Dolfin in a tigers suit – 1/48 Eduard L-29 Delfin, Czech Air Force

Hi all.

This one is the 3rd completed one for the year. It’s the Weekend edition of the Eduard 1/48 L-29 Delfin which is the AMK kit in disguise. The markings are one of the options in the box and I can assure that all 184 decals that make up the tiger stripes are present, count ’em! It was bare plastic a week and a half ago so approximately 10 days to complete it. Four of those were dedicated to decaling. The paint is Mr Color #4 yellow. The changes I made are the Master pitot probes and the Quickboost seats. I also replaced the braces behind the front seat with wire. I kept the canopy closed as the open canopy would ruin the simple lines of the airframe. So, interesting airframe…no. Interesting decals scheme…yes. Would I recommend the kit…yes, but a different scheme.

Hope you like it.

  1. Very nice. Fast build. It takes me that long just to choose a cockpit colour

  2. Yellow is a tough color, and Kudo’s on your excellent decal work! All an all a real attention getter that really deserves it! Nice work.

  3. That’s a lot of decals! And you know what? They are beautifully applied because it looks painted to my eye. This is a pretty airplane with a very eye catching scheme. Well done!

  4. This is a fantastic job, Michael. Excellently put together and painted and, of course meticulously recalled.
    All the best!

  5. It really is a nice kit, and you have certainly made the most of it with this model.

  6. A real stunner! And holy mackerel, that’s fast! I’m with George – I’d still be deciding which scheme to use…

  7. Wow, now that’s colorful. Well done, especially with all those decals you had to apply.

  8. Michael, that is an amazing paint scheme. You did a superb job.

    Cheers,

    Scott
