Company: Aires Hobby Models
Base Kit: AMK L-29 Delfin
The L-29 Delfin was a jet-powered trainer airplane that was designed by the Aero Company of Czechoslovakia. An excellent kit of the Delfin has recently been released in 1/72 scale by AMK. Although this kit, in my opinion, is very good, our friends at Aires/Quickboost have found some areas to give modelers some additional options.
The L-29 Delfin was produced in several variations, including a photo reconnaissance version. This was accomplished by installing a specific conversion package under the fuselage. This version was used by the Czech Air Force and other Warsaw pact countries as well as by several export customers including Egypt and Vietnam.
AMK only produce their L-29 in the standard version so modelers who want to produce the photo recon version can now do so with this conversion set. This is a single part which fits on the bottom of the fuselage. The instruction sheet shows that the rear of the conversion is lined up with a panel line. What could be a simpler conversion?
