Built out of the kit plus Eduard's 48328 detail set, Aces II 4144 Ejection Seat and Reskit RS 48-002 wheels set. Decals from the kit and home printed. Painted with Mr.Hobby and weathered with artist oils. The kit shows its age, with some fit problems in the fuselage but when it's resolved, all the rest goes quite right. Apart from the details set mentioned before, I did some scratch building in the wheel wells area, some panel rescribing & riveting and redo the canon. The poster put on the ladder back door was a personal touch!
