Kit : Learjet 35 Brand : Stransky Scale : 1/144 Decals : Kit Decals I picked this little kit up in Telford 2018. The minute I saw it I just know I had to get it and build it in the Finnish Air Force colours. The kit is not bad for the scale and size. I just found some of the landing gear and gear doors a little thick, but it’s down to the limits of injection molding. I could have used the parts to scratch build my own parts, but I didn’t. I did change and correct some parts of the kit. The first thing I done was to drill out the cabin windows. That was simple because they were molded into the inside. Then I filled some of the panel lines as they are filled on the real aircraft. The tail cone had to be changed, because the Finnish aircraft have a different tail cone, again this was simple. Just remove some plastic from the tail area and replace it with a bit of sprue. The real aircraft has a lot of reinforcing and extra aerials. I added these with some plastic card. I mix some Tamiya paints to get the two greens as I could not find the correct colours, the grey is Tamiya XF-80. To see the build, click on the link. Link to Build I would like to thank Antti for his help. If I was to build this kit again, I would open the cabin door. Thank you for looking Ken
