Nice work so far👍
Great effort paying off, I'm in!
Pop corn ready
Nice. It look like you have to use a lot of putty. How good or bad is the kit?
Not good. Poor fit, poor accuracy, poor details, very wide panel lines, errors, lacks... A lot of work.
Excellent 👌 paint work
Looking great 🙂

Watching this with great interest: both for the 1/72 Learjet 35 itself, and for the choice of the subject - a less "celebrated" participant of the Malvinas/Falklands war... 👍 👍
Not often you can see Mach2 build. Following.
Hi, nice choice really and challenging subject ..
Though i would have rather placed a handkerchief instead of toilet paper there, when it is about Mach2 🙂

Oleg, yes, it's a real loadout, but only for the air shows - all missiles have blue stripes, so they are "dummy". 😁 In fact my inspiration were photos of this particular SHAR from 2001 air shows.
Thanks for answer Aleksander!

Looking good! How was the fit?
Well, the fit wasn't what I expected from 2012 Hasegawa kit. I thought it would be easy and fun build, but it wasn't. I have been struggling with it for almost a year because I lacked patience (for comparison - Modelsvit's Mirage IIIEA kit I have built in 3 weeks straight out of the box and the effect is much better). Furthermore - the model is prepared only for the "in flight" configuration - I had to buy resin open nozzles and had a lot of effort to close the air brake and make the canopy in the open position. In fact, I don't know if this kit is worth the money (over 30 EUR).
Thank you Aleksander, I am in for a bumpy ride with mine...
A great looking trio
Wow that is really awesome👍!!!
All three of them looking perfect! Congrats to this beautiful collection 👍!
Spot on subtle paint work! And I like all the aircraft shown here. 👍

An interesting project on the Falklands war ... very nice job well done! 🙂
Daniel, the Italeri kit is basic and has some lacks and issues, but it's quite pleasant to build. Most modifications are from Eduard's PE sets. I've only added some wires, pipes and air scoops, drilled some holes and made interior's ceiling (not visible on those photos). There is "work in progress" album in this project, where my modifications are visible.
Oh, I've almost forgot - tail rotor blades are wrong direction in this kit! They are counterclockwise, should be clockwise. It's not very hard to correct.
Lovely, nevermind the rotor😉
Rotor in mine is correct, but in box you get incorrect.

I got this the other day. I ordered it on the 8th Of Dec. Took longer to get the kit than the war lasted. LOL
Watching with interest.
Nice interiors... Following.
Got one or five of these in 72/48 very nice kits(bit of a wessex nut).

Alex,the Airfix FA2 seems a good kit.I built the Italeri years ago and was not impressed the resin gun pods are a must as any kits cannot seem to capture them.
Very good details.
