets on calibre fencers

so that's what you got at home, eh? no, just wait a minute... that requires an actual model to be analysed. you, on the other hand, use these to count rivets:

Never did I anticipate such a response to this thread, but given that it appears they are metal, I may give it a pass and wait to see what HM do in the future

I'm guessing this is the first time anyone ever wanted MORE plastic on a diecast model

Cheers

well, looking at calibre wings latest viper offering, there IS a whole lot more plastic and lots of people applauding that effort... so you're probably in good company

Well, maybe still some way?:
what about trying to detach the vertical stabilizers (prying them while/or using hairdryer / heat gun) and glue them back in correct angle?
