Hello!
Long time not building any aircraft, so I'm starting this interesting aircraft, away from my usual WW2 planes
It will be OOB and with the three-colored Vietnam scheme:

Starting with the cockpit:





Cheers!

Great choice, Venelin. Looking forward to see the SAE camouflage. I am sure it will look great.

Venelin,
Looking forward to following your A-27B build. Been wanting to do a Dragonfly for some time, but just never seem to get around to it.

I will use Quickboost seats, which are much better than the kit ones. Soon will proceed with this build (sorry for the delay), along with the Zvezda Bf 109







Cheers!

Hi Venelin

The box art depicts 2 of my favourite Vietnam planes.

Going to follow this build log for sure - got my eye on one of these at the LHS.

Regards,
Kobus

Very cute plane, you will not regret and quality is very good. Of course the resin seats will make much difference
(I have to finish the other "bird" though...)

I soon will proceed with this aircraft also, but I want to add some additional goodies.
So my question is-will be that LAU-3/A launcher from Eduard, accurate for the A-37B? I'm not very familiar with the different type of launchers.

LAU-3/A

Thanks!
