Indonesia Independence Day 



This is the re-issue version of the old 1/72 Monogram kit I got from our local hobby shop a few years ago. From the beginning, I knew that I would make it as the Indonesian Albatross, but the problem was the markings and decals.

A good friend of mine, Mr. Sinang Aribowo came into help in providing a very good decal of Indonesian AF - Skadron Udara 5’s Albatross.

The model itself was built without any major drama. I only added a bulkhead for the cockpit and nose wheel and everything else was straightforward. Paint was from Gunze and Testors.
This Monogram classic kit will soon reside among other models in the Indonesian Air Force’s museum in Yogyakarta.
