Hi all.

This is the 3rd completed one for the year. It's the Weekend edition of the Eduard 1/48 L-29 Delfin which is the AMK kit in disguise. The markings are one of the options in the box and I can assure that all 184 decals that make up the tiger stripes are present, count 'em! It was bare plastic a week and a half ago so approximately 10 days to complete it. Four of those were dedicated to decaling. The paint is Mr Color #4 yellow. The changes I made are the Master pitot probes and the Quickboost seats. I also replaced the braces behind the front seat with wire. I kept the canopy closed as the open canopy would ruin the simple lines of the airframe. So, interesting airframe...no. Interesting decals scheme...yes. Would I recommend the kit...yes, but a different scheme.

Hope you like it.
Mick

Nice model.

I have just finished the same myself but have had to do a few repairs after i had a paint rack fall over and land on the model.

How sick was i?

Wow! That's a stunner. I admire your patience with all those tiger stripe decals! The result though is worth the effort.

Thanks. Four session of about two hours each and all of the decals were on.  It stands out in the cabinet!

Thanks Djordje. Although it is a simple airframe shape, the tiger stripes work well with it.

Hi Mick, fits in with what I like, either loud and bright, BUT clean, or operational and well weathered...

Well done again...

 

Cheers
