Tupolev Tu-134AK NVA/LSKZvezda 1/144

This Tu-134AK comes from the kit from with etchparts from ExtraTech and decals from Revaro. The construction went quite well, as a small but not so obvious highlight was the installation of a homemade cockpit. It was painted with the colors of Vallejo. In order to build the government machine of the former GDR, I used the decals of Revaro. The very thin carrier film and probably also the use of decal setter caused the red stripes along the body to curl up and become unusable. Good advice was expensive. Therefore, I decided to paint the strips by masking myself. The type designation was printed out on the basis of a scan and applied appropriately.
