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