I'm always glad to see Polish markings in the kit however this one needs some clarification. Straight from the box you can build actualy the CS-102 which was based on MIG-15 and this is accurate for the Finnish planes. For the Polish ones, the SBLiM's-2, you will need to rework the rear fuselage and armament, as these were based on MIG's-15bis - had the "late" style bigger airbrakes and some differences with the armament (I'm not quite sure now without looking into he reference books) which were two 20mm machine guns. Just be cautious if you decide to use Polish decals and want to be 100% accurate with the history.
