The MiG-29 "Fulcrum" ("Tochka Opori" in Russian)
was designed and built to be a single-seat supersonic, all-weather, air
superiority fighter by the Mikoyan Design Bureau in Russia(USSR).
The first operational unit was designated in August 1983, at Kubinka Air
Base, near Moscow. Today, MiG-29 is producted by MAPO, the Moscow Aircraft
Production Organization. MiG-29 is used by Russian Air Forces and also
in Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovak, India, Iran, Syria, and
Malaysia. MiG-29 has powerful engines , low wing loading and good maneuverability.
This paper aircraft model of MiG-29 has the similar swept back wing shape

How to manufacture your MiG-29
Download the drawing and print it on thick paper. (Refer to Material and Instruments.) Pdf version is more fine drawing. Set up your printer for thick paper.
Cut on solid lines. (Don't forget the line between the wing and cockpit!)
Start with the body of the jet. Fold up as dash and dot line " _ . _ . _" , the line consealed in fold or located inside the corner as result, and fold down as dash line " - - - - " . Cockpit is surrounded partly in the body. After folding, open and cover back side of jet in paste or glue and re-fold.
Vertical tail plane is inclined out slightly from vertical line. Paste horizontal tail plane under vertical tailfin as thinly printed engine marker.
Attach wings to top of jet body. Fold nose-piece (shaped like a propeller) over nose of jet and attach with glue to jet. Cut out the catapulting hook. No balance weight is needed.
Wait for glue or paste to dry.
Bend down wings slightly as a bow shape to make camber. Dihedral angle of main wings is zero degree. Form washout (decrease angle of incidense at wing tip) at the tip of main wings to avoid tip stall and to incrase stability. Spray paint thinly if fly outdoor. Fly MiG-29 as "How To Fly".
