is my "Alfa" in Fuerza Aerea Guatemalteca acrobatic team marks
(Guatemalan Air Force).
I saw the Academy "Alfa" model, I decided to build it in acrobatic
markings, representing the ones back in 1972 when they appeared in a public air
show, celebrating the 51st anniversary of Fuerza Aerea Guatemalteca.
kit fits perfectly, everything is in place except the ejections seats I had to
add a 1 mm. plastic base to raise them, 'cause they looked too low when I dry
fitted them, the rest is OK.
added the Eduard Zoom PE set and some scratchbuilt (antennas, speedbrake and

painting of a model is one of my favorite steps: the base was Chrome Yellow (Humbrol
188). It served me in double purpose: to check the seams and create a color base
like the original color of the primer used by our Alfas. The second color was
the Sand (Humbrol 93) and the Greens were Humbrol 116 to the darker and 117.
added also Model Master Metalizer Sealer to apply decals and MM Dullcote after.
I use the Aztec decal kit No. 72-017 "COIN Warriors". It was a project
released by Aztec and the "Asociación Guatemalteca de Modelismo Plástico
ESCALA" (Guatemalan Plastic Modeling Asociation ESCALA).
