Always wanted this one in my display case, it's Eduard older kit, but still good and a quick built.  A that orange brings some color to all the other camo painted planes.

Short build log with more pics here

Thanks for looking and criticism welcomed.

Very nice Waikong! Pit was nicely done as comes in the kit but your additions really topped it off. Keep up the great work.

Nice!  I have this one in the stash, glad to hear it's a nice build.   Which orange did you use?

Thanks for all the comments. I can't possible imagine myself doing what these guys do, even If I was qualified :)

John, I used Model Masters International Orange for the finish.
