Your camoflage looks nice, and your modifications came out really well.  I always liked the Tucano, and your build looks great.  How long did it take for you to complete this kit?

Really nice job Ronald! I was fortunate to see the Brazilian Air Force Demo team perform several years ago with the bright red Tucanos. I was amazed at the performance of these aircraft. They shared the show with the Blue Angels and put on an equally exciting performance.

Yours looks great in camo!
