I bought this on eBay a while ago, unfortunately one of the main gear legs was broken and the lower part of it was missing and the nose wheel leg was also AWOL. So I'm going to build this one in flight which means I'm going to have to make some pilots :unsure: Should be interesting.

Czechoslovakia operated nine S-92 fighters and three CS-92 fighter trainers, these equipped the 5th Fighter Flight 1948 - 1951.

For some reason I've always prefered the Czechslovakian scheme on this machine but was unaware they operated a two-seat version.

Neither did I until I got this kit, you can build it single or two seat so I did some research and decided to do the trainer. Finding out they only had three of them may explain why their existence it's not well known.

The fitting, filling and sanding of the main gear doors is done at last and they are now ready for scribing. Eduard never intended this kit to be wheels up so there was a lot of cutting and reshaping needed.

Cheers! :)

The pilots are finished and strapped into their cockpit which is now glued inside the assembled fuselage. I added a little flesh to their bones (wire ;) ) with repeated applications of Mr. Surfacer. Because the cockpit is so shallow I couldn't proportion their legs properly and to be honest you can hardly see anything in the cockpit anyway.
