Hi rufus74pz
Many thanks. One more question: Wouldn'd the 0.028pF make more sense as the anode to g1 cap (Miller cap)?

Hi
The soviet 1sh29b showes crossing plate curves in the area of the knees. See curves in my post #2097. My goal is to find a GENERIC approach to mimic this phenomenon in spice. To achieve that, I need further tubes showing this effect. Does anybody know other tubes with crossing plate curves? Thanks in advance, Adrian

Do you think that it is not "real" feature? Also, isn't the Cg1_a < 0.005 pF ? (проходная)

Yes for sure its a real phenomenon. The point is more, when I have traces from different tube types showing this „crossing effect“ then my generic approach will satisfy more or less all of this tubes (so, more generic than 1sh29b specific).

... and yes, I also identified the 0.005pF as the MillerCap. Quite HighFrequency capaple, this tiny tube!!

1sh29b model finished!
Hi artosalo
It took some time to get my 1sh29b spice model on a satisfying level  but now I'm happy with the result! As in every development, there still remains some improvement potential, e.g. the Ig1 raise at very low Va is still not addressed. However, I'm sure my 1sh29b model is currently the best approach worldwide . all the best, Adrian Code:
