I'm in! Nice work so far. Which scheme are you going to realize?

Thanks Stefan .... I still have to make up my mind among the Czechoslovakian version (tan and olive green) and Egyptian (tan, brown and green) ,,,, I guess I'll choose the Egyptian.

Hi mates ,,, I'm about to paint the undersides and I have a doubt on the colour. As far as I know should be FS 36375. Eduard matches it to Gunze 325 , but FSM, IPMS Stockholm and Klaus matches it to 308. I've got 308 in my stash and looks rather good. But I haven't 325 for checking ...Any one can help me ?

I also started to build this kit but stoped because I am unsure how to deal with the missing wheel wells

Good start, Julian. Following.

Christinan ... in all pictures I've found , all undercarriage doors are closed when the aircraft is on the ground.

I can confirm the wheel bays on L-39s are closed when undercarriage is fully extended.
@Julian: Wish I could help, but I only used Gunze 308 as FS36375 on my Polish F-16C :(
Btw.: Who's Klaus?

Thanks Julkan and Lukasz. The cofusion arrised because of the CMK set which include a wheel well and doors for the main landing gear but none for the front wheel.

Thanks Christian & Łukasz . Łukasz ... David Klaus wrote a very comprehensive book on colours for modelling. This very one :
SCM Book: IPMS Color Cross-Reference Guide (IPMS Color Cross-Reference Guide)

Julian: The match via Ultimate Model Paint Guide says: H308 is FS36375, H325 is FS36440. Hope that helps.

Thx Julian for the info, but I see this book seems quite old ;)
