Squirrel!!!! My B-25 is still my main focus, but I am going to get started on this resin bird.  Its HPH's beautiful L-39.   Ernie finally talked me into going resin.  I went with the L-39 because it's a type I've flown and its always held a neat place in my heart because of how and why I got to fly it.  For now I'll just be cleaning the parts and removing pour stubs.  I haven't fully decided on which scheme yet, but quite possibly the one I flew.

I never saw this till today, Tony. This is one big and super fast squirrel. :)

You’ll do your normal exquisite, super clean work on this one as well, my friend. HPH kits have a built in power to amaze and absolutely frustrate you. Simultaneously. But when done, you’ll have an exquisite model of one of the world’s most beautiful jets.

come to think of it, Aero Vodochody blessed us with what? 3,000 of these beautiful jets over the years? And improved versions of them are being produced today with no end in sight.  

And no mainstream IM kit in 1/32...   Blasphemy! Treasonous! Conspiracy!

Love to see a L-159 ALCA in 1/32 released Ernie, that would be awesome.:wub:

Danny, I’d do a happy dance around my dining room table. Naked. On stilts. Picking my banjo. With the blinds closed though. 

Why we have no decent modern L-39 family in IM is way, way beyond my pay grade. It’s a small jet, used in every corner of the world, and is gorgeous no matter what angle you view it from
