    Well , this is the new tool Airfix kit built as a Persian fighter . Freehand painting and a pavla seat to enhance the cockpit detail . Markings are aftermarket ( Hi-Line decals )

    Dionyssis, it seems you have a real talent for camo painting, the Dora and Gustav you build were also wonderfully finished. The soft camo on this in 1/72 is exquisite; I think it’s difficult to pull off the illusion of tonal variance in 1/72 that makes such a small model seem real rather than toy – but you have done that. I also like the canopy – crystal clear and shows off that seat.

    Thank you David ! It is a nice little model and the iranian camo very interesting and different from the usual bare metal

    Well, for my money this is a brilliant ‘little’ build. Really delicately and artfully done.

    Excellent! Love the scheme as well, and the paint work is fantastic.
