  1. I really like what you've done with this - looks nicely weathered and faded. I've got the 1/72 version in my stash, and recently it's been poking it's head up demanding attention! Only so many hours in the day...

  2. Looks like the Pakistanis wanted an F-16 mated to a Fantan.

    Nice work on this!

  3. Nicely done. It does look like a hybrid of different designs.

  4. Hi. How can i get this model?
