    Other than decaling which you only get is the stars and a couple other things it's done. It was part of their fighter competition with the mig 9 and yak 15 which it did not win.

    It's a nice kit Having built several A Model kits the insides need to be trimmed, the fit after that for me is acceptable as the molds
    vary wildly in quality.

    Color call outs are for humbrol which in this case 147 light grey overall, 64 light grey landing gear bays, inside of wheel doors and wheel hubs, 145 medium grey for the cockpit, 62 leather for the back rest, 2004 gunmetal for the exhaust and gun ports,33 black for the tires and instrument panel

    So if you want a early russian jet other than a mig 15 or su15 on A Model is about the only way to go for now.

    well here it is Decals on and they sucked had one shred on me, I did have a spare from another kit not quite right but at least got all 6 on it.
    A model seems to use several different kinds of paper for their decals and like their kits it's hit and miss. Canopy is also bad but it is a limited run kit so if you get it keep that in mind.

    Good one Tim on a subject you certainly don't see every day. I have rotten luck with limited run kits, which is why I stick to the main manufacturers. :oops:
