  1. Now, that is an aircraft (nor nationality) we don´t see too often. Cool shark paint job.

  2. Another unique build, Mr. King….always a treat to view your work.

  3. Nice work. That isn’t the easiest kit to start with. Fine job.

  4. The L-39 is one smart looking plane. Besides doing operational schemes, it could also become quite a canvas with all the colorful civvie versions! Did not know this one existed in 1/48!

  5. Nice work! Agree with Josh – the L-39 is just a nicely shaped aircraft. I’m not a huge fan of “display” paint schemes as they seem to take away from what I consider the natural beauty of an airplane, but this one is more understated than some and you executed it well! As others have mentioned, I’m enjoying seeing your work!

  6. Lloyd,
    Great job on this. I’m doing one of these right now. I won’t say it is the kit from hell but maybe just purgatory. I hope mine turns out half as good as yours.
