Thanks! I've always wanted to refurbish this model as it means something to me. I will update progress and post any aftermarket once acquired.

I have this kit in my stash so I will follow this project with interest. Good luck. 🙂

Thank you Marko, I decided to invest in refurbishing this 17 years old piece of childhood memory : )

Good luck with your model as well ... it's a very nice model.
If you want to build authentic OOB using the included 'Red 08' please notice that the paint scheme of this bird is no more 3-tone camo as in instructions; it's changed to overall light blue (AKAN 73035) with green dielectric panels (AKAN 73060). And the shark mouth decals are now displayed on both sides of plane (it was on one side only) - Reference: Owner of http://www.lindenhillimports.com site

I'm going to give it the latest paint and decals schema.

I'll watch this project als i Love The Flanker. Is The Metal Landung gear clean and easy to apply?
4. August 2015, 19:40
Yes, Boynes. It's really easy to assemble and does require minimal care before assembling. I'll post more images once landing gear is primed and painted.

After trying metal landing gear I believe now it's a good idea to get one for 1/48 or 1/32 model.

Thanks mate!
I've moved for business and left the model behind, unfortunately there won't be progress for some time on this project.

Hello Cortex. Yea I took a few years when I kind of lost interest and lost motivation, but about a year 1/2 ago. I retired so now I have time to work on it and when I need a break I can take it. I always hated having to squeeze the hobby in on the week ends. Hope it works out for you. Travis
