Nice work Shane, those seats look fantastic! Excellent work on opening up those pod openings. By the way, they are rocket pods, shooting 2.75" rockets if I recall.

Thanks Duke, and I don' much about the pods, I'll do some digging

Anyhow, I added some weight to the nose before I joined the fuselage halves together

It looks like a jet plane now

Nice, that does look good - I like how those seats came out, good for 1/72.

The looks great!

Duke, I found out some info

The under wing gun is a Gunpod 30mm (DEFA 553)

And the rocket pod is a LR-25 rocket pod with ARF/8M3 50mm rockets

Thats awesome.
The RNZAF flew a bunch of these as advanced trainers. I can probably get some close up detail photos for you of one of ours if it would help.

Thanks!
Most cockpit photos show the instrument panel, I need some shots of the rest of the interior.

Excellent Shane! Thank you for the information.

By the way, what other options does this kit offer in the way of decal schemes?
