KPM4815 -- the exact airframe I flew with Air Combat USA -- guess I know which markings I'll be building.

Was that the operation run by an ex F-14 and 18 pilot?

 

I ran into them during flight training in '93.

I'm not sure what most of the guys who ran that organization flew previously, but all but one or two of them were ex-USN & USAF pilots, and most flew fighters, I believe.  The guy I flew with was only one or two who had not previously been a military pilot.  I'm ex-USAF myself, so felt right at home there.

The picture above with the SIAT and the O-2 is great, since I flew in both of them.  I've never seen a picture like that before. I'll definitely have both of my models displayed together.

Pro čtvrtkaře je určitě potěšitelná zpráva , že tento model byl v 3D modelaci upraven také do měřítka 1/48 a tento model včetně TP – turbo verze právě dokončujeme. Model 1/48 uvedeme do prodeje koncem měsíce října , takže tyto modely budou v listopadu v prodeji u všech dobrých prodejců a také na našem firemním E-shopu spolu s dalšími novinkami obou našich firem.

 

Googled:

"(...) For Thursday, the news is certainly gratifying that this model was also adjusted to 1/48 scale in 3D modeling and we are currently finishing this model, including the TP - turbo version. We will launch the 1/48 model at the end of October, so these models will be on sale at all good sellers in November and also on our corporate E-shop, along with other news from both our companies."

I read that one of the boxings was supposed to include Royal Thai Air Force decals, but I haven't seen anything official.

Hope so, so I don't have to wait for aftermarket decals. :pray:

I got it, rather rude kit, panel lines like very early Matchbox attempts, canopy very good. Decals: carrier film (auch Lack gennannt) and color print (Bildmotiv) out of register.  Will wait for the SH offering.
