Looks nice, but would prefer a decent 1/72 kit.

Agreed completely!

The KP one is crude and the Bilek one is best left to scratch builders with good resources.

I'd love to see Eduard take a shot at a Delfin in 1/72, it would look great sitting beside one of their L-39 Albatros kits

So it looks like it won't quite be ready for the August release date, but at least it is going to be released soon.

Just got my copy of the AMK Aero L-29 Delphin kit.

Love the first bullet in the 'Kit Features' portion of the box lid. I quote "The first injection moulded decent 1:48 Aero L-29 model"

Clearly a confident bunch at AMK !

These Profimodeller probes look good. I've had a close look at my kit and the two things that stand out are the shape around the jet exhaust which should be relatively easy to fix and the fact that they have totally omitted the rudder pedals (ignore the fictitious "wedges"). When I get time I'll check out the rest of it.
