Kenyan FGA80. Matchbox kit with a/m decals. Had a few issues with this kit as some parts were mishapen or on the small side. Plus the nose is quite the wrong shape - didn't notice on the other Mb Hunters as I've built them as Tbirds and I knew the nose profile was wrong on those. Paint problems as well with the Light Aircraft Grey, very streaky no matter what I tried. Well at least it's another one ticked off the list.

Chilean FR71A. Frog FGA9 with a/m decals and underwing stores from spares box. Found this part made in a very dusty box so decided to finish it. Unfortunately I failed to read the decal details and thought it was an FGA71 so have had to paint on the nose camera apertures. :roll:
