Everything I need: some reference material, some replacement decals, some pretty old instructions in Czech, and old tech...

Love the pic #37. Really brave choice for a return to the hobby, though I love these vintage kits. You'd better pick the new Airfix Fresco to enjoy the building next time 😉

Thanks Lukasz. My first kit was that Lindberg Do 335. Not a great kit but I was doing well with it and then disaster struck when the flat varnish I used reacted with the paint. I got a little discourage and decided to try this kit. I learned a lot. I do have my eye on that new Airfix Fresco but recently it became hard to find. Anyway, I'm working through my duplicate kits in my stash and the next one might be a Starfighter in Canadian livery.

Looks good, Rui! Nice NMF, what did you use? When you said there was a lot of oversized rivets, you weren't kidding...

Airfix released rebox recently (with Polish silver-blue livery) which might explain the availability issues

Thanks Gordon. I used Vallejo Air Aluminium and Dark Aluminium. First time using Vallejo paints. The metal ended up looking textured which didn't show in my test sprays so I think it was the Stynylrez white primer.

Nice result with an old kit.
I had this kit and several others from KP in my stash. I sold them all. Instead I have build the Airfix and Hasegawa Mig-17. More fun.
Only brave men or women are able to build the old KP kits 🙂

Thank Johan, I figured that if I can do a half decent job on a old difficult kit like this, then I should be able to a reasonably good job on a modern quality kit.

Nicely weathered, though the accuracy was not the aim 😉 The borrowed decals come from MiG-23 actually, that served here too.

My kit was missing one and I left them off until I can make one, then it was forgotten after being put in the cabinet. Perhaps on the next trip to the shop I can find something suitable from Evergreen or Plastrux and make replacements, since I still have another kit for comparison. Sharp eye there Bernhard!
