Mig 29 AS Slovak Air Force Featured…

For the month of March 2012, Combat Aircraft Magazine is featuring the beautiful Mig 29 AS with digital camouflage from the Slovak Air Force. The issue features beautiful pictures and a must read article. In case you didn’t know, our ‘Popular’ block on our index page has been featuring the Academy 1:48 Mig-29 AS Slovak Air Force for quite sometime. The reason why the Academy Mig 29 AS is among the the other two featured builds, is because is the most searched model kit within the site and search engines from readers and visitors like you. So I thought that this magazine issue might be of your interest too. You can find the Combat Aircraft Magazine at your local news and magazines stand or buy it directly from them.
