First 'stop' .... Pavla seats are far too wide for the kit bathtub. It's not possible to trim them enoug to fit inside ... So I'll use the kit seats , which are also too wide, but no so much taht can't be trimmed to fit.
Cockpit decals from the kit. Very good and accurate, but not por a C but for ZA. Not really a problem as the kit has enough parts to make a ZA.Decals reacted very well to Micro-Sol. Interior Tamiya XF53
Finished instrument panels. Dials were painted with Humbrol Clear Fix and I must say I'm very happy with the result. Ejection handles have been made from red electric wire. Some weathering went on.... Seats Tamiya XF53 and Gunze H421
Stefan Schneider I'm in! Nice work so far. Which scheme are you going to realize?

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

Łukasz Gliński 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?

Christian Lehmann 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.
