The kit has an option for making a Mk 132 IAF aircraft. The aircraft was easily assembled without making any major changes or scratch building. The model is hand painted in local enamels and in-box decals were used.

This was the first time, I had tried my hands on weathering and I am very much satisfied with my job (though messed at a lot of places). I hope that you guys like it.
