    gettng the cockpit tub done
    added some Eduard PE seatbelts, instruments are painted and drybrushed
    the Thai Sabres weren´t equipped with TACAN, so sanded/cut off the airscoop on the right rear fuselage and closed the hole with plastic sheet and filler

    kit and Siam Scale sheet didn´t include a usable red fuselage band decal, therefore painted

    For sure this painted tail band will look much better than a decal one, Reinhard @grimreaper
