HAD Models (HungAeroDecals) is a new company, at least to me. Printed in Hungary, HAD Models brings us a sheet of stencils for the ubiquitous MiG-29. Although the sheet is small in size (6.5ʺ x 4.75ʺ) it is packed with decals; 136 to be exact. The decals are well printed, in register, and easy to read, even in 1/48 scale, with the aid of my Optivisor.

The decals comes with two foldouts that show the plane in profile from both sides with large call out numbers to aid in placing the many stencils on your model. The second sheet features the same clear placement guide for the top and bottom of the plane. Additionally, the second sheet provides placement instructions for the stencils that appear on the assorted missile rails your MiG might carry. Some color pictures are provided of an actual MiG in service with placement callouts on these as well.

This is a very extensive sheet and should be a nice addition to any MiG-29 a modeler would build. I know I have a couple on the shelf that could benefit from these. I would recommend setting aside several hours if one plans on using all of the stencils; there are a ton of detailed markings on the sheet. The sheet is also available in 1/72 scale as part number 72111.

Thanks to HAD Models for providing the review sample and to IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review it.
