This is the 1/72 Eduard kit built as a Czech Air Force Aero L-39 C training aircraft.

The cockpit details were improved with Extratech etched parts and Pavla Models resin seats.  

The camouflage  represents L-39 C of 1st Tactical Squadron from the Pardubice airbase.

I used assorted Tamiya colors and Humbrol satin varnish. The weathering is done using post-shading with light grey and black colors, the panel lines were accentuated with black-earth oil paint. 

The decals are of excellent quality; however, the national insignia are little bit on the large side and the stencils are incomplete.
