Another kit built in a 24-hour Group Build on another forum. It's the classic 70s kit from Airfix, and went together with no real issues except for a poor-fitting canopy. I added some simple seat harnesses, re-scribed the kit (there weren't too many panel lines anyway) and made my own decals for the Finnish scheme. With a bit of extra time I'd probably have done a bit more in the cockpit, but overall I was fairly pleased with the outcome. This is one of those subjects that I'd like to do in 1/48, and there are so many colorful schemes for it.

That's really very nice, Mike. I've been wanting to get a kit of this aircraft to do in IAF colors. Another sweet build you've got.
