Following the glorious success of the Motherlands forces in 1985, the Air Force of the Peoples Democratic Republic of Great Britain took a step forward in receiving Mig-29s into squadron service in 1995 as part of the Soviet Europe Defence Pact.

In recent years select squadrons of the GBAF have served in South-East Asia in the ongoing struggle against American imperialist aggression, wearing a new camouflage scheme specially developed for the role.

Lend me your eyesight Nick ! Great job

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.


Great job Nick, the camo scheme looks suitably "Socialist" if you know what I mean.

Love the camo job, :wub:  it has given me an inspiration for an upcoming Sci-Fi project.

Comrade Nick,

Is this triumph of the Socialist workers carrier-capable?

Unfortuantely for the British Republic most of the Royal Navy and RAF ran away to America and Canada like the cowardly dogs they are, taking with them as much of the British Army as they could.
This left the Soviet Union with the need to replace the ships at great expense to the British people but rest assured, there will be a carrier or two in the British Peoples Navy by 1995. For commonality Mig-29Ks are likely to be the main naval strike aircraft.

This aircraft was inspired by the alternative ending to General Sir John Hacketts' The Untold Story, his sequel to the bestselling The Third World War.
The paint scheme was Olive Green (Tamiya spraycan) with squiggles of Humbrol 29 and 30 (Matt Dark Earth and Matt Dark Green).
The serial number was chosen to answer any really daft questions :P .

Great job on the paint scheme on such a small scale.  And the idea is real interesting too :)  
Man, we should have cloned twenties. Jackson wouldn't have given a poo-poo.
